Last year, I headed to Las Vegas to check out the latest in children’s products at the ABC Kids Expo at the Las Vegas Convention Center. I spent two days walking the MASSIVE halls and found myself bored with product after product being a slight variation of something I had already seen. Luckily, there were a few products that really did stand out. The Piggyback Rider is an alternative to traditional child carriers which embraces the concept of the traditional piggyback without destroying a parent’s back. Now this was something Trekaroo had to test!
Trekaroo Superoo Ginger was assigned the Piggyback Rider to review and her family ended up loving the product. Truth be told, using the Rider did take some getting used to. According to Ginger their “first few attempts with the Rider were a little tricky. Once I adjusted the arm straps to be as tight as possible and realized the foot bar needed to be quite low, there was much less strain on my shoulders. It also took my son several rides to figure out how to adjust his feet so he wasn’t constantly shifting his weight (which can throw off your balance) and to realize that he wasn’t going to fall.” However, Ginger says that “after working out the kinks, we have taken the Piggyback Rider practically everywhere we go.”
Kids love the Piggyback Rider because besides being fun, it also gives them a higher perspective on life. Our favorite short people suddenly get to see the world from mom and dad’s level and they couldn’t be happier. Suddenly, tots can see the lion sleeping in the corner of the cage or the drum major twirling his baton in the big parade. And, when their little legs get tired on hikes, the Piggyback Rider gives kids the option to take a rest without forcing the entire group to slow down.
