My Buggy Buddy Clip

Advantages: handy, easy to use, padded to protect buggy, cheap
Disadvantages: not made for use on a stroller
When using the big Graco buggy it's no problem because I simply chuck them on the bottom but if I'm using the stroller I have to try and fit the bag handles over the stroller handle bars. The kids race into school when the doors open so getting the bags off quickly was posing a problem for him.
I had months before purchased a buggy clip from eBay for £2.59. It came in handy when doing bigger shopping trips because I could easily slip a bag handle onto the clip and move on. I never liked how my handbag would get crunched on the bottom of the buggy so having it clipped higher up was nice.
I saw it the other day and wondered if it would work on the stroller. It would obviously hook on fine as it is merely a large carabiner with a foam bit on one end to stop it from damaging the buggy. My only worry was that it might make the stroller too back heavy and knock it over. Thankfully a child's school bag and lunch box aren't overly heavy items so it doesn't cause a problem.
When on the stroller the clip falls down the handle and hangs behind the seat which is a bit low so I prefer it on the bigger buggy.
Currently selling on Amazon for £1.48 and if you have a medium to large buggy it's great. On eBay if was advertised for the Phil & Ted buggy and others of a similar sort of size.
Word of warning: don't hang bags with long handles as they then bash the wheels.
Quick update: On the Graco big buggy there is a bit that sticks out whish usually hold the parent drinks holder. When the drinks holder wasn't on I tried hanging the buggy clip on that so I could use a bag with a longer handle and the result of this was a little tear in the foam on the clip. It's nothing major and no one but me will ever notice but at the same time I thought I'd mention it so that no one else makes the same mistake.
