  1. Great Product, but can be improved

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    My Husband was very excited to get this product. We have a 2 year old, she weighs 30lbs. She enjoys using it but gets fed up of it after about 15 minutes. The foot bar should be a bit wider as her foot can easily slip from it. The harness hook is plastic and not as sturdy as I would like it. I would have preferred metal and the hand hold strap the material frayed a bit after 2 uses. Over all it is a fun product, but my very active child prefers to run. We have used the piggy back rider about 5 times since we got it.

  2. A must for hiking with a preschooler

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    We purchased this product before our family vacation to Glacier National Park in Montana. We have a child that is close to 3 that we knew would not be able to keep up with his older siblings on the hikes. He loved riding on the Piggy Back Rider. It was very comfortable to wear... not once did we experience back strain carrying him around. I highly recommend this product!

  3. Worth the wait

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    I saw an advertisement for this when it went viral one day. Earlier in that same day, I had taken a walk with my family, including my two year old son, to a nearby pond in my neighborhood. It was a hot day, and the pond was far enough that I had to carry him most of the way to and from our home. And when carrying him that day, I remember thinking just how heavy he can be. So when I saw the ad for this product, I knew I had to get it no matter how long it took to show up. I knew it was a product I could use for years to come because I have even younger children in the home that can use this after my son. So needless to say, it's a great buy. Very innovative because it solves a problem for many parents. I would highly recommend it to any parent with a young child.

  4. Best Idea Ever!

    Posted by on 27th Jul 2017

    My son is two and a half and 31 lbs and this is a lifesaver! I've only used it a couple of times since I just received it but it's great to be able to walk around markets and parks and not have to have him in a stroller. I do intend on purchasing the lower back support strap because it does tend to tire my back out after so long.

  5. super-comfortable way to carry my son

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2017

    As soon as I saw this product I knew I had to have it, and I knew it work well. It's such a simple concept, and beautifully executed. It's small size allows us to bring it on air-travel, whereas bringing a huge backpack for him would be really awkward.

  6. Simple and effective

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    We purchased the original model several years ago and its been used for both our kids as they grew up (now 4 and 8). Packs down small, pull it out of the trunk for those longer walks - give my younger daughter a birds eye view .
    A little learning curve for carrier and child regarding where to place the feet - but easy enough and comfortable.
    A solid purchase and I would recommend to active parents with small children.

    kids love it! My 48lb 4 yo twins fight over who gets to crush dads spine but dad likes it better than the other traditional carriers. Great for bigger kids on long hikes. We dont bust it out until the end & then the kids get all excited & motivated. dad complains about shoulders & lower back but nothing a few cold beers cant help

    Four year old grandson thinks it is great fun----and his Daddy's arms are free to carry the usual ton of beach paraphernalia. They have a good walk from the car to the water---so it is great!

  10. Made my NYC trip better.
