  1. Absolutely fantastic!

    Posted by on 3rd Feb 2018

    As keen hikers, we are encouraging our 5 year old daughter to share our love for the outdoors. She’s too long for the traditional carriers and doesn’t like to be stuck in, as she likes to join us walking but just can’t manage the distance. The piggyback rider is the perfect compromise. She climbs on when her little legs get tired but can get off as and when she fancies a walk / to explore.
    The design of the backpack makes it easy to carry, it’s comfortable on the back /shoulders and is very lightweight and transportable. We even use it to go walking to the local mall, something we couldn’t have done with our 5 year old in tow prior to owning the piggyback rider. We’ll Be using it for Disney later in the year as well - genius!
    Would highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

  2. Best thing I packed for Disney!

    Posted by on 2nd Feb 2018

    Watching people with strollers trying to get through the Disney crowds, I was so happy to have my toddler in the piggyback rider! Packed it in my suitcase so easily and used it all week at a sports tournament weekend for my older daughter. We logged over 10 miles a day easily and he could jump on or off as he wanted. He loved being a head above to see all the parades and sights. So many people stopped to ask what it was and take a pic of it. They had never seen it before ! I couldn't be happier with a purchase !

  3. Awesome

    Posted by on 6th Jan 2018

    I bought it for my son and daughter in law, they hike a lot. They have it a thumbs up.

  4. Great product & service

    Posted by on 16th Nov 2017

    We love the concept of this product because older children can have an option to walk and not be too much of a strain on the parents when they need a piggyback ride along the way.
    They gave great customer service when I called to inquire about replacement of a part -and shipped one out to us.

  5. Goodtimes await...

    Posted by on 7th Oct 2017

    I did not know just how much fun my boys and i where going to have until i bought this. Strong straps, sturdy footbar. Childs harness gives you piece of mind the the lil one isnt going anywhere. We go everywhere with our piggybackrider. Whoever invented this deserves a hug. I wish the childs harness had a chest clip like the adults. You have made an amazing product for amazing people

  6. Child loves it

    Posted by on 12th Sep 2017

    My daughter loves it. Easy to use and best of all she gets to see so much more.

  7. Best kid carrier

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2017

    We love the piggyback rider, our use it every day to take my three-year-old to school and back. Also use it for hiking in Rocky Mountain national Forest, cooking at the stove, mowing the lawn and just about anything else you want to do together. I would recommend this to any parent who would like to have hands-free but still have their kid with them. We love you piggyback rider thanks.

  8. We absolutely adore this thing!

    Posted by on 4th Aug 2017

    We absolutely adore this thing! My kids love it, makes my husband's life easier (he does most of the lifting these days!) and it's easy to travel with.

  9. So many uses

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2017

    My family purchased the piggyback rider and we have used it for family walks, visiting the science museum. Soon we are planning to use it in the airport and family vacation. It provides my daughter with Independence and a better view when she gets tired. A great investment.

  10. Takes some practice, but it's worth it

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2017

    I would have liked a little more instructions for how to get it to fit just right and get the weight to carry properly. It took a lot of trial and error to get things working so we were both comfortable, but now my son and I both enjoy it. Haven't used it at a big crowd event yet, just walking around town.
    Nothing against this product, but a word of warning from pure physics. There's no getting around the weight of the child on your back & shoulders. Mine is 40lbs and if you're not already in good shape that gets cumbersome in a hurry. Wish I would have had one of these a year ago!
