Standing child carrier

Piggyback Rider

Designed for kids two and older weighing up to 50 pounds, this child carrier offers a unique, much-less-tiring alternative to the old fashioned piggyback ride — plus a better view for little ones! The Piggyback Rider wears like a backpack for parents, while the kiddo stands on a foot bar and is buckled into a harness tethered to the shoulder straps. There are handles for the rider and the deluxe version features a pocket, water bottle holder and carry bag.
