Children are often reluctant to wear reins; they do not like their love of freedom and exploration of the wide world restrained in any way. They would prefer to keep us at our wits end panicking as they rush about, when all we want is to keep them out of harms way.
My friend was hopeful trying out Goldbug reins would be a more positive experience and she was not disappointed. We were sent the Buddy Puppy Ivory, but there are so many to choose from (a staggering 25 in total), that your child will definitely find a firm favourite amongst them.
With an RRP of £19.99 they are not much more expensive them plain reins but the added element of a fun character means your child is more receptive to wearing reins. So much so my friends son did not want to take them off! You even have a little storage pocket, where he kept his dummy and a flat teether. This way you will never be without a dummy when you have an emergency crying situation on your hands!
My friend felt she had good control and grip of her son and the reins were well made and strong. Whilst they were off on their adventures she received plenty of complimentary remarks off people, so she relished in the praise! A well-behaved son walking nicely with a cute puppy on his back made life seems much brighter. Much better than trying to coax a toddler along holding hands, where they manage to weave away at the slightest glimmer of excitement, if you pass a puddle, a flower, or an interesting coloured dot on the floor that’s it you have lost!!! Whilst they run off to see whatever they have found they might fall or trip and obviously as parents we worry about the dangers of the road.
I would definitely recommend these reins, I am just a little sad my boys made do with plain reins now because these would have been a real hit! It might have made my battle with reins a winning one… these are so great even older siblings want to get involved!
