Cute & Sturdy Item for any Preschooler!
September 4, 2014
I purchased the Skip Hop Zoo bundle in the adorable Panda pattern. The bundle consists of the matching backpack, lunch bag, and water bottle together for a discounted price. At first glance this price may seem quite steep for pretty basic items; however, I can assure you that all of these items are well-made and of high quality--not to mention absolutely cute! Upon seeing the Skip Hop backpacks in a local store, I knew immediately that my preschooler had to have one of them for the upcoming preschool year. Choosing the pattern was difficult; however, we selected the irresistible panda design as there are not many other panda products, and the smiling face just seems so happy/cheerful. The extra little touches like the leather-ette material 3D ears and matching nose on the panda are too precious! It's just the right amount of whimsy and sweet without being overbearing.
The size of the backpack is perfect for my 2-year-old preschool daughter. In fact, she is proud to wear it and show it off to others--sometimes she gets upset to take it off! The straps on the backpack are adjustable so they can be fitted to your child's exact build/body type. My daughter is small/thin for her age, and this backpack can adjust to fit her nice and snug. Overall, this adorable panda backpack seems comfortable for my preschooler to wear on a consistent basis. It has a stretchy side pocket that fits the matching Skip Hop water bottle perfectly. The water bottle fits perfectly into my small daughter's hands and the fact that the straw slides shut is a bonus as it will stay clean when out on the playground. I (as a mommy) especially like that it has a velcro strap to keep attached to my playful toddler.
The backpack is roomy enough for all of a preschoolers needs (i.e. papers, notes, drawings, etc). Additionally, it could be used for basic day trips to include essentials like a change of clothes, a few diapers, wipes, book, etc. The coordinating lunch bag has a handle/clip to hook onto the shoulder straps of the backpack and is roomy for a well-stocked lunch. I look forward to my daughter being able to use all of these items in the years to come as they seem to be of great quality and adorable.
