Little Mr is now at the age where he is interested in everything, he wants to see everything, touch things and hear things for himself. He is becoming increasingly independent and this is very much the case when we are out and about getting the jobs done. He wants to walk everywhere. He wants to run up the hill to the shops near our home and he wants to see what’s around the corner before anyone else. Of course, it’s endearing but crikey, it’s frightening. Luckily for me, we have been using the Toddlepak from Trunki.
The Toddlepak is a fabulous invention. It’s a safety harness that toddlers wear over the top of their clothing and you can attach a pair of reins to the harness so that they are safely in reach when you’re out and about. The toddlepak keeps Little Mr at a safe distance in front so he feels like he’s out on his own but close enough for me to know he is in safe hands.
The harness is easy to fit with adjustable straps that clip together at the back. The clip is easy to use and feels very secure. One size fits all but you can adjust the size of the straps to suit the child. To adjust the straps, lift up under the front of the harness and re-adjust the reins by simply threading through as much strap as is needed.
The Toddlepak is available in a range of colourful designs including a green dinosaur and an orange monkey. We were sent an adorable red bear design which Little Mr loves and will happily wear for a walk outside. The best thing about the reins is that because they’re behind him, he can’t really see what they are doing resulting in less tantrums from an independent toddler.
We have been using the Toddlepak on our walks and outside when we need to make sure we have more than just an eye on Little Mr. The Toddlepak reins are great for training little ones to walk in front of you at a safe distance and the reins are easily detached for when they’re not needed.
The Toddlepak is available online from Trunki for £17.99. We have really enjoyed using the Toddlepak. Little Mr doesn’t object to wearing the reins and we’ve been able to enjoy family walks knowing that Little Mr is safe on the reins and enjoying every step along the way.
