Baby Jogger Glider Board: Review
The Baby Jogger Glider Board easily attaches to the rear axle of any single or double size model Baby Jogger and provides adequate space for an older child to ride along on the baby’s stroller.
So it will really not work with other stroller boards?
The baby jogger city select glider board works perfectly with the City Select strollers, however, stroller users of other brands have raised some issues about it not working with their strollers.
If you use this glider board with other brands, your could come face to face with the stroller handle, so you have to be a bit careful when outdoors. Every time you hit a big bump, s/he might tip forward and hit the handle. That is something that you need to be careful about when using the board with strollers from other brand, in which case, make sure your child is old enough to stand on the board and is taller than the stroller handle.
Works with double stroller but doesn’t offer lot of adjustments for the double
You can attach it a Baby Jogger double stroller but it doesn’t offer lot of adjustments.
So with the glider board attached, you cannot fold it up, neither does it store well with the board attached.
Adjust the stroller handle position
Most parents keep the baby jogger stroller handle in the highest position so that their little one is able to get a clear view ahead.
Parents of city select (comes with a telescoping handle) raise the stroller handle so that their child has his/her head between the stroller and the handle.
Kids can either hold the handle or the back of the stroller; some kids put their head through the handle (which is fun for them).

Reviews / Q&A’s
Does the Baby Jogger Glider Board work with the City Mini?
The Glider Board is compatible with the City Mini stroller, however many people find that there is not enough space between the handlebar and stroller on the City Mini.
The Baby Jogger Gilder Board weighs 8.2 lbs.
Its not a universal board, it works with Baby Jogger brand but we are unsure of other brands/models
The Baby Jogger Glider Board can hold up to 45 lbs, which is quite a lot.
Yes it can. The fold won’t be as compact though.
Here’s what some of the users have to say about this product:
Its a great idea and my little one adores it; Works great with City Select and is easy to attach and take off as well. I wish I could attach an adult one and skate along with the pram :p.
Its a Life Saver
We use this with a City Select in double mode and its absolutely awesome; I also like the way it folds up, out of the way, when it isn’t needed. This is also durable and well made, handles 10+ miles of walking a week. The wheel rattles sometimes when it goes out of line with the rest of the stroller, have to kick it to get it back in place. However, it doesn’t happen very often though and is a minor inconvenience.
Baby Jogger Glider Board: Buying Links & Pricing
Overall, the Baby Jogger Glider Board is a sturdy stroller board that easily lets an additional child hitch a ride, and doesn’t require you to get a double stroller. The baby jogger stroller glider board works smooth on most surfaces, its easy to attach to the stroller, and folds away nicely when not in use. Its great for short trips outdoors, a wonderful product to keep your kids entertained through day-long excursions.
