|"Trend-setting, lightweight go anywhere Piggyback Rider™.
Weighing less than three pounds and the size of a rolled towel, the Piggyback Rider™ is the first and only child carrier that allows you to comfortably carry a child up to 60 lbs on your back. With the ease of a standard backpack, the Piggyback Rider™ provides a shoulder mounted foot bar for your child to stand on, integrated grab handles for your child to hold, and a safety harness to secure your child.
You don't get choked; your hands are free; and you walk in a more natural upright posture, engaging core muscles. With less effort, you can carry a child farther and longer.
Children (2½ - 7 years) love the height advantage, rest and most of all the extended quality time with their parents. The Piggyback Rider™ has unlimited year-round use, while hiking, touring, shopping, walking, watching, exploring, wandering, bonding at amusement parks, carnival, sporting events, malls, markets and everywhere else you may go.
Made from high-grade nylon and bar-tacked for added strength, the Piggyback Rider™ has met or exceeded CPSC testing standards. A multi-function carry bag is included that serves as a mudflap, messenger bag, stuff sac or small pouch. "
There's a point, somewhere around the time our kids turn three, that they make the transition from "able to walk just fine" to "unwilling to walk no matter how many times and how nicely you ask." Unfortuately, even though most dads really love to carry their kids, that's just about the same time that our backs starts to give out. This is where Piggyback Rider comes in. Designed to accomodate kids as heavy as 60 pounds (althouhg it's better suited for kids 50 pounds and under), this well-built product shifts the child's weight forward, over your hips, for a less-back-destrying ride. Handles on the shoulder straps (the ones ovre Dad's shoulders) enable your child to hang on tight without choking you out.
