    I bought this item reluctantly as I am against leashing a child but my 2 year old son just runs off with no regard to anything, so I did it for safety reasons. When we got it, we were somewhat satisfied. It was very cute and looked like it would work well, albeit, the backpack was very small. We got it on our son for the first time and he started to walk off, not run, just walk and the leash completely ripped off! It’s like it wasn’t even sewed in! We couldn’t believe it! We took a closer look and saw the leg was starting to fall off as well…all from one little tug from my 2 year old. Quality control is seriously lacking with this product!

    With four kids, the oldest being 4 yo, we felt we could use a little help in corralling the family when we’re out. I knew I wanted a leash but I wanted something that didn’t make me look like some sort of control freak parent to others. I mean let’s face it, when a kid doesn’t want to be in a stroller anymore, no one wins by trying to keep him in there. So when I found a harness that looked like a stuffed animal, I knew this was exactly what I was looking for.

    We used this with my daughter when she was 18 mo. She had been walking for almost a year already but we wanted to make sure we didn’t lose sight of her when we’re at a mall or zoo. She loved it and even her older brother, who just turned 3 yo at the time, loved holding the other end so they would walk together. It was actually very cute.

    However, when we tried to use this with my third child when he was 18 months, this was outright dangerous. He would constantly pull and if you don’t give in and move with him, he would fall forward and land on his face! We simply had to keep him in a 5-point belted stroller even when he would have a meltdown. With kids like that, there really is no great solution (he’s not easy at home either).

    In short, if you have a calm child, this might be perfect for you. However, if your child is a runner, this type of leash will not work since it pulls him from the back. Maybe something that straps to the wrist would be better.

    Cute and 21mo old son loves it (only reason I’m giving more than zero stars), but we used it ONCE and the stitching at the bottom of the shoulder straps and also at the harness attachment ripped. He pulled on it hard once, I heard a noise, and sure enough, all of the important seams had come apart. This totally defeats the purpose of having a harness for a toddler on the go. If the kid can’t pull on it without it completely ripping apart and him escaping, what’s the point? Very false sense of security. My son likes it, and I do too, but only if it works. If I get a chance I may bring it to a tailor to reinforce the whole thing. Otherwise I’ll have to return it.
