They say parents will do anything for their kids, but surely there has to be a line that gets drawn somewhere after dressing up like Santa, but before having to wear this Piggyback Driver helmet. It lets kids steer where they want mum or dad to go while getting a piggyback ride, but shouldn't kids just be happy that they don't have to walk?
