Piggyback Rider's Child Carriers Are So Easy to Use

"I was skeptical about how to use this product, but once we received it, we found that set-up and use was so easy. Our children between the ages of 2 and 4 love it. We find it makes our lives so much easier to go out and about."

Tried Out the Standing Toddler Carrier Design on Our Trip to Disney

"As we were preparing for a trip to Disney, I had an idea for a way to carry my son around on some sort of backpack frame. He just turned five and is too big / too cool to ride around in a stroller. Fortunately, as I did a little searching, I found this thing … it basically does what it claims.

Pros:
* Lightweight and compact
* Better load distribution and safety than putting child on shoulders
* Far more maneuverable than a stroller (Picture sprinting out of Disney parks post-fireworks. For that, this thing was AWESOME.)
* Gives the kid a great vantage point for parades, fireworks, etc., when you are in a sea of adults.

Cons:
* The child has to stand up. This isn't really as useful as I had hoped when the kid is exhausted. He wanted to sit down, so he still ended up on my shoulders when he was too tired to walk / stand.
* Not always fast / easy to put on - the hooks have what I will call "safety latches" - little indents that make them difficult to accidentally unhook under load. These also make them a bit difficult to deliberately unhook. It works fine with a little practice, but it generally goes best if there's a third person to help with the hookup between the parent / child harnesses.
* 40-60 pounds is a lot to carry around on your shoulders if you're not used to it. Unlike a "frame" backpack that distributes the weight to your hips, this puts all of theweight on your shoulders. After walking about seven miles through Epcot following my wife's military-precision "touring plan," the kid was feeling pretty good, but I was pretty tired.

The whole setup got a lot of attention around the park. Both parents and park employees stopped me to comment on what a cool solution it was. I wore the adult harness and bar almost all of the time just out of convenience. I was able to either sit on the bar or flip it up vertically beside me on most of the rides, thereby eliminating the need for me to put take it off and on throughout the day. On total, we found it to be a good purchase, though the requirement that the child always stand turned out to be a bigger deal than we had anticipated. However, if only just for being able to quickly enter and exit the parks I would buy this item again."

Must Have, Must Have, YOU MUST HAVE THE PIGGYBACK RIDER!!!

"I am a 41 year old mom, and my son is now seven years old. We used it in airport, at Legoland, and I used it to exercise with my son. it is comfortable even for women. I think my husband will enjoy the fit more than I because the product has to be longer than my torso, but I stilllove it, and since we can't travel with a large stroller, this is a must have!"

Both Dad and Son Love the Standing Child Carrier!

"I use this daily with my three year old while walking his siblings to school. He loves it. Whenever we leave the house he says, "Let's take the Piggyback Rider!" I love how easy it is to get on and off. At first I had it set too low, and the harness didn't feel right, but after raising the child so his elbows were at 90 degrees, the weight fell comfortably across my chest. For longer trips like the State Fair, we use the hip belt accessory (bought separately) and I could carry him all day. Such a great design because we can go at adult pace; the kid gets exercise from balancing/standing. Our son loves the view, and we can easily let him down to explore while hiking!"
