The Piggyback Rider: A Harness So A Child Can Stand On Your Back

May 14, 2018


This is the $95 Piggyback Rider, a set of two harnesses (one worn by the adult with a foot-bar and grab-straps at the shoulders, and the other by the child with two carabiners that attach to the adult's) that allow a kid to stand on your back indefinitely without falling or you having to hold them. Obviously, it's perfect for a parent wearing stilts and a long black cloak so you can pretend you're a two-headed ogre.

Keep going for a couple more shots and an as-seen-on-TV style commercial while I fondly recall how my dad used to float me just above his head with a bunch of helium balloons tied around his armpit.



Thanks to Brian But Not That One, who promised me a piggyback around the office, which I plan to collect on.

    We took a trip to the zoo with another family who has every kid gadget imaginable. They brought this along. At one point, the dad decided he wanted to get the kid on this. It took about 5 minutes to set up (longer than the kid actually stayed on it) and looked absolutely ridiculous.

    Oh yeah that metal bar constantly hitting your lower back looks REAL comfortable.

    Who is in charge these days? The kids, or the adults? This will be remembered 20000 years into the future as kids ruling over adults and we will become slaves to our own spawn... or are we already??????????

    Children run the world. Marketing is targeted to the youth. Fashion's target demographic are young up-and-comers. Music, movies, etc all targeted toward children. Why? Well, it's easier to sell to young minds that aren't completely formed yet. Also children have pull with their parents. If a kid is whiny and bitchy enough they'll want toys and all the whatever shit that advertisers push for.

    It's a strange world....

    And when the kid gets tired and tries to sit down or jump off? What happens then? 40# launching itself backwards stands a very good chance of pulling me off balance and landing on them.

    Eric Ord sent me.

    He told me to tell you all that he loves you.

    (And that 95 bucks for this is about 90 bucks too much)

  • Eric Ord


    I'd give my right eye for this

  • Geekologie

    somebody send one to Eric and see if he's a man of his word
