Caspian is fast. I mean really fast. He took his first steps two days before his 1st birthday back in February but then didn’t take another for over a month. Our baby boy had this peculiar zombie crawl and even then he was surprisingly fast. He is also very curious. Where he can have a complete meltdown if I leave the living room for a moment to pop to the kitchen, he’ll happily run off to explore when we’re out and about. Often without even looking back.

What to do about this? The buggy plays it’s part but at 20 months he wants to run around, too. This is fine when we’re in our closed off garden, at soft play area or at the park where I can get to him before he gets into (too much) trouble. But sometimes he’s desperate to get out when we are shopping or he loves running around when we travel. Especially when we go through busy airports. So what’s the solution?

Toddlepak from Trunki in the foxy red design

The Toddlepak can be used as training reins like here for when your little one is taking their first steps and then later on to stop them running off once they’ve mastered the walk.

We’ve loved using our Toddlepak from Trunki. It comes in a range of cute designs and we chose the fun and funky red fox named Felix. The first time he was to wear it back in the early summer I was anxious as to whether he’d even agree to have it put on. My concerns were put to shame and he happily accepted the reins. They have a fastening on the back meaning the child can’t reach it nor open it. Even if they could reach I doubt they would be able to as I struggle at times. Though this is an advantage as you need to be certain your child is safe.


You can adjust the size to fit and grow with your child. As mentioned above it really comes in handy when I travel with Caspian on my own to Copenhagen. Juggling suitcase, a changing bag and a toddler means I can relax a bit more knowing he can’t just run off.

It will also come in handy here in November when we venture out for Bonfire Night and later in the year for the turning on of Christmas lights and even New Year’s Eve. We don’t often take Caspian out in the evening but the Toddlepak has reflective details making him extra visible in the dark.

The Toddlepak retails at £17.99 with free delivery.

  1. I love toddlepak yellow- Leeroy the lion
    It matches my sons jacket. He’s 21 months and I’ve just started him walking outside although I do find it hard when he runs away from me lol

  2. I love “Felix” but they are all so cute and so different from the reins of the past. Thanks for the chance to win!

  3. I think we would choose Ollie, because of the lovely shade of purple and because we love owls. 🙂
