Trunki Toddlepak review

Now that Max is a fully fledged toddler, he relishes his independence – and hates going in the pushchair. He wants to be out on his feet, exploring the world around him, rather than watching it from a set of wheels. Now that’s fine most of the time, but he is still only small, and I need to be able to give him that bit of independence while still keeping him safe. That’s where the Trunki ToddlePak has come in.

It is essentially a set of toddler reins, but with extra. The ToddlePak fits over the shoulders and around the chest with a simple clip (similar to a rucksack strap) and comes with a dual purpose rein, which can be used as a training rein for those tots who are still a bit wobbly, or a leading rein for more confident walkers.

The training rein allows the parent to have more control and support the child, while the leading rein gives more independence and freedom while the parent can still retain control. A clever idea, and one that means you don’t need to shell out on 2 different sets of reins as your toddler grows.

The ToddlePak is also super easy to adjust. The fastening clip can be pulled in or loosened as required, and will adjust both the shoulder and waist strap simultaneously, meaning less faffing while trying to hold onto a wriggly toddler! It also makes it easy to adjust if you take your childs coat off or pop on another layer.

As well as being easy to use and very parent friendly, the fun and bright designs make them popular with the children too. Max loves the lion face on his ToddlePak, and the bright yellow colour really stands out in a crowd. We can easily unclip the rein section while he plays, just leaving the harness in place, then pop the rein back on when we need to head home.

Having used several types of toddler reins over the years, I can safely say that the ToddlePak is my favourite. I love how easy it is to fit and adjust, the 2 stage rein option, and the bright and funky design – much more exciting that boring navy, which means Max is more likely to want to wear it! As usual, Trunki have come up trumps with another practical and fun product.

    These are fab – we are just past needing reins with my middlest but will need them in a year or so for my newbie. These are adorable!! #triedtested

    The dual stage rein is a great idea – I’m quite tempted to get one now for Little B and use it on her big sister (who shouldn’t really need reins, age 3 – but she’s going through a running off and thinking it’s hilarious stage right now).

    Love the brightly coloured designs too.

    Another Trunki product to add to our collection!
