Works great, especially when you feel like having your 2 year old scream bloody murder for being strapped to you. Also great for racking up dirty looks from non-parents and parents on their pedestals. Not to mention pissy grandparents as well. My personal fav is when I strap it to the grocery cart to keep my toddler from running, and he instead uses it like a horse pulling a carriage, and crashes the cart into everything. In reality though it has been convenient.
