We have been testing a variety of universal footmuffs over the last few months. We have gathered together a range of footmuffs that are universal and will fit on a wide range of pushchairs and strollers. Whilst many of the pushchair and stroller brands make their own footmuffs, many parents want something a little bit different, and in some cases more practical (and cheaper). If you don’t like the offering from your pushchair brand, it is worth considering something more universal. You may find that an alternative pushchair branded footmuff will also fit your pushchair – so it’s a good idea to shop around for something that works for you.
We gathered together some of the most popular universal footmuffs available to see whether they really were as good as they professed to be. Each one has been tested on a wide range of pushchairs and strollers by Parenting Expert self-confessed pushchair addict, Jo Studholme. What Jo does not know about pushchairs really isn’t worth knowing!
Buggysnuggle is a well-known and respected brand in the world of footmuffs. They have been on the market for many years and their tried-and-tested formula means that they are not only popular but we are yet to find a pushchair or stroller that we can’t make them fit on. This means you can buy with confidence, especially important if you are purchasing online. We love the fact that they are super soft and come is such a wide range of designs. Our favourite one has to be the elephants of course! They are longer than your average footmuff, making them perfect for older toddlers.
Our tester told us, “There is nothing that I can be negative about with this footmuff. It’s easy to fit, stays in place and my toddler absolutely loves it. I love the colours and designs Buggysnuggle are available in and this certainly ‘pimps’ up my pushchair!’

The water-resistant reflective outer layer and soft fleece lining ensuring that your little one is always dry, safe and warm.

This cover fits most buggies, offering style and functionality in a compact design.
Our tester told us, “I had never heard about Blinky before yet I have told everyone at baby group about this. I am converted! I love the fact that it is showerproof as my son absolutely hates the rain!”
