Don't get cold feet

Lightweight and compact, the Maclaren Universal Packaway Footmuff is ideal for Hong Kong's climate and small homes. The footmuff fits the length of all single-seat Maclaren pushchairs and folds into a self-contained pouch for easy storage. Available in red, charcoal, black and navy. HK$549 at Maclaren, shop 2010, IFC Mall, Central, tel: 2295 1618.

Step aboard

A buggy board attached to the back of a pushchair can be the saving grace of a child's tired little feet when his younger sibling has the seat. The Lascal BuggyBoard Maxi has a width-adjusting system so it can fit almost any pushchair, including major brand models available in Hong Kong. The board has an anti-slip surface, as well as generous ground clearance, making it easier for the pusher to walk behind. HK$740 at Bumps to Babes, units 14-18, 21/F, Horizon Plaza, 2 Lee Wing Street, Ap Lei Chau, tel: 2552 5000.

Drive a bargain

On-the-go entertainment for buggy-bound babies comes with this Lights and Sounds Buggy Driver. The dashboard includes a steering wheel, movable mirrors, gears, indicators, horn and numerous cause-and-effect lights and sounds. The driver also fits on most car seats. HK$300 at Early Learning Centre, 315-316 Prince's Building, Central, tel: 2810 1218.

Carried away

An all-in-one bag that hangs off the back of a pushchair and has space enough for a baby and parents' accessories can only be a good thing. The Borsa bag by Italian baby brand Peg Perego is large, practical and made from a washable fabric. The bag includes a changing mat and holds a bottle, nappies and other general paraphernalia. Available in red, grey, brown and other colours. HK$699 at 0/3 Baby, Level 2, Citi Store, Metro City Plaza II, Tseung Kwan O, New Territories, tel: 3194 4721.
