Let’s talk stroller accessories! Do you want to turn your hand-me-down Graco into the Porsche 911 Roadster Express of Library Storytime? Have you always dreamed of putting your baby in one of those faux sheepskin stroller burrito bags even though it’s not actually that cold out? Or do you just want someplace to rest your giant coffee while you pull that CVS receipt your baby has been chewing on out of his mouth?
Either way, we’ve got you covered. Here’s our list of all the best gear to trick out your stroller.
Best Stroller Accessories:
Skip Hop Cup Holder
Great for coffee, water bottles and more, this Universal Cup Holder offers hands-free convenience on the go. From strollers to shopping carts and more, the holder securely connects to the included universal hub to keep drinks at your fingertips as you stroll. You can find it on the Skip Hop site.
Baby Buddy Secure-A-Toy
Safely (and inexpensively) secures toys, pacifiers, teether, etc. to your stroller. There's a ton of color to choose from at buybuy Baby.
Veer Misting Fan
This sucker is a fan AND has a misting function with up to 10 hours runtime (low fan, low mist), using a rechargeable battery. It was made for the Veer Wagon but it can fit any standard cup holder (including your cup holder in the car – sorry kid, mama needs misting!) You can find it at Pottery Barn Kids.
Basically, mosquito netting for your stroller (can use with pack n’ play too) that protects against bugs, bees, mosquitos & flying insects. Tropical vacation, anyone? I found this one at Target.
Skip Hop Grab and Go
Made out of neoprene, aka wetsuit material, so good for insulation (and very sporty) and includes a detachable wallet/phone pouch with a wrist strap. You can find it on the Skip Hop site.
7 A.M. Enfant Blanket 212 Evolution
Perfect for very cold weather, this is like a warm little sleeping bag for your baby. The top is adjustable and removable for temperature control and it forces baby to keep their damn socks on because they can’t reach their feet to pull them off and throw one into a black hole, never to be found again. Wish this came in adult sizes and I could be strolled around in a fuzzy sleeping bag, permanently. I found this one at Target.
7 A.M. Enfant Warmmuffs
At first glance, these may seem dumb but they are actually brilliant because they stay with the stroller bar – not on your hands. Easy to access your baby, your phone, your coffee without dropping or losing a mitt. You can find them at Target.
Buggyguard Anti-Theft Retractable Stroller Lock
I think it takes a special kind of asshole to steal a baby stroller, but they are pricey so it happens. This lock has an extended cable length to loop through one or two wheels to lock your stroller to any stationary object. It has a 4 digit resettable combination dial so you don’t have to worry about losing any keys. It fits all strollers and keeps lock tucked out of the way until you’re ready to use it; Also doesn’t interfere with collapsing the stroller. You can pick it up at Walmart or this one on Amazon.
Munchkin Brica Deluxe Snack Pod stroller accessory
Who doesn’t love snacks on the go?! The tray easily detaches for dishwasher cleaning and the quick-attach clamp can attach to almost any shape, tube, rail or seat. You can find it on their site or on Amazon.
Guzzie + Guss Ride-On Stroller Board
When you have a toddler who wants to walk but needs a place to hang when they poop out. This board fits most strollers and no adaptors are needed. You can find it at Walmart.
Note: if you have a Mockingbird stroller, their riding board is amazing! It sits off to the side so you're less likely to kick it while you're walking.
There are tons of great toys out there. Keep an eye out for ones that can be clipped to the stroller so they aren’t jettisoned on walks. Skip Hop makes some of the best ones.
