We have both - they are much of a muchness, I've never had any safety concerns about either. I like that the Littlelife backpack can hold quite a lot (drink / snack / house keys etc), and it's really easy for (an adult) to unclip the top strap when you don't need the reins part any more (e.g. when you get to the park). That said my children have, by a margin, preferred the Goldbug - the cuddly animal (we have a monkey) can do wonders for persuading a reluctant toddler.
We use the little life back packs at work, have done for the last 3 years, they have been on hundreds of 2-5 year olds and be tugged, pulled on e.t.c and we've never had a problem with them, infact we love them, we only have two in a private nursery setting.
I have an out of control active 22 month old DD. We've been using the Littlelife reins for a good few months and haven't found any problems with safety. She really tugs on those reins so I think if there were any problems I would have found out by now?
Wish they would make a tantrum calming model ... Perhaps it could emit some calming vapors that could be stored in that little backpack?? Still, the backpack is a good size for storing miniature gins teddies.
Hello, My DS is very active 19months and loves to run around. I started looking at reins which we can use it out and about. I read a lot of reviews and thought Littlelife toddler backpacks with reins and Goldbug animal harness sounded ok. But off course there are always positive and negative reviews so I am confused which one to get. Some people says the rein placed at the bottom (Goldbug) is not safe, and others says the rein placed at the top (Littlelife) is not safe...
My first concern is safety.
Any experience of these products is much appreciated.
