I have to apologise in advance; this is a long review. But I’ve written it with a little background, just to show where I was coming from when I bought the Hippychick Hipseat, and how I feel it has addressed those issues. I admit it; I bought the Hippychick Hipseat out of irritation. I love our...

“I'm a Hippy mummy”

published 17/06/2009

takes the weight off your back, can go buggyless

expensive

My son was quite a big baby, and grew out of his baby carrier at around 7 months. He seemed happy in his buggy, looking around at the world, for a few months, but then began wanting to be out with me again. I also wanted the freedom to carry him, being able to leave the buggy behind sometimes...

Light, compact and easy to store.

Not enough padding and straps can slip down.

I always loved baby carrying and used various baby slings up until my little girl started walking. Suddenly I was finding that my little girl started to get fidgety in her sling and I started to get worn out with her wanting to get up and down all the time. So I wanted to find a product that...

Expensive, looks like a bum bag

We had a huge dilemma when looking at the Hippychick hip seat. Onthe one hand our son was just beginning to exert his independence and wanted to walk everywhere but couldn't as he didn't have the stamina! The seat looked great but i didn't know anyone who had one and there were only a couple of...

Fear that baby may fall off.

I first became aware of this wonderful item when I was taking my daughter around a National Trust property and wasn't allowed to take my buggy in the house. Being anxious about lugging a wriggling 7 month old around I accepted the guides offer of a Hippy Chick hip seat and was immediately...

ideal for holidays!

not sure how much use it would get.

I had to make a rush decision about the hippy chick hip seat just before I went on Holiday.......shall I, shan't I?! It's a lot of money, will I use it?? In the end I did buy it and it came in very handy! We visited some places which stated not suitable for pushchairs, and I had to carry my 1...

Needs a little more padding for longer walks!

My 11 month old daughter had an operation on her hips and needed to be in plaster for 6 months. She was very heavy and awkward to carry as her legs were bent in the plaster. Even just to walk from the carpark to the supermarket was uncomfortable on our backs. You just can't take a buggy...

Not fashionable... but who cares?!

My only regret about this seat is that I did not buy one earlier! This is going to be a long, detailed review because I am in love with this product and I KNOW it looks kind of weird so I'm going to convince you how good it is! My son is a very heavy baby and my back and arms were suffering...

easy to use, invaluable for a toddler.

no straps for security minded parents

I bought this carrier when my daughter was about six months old, having tried and hated every other carrier I came across.why did I hate them?? well every one is designed with a harness that goes over shoulders and around your body to secure it. now at 5 foot 2 inches and being a size 8-10 i...

Easy to use

Child kept slipping off

This is my first review so please forgive me if it's not very good.... The Hippy Chick Seat looks like a bum bag. It's basically a belt with a "seat" built into it. I think it's available in red, blue and green but I've only ever been able to find it in black. I bought mine from Boots but I've...

“Hippy Chick Hip Seat”

published 25/04/2004

easy to use, convenient

must be done up tight enough, or it slips

I loved the idea of the Hip Seat and couldn't wait until my daughter was old enough to use it. I keep it in the car, and we use it for short journeys on foot which is much more convenient than using a buggy. I enjoy being able to hold my daughter and still have an arm free to do other things. I...

Expensive, Remember to hold onto child !

The Hippy Chick Hip Seat is an innovative product. It puts minimal strain on your back, feels very secure when put on (does a good job of keeping your tummy flat !) and it is very easy to swing junior onto it in a hurry. It is basically a 'Bum Bag' with a sturdy styrene inner. The inner is...

Light weight, easy to use

doesn't hold child, straps aren't long enough

I bought a Hippy Chick Hip Seat because I suffer from mild radial sciatica and my husband has back problems. I also bought it because having 2 children within 12 months of each other I was always carrying one or the other and I thought I ought to be carrying them with my back straight, and it...
