Babystyle Oyster 3: Is the Oyster 3 footmuff worth buying?

Irene • 26 Jul 2022

Is the Oyster 3 footmuff worth buying - will it fit into the stroller along with a grown-up toddler, e.g. 3-4 year-old?

Is there a foot apron compatible with Oyster 3? (Oyster Zero apron does not seem to as it doesn’t cover legs properly in Oyster3 :( ).

Thanks!

Hi, Irene,

For a 3-4 years old, an Oyster 3 footmuff - nor any other, to be honest - will not be enough to really cover the child. At such an age where the kid is supposed to walk more than to sit (or at least go from one to another often), a footmuff is rarely necessary- usually just good winter clothing + a blanket is enough. Definitely would not get the Oyster 3 footmuff here, rather go to a stroller store and try a few out, but you might end up rather getting a thick blanket and good overalls for you little big one.

P.S. I quite liked the Lodger footmuffs, and they fit even a 3 years old, BUT it was a bit of a tight fit. The larger Lodger Explorer one that is already discontinued was even larger; try checking classifieds.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
