LittleLife recently sent* us a child carrier to review to take to Geronimo and Down By The Riverside Festival. We are also going to another festival in Llangollen too now which I’m looking forward to.
The child carrier they sent to us is the Adventurer S2 which is suitable for using from the child being 6 months to approximately 3 years old. Lucas was 3 in Feb and this is still perfect for him as he does get tired when we go out and will want carrying and this distributes the weight of him evenly and he has an anatomically shaped comfortable seat. The max load for using the carrier is 44lbs and Lucas weighs 22lbs. He also isn’t too tall which would need to be considered when using it.
The carrier has a kick out leg to create a stable base for when putting the child in the carrier.
There is an adjustable back strap as well to ensure it is the correct size for who is wearing it. I love this as it makes it perfect for any adult of the family to use. It was very simple to switch from my Dad using it to me using it.
The carrier itself only weighs 1.9kg, making it really light to carry and it folds flat for when it isn’t being used to store easily. I have purchased the transporter bag for it and when I’m not using it, it stays in the boot of my car, using little space and the bag means it is protected from any dirt.
Overall, I am really impressed with the carrier. It is simple to use and there were no fiddly bits or struggling to get him in it and then me to wear it. I can see this completely replacing the pram as I can use this whether we are hiking through fields or in town on a shopping trip.
Lucas was also sent a child’s ID bracelet which I love, they have them available in a variety of designs to suit any child’s personality which include ladybirds, bees, the gruffalo, unicorns, turtles, dinosaurs, clown fish and butterflies. Lucas chose a ladybird to match his Carry Potty. It is comfortable for him to wear and hidden on the inside are 2 ID cards. One side has space for name, date of birth, contact info and any other information. The other side has space for allergies and medication.
LittleLife really spoiled Lucas and also sent him a swim bag too which he is made up with as he started independent lessons a few weeks ago so now he only needs to take his swimming gear and feels like a big boy.
He was sent a fab frog design. It is made from tough, splash-resistant fabric, and can carry up to 10 litres of stuff.
It is easy to use with safe buckles for little fingers, and has a roll-top closure meaning Lucas can do it independently without the need to ask me for help.
There is also a hidden zip pocket in the back of the bag for any money or treasures that need to stay safe whilst they are swimming. In Lucas’ case, this is where his trains are kept while he goes to his lesson.
LittleLife have offered one of my lucky readers the chance to win a swim bag and poncho towel in the design of their choice (subject to availability)
