We're a city family, which means that the kids and I do most of our outings on foot. Until recently, when we went out, the kids rode in a double stroller, with me doing all the work. However, they're now at a point where pushing them both in the double stroller is not too fun for Mommy. I've been letting them walk more, but when we're all on foot, it seems like I'm constantly having a discussion with one or both kids about the fact that, yes, they do need to hold my hand when we're crossing a street or parking lot.
So I was really excited when I found out about Gripsterz StayAlong, and when I got chosen to do a review of this product. Here's a bit about Gripsterz StayAlong, from its website:

Gripsterz has made our outings SO much more enjoyable. Vivian in particular, hates holding my hand with a passion and inevitably screams and yells when I request that she do so. But she's thrilled to hold on to the cute purple monkey! I forgot to take the Gripsterz with us yesterday when we went out, and she kept asking me for "purple monkey? purple monkey?" when she wanted to walk someplace. Ethan also likes holding on to the ring, so it's been a good way to keep the kids close when I need them close.

This is a terrific product to have if you've got kids and do a lot of walking in busy areas. I think it would be great for family vacations to theme parks and amusement parks- it's a great way to keep everyone close!
