Wallypop Onbuhimo


additional pictures


The Wallypop Onbuhimo Carrier is a great carrier for older babies and toddlers. It is a simple carrier that allows a baby to be worn front or back.

An onbuhimo is a post-war Japanese carrier. It is very similar to a Mai Tai but instead of both shoulder and waist straps, it has shoulder straps and a pair of rings at the waist. The straps go over the wearer's shoulders, then through the rings, as you can see in the photos.

Our straps are long enough to accommodate most body types and sizes. Women over size 18, men over size XL, and anyone who is concerned about fit should please email us. Chances are, the carrier will fit, but we'd rather be safe than sorry! We're happy to work with you to create a carrier that will fit, and there's never an extra charge for making longer straps.

Keep a hand on your baby when bending, stooping, walking through a crowded area, etc. You can expect years of service from your Wallypop products, but take care to look over your slings and carriers before each use. Do not use your sling or carrier if the stitching has ripped or the straps are getting worn out. Limited wearing instructions are available here.
