    Jenne, I'm insanely jealous of all your travels.

    Great harness! I have actually tied my child to me, though he was a bit of a mommy's boy so it probably wasn't entirely necessary, and I have to say that is a very creative and colorful way to do it!

    Re: original post, I still love my WF, though for some reason I have felt compelled to bring so much junk that I just can't fit into one any more! I'm hoping by the time I go to the UK and Ireland in the spring, I can do it all with an underpacked WF.

    Zuri is indeed a good sport and as beautiful and gentle as her gorgeous Mom.

    Thank You for sharing Dorayme, just precious.

    Dorayme! You are so creative! And the children have imaginations too. God bless you all!

    ROFL! Zuri is such a good sport. You could just pick her up by the 5-point star in the back and clip her to a bag! Or trade out an Absolute strap on the lower part for a springy bungee ride. ;-) Great for keeping track of swift toddlers. My elder son is taller than I am now, but I remember when he was a little Houdini on wheels.

    You just had to ask if it had been done. . .


    Zuri reports that it's actually quite comfortable


    and despite the fact that I would NEVER actually tie my children to me, unless they were in a sling, the multi color (wasabi, cayenne, plum, black) and adjustable strap length (SE strap) made for a rather convenient and light weight tether to my MCB :)




    Janine, some of the things that you type have me rolling for hours. After I picked myself up off of the floor, I knew I had to at least try it!

    For those who would duplicate, I cannot vouch for the safety, security, or wisdom of trying to reproduce this stunt. I did it just for giggles :)

    The Africa trip was just chaotic. We took huge duffels of supplies for the conference and for the students we sponsor through Compassion International. My hotel room looked like an Office Max. But the Tri-Star kept my personal stuff organized.

    It must be pretty chaotic to travel with twins! And the O-rings can be used to tether all those extra binkies and toys with loops. Come to think of it, the rings and extra-long key straps on the Tri-Star might have come in handy when I needed to tether my runaway-prone toddler. ;-)

    Janine, I loved my Tristar on my trip to Africa this summer. Never had trouble getting it onboard (even with a 15# limit and overbooked planes). It was even better at the hotel - it kept everything so organized in a way-disorganized week. Thanks to the pockets and organizer pouches, I knew where everything was. What a great system. That will come in so handy with your little ones! Hope you have a great time.

    Then I'm glad I could oblige. :-)
