The Special Tomato EIO Pushchair is a larger special needs buggy that provides mild to moderate positioning support and is an all-in-one, a lightweight stroller with accessories that make it easier for parents and carers on the go! We’ve teamed this with the Buggypod IO, an innovative clip-on pushchair side seat and single pushchair in one! Simply attach to the side of the pushchair, transforming it into a ‘double’ buggy when needed, and folding up neatly when not. Amazing!


The Special Tomato EIO Pushchair is the best of both worlds…a special needs buggy that provides mild to moderate positioning support AND a lightweight stroller that provides all the bells and whistles that make it easier for parents and carers on the go!

The Special Tomato E10 special needs buggy is an innovative mobility solution which combines a classic pushchair design with the support and functionality required by children with mild to moderate postural needs. Suitable for children from infancy up to 41kg (approx 8-10 yrs old), this is a buggy that’s versatile to grow with your child.

When you need a pushchair for two and have an older disabled child and a younger sibling to transport together then why not use a Buggypod Side Seat which attaches to the Special Tomato EIO to make a ‘double’ buggy!

Special Tomato EIO standard features include padded hip and trunk laterals, a padded headrest and a 5 point harness. There’s also a sun canopy, shopping basket and a lightweight easy to fold frame which will fit easily into your car. For kids who need a little more positioning, the Size 1 and 2 Soft-Touch Liners and Soft-Touch Sitters can be inserted into the pushchair.  There is also lots of storage with a large shopping basket under the seat, two water bottle holders on either side of the stroller and a large pocket for keys, cell phones etc on the back of the canopy.

With front swivel wheels, the buggy is a breeze to push and manoeuvere whether inside or out. Engage the swivel wheel lock on the front wheels, just two clicks, and venture on. The large airless wheels and increased stability of the locked front wheels make a huge difference when you’re going over rougher terrain.

The EIO special needs pushchair from Special Tomato is a mobility buggy unmatched in features, quality and price. With a host of accessories included, you get all you and your child needs in one affordable package. ST EIO Raincover included.

    Dear Delyth
    Thank you so much for your help! I took the special tomato and buggypod on the bus today. To be honest it wasn’t much harder than a normal pushchair but a bit trickier with space. I folded up the side seat. My daughter said she felt safe and she loves her little seat.

    The two of them love being next to each other and we’re playing and chatting as we were in motion. My son really loves how comfortable it is and it really helps in busy places for him to be able to get in and pull the roof over. He really likes being able to lay his seat back and this really helps when he’s tired! Saves a meltdown definitely ! We got through some situations that we would have had a meltdown without it.

    It’s tricky in some places due to the width but generally not too bad once you get to know where not to go. It’s heavy pushing everyone up hills but actually has very good handling! Generally I just push the tomato handle but if it’s a tricky corner I have use the buggypod handle simultaneously. Please feel free to share my feedback /pictures if it helps.
    Best wishes and many thanks,
    Michele. X

    The buggypod io is excellent as a mini pushchair. Really handy! Handling is brilliant , easy one handed and the handle extends up plenty. (I’m 5’4 but I think would be fine for a taller person too) I had a passenger who is 3 years old and about 98cm tall (pic with purple coat).
