Greater Than One Kids Hold On Handles Review



Disclaimer:
  I was given the products in this post for the purpose of a review. 
I was not paid in any way to write this review.
All opinions are my own.


If you're new to our blog you may not know but mommy and I hate leashes. We actually did a post about it not too long ago after seeing a parent practically dragging their little one around in Walmart like a puppy. Mommy recognize that some people may really have a need for them but surely there are better alternatives out there. A friend of mommy saw this alternative and recommended it to mommy.

Welcome Hold on Handles by Greater than One Kids. Greater than One Kids is founded by two women with 6 children between them, one has triplets and the other a pair of twins, and guess what, there are no leashes to be found.

Yes parents it can be done!

Now on to my Hold on Handles but first we have to share this from their website:

Finally there’s a tool to help you teach your children to stay within arm’s reach—Hold-On Handles. 
With Hold-On Handles you can feel more confident, and your children can be safer, more active and happily independent when you are out and about together – a far better option, we believe, than a leash or harness.
Mommy and I received the Hold on Handles in the Plush Panda design. I was 18 months old when I received this and I hate being in my stroller confined all day long whenever we go out. There are times when I would rather be running around the mall or Walmart or even Target, away from my stroller. The Hold on Handles are recommended for ages 18m+ but before you decide to take your child out with you using this it is recommended you teach your child at home the significance of staying with you and not letting go. Mommy and I took it for a quick trial around the neighborhood and I admit that I did let go a few times but with mommy being consistent with me, reminding me that I needed to hold on and not let go I quickly got the hang of it.



Now for the real test! Mommy being the mommy she is thought that our quiet neighborhood during our trial was a hit. How about testing it out in a store. I would usually get out of my stroller in the stores and walk around but this time mommy said "no stroller", kinda brave of mommy wasn't it?

Did it work?
Shopping at Target using my Hold on Handles
It actually did! Mommy took me to Target and connected my Hold on Handles to the shopping cart and let me have free reign. I actually held on and listened to mommy. I was tempted to let go but I didn't. Mommy was really surprised and proud of me. Mommy even switched sides and we stopped and I actually stopped and didn't let go either.

I stopped and did not let go!
Now for the features of the Hold on Handles:

Carabiner snaps easily onto strollers
Comfortable parent wrist strap
Adjustable straps
Quick release buckle for added safety
Tested by the leading international safety testing company
Lead-free paint and non-toxic materials
You can purchase Hold-On Handles as a Double Handle Set or a Single Handle Set, and then customize them for up to 3 children by adding Spare Handles.

So you know that I'm going to recommend Hold on Handles right? Not only is it a better alternative although you do have to teach your children how to use it properly. With consistency and positive reinforcement it can be done. Now not only will I not be leashed but mommy can walk around with me and know that I'm close by and neither of us will be embarrassed. Greater than One Kids Hold on Handles gets my Two Tiny Thumbs Up!

You can connect with Greater Than One Kids via their Website, Facebook and Twitter. You may also be able to find a Greater Than One Kids Hold on Handles at a retailer near you. They are available in the US, Canada and even International.

    1. Hi Penny, Hannah might surprise you and may not need that leash backpack. This is a really great alternative. Mommy and I will never judge you. ♥ Madison

  3. I never did like the leashes for the kids... but.... this summer we had our grandson at the ocean with us and I was sure wishing for a leash so he could play easier in the water without having to hold my hand. Most times I am with you.... no leashes.

    That is a great idea to have the Hold On Handles. Cute too with the panda face.

    1. It is a great idea. Mommy and I detest leashes with a passion I should say. So this is a great alternative for us. ♥ Madison

  4. I really like the concept of this compared to leashes. With this you are teaching, not restraining. That has to be so much better for the child's development and self esteem.

    1. Mommy and I think so as well. It is better for their development and I agree, it is better to teach than restrain. ♥ Madison

  5. This is very cute and it is a great idea because we are always looking for places for the kids to hold on to when our hands are full.

    1. It can be attached to anything. Even your belt loops. It really is a great idea. ♥ Madison

  6. That's really good that she held on. My grand daughter has a monkey that straps to her and we hold it. She is an escape artist. Madison was very good. Cute little panda handles too.

  7. My husband is so horrified by kids on leashes. This one looks much nicer!

  8. That looks like a great idea. I was never a fan of leashes either.

  9. I never seen it and never thought about but it sure looks nice

  10. What a fantastic idea. I love this. It seems like something like this, although not perfect, certainly must help keep the child close to home base.

  11. Never heard of this, but it does look like a wonderful idea.

  12. Ooo, I love the idea of the handle! A great idea for flexible security!
    Thank you

  14. I really hate the whole leash thing. I never had problems with my energetic boys. Teach them the rules, expect them to follow the rules, realize they will break the rules, reinforce the rules and keep your kids with you. Why is that so hard? I really don't get it. I don't mean to sound harsh, but parenting isn't always easy but it is required.

  15. I did end up having to use the leash with my older son when he was young. Some may say oh you just need to parent your child, well I did parent my child but if you go to the mall or anywhere they can leave your side in a heartbeat and hey run so fast. I like this method as it is cuter and doesn't have the leash feel and look.

  16. This really has me thinking. I've also always been against leashes, but now have 13-month-old twin boys and have no idea how I'm going to keep track of them along with their two older brothers. I would like to think this would work with the right amount of practicing, like you said. Great product idea.

  17. Those look cute. So much more better than the leashes. I used the monkey leash once but felt weird doing so.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Wow, this is awesome! I've always hated seeing kids on "leashes" but we actually broke down and got one because since we moved and don't have a fenced in yard, it's so hard for us to take our two-year-old out with us when we take the dogs out. I'm going to look into this and possibly purchase one! Thanks for your great review!

  19. I like the idea but I know their dad would never let me use it.

  20. OMG perfect timing! We just went downtown yesterday and our toddler was running everywhere and my hubby and I were talking about getting something like this. I hate the 'leashes' too but this is cute! I am going to check them out for sure. We really need to get one ASAP.

  21. WHAT a GREAT Idea! Nowadays need to keep our kids safe!

    ReplyDelete
  22. How cute is that! What a great idea as well x

    ReplyDelete
  23. What a great idea! We need help when out on the town with little ones.

  24. This is really awesome because of the cute/fun design, I couldn't imagine any kid wanting to let go. Great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh so sweet! Awesome idea! Even I am loving it!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I love this it is so cute and such a great idea. My daughter doesnt want to get into the cart all of the time and I am constantly coralling her to stay right by the cart. This would work awesome

    ReplyDelete
  27. That is really neat and very much like what I have seen day cares use. I do think it's a good alternative to the harnesses.

    ReplyDelete
  28. What a great idea, I need this for my youngest :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Why is it after my kids are out of the toddler stage all the cool stuff is invented? No really? I could have used this when my kids were small. Perfect thing to get new mom's!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Daycares have been using something similar for a long time. Kids know they need to hang on-I've seen those little people crying and throwing a fit but never letting go lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh I really like this a lot. It is much better than the leashes I had to use one on my son because he would run off. I think kids would be more apt to hold a cute little animal.
