Hi. I've just this minute joined the site and will hopefully post more interesting things than this, but this issue is concerning me. I got here by Googling 'children's reins' as I'm looking for a set to use with my toddler grandchildren. Can anyone recommend some that don't have a difficult-to-press snap-on fastener? My hands are a bit iffy. Many thanks. Pamela
These little backpacks with a strap attached are certainly very good and my grandchildren have all used them. They come in different makes and colours and you would have to check the chest fastening if you have trouble with stiff clasps (I do too, but the ones on the backpacks I've come across have been ok). They are firmly fastened round the child and the strap is just as good as reins. I am a firm believer in reins, as I wouldn't trust any toddler further than I could throw him/her and so we keep a set of Lewis's reins (reasonable clasp) in the house so that if the grandchildren visit without their backpacks I can still take them out without worrying.
