Summer; the time for lots of family trips with the kids, and making sure your bag is well stocked to keep everyone going throughout the day. Of course, the boys always want to take their own bags for their drinks and any toys that may just fancy a trip too…
Also, the time for getting ready to go back to school. Uniforms, shoes, and of course a backpack for their bits & bobs. Come September, Noah will be going to preschool for fifteen hours; including a full day on a Friday so he’ll need to be well stocked then with a change of clothes or two (got to love toilet training!), and a packed lunch.
Fortunately we are already sorted for both of the above with Noah, as the lovely people at Trunki sent him one of their brand new Toddlepak Backpacks to try out!
Brand new from the creators of Trunki, this super cute ToddlePak backpack range is designed for making trips to pre-school or nursery, safe and fun for little tots! … With a spacious 4 litre capacity and easy to reach front face pouch, each ToddlePak backpack comes with, an easy to grab handle, padded adjustable shoulder straps and chest strap, smiley hi-visibility nose, reflective piping around the paws, wrap around arms, so that their favourite teddy can hitch a ride, little ears, and a little tail.
There are five super cute designs of the Toddlepak; Betsy (pink), Bert (blue), Dudley the dinosaur (green), Leeroy the lion (yellow), or Tipu the tiger (orange).
I let Noah choose his own design for this review; immediately he went for Dudley the dinosaur (that would have been my choice too!). Safety is the main aspect of the Toddlepak, with each design featuring a hi-visibility reflective nose and piping. We haven’t actually tried this out in the dark yet but it is very shiny in the light, so it certainly looks like it will be super safe for autumn and winter. One of my favourite features is the hugging arms; very useful for baby Bruno to hitch a ride at Truckfest!
The Toddlepak is also great for trips to the beach…
…and stroking iguanas!
The chest strap of the Toddlepak ensures that the backpack stays safely on Noah’s shoulders; he finds it easy to fasten and unfasten himself too. The Trunki grip™ also enables him to hang his sunglasses so he doesn’t lose them.
Other features of the Toddlepak include a face pouch on the front, to store those essentials like baby wipes or snacks; a large carry handle for when N decides he wants an adult to carry it (though, not very often!); a side mesh pocket for a drinks bottle; and a very spacious main pocket. We can easily fit 3 or 4 nappies, a pack of baby wipes, a change of clothes, and a couple of snacks or toys. Also, how can I forget the ears and tail?! Trunki have really gone to town on the design, which I think is brilliant. I’d certainly be happy to purchase another one of these for Jacob, I think it’s really great value for money.
