The twins don't even realize they are on a tether...they think they are carrying their buddy and stuffy...the monkey on their back, but this monkey isn't a troubling pest...he's their buddy and mom, dad and grandma can walk an airport with less stress knowing their precious little ones are enjoying their freedom while still safely within our reach. Great product. We like the chest band that is comfortable but helps to stabilize the pull of the tether and helps to keep the shoulder straps in place. The monkey is well made .....like a soft, cuddly stuffed animal. The wrist band is comfortable for the adult.
