Ahh, the small-yet-mighty Hop Tye. Super-brief details:
Made from cotton.
Cinches down at the seat using a toggley-type thingy-ma-bob.
Has wrap-strap style shoulder straps (so they're wide).
Available in lots of different colours & designs.
So here is Hop Tye Agadir being used to carry a big boy of 3 years & 5 months. Here's what's important:
• As we've spread the shoulder passes over the bottom and underneath each leg, his seat reaches from knee to knee. Although knee-to-knee isn't essential at this age, it may well be vastly more comfortable for many toddlers and children. This can be particularly important if your child only wants carried when they have reached ultimate tiredness - their legs will feel heavy already.
• The carrier stretches a good way up his back, not quite to the top, but certainly far enough up.
The Hop Tye is one of the most budget priced wrap strap mei tai. It's not going to have the longevity of a Didytai or Flytai; but perhaps you don't need it to. So if you don't, it's a fabulous, lightweight little carrier. As the fabric is more lightweight and the over all size slightly smaller than some, you'll need to be a little more precise when wrapping a bigger baby in it. Make sure their bottom is right in the very middle of the carrier, and really spread those wrap-straps under baby's legs and over their bottom.
Much love and happy baby carrying!
