Parent Reviews and Comments
The Piggyback Rider is a great product. Our toddler loves it just as much as we do. The convenient bright orange storage bag is lightweight and has a shoulder strap for easy carrying. The carrier itself is very simple to use and unlike other carriers you don't need to watch a DVD to work out how to use it. It can be unpacked and ready to go with toddler on board in about 30 seconds, which is very handy. Hubby loves the fact that he now has use of both arms/hands and is no longer being choked while DS is on his back. The child is happy as they can easily communicate with the parent and also see at the same level which is really good when bush walking and pointing out things of interest. Another benefit is that the air can flow around between the two parties which means not as hot and sweaty as other carriers tend to be. I think this would be really useful if going out to very crowded areas such as markets or theme parks. No worry about the toddler wandering off and getting lost.
The Piggyback rider has just made all those times trying to lug around a tired grumpy 4 year old a thing of the past. It's compact and easy to carry around when not in use, it's a breeze to put on, and my DD can't wait to get on and enjoy the view. The harness system for the adult is easily adjustable, and it only took minutes before I found the shoulder strap length and bar height that worked best. The safety harness for the child is ingenious, easy to put on and comfortable. The weight of the child is distribted across your core body and shoulders, and it feels stable to wear after getting used to the extra weight. In large crowds the Rider is fantastic as instead of being bumped by everyone my DD is looking out across everyone's heads. We absolutely love our Piggyback Rider. I so missed baby wearing, and now I can have my DD up close again. And it's a great thigh workout too :)
I love this product! It is so easy to use and my 3yo son thinks its great to ride around on my back above the crowds below. I can use it anywhere, from the shops to a festival and no longer have to worry about him running off or getting lost in the crowd. It comes with its own convenient travel pouch and is lightweight enough to take with you anywhere you go. Easy to put on, I highly recommend this product to anyone needing an easy way to transport older toddlers!

I saw this product  reviewed on a chat show and thought what a great product.  i searched and bought one from Sydney Kayaks in Australia.   the instructions recommend a few times of use to get use to it, but I found it comfortable from the the first use.  my almost 3 yr old loves it and while out at busy markets she is out of harms way feeling like 'lord muck'.  A light weight product that is quick and simple to use.  Easy to store.  also easy on the back.  my shoulders were abit uncomforatble to begin with but after using this product a few times and slight adjustments, I now have no problems with it.  I highly recommend this product,its well worth the spend.

The piggyback rider is the ultimate carrier for a toddler who wants to be in on the action but doesn't want to walk long distances! The piggyback rider is easy to put on, comfortable to wear, light and easy to store & confortable for the child also! My husband and i both enjoy wearing the piggyback rider as we feel it really involves our daughter in any activity we choose to participate in.

Great invention, will get plenty of use in our family!

The piggy back rider is a very convenient and light weight way to carry 2-5 year olds whose legs get a little tired whilst walking. I have twin 6 year olds and a two year old and we are a very active family who like to go hiking especially when on holidays. We used the piggyback rider on our last holiday and it was so good to be able to go walking as a family.

My two year old got on and off with ease during the walk depending on her mood and my back was still in good condition at the end of the walk. It packed up easily inside our case without taking up much room, and my two yearold was always happy to step on the platform for a piggy back. It was much better than my old back pack that we used to use.
