Gripsterz - Stay Along Review

Please do not be offended when I say this -- I HATE seeing kids wearing a backpack harness! I don't know about you, but to me, those backpack harness systems remind me of a dog harness. If you use a backpack harness, I am not judging you! I completely understand ALL about rambunctious kids - I have three!

I know that public outings can be frustrating, especially with little ones! When I am out shopping with the kids, I usually have my youngest daughter seated in the cart, my son walking alongside me, and my oldest daughter trailing behind me. My shopping trips take twice as long because I am always checking to make sure that all three kids are by my side!

You could imagine how excited I was to have the opportunity to review Gripsterz - Stay Along (a cool alternative to a child harness)!
Gripsterz from ViveVita is a great new product that combines cool fun for little ones with a great function for moms and dads. Gripsterz eases the fears of being out and about with your little one.

Gripsterz is an adorable adventurous monkey attached to a ring that is swinging from a vine strap. The monkey is irresistible to grip and the vine is conveniently attached to a parent in many different ways. Kids will reflexively keep their monkey friend gripped tightly in hand, while parents are free to walk or stop as they desire.
Key Features:
*Interchangeable pieces allow for a variety of adventure needs.
*Easy to use
*Can be clipped to a stroller, belt hoop, shopping cart, luggage, purse, and many other portable devices.
*Great for crossing streets and parking lots, visiting museums, exploring parks, attending festivals, and traveling anywhere.
*Patent Pending
*Made of nontoxic materials

My Experience:
The Gripsterz kit came with one Grippy monkey ring with attaching clip, two vine straps (1 ft & 2 ft) with an attaching clip, an adult handle, a convenient storage bag and a Grippy book for kids.
Upon opening the package, my son was beyond thrilled that he had a new book! The Grippy adventure book was especially created to enhance your child's natural attachment to their new friend, Grippy!

Over the past few weeks, we have been faithfully using the Gripsterz and love it! At first, I allowed Jae'Sun to hold onto Grippy as we shopped, but that didn't work out so well. If something caught his eye, then he would just let go of Grippy and take off to go look at it. So I decided that the wrist-strap is the best method for us because it allows Jae'Sun to have (some) freedom BUT remain close to my side!


I cannot say enough positive things about the versatility of the Gripsterz! In just a matter of seconds you can attach it to a stroller, belt hoop, shopping cart, luggage, or purse. You can also adjust the length of the straps to give your child freedom to explore, but not too far! Thanks to ViveVita, my shopping trips are a lot less hectic and stressful. Ahhh, the joys of no more counting kids. :)
