Oh Wow: A Helmet With Handlebars For Piggyback Rides

October 4, 2016


This is the Piggyback Driver, a helmet with handlebars for giving kids piggyback/shoulderback rides so they don't put their arms around your neck and choke you out. The handlebars swivel left and right and light up flashing turn signals indicating which direction your kid wants to go. It also has a horn button for warning slow-walkers in front of you, as well as a turbo button for when your child wants you to go faster. I always want to go faster. That's why whenever I get a piggyback ride I wear spurs. Plus swing a battle axe. Now bend over, you're my new war mount. *digs spurs into ribs* Giddyup, to Old MacDonald's! Jk jk, new McDonald's I've been craving all day breakfast.

Keep going for a video.

Thanks to Davey W, who promised me a piggyback ride but then collapsed under my weight. I can't tell if he's still breathing.

  • My edzo just made a crude comment about me wearing one whilst I gave him a ride.

    I'm glad I watched the video because I was like "You mean the whiplash helmet!"

    But the handles do NOT move the helmet - so it's pretty cool. The kid could go crazy turning and if they were just a total Dennis the Menace I guess all the moving might hurt the dad - but his head won't be unnaturally twisted left and right. It's pretty cool is has a horn, blinkers and sound - and the dad's ears are protected from the sounds. I miss having a little one - but that is what grandkids are for - so have kids real young so you can be a cool grandparent. lulz

    Turning left and right, no pain! But wait till the kid learns Twist! Youch!!

    I'm all for fun things that encourage parents and their children to play together.

    Clearly, the designers of this:

    A) don't have kids, and...

    B) don't know how a knockout punch works.

    Buy one now before the recall!

    And when the kid falls off, they can now snap daddy's neck as a bonus!

    Speaking as a father of three, who are now all teenagers, I very much miss the toddler/should carrying days.


    This is more like a device for giving toddlers shoulder back rides. Larger kids are often given piggyback rides. Last thing I'd want is to let that kind of kid grab hold of my head and potentially snap my neck, lol.
