Lascal Buggy Board Mini vs Maxi – which is better?

Imagine the scene above – you’ve gone out for a nice walk in the park with your toddler and new baby in a pushchair.  You’re relishing in getting some fresh air, the baby is sleeping and your toddler is having heaps of fun running around, spotting flowers, squirrels and bugs.  

A perfect day?  It is until that moment when your toddler decides he can’t go on any longer and that there’s no way he can walk the 10 minutes home from the park.  

Screaming ensues and you end up having to try and carry him while you manoeuvre the pushchair with one hand.

Sound familiar?  Even if it’s not happened to you I bet you can relate to it happening!

It’s hard to get out and about when you have very young kids, especially if you have toddlers that are resistant to walking far.  Sometimes it seems like it’s just easier to stay in or send them in to the garden to play rather than taking a walk.  

However, one way to try and help the situation along is to get a buggy board.  

These are special stands that clip on the back of strollers and have wheels underneath that provide a platform for tired toddlers and kids to hitch a ride. They can make a stressful walk happy again and we all want a fun walk with our kids!

One of the best brands of buggy boards around at the moment is Lascal.  They make two different kinds of boards – the mini and the maxi.  In this article I’m going to be looking at which is better and what the differences are between the Lascal Buggy Board Mini vs Maxi.

Quick Look – Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi+

Lascal Maxi+ with seat for tired toddlers!

Just to give you another option that you might not have considered – the Lascal Maxi+ is another to consider and it has the seat and the Maxi buggy board in one.

The seat is removable so you don’t always have to have it in place. If you think you’ll do enough walking that your toddler might want to sit down it’s worth having this extra option.

Other than that it’s the same as the Maxi Lascal BuggyBoard, just a little more expensive and you get everything in one go rather than having to buy separately.

Lascal Buggy Board Mini vs Maxi – what’s the difference?

There aren’t huge differences between the two boards but as the names suggest one of the boards is slightly bigger than the other.


  • First of all the Mini is more suited to lightweight strollers and is designed with umbrella strollers in mind.
  • The Maxi is suitable for children up to 6 years old while the Mini says suitable for up to 5 years.  Both have a weight limit of 44lbs (20kg) although the size difference of the maxi might allow for a slightly bigger child.
  • The Maxi has bigger pneumatic wheels that are good for uneven paths and park walks. The mini
  • You can attach a saddle to the Maxi which can give your toddler a seat. You have a choice of either getting the Maxi+ or buy separately at a later date. Here’s the saddle on its own.
  • You cannot fit a saddle to the Mini
  • The size of the Mini platform is 30 x 16.5cm approx and the Maxi is 36 x 17.5cm approx so a little larger and better for wiggly children.
  • The Maxi is slightly more expensive than the Mini by around £20-30.

They are both

  • universal fitting – they should fit 99% of pushchairs available
  • have a variety of colours and designs

Which Lascal Buggy Board is best?

My personal opinion is that the Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi is the most versatile of the two of them.

I think if you plan to get outside for walks in the country more and might encounter slightly bumpier paths it will suit you much better.  

You also have the option to add the saddle at a later date if you don’t go for the Maxi+ originally.

If space is an issue, you’re only going to use it for regular paths or you only have a very small umbrella stroller anyway then the Mini is still a great product.
