Moms & Dads Love the Piggyback Rider

Posted by The Piggyback Rider Team on 18th Oct 2017

The Piggyback Rider is a child carrier that is made for children ages 2-4 years old or up to 50 lbs. It helps keep families connected, and outdoors exploring. Many parents find the Piggyback Rider to come in handy when the little ones start to slow down while hiking. Even if you’re not spending the day hiking, in crowded areas you’ll never have to look for your child, or fear they’ll wander off. For places like zoos and parades, your child will have the best “seat” in the house. Now, we could go on and on about the benefits, but don’t just take our word for it. Check out what other parents had to say!

“Made my NYC trip better. Took my 4 year old all around Central Park including the zoo. Thanks to this great tool she had tremendous fun and no whining occurred.”

“This product is awesome and exactly what I was looking for. I originally wanted it for my three year old son who loves hiking with us but has very poor vision so often needs to be carried. He is at the age where he doesn't want to go in the baby carrier because well, he's not a baby. However we use it for both my three and five year old. I love all the features it has and my boys love having their very own hydration backpack. It is very easy to adjust for different heights both for the person carrying the child and to adjust if switching out children. We conducted a few safety tests before hitting the trails. We buckled the kids in and had them try to fall back into the bed and they tried so hard to fall but couldn't. I also had my son step off the bar so I could see what happens if his foot slipped, again the child safety harness kept him up. Being a parent I think safety is the biggest concern and this product passed with flying colors. We got tons of comments on it and the kids had so much fun.

I was fortunate enough to receive this product at a discounted price for my honest and unbiased opinion.”

“This is just what I was looking for. I have a 3.5 year old who I take hiking in the mountains, I needed something for an older kid. All I could find was the carriers for younger kids with max weights of 40 lbs. This fills the need. She is too big for the smaller ones but cannot keep up on the longer hikes on her own. Perfect! Thank you for making something that fills the gap!”

“I purchased this to tandem carry my 3.5 year old with my 5 month old. On the front I use my Lillebaby all seasons and the Piggyback Rider on the back. I don't use it for long periods; I only use it when she gets tired and needs a break about 5-10 minutes tops and it's perfect for that. My only complaint, my 3.5 year old found the whistles and won't leave them alone.”


“We bought this about 6 months ago and have since used it for a 5k walk, SeaWorld, SD Zoo and Wild Animal Park. It gives our daughter the best seat in the house, she can see over everyone! I've seen some reviews say this is uncomfortable to wear, my wife and I find that to be quite the opposite! It distributes your kids weight across your whole back instead of carrying your kid and having to constantly switch sides. We are leaving for a 2 week road trip through 4 National Parks from CA to CO then onto SD and I couldn't imagine doing this without the Piggyback Rider! We love it, our daughter loves it, and best of all our backs and shoulders love it! Thank you!”
