Orbit Baby® Introduces the Sidekick™ Stroller Board

Sidekick™ Allows Your Second, and Even Third Child to Ride Along in a Fun and Comfortable Skateboard Position

NEWARK, CA--(Marketwire - September 8, 2010) -  Orbit Baby Inc., makers of premium infant-to-toddler strollers and car seat systems, announces the introduction of the Sidekick Stroller Board for Stroller G2. The Sidekick is the latest addition to Orbit Baby's line of thoughtfully designed accessories, and part of the Orbit Baby system that truly grows with your family. It is the first and only ride along stroller board with the look and feel of a skateboard.

For families with multiple children, the Sidekick can accommodate a toddler, while a younger child rides in the stroller. To accommodate 3 kids, attach two Sidekicks to one stroller for unprecedented family flexibility.

The skateboard like, side-riding Sidekick is fun and comfortable for growing kids, and stays out of the way so that parents won't stub their toes like with other ride along boards. With its fun skateboard riding position, the Sidekick is the only stroller board that an older child will actually ask to ride.

The new Orbit Baby Sidekick Stroller Board can be used with children from age 2 up to 50lbs. Sidekick benefits include:

  • Fun: the only stroller board that allows a "skateboard" side-riding position for kids
  • Grows with your family: one or two Sidekicks allow for a second and third child to ride along the Orbit Baby Stroller G2
  • Comfort: side-riding position accommodates tall children without the stroller's handlebars in their way and gives parents unobstructed walking while strolling. Also, with a child on the Sidekick, a younger child can ride comfortably in any Orbit Baby seat, in any strolling position (including the Stroller Seat G2 in reclined, forward- and parent-facing positions)
  • Convenience: the Sidekick flips up and stays out of the way when the toddler wants to walk, and the Orbit Baby Stroller Frame G2 can still easily fold with a Sidekick attached
  • Safety: includes riding handles that attach to the stroller so a toddler can safely hold on while riding the Sidekick; board also has a gripping texture, similar to skateboards, for kids to stand on to prevent slipping
  • OrbitGreen™: PVC-free Material -- all materials, including wood treatment, gripping texture tape and adhesive, are carefully selected to be PVC-free; all Sidekick materials are also phthalate-free

The Orbit Baby Sidekick retails for $120 and is currently available for pre-order at select Orbit Baby retailers or online at
