Just when you think you've put all thoughts of geocaching away till next year a nearby series pops up. The series consisted of 5 or 6 caches in a circular pattern and for the most part was desirable as it is tarmacked. The girls have been fighting off a little cold recently so I thought it a great idea to get in some fresh air too instead of being confined to the house.
So we wrapped up warm and set off with the double buggy in the boot. We parked up at a play ground only to look round to see the girls in the back had decided it was nap time! So we set about getting the buggy out of the boot and installing our sleeping babies into it without waking them up! Sadly we didn't achieve this and they ended up waking up but they were very happy to be outside in fresh air and were enjoying the ride in their buggy until we ran out of tarmac! Ahead of us lay many fields with stiles in them it was not going to be possible to get the buggy over all of them!
Fortunately we had decided to take the Hobbledehoo an active child’s harness with safety leash designed by parents for their active toddlers who love skiing and everyday life. This enabled us to split up so the eldest went with her Daddy and baby returned the way we’d come with me. So our walk was not the complete disaster it could have been.
Since its arrival my eldest has loved the Hobbledehoo Harness I showed her what it did sliding it over her head and buckling up the sides and adjusting it to her body until a secure fit was achieved. Then I tried to take it off her but she had decided it was to stay put and not be taken off so I reassured her that even if we take it off we can put it on her again by putting it on and taking it off a few times. Then I stored it away out of my daughter’s reach until we needed it again.
Since our walk I have come to the realisation that the Hobbledehoo would come in handy when taking the girls to the local toddler group. It is not very far but our house is surrounded by roads and it would have been ideal to use it with her yesterday when we went. Sadly though we’d left it in the one car we have alongside the buggy and sling after the series at the weekend and it all went with Daddy to work!
The Hobbledehoo is appropriate for children aged 1-7 years old and currently retails at £30.00
