You want to take your child with you on excursions and adventures but the arms, the shoulders and the hips have just so much carrying in them. Along comes the Piggyback Rider, made of incredibly lightweight material that is solidly constructed to actually make the child-toting experience for for you both. It is very easy to use, includes climbing buckles for a secure fit, and it is very compact, storing away when not in use in its own multi-purpose storage bag. Many parents expressed pleasant surprise when they learned that getting a child into the Rider was not a two person endeavor. Once up and moving the weight is distributed evenly and instead of walking hunched over you can actually stand and walk upright.
