Exploring the World with the New MINIMEIS G5 Shoulder Carrier

As a mom of four, finding the perfect gear to make our family adventures smoother and more enjoyable is always a priority. Recently, we upgraded to the MINIMEIS G5 Shoulder Carrier, and it has quickly become an essential part of our travel kit. Here’s why we love it and how it’s made our outings with the kids even more fun and convenient.

From the G4 to the G5: A Trusted Upgrade

We first discovered MINIMEIS four years ago when we bought the MINIMEIS G4 Shoulder Carrier to carry our oldest on walks during the COVID-19 pandemic. The G4 has been a trusty companion for moderate walks around our neighborhood, as well as more adventurous hikes in places like Acadia National Park and Shenandoah National Park, where we’ve trekked for 5+ miles. The durability and comfort of the G4 made it indispensable, and we were excited to see what improvements the G5 would bring.

The G4: A Testament to Durability

The MINIMEIS G4 has truly stood the test of time. Over the past four years, it has carried all three of our children and is still in great shape. The high-quality materials and robust design have ensured that it remains reliable and comfortable through countless adventures. The reason behind getting the G5 was to allow both my husband and me to wear one while on the go, providing even more flexibility and convenience during our family outings.

The G4 wasn’t just for hiking; it came in handy for our trips to amusement parks like Hershey Park and Legoland New York. We were often stopped by other park-goers curious about this unique carrier. We’ve even taken it to the beach in Ocean City, New Jersey, where it provided a comfortable and elevated view for our little one. The versatility of the G4 made it an all-around winner for various family outings, and the G5 continues this tradition.

Why We Love the G5

The new G5 model has all the great features of the G4, with some fantastic improvements. Here are some reasons why we’re thrilled with our upgrade:

  • Comfortable and Lightweight: The MINIMEIS G5 is designed with comfort in mind for both the child and the adult. It’s lightweight, making it easy to carry without causing strain. The ergonomic design ensures that both the child and the parent can enjoy the adventure without any discomfort.
  • Compact and Convenient: The G5 folds up quickly and compactly, so it’s easy to store in our car trunk or house closet when not in use. This feature is particularly useful for families with limited storage space, as the G5 doesn’t take up much room.
  • Freeing Hands: Traveling with multiple children can be challenging, but the MINIMEIS G5 comes in handy as it frees our hands to tend to our other kids while one child rides up top. This hands-free convenience allows us to manage our other children’s needs more effectively, making family outings less stressful.
  • Excitement for the Kids: Our children love being lifted on our shoulders with the G5, giving them the best seat in the house. They enjoy viewing the world from a higher perspective, which is a thrilling change from their usual ground-level view. This elevated position allows them to see everything more clearly and feel more involved in the adventure.
