Stand Tall

Even the most resilient little kids can tire easily when walking at the park, the mall, a sporting event or family outing. Next time they need a lift, try The Piggyback Rider, a standing toddler and child carrier that’s lightweight and compact, with a 6-point safety system. The carrier is a cross between a backpack and a small step stool. The child is securely tethered with harness clips, as they stand tall on a rear foot bar while tightly holding shoulder handlebars (weeeee!). Designed in Bethesda Maryland by active dad, Johnny Lifshitz, the Piggyback Rider is for toddlers 2 1/2 years and older, but the adjustable straps make it easy to accommodate young children all the way up to 60 lbs. Kids love the height advantage, rest, and closeness that the standing platform provides, making this the perfect pick me up for both parents and children.

    Hello Grommet community! We are a family owned and operated company and the dad inventors of the Piggyback Rider: Standing Child Carrier.

    With eight children between us, we have done our fair share of carrying kids and realized that there had to be something better than a bulky backpack carrier or stroller, which is how the Piggyback Rider: Standing Child Carrier came to be. We’re tinkerers and inventors and collaborators - we're proud of what we've created, and we're excited to share it with you today! Are you ready to Ride the Bar?

    This is the best way to carry a kid, because no matter what, we all will have to carry a kid at some point. Why not make it easy! Great idea and product.

    @Wayne Since being launched into the market, the Piggyback Rider has received more than a dozen awards, from magazines, trade shows, bloggers and creative groups. We're thrilled by the recognition, which has extended to print and television coverage. But, most of all, we win the hearts of our kids as they Ride the Bar!

    Would the Piggyback Rider be good for travel or might I have any problems at the airport?

    @Wayne Yes and No. The Piggyback Rider is ideal for travel, because it weighs less than 3 cans of soda and is the size of a rolled towel. We have traveled with the Piggyback Rider through countless airports and our existing customers have traveled with their children across the globe. Aside from sending the carrier through the x-ray, there are no problems with it at an airport. And, when traveling through an airport, the Piggyback Rider is perfect for catching a connecting flight with your little one.

    @Bryan Anywhere! When not on an active adventure, we use the Piggyback Rider in the grocery store, mall, outdoor fair or heading to a ball game. Most of our customers look to use the carrier primarily when traveling with kids.

    The only help you need in getting on an off the Piggyback Rider is your child. They quickly learn to step up on the bar (much like a step stool) and clip the safety harness themselves. The easiest way to start is by kneeling down or having your child climb on a park bench. From there, it's a quick step up and clip in.

    Check our Piggyback Rider YouTube videos for some demonstrations.

    Does the child need to remain standing the entire time this device is in use, or can they sit down as well?

    @Mary The Piggyback Rider is designed for the children to stand. This carrier is specifically geared for children who are climbing trees, playground equipment and bunkbeds. They are active ALL THE TIME! To this end, the children are riding the bar, but leaning against the adults back, much like we would rest against a table or pole.

    Additionally, we designed the carrier to be easy on-easy off, which allows the kids to quickly change between riding and walking.
