Advantages: Frees up your hands
Disadvantages: None at all for me
Anyone who has ever gone shopping what a buggy with know how difficult it is balancing bags without making the buggy unstable. With Jayden being very young he has the buggy seat laid flat and this makes getting anything in the shopping basket underneath his seat difficult so when I walk into town I usually end up like a pack horse laden down with shopping. That was until I saw another mum with a clip on the handle of the buggy, after a quick search online I came across the Buddy Buggy, a simple but very useful little gadget.
The Buddy Buggy comes attached to a card by a small piece of plastic which is easy to snip off. The card shows the outline of a buggy with the clip in use, it also gives the Buddy Buggy website down the side and along the bottom of the card there is a warning about overloading your buggy and causing it to tip over backwards. The middle of the card says " clip it on, clip on your bags, unclip and carry, easy". The Buddy Buggy is available in 3 colours, blue, pink and black, I opted for the black as Jayden's buggy is black.
The clip is made fro metal making it strong and has a foam covering where it hangs over the buggy handle, this not only stops it from slipping along the handle but also protects the handle from being marked, its slightly narrower at the top this too helps keep it in place on the handle. The clip has My Buggy Buddy written on the coloured part of the clip.
To use the clip is easy, there is a small lever that just pushes in to open the clip, once your bags are in place you release the lever and the clip is secure.
I have been really pleased with my Buddy Buggy, it has made shopping so much easier, I like to try to walk into town and back as it gives Jayden a change of scenery and also some exercise for me. The clip has meant I can keep both hands on the buggy handle and I don't have carrier bags hanging from my wrists which after a while gets a bit painful. I usually have at least 3 bags on the clip and this works fine. You could have more than 1 clip on your handle if you prefer to even out your shopping but obviously the more you hang on the buggy the more top heavy it becomes.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this little gadget, its so useful and frees up your hands. Its ideal for shopping or just your handbag, its also handy for a waterproof jacket. If you use a buggy then this may well be a good item for you. They are not expensive, I bought mine from Amazon for less than £5.00 and it was well worth the money.
Summary: A simple but god idea
