We've taken a look at 10 different baskets to show you some of the different options available.
For many of you, the shopping basket on a pushchair is a big feature and one that can be the big decider when choosing which one to buy. As a seemingly simple feature, there's lots of things to consider - Large or small? What kind of things will you be carrying? Do you need access from all sides? Does it need to be covered? The list goes on.
The basket on the UPPAbaby Vista is vast. Not only is it wide, but long too, allowing you to carry pretty much any shaped item. As the seat sits high on the chassis, it's accessible from every angle. It can carry a massive 5kg, so plenty of room for your shopping bags, changing bag and a small elephant! Plus it can be converted into a tandem without taking up the basket space - that's impressive!
Alternatively, for urban adventurers, there's the Cruz, which is a scaled down version of the Vista but still has a basket capable of taking 11kg!
Though not a massive basket, we love the storage pod on the Raspberry. For city dwellers who need a nippy little pushchair, the Raspberry has the ability to keep those all important items safe. A big plus is that you can still access the pod, even with the pushchair folded!
It's not a big basket on the Priam, but we like the clever magnetic flap at the rear. Not only can it keep your bags safe and dry, but it can also be pulled fully out to extend the capacity.
Instead of a usual shopping basket, Stokke have provided a bag with the Xplory that sits on a platform between the front wheels and is attached using two plastic clips. Though not the biggest space for keeping your stuff, it's well designed, and features an internal ‘net' bag to keep everything in place. The whole bag can also be removed and carried with the attached strap.
The Bugaboo Donkey not only features a spacious underseat basket, but when used in Mono, it can also be extended to add on a side luggage basket. This basket can be easily removed from the frame and used with carry handles to transport your shopping.
The shopping basket on the Micralite Super-lite is suspended from the frame between the front and rear axles. Though a tad on the small side, there's easy access from the front of the pushchair due to the shape of the chassis.
As well as an underseat basket, you can purchase a pair of handy storage pannier bags to fit onto the Orbit Baby pushchair. With a carry handle added for one-step removal and carrying, they fold completely flat while still attached, and have their own raincover stored to keep their contents protected. Each pannier can carry 4.5kg of shopping, so a whopping 9kg on top of your usual basket!
How do you find the basket on your pushchair? Do you wish it was bigger?
