Is it too early to be talking backpacks? The stores would tell us otherwise, and I know last year (my first school supply shopping year as a parent), I was surprised by how many backpacks were sold out by the time I started shopping—and I’m a planner! When we heard the news that Skip Hop was expanding their backpack selection into the big kid (but not too big kid) realm, we knew we had to share the news, early or not.
This is a size that can be tricky to find—not a tiny toddler backpack but not a huge bag either. We love the fun patterns that have an innovative secret perfect for the forgetful child. The big symbol on the bag is clear so that you can quickly double check that the coordinating lunch bag is tucked inside. No more running a forgotten lunch to school (we hope)! There’s a reason Skip Hop named them their Forget Me Not Backpacks.
And if you still have a toddler at home, please tell me you are buying the new Unicorn Zoo Pack! I would buy it in a heartbeat if I had someone who would use it.
