My Buggy Buddy Clip
Advantages: Keeps shopping bags out of the way, very useful
Before my baby girl was born, I spent some of my amazon vouchers on some useful baby accessories, particularly items that I knew that people would be unlikely to buy us. One item that I bought after reading very good reviews, was this buggy buddy clip, which currently retails at just under £6 on amazon, although I recall that the price fluctuated a lot whilst I was watching it on amazon.
The manufacturers of this buggy buddy clip state that you just 'clip it on' to your buggy handle, then 'clip on your bags' and away you go. There is a rather large warning however on the packaging stating that this should be used sensibly in that you shouldn't put anything too heavy onto the clip, or do not overload it as the buggy could tip backwards. Common sense, but probably well worth warning some consumers about. It also states that bags should be removed from the buggy before the child.
On the reverse of the packaging, there are pictorial instructions about how you should use this clip in regards to how it should be hooked on the buggy, and then opened to clip on your shopping bags. The clip should be hung so that you can push the lever inwards rather than outwards to avoid damaging your buggy. The majority of the hook is cushioned with the only visible metal being the actual clip, so it shouldn't damage your buggy if you are using it properly.
Anytime we have had our quinny zapp buggy out, we have been using this clip, whether it to be going shopping, popping out to get milk or just going for a walk. There are certain things that I wouldn't use the clip for such as heavy items like milk, as obviously the buggy is likely to tip, and again that is where a bit of common sense comes into play. I do use it however for general shopping bags and even my bottle bag, which hangs perfectly on it. The clip is designed in such as a way that the bags don't swing as you move the buggy and therefore stay out of your way as you walk which is great. I have only ever had a couple of bags on the buggy using this clip at any one time, and have never had any problems. In fact, a few people have commented about how useful the clip looks, particularly compared to more plastic varieties on the market, and so it is worth putting the extra into a sturdier clip like this.
All in all, I think this was a great purchase, not only in terms of price but more importantly in regards to usefulness. I don;t have a lot of room in the basket that comes with my quinny zapp buggy and therefore having a clip that holds shopping bags and helps you to stay bag free as you wheel the buggy is of great benefit. As long as you use common sense and don't overload the buggy with bags clipped on with this, then it is a great item for any mum.
Summary: A great way to hold your shopping bags when out with a buggy
