The best part of this Skip Hop collection is the huge selection of the different animals. There are also a full set of matching accessories such as lunch bag, plates, umbrellas, roller bags, sippy cups, etc. to complete the look.

The backpack can hold a few small books and has a side pocket to hold a sippy cup. The backpack is durable, I had 2 of these bags for the last 4 years. They have been used regularly and are still in good shape. They are not much more money than the Walmart brands but it is a much better quality and is well worth the extra few dollars. The kids love them since they can pick the entire collection to be their favorite animal. There are literally almost every animal that is found in the zoo, could be bought as a collection. It really promotes individuality and imagination of a child.

Necessity Scale-5

Once the diaper bag is out of the picture, you will need a bag to carry items for your toddler. The backpack is a great way to carry what you need when you are out or send it with your child to day care.


Medium-$23-$30 depending on design

Siblings Friendly-Can engage together

Backpacks are not really a toy or an item that can be used between siblings.

Durability/Multi Kid Survivor/Longevity Scale 4

The backpack is pretty durable and could definitely last 2 kids. Depending on how often you will use it and how rough is your second child, the 3rd kid might need a new backpack. The conflict might also come if they like different animals.

Development Friendly-Helps with specific skills

Backpack is stepping stone in to preschool world. A child learns to pack and be responsible for the items in the back pack as he/she would when they are older. It also helps toddlers develop their own style and identity by being able to select their own backpack design.

Girl Friendly

This product can be used for any gender. It is not girl specific. There are many animal designs to appeal to any gender and preference.
