You could have come across the Slovakian brand Rischino at this website several times already – although it is mainly a carrier manufacturer, we have tested only their wraps so far – Mint Diamond, Blue Starlight, and Rainbow Paisley Folk.
I was very excited about the first two, about the third one not that much, but I thought it would make a great material for a wrap conversion carrier (well, why not, considering its manufacturer is primarily a carrier manufacturer). Finally, we had the opportunity to test one of the Rischino carriers, too.
According to the manufactur and also the legends we have heard about Flexible, this should have been a really ˈgrowingˈ adjustable carrier – the one and only carrier that grows with your baby from his/her birth up to the preschooler age, i.e. from the size 50/56 to exorbitant 92/98 cm. And you may already understand that I will growl about this – maybe a bit surprisingly not about the minimum size; it is possible to adjust Rischino to a very small size and the mini-baby looks quite fine in it in my opinion (not that I have become such a fan of carrying newborns in carriers – newborns are, were and will be supposed to be in a wrap), but about the maximum size. Funfact – if you watch the instructional video, Mrs. Rischino first says that the carrier is adjustable up to the size 92/98 and about 30 seconds later she states that the carrier should be O.K. up to the size 80. Well, now I would agree on that. 😀
Emilka wears size 74 and we did not need to adjust the width of the back panel at all – I suppose it would be fine up to the size of 80, but not up to 98, like – not at all.
