Kiddy Adventure pack review

Kiddy Adventure pack review

We’ve been testing out the Kiddy Adventure pack for a few months now with our toddler. We love days out and exploring as a family but it’s not always easy with a toddler. E is just 2 years old so cannot walk all that far. We mostly use a pushchair when out and about but they have their downsides, like not being practical where there are lots of steps or where the terrain is not suitable (have you ever tried pushing one on the beach?). So we were thrilled to be invited to try Kiddy’s adventure pack.

The backpack appears quite big at first but at just 2.8kg it’s very lightweight. E weighs just 10kg (22lbs) but the pack is suitable for children weighing 7.3 to 18 kg. It retails at £179 which is comparable to similar products. The pack is well designed with padded straps and waist belt that help to spread the weight, making it really comfortable to carry. It’s really quick and simple to adjust the pack for different adults which is great if you want to share the work of carrying a toddler on a day out.

Ours is a lovely pale grey that we love but it also comes in black or spring green. The fabric wipes clean which comes in handy and even includes reflective elements to increase your visibility.

One thing I love is the stand that folds out so you can put it on the ground to get your toddler in and out. This is such a useful feature and the backpack is very stable like this. We found it a lot easier to put E in and out like this.

E must be comfortable in it as she never complains unless we stay still for too long. There is plenty of padding to the seat and also a 5 point harness (which is height adjustable) to keep her secure. There is also a built-in rain hood/sunshade and a couple of pockets at the back that you can store a few essentials in.

You can see from the photos how useful the backpack has been. We couldn’t have visited some of these places without one. Castles, walking in the snow and steep hills would not have been possible without it. It might even have been a better option for Edinburgh zoo too.

    This looks like a great carrier! We had an early one, when our eldest was a baby (nine years ago) and it was a back breaker. This sounds super comfy which makes all the difference. Fab review 🙂

      They have moved on a lot which does make a big difference.

    How I wish we’d had one of these when our kids were small! It looks very comfortable both for the wearer and the little one and I think that the folding stand is a huge advantage too!

    This looks such a good way to get around. My little boy is just 4 months & im just discovering now how hard it is pushing a pram on different surfaces! We like going to the beach so this would definitely be ideal for that.

    This looks like a really fantastic carrier. We didn;t really use them when ours were little as we had three minis to transport about.
