We travel a lot. We don’t like to put the stroller in our car because it takes up a lot of space. Usually our trunk is filled with snacks, cold water, extra clothes for the boys, diapers, wipes, medicine and whatever else we may need. The Freeloader takes up very little space in the trunk and the boys just love it! One thing that my boys just love to do is watch trains! We usually all go out together and my husband takes pictures and I make sure that the boys stay away from the tracks. They are really good at not going close because they have been around trains since they were babies, but you can never be too careful. My husband was excited because with Henry on his back if he wanted to walk to the train station to take pictures by himself he wouldn’t have to worry about Henry running around when he wanted to take a picture and I could stay home if I wanted to and get some work done.
Henry was nervous at first. Then I explained to him it would be like a “horsey ride” and then he was all for it. Once he was on it was hard to get him off..
This will be great the next time we want to go on a long walk and not bring a stroller or go to an amusement park. If you like to hike this would also be perfect. It has a little fanny pack type thing attached so you can put your keys and valuables in there.
I thought it was cool that I could even carry around Adam if he got tired. He actually said that he could sit on my husband shoulders while Henry was in the Freeloader. As funny as it was my husband didn’t want to try that. Haha! I will have to get a second one since they both loved it. With the Holiday’s approaching this would be a great gift for anyone with the kids. The weight and age requirements are posted at the end of my review.
The Freeloader is small enough to carry-on and stows away neatly, making it perfect for air travel, road trips and more.
