So, it can be so overwhelming when you're trying to find the best (and most needed) accessories for your new stroller, amiright!? So - I went ahead and put together a list of top accessories that have proven very useful when on the go.
1. Stroller Hooks
I LOVE these hooks made by Buggygear. They come in a few different color combinations and they are so handy! They are made of high quality materials that will last years. I have a set of these on all of my stroller and wagons and they are a true must have.
2. Stroller fan (option 1)
This powerful little fan has multiple bendable legs that allow you to wrap it around the canopy or frame of your stroller/wagon fairly tightly so little fingers can't easily take it off. It has several speeds and is very long-lasting. Comes in multiple colors to coordinate with your ride, too!
3. Stroller fan (option 2)
This is another one of my very favorite fans. I think this particular fan works best for use on stroller belly bars or the handlebar. I mainly use this for me when I'm pushing our girls around and need a cool down. It stays put and charged for a long time. A powerful little fan for sure!
4. Stroller lock
Let's face it, strollers and wagons are a serious investment and of course you want to protect your investments! This stroller lock is that peace of mind. Use it to lock up your stroller when out in public places like the zoo, the mall, etc. and you can't keep a constant eye on it. A serious must have!
5. Stroller mobile
If you have itty bitty ones and are utilizing a stroller or wagon as a bassinet or place to lay your baby down, this is a great on-the-go accessory. It's basically a traveling mobile that you can clamp onto the sides of your stroller/wagon to engage baby while you're out. It can be a great distraction when you need a minute.
6. Stroller caddy (option 1)
Ok... so there are thousands (no, really) of different stroller caddies on the market and choosing one of these alone can be a daunting task. Here are a couple of my favorites to narrow it down. This particular one is a larger option for families with multiple kids, a newborn, or just those who pack heavy. This caddy has tons of pockets and compartments to keep everything organized and tidy.
7. Stroller caddy (option 2)
Itzy Ritzy is a brand commonly known among parents for their high-end gear and quality goods. This simple stroller caddy is chic, modern, and has just the right amount of pockets to store the necessities.
8. Stroller cooling pad
This universal pad is a GREAT way to keep little ones cool on hot summer days. It has a layer of 3D mesh which allows for great airflow. It's also moisture-wicking to keep kids nice and dry. Did I mention it's also machine washable? Yep! No need to worry about stains or spills with this universal pad.
9. Stroller snack pod
Most strollers these days have their own snack tray or cup holder available. However, that's not the case with stroller wagons for some reason. There's only a few models that have a tray available. For those that don't, this is a common purchase. This little snack pod clamps onto the side of the stroller/wagon and allows you to store snacks, drinks, etc. when on the go.
10. Stroller multi bag
Now, if you know me, you know I am no stranger to strollers and wagons. That being said, the Pronto is one of my absolute favorites because of the quality and their accessories are no different. This multi-bag is the perfect storage add-on. It's very well-made and sturdy and can hold quite a bit! It has clips on the back that will allow it to clip to the frame of many strollers and wagons. However, this is an item I recommend for wagons mostly other than the Pronto itself. It comes in 2 colors, too. You can check these out here.
Well, there you have it! My top 10 stroller/wagon accessories. Hopefully this list will help narrow down the list for you. Have you purchased any of these? Have any other items you love and want to share? Send them to us at email@example.com and we just may use it in a future post.
Thanks for reading!
