We’ve blogged about US brand Skip Hop before, their changing bag has been a lifesaver with its many pockets and storage solutions. Now we’re moving into potty training we no longer need a huge bag anymore and Joss is becoming independent and wants to carry her own bits and bobs when we’re out and about.
Skip Hop Zoo-Let
The Skip Hop Zoo-Let is a mini backpack suitable for children aged 12 months+ and is the perfect step up from our changing bag now we’re carrying smaller items and no nappies.
Featuring Skip Hop’s usual friendly faces this ladybird design is so cute! The handy name tag inside is great for identifying the bag as hers when she’s away from home, the handle on top is perfect for hanging this on the buggy when she needs a rest and the mesh drinks pocket is just the right size for her water bottle and saves us digging about inside for a drink!
I’m really impressed with the quality of this bag, it’s really robust and sturdy in a thick fabric that’s BPA and phtalate free; at £18.99 rrp it’s about what I’d expect to pay for a backpack with reins and is a really high quality item that will grow with Joss (it’s aged up to 4 years old). I only have a small comment on the sizing, all round it’s a great size for a tot, but when J is wearing her winter coat the straps on the front fastening could be a fraction longer to give her more wear out of it (this is said with a caveat as J’s coat is sooo chunky!)
