Goldbug 2in1 Harness Buddy Review and Giveaway


Goldbug 2in1 Harness Buddy
Review and Giveaway
(I HAVE NOT RECEIVED ANY COMPENSATION OR INCENTIVE FOR THIS REVIEW.  THIS REVIEW IS BASED ON MY OPINION OF THE ITEM BEING REVIEWED.)




There aren't too many items that got me as excited to buy as this little Harness Buddy from GoldBug.



The one pictured here is the doggy harness buddy.




A friendly way to keep kids close and safe in crowds, or during family outings. This harness also doubles as a backpack. A great solution for difficult, everyday challenges and an ideal way to keep kids safe. 
Package information:
  • 2-in-1 harness functions as both a backpack and harness
  • Adjustable straps and buckles for easy on and off, zipper back pocket, and a removable tether strap
  • Made out of a unique, extra soft fabric for comfort
  • 100% polyester
  • Machine washable
  • For children 18 months and up
  • Tether is approximately 4 feet in length
  • Item dimensions: 12" x 6" x 4.5"
 
 
One of the amazing gifts that I received from Lucas's therapists is the ability to see the therapy usage in any product!  As soon as I saw the monkey harness I knew that I had to purchase this for Lucas!  This harness is an amazing help for any child but I speak for myself when I say this is completely AMAZING for Lucas's SPD issues!  I knew that this would make taking Lucas on outings so much easier for me.  

It wasn't until I got home and opened the package when I realized just how incredible this was going to be for us!  
 
I love it because I am able to have one hand free when Lucas has this on!  It has a detachable strap, and a little pocket in the back.  My immediate thought was OMG, I can put his wrist/ankle weights in here!  Sure enough they fit right in and we are able to use this for therapy for him!

This harness gives Lucas the snug fit that he needs to make him feel like he is getting deep pressure when he needs it. He also feels like he is being hugged by the monkey from the back which is another form of therapy we use with him.  When he is really out of control we put the harness on him for about 15 minutes at a time with the wrist weights inside the pocket and it calms him down almost immediately!  This can also be used as a 1st backpack and I thought this would be perfect to help him with adjusting when he has to go to school later on this year.

He has NO sense of danger or limits at all so having the strap on the back is such a blessing to us.  We are able to give him his space and keep him close and safe at the same time.  We used this for the first time this week in church and I can't tell you what a relief it was on my arms by the end of mass!  Lucas is a FIGHTER!  He does not like to be held so when he needs to stay put for any length of time, its fight or flight!  This gives him the feeling that he has his freedom and doesn't have to fight anyone off.  It also gave me such a break on my arms!

 
The most important thing that I noticed with Lucas was the bond that he has with this monkey.  You have to realize, Lucas has not bonded with much of anything in his life!  He just doesn't care!  He LOVES this monkey.  He walks around with his monkey like it's his best friend.  He hugs and kisses him.  Takes him to bed with him.  This is the first time he has ever had any type of bond with any of his toys!  

My overall impression was that this harness was just a good product all around.  So much so that I felt the need to tell someone at this company how grateful I was to have it and how much it helped us with Lucas's SPD issues!
I wrote to Goldbug and asked if I could do a review on this product because of how much I loved this product.

I wanted to share our experience with other parents who may need something like this for their child who may have similar problems that Lucas has.

They were so happy to hear about our results with their product and were happy to have us review this product for them.  They also gave me one to share this with our viewers so they can try it for themselves!  Thank you Goldbug and thank you for making such a great product!
 

Giveaway
I am so happy to announce that Goldbug has offered to give one of our "VERY LUCKY", readers a Doggy Harness of their very own!  The doggy is a PERFECT choice for a boy or girl.  I know you will love this as much as we do.

    I would love to have one because my almost 2 year old is very independent and this way she could walk next to me without having to hold my hand. It is cute too!

    I would like this because my daughter takes off running when we go places and when I try to hold her hand she screams that I'm hurting her. Someone's going to turn me into child protective someday with her screams!

    I'd love to have this because my daughter is constantly trying to run off by her self---this way she could have her own freedom and I can feel safe at the same time!
