The belt is not only designed to be fun for kids, but to keep them safe too!
We walked away from the stand that day very excited to be taking one home to try out.
So, the adventure belt is a new design of reins. It is totally different to most children's reins that you see out on the market. There are designs that are backpacks, ones you can put around there wrists, or ones that you strap around their body which is what we used to have. Usually these all have a lead sort of system which has a loop at the end for you to hold.
The big thing that makes this rein different to others on the market is that instead of you holding onto it, you strap yourself to it by putting it around your waste as well as your child's.
This I think is a much safer option, you don't have to worry about having that extra hand to hold onto them and there is no worry of accidently letting go. I also think it looks less like a lead and definitely more like a safety device.
Both belts are adjustable and the strap part connecting you and your child to the belt is adjustable too.
Lily and I have tried on both belts and we did need to tighten them both to fit us.
I haven't used reins on Lily since she first started walking. She has never really left my side and always held my hand, so I have never felt the need for using them. But I definitely would use these ones if I was at somewhere like the airport, or somewhere up high where she could fall. I haven't had the opportunity to use the reins yet seen as the places we have been, Lily stays by me holding my hand.
But we have taken the belt out and I put it on Lily so she could get used to the idea of wearing it. She was really excited to put it on and happily walked around with her new belt. We headed to the local park where we could use the little pouch that is on the belt.
Lily didn't realise at first that the pouch opened up but she got so excited as soon as she did. She started collecting twigs and leafs and putting them inside.
The pouch is such a great idea, perfect to collect nature when out for a walk, or perfect to put things like her money in for when we go to the shops. Lily usually loves to put the money into her pocket so I know she will love to put it in the pouch.
Another great thing about the pouch is the label that is inside. It has an area where you can write your phone number and also if the child has any allergies. So if your child wasn't wearing the reins that are attached to you, and got lost, people can help the child find their way back to you.
We really loved the panda design on the front and this is the perfect unisex choice. But you can also buy it in pink and in blue.
You can buy the adventure belts from the More 2 Explore website at a price of £14.99.

Just about everywhere, but think we would like to try it out in the local woods whether there's a small river so would be great for safety reasons when we go. Love the fact that it doesn't actually look like the traditional "restraints" so a great idea.ReplyDelete
