Wished there was a carrier for older children?

pbr-carrier-and-harness-w-letters-desc.jpg Wished you had the perfect kid carrier backpack for your toddler! The Piggyback Rider® is a standing child carrier for older children that creates a mutually enjoyable, effortless way to carry a child (2½+ years) on your back, replacing bulky backpack carriers and strollers. It functions like a backpack, utilizing a shoulder-mounted foot-bar to distribute the child’s weight (up to 60 lbs.) at your core, which enables a natural upright walking posture. The child stands firmly on the wide foot-bar, holding integrated grab handles and secured by a safety tether.

At this time we do not recommend the Piggyback Rider® kid carrier backpack for children with physical disabilities, including low tone.  We are working on it though!
