Traveling Days-Deuter KangaKid Carrier Review!!

Many of you may remember last year when I featured a fabulous kid carrier from Deuter on Hope's Cafe. I totally love that carrier, and have never seen one so well made or durable. However, when it comes to family vacation or a road trip, our vehicle is usually packed. I mean loaded! So finding room for the carrier can sometimes be a hassle. So, when I learned about the KangaKid from Deuter, I knew this was the perfect piece to showcase in Traveling Days!

The KangaKid is really and ingenious piece. When I opened it, I was surprised to see that it really looks like just a backpack (albeit a very well-made backpack).

Don't be fooled though. Simply open the yellow zippers, and you have...a kid carrier!

Awesome, huh?! I am totally in love with the KangaKid; it is the ultimate 2-in-1 backpack/kid carrier! Now you can carry your youngster and some snacks, small toys or books, etc. at the same time! There is a large compartment, as well as several smaller pockets to hold any little goodies you need to bring along.
Of course, carrying a child and some extras around can be uncomfortable-if the carrier isn't designed right. Thankfully, the KangaKid is designed for comfort! I love the extra padding on the shoulder straps and "fins" that fit around the waist. As well, Deuter included some extra cushioning on the piece that rests against your back, so it won't rub or chafe there either.

If you need a way to easily and comfortably tote your youngster around all day on vacation, but don't have much room, I suggest you take a look at the KangaKid-it's incredible!

  1. wow it really does look like an ordinary backpack until you show the inside. The padding looks really strong and cushy.

  2. I have a friend with a small infant. I'm going to be sure to tell her about this. Looks like an excellent idea.
