Ladder Pants

Great for parties, or for babysitters who have lost their bargaining power to a sour economy.
  [vote for,

This is an idea for a pair of pants that enables young children to climb up an adult into the piggy-back position without a need for the adult to crouch down. Made from sturdy denim, the back of each pant leg is stepped with a series of cloth rungs. The pants are in fact overalls, thus providing space for the rungs to continue in a single flight upward past the stern and to shoulders. The shoulder area may be equipped with optional accessories, including a bell for signaling each successful ascent, a rope for rappelling back down, and a hammock for napping at 1.5 meters.

       Should also come with a fun mini garrote for aspiring assassins.

       Perhaps a well-placed pole would be of assistance... sorry, that's an in-joke that is a bit before your time here...

       I forgot about p-pants, hahahaha. Putting on serious face now, I think the idea is cute. And very well intended. + Not enough piggy back riding is done, from what I see.

       Wouldn't each rung of a ladder be prone to catch on various things as you as walk past them? [+]

       Correct [Aristotle], ladder pants should not be worn in brier patches or in coat hanger factories.

       The pants should be loose fit so that squirrels and weasels can climb up inside.

       [ld], just for you, R&D has produced a pair of loose fit Ladder Pants, with draw-strings at the bottoms so that you can make sure the rodents and weasels stay where you put them.

       Notice on the back of baseball cap.   

       "This is NOT a step"   

       Unfortunately, 8 of 10 climbers have not yet learned to read.

       A winner with such marketing slogans as... "Mothers! Sick of your weak-limbed children?" and "Ever wished you still had an Australopithecine parent's body hair?" &c.
