Sure, it is novel, but it is also stupid: you don’t tote a toddler on a top-heavy carry-on bag…these parents or guardians should be ashamed of their recklessness.
Toddler Wheeled Through Airport On Top Of Carry-On Bag
A short video shows a toddler fastened onto the handle of a carry-on (“roll aboard” style) bag as it wheeled though what appears to be an airport or train station.

These days, you always have to wonder what is real and what is fake on social media, but even if this was some sort of gag, it was still a risky one.
If you’re a frequent traveler, you know quite well that these type of carry-on bags tend to be quite top heavy. Now you’re adding a baby on top and if you slip or fall, that child is going to hit the ground face first.
I don’t know about you, but that is not something I want to even risk (especially as my daughter now has a scar on her forehead from her recent fall).
So to the parents, I can only say shame on you. And while I tend to mind my own business in airports or other transport hubs, I would speak up here in case this “ingenious trick” was fueled by ignorance.
Of course it would be great to leave the stroller at home, but it is hardly “helicopter parenting” to recognize that this crosses a line of unacceptability.
A toddler was pictures being wheeled through an airport or train station with his sweatshirt fasted to the handle of a carry-on bag.
If this is real, I do wonder if the parents are fit to be parents. If this is a joke, I am not laughing.
