When your toddler starts toscream because you put them in front of the cart, you need a new plan of attack in order something done. The Eddie Bauer 2 in 1 Harness Buddy is a new idea for the old wrist leash, and it is much cuter. This is designed to be a backpack your child wears, with a tether strap, making it a bit more user friendly than earlier models. The backpack is a soft plush animal, in this case, a dog. There are also monkeys and bears, so that you can choose the animal your child prefers. It straps on through the front, and has a pocket to hold special toys. I like it because it allows my child the freedom to walk through a crowd without the danger of them getting lost. You can remove the tether to make it just a backpack for your little one, and the straps are adjustable for a comfortable fit. You can put this in the washer when it gets dirty, so ou are able to get a lot of use out of it. Highly recommended for the toddler on the go.
