Cute backpacks make it fun for toddlers to carry round their own stuff when they’re on the go. They may only be little backpacks, but giving your young one the opportunity to be responsible for their belongings is an opportunity for them to learn valuable lessons in independence and self management.
Anyone who has ever traveled with kids knows that they love having their own special bag for the journey. It’s somewhere for them to put a book, drink or snack, maybe some coloring pencils and a cuddly toy. So when they set off for a visit to friends or relatives, they can keep their belongings with them and have them to hand when needed.
These days, there’s a wide range of cute designs that will appeal to boys and girls as much as to their proud parents! Many of the most popular backpack ranges feature accessories that are themed in the same style as the backpacks – such as lunch bags or boxes. And when Mom or Dad is there with them, they may have diaper bags in the same design as well.
Many toddlers are at an age when they identify with favorite characters from, fairy tales, story books, TV or movies. So it’s no surprise to find backpacks that are designed around perennial favorites such as Dora the Explorer, a Disney Princess or Mickey Mouse, or a character like Shrek. But as well as specific themes like these, there are also lots of cute animals and dress-up themes.
One of the most popular makes of toddler backpack today is the Skip Hop Zoo Pack range, which focuses on animal designs such as a frog, dog, monkey, owl, penguin and zebra — to name but a few! They have useful features such as adjustable straps for comfortable wear, a name tag (because every parent knows how easy it is for kids’ stuff to get mixed up), and insulated pouch and and easy-to-clean lining. And many of these designs will appeal to boys and girls alike.
If you are looking for a boys’ backpack, how about the Kidorable range, which features a Space Hero, a Fire Chief or a Pirate. And girls may like a Mermaid backpack, a Ladybug or a Butterfly. But really there’s no sensible boys / girls distinction at this age other then what individual children like themselves! They’re all cute backpacks, and moms and dads will be proud of their little ones whatever they choose to wear.
