Peg-Pérego Switch Four: Can and should a sibling board be attached on this umbrella stroller?

Meryem rafqi • 23 Aug 2021


I already have this stroller for my 4-year-old daughter and I have a 10-month-old baby. I would like to know if I can add a small bench back so the big one can sit back and the small one forward.

(From original French: Bonjour j’ai deja la poussette pour ma fille de 4 ans et la j’ai un bebe de 10 mois. J’aimerais savoir si je peux ajouter un petit banc en arrière comme ca la grande peut s’asseoir en arrière et le petit en avant.

Hi, Meryem,

The answer is yes and no, actually. You should not, to be honest, add a bench seat or a sibling kiddy board in the back of an umbrella stroller because of the not-to-sturdy chassis and the possibility of making the frame, therefore, very loose to rattly if putting that much strain on the rear part.

That being said, there is already a small little place integrated into the chassis of this buggy where your older 4-years-old can stand on while holding on to the frame. Again, this is an occasional-to-emergency measure and your pushchair will get loose over time if overused this way.

Lastly, if you really need to attach a sibling "skate" with a bench behind, and you don't mind your stroller being perhaps structurally damaged over time, you can add a universal board like Lascal or Bumprider.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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