Tag*a*Long Product Review & Giveaway

I came across the Tag*a*Long website (HERE) back in August. These little contraptions were designed by a husband and wife team from Philadelphia for their own children. They were looking for an idea to make walking with their son a little easier. The Tag*a*Long was designed, developed and manufactured in the USA.

We first used our Tag*a*Long
at the Apple Orchard and a day
of site seeing

I thought that these were the BEST idea ever. Little Diva use to walk next to me while I pushed Little Dude in the stroller. She would wander ahead. Scary, when we are coming to intersections or driveaways/cross-traffic. Since her scary bike accident in August, she has been really fearful of crossing the road and sticks right by my side. Though this is a good thing, it can be difficult having her cling to my side, pull on the stroller, hold the stroller down and pull on my pants leg. I want her to feel comfortable walking along side me and have the right level of confidence again.

The Tag*a*long had been a great solution. Though we don't always use it 100% of the time, it's been a nice way to give her some sense of security, but also freedom. Little Dude and I tend to walk down to school to get her and she walks along side me on the way home (a one mile walk). She can hold it as we talk about the random events of her day (recess and lunch are the highlights, of course!).

It's also nice when Little Dude decides he's had enough of the stoller and wants to walk while I push the empty stroller (dang!). He enjoys holding onto the Tag*a*Long then, too.

These also work well with shopping carts and diaper bags, though we haven't tried that yet. There are no fancy contraptions and the tie on and remove easily from any strollers or carts. Recommended for ages 3 and up. Little Dude will be three years old in a few months and he enjoys using it.
