Kids BackpackYesterday after a day trip to Cologne (in the northeast part of Germany), I realized that I have been leaving out a huge part of our population: the kids! Shame on me. This was never intentional, trust me! I saw so many little munchkins running around yesterday and I decided they needed to have their own handbag category! I know many of you remember or have children now that make you remember that little kids love to have bags. I always needed to have some sort of little compartment to hold all of my ‘things’. I have told you all once before that I am an avid collector of ‘things’, but that did not come with age. That started wayyy back when. I had little purses, pouches, backpacks, Barbie travel cases, wallets, etc. You name it, I had it. I carried the dumbest things around. If I could have had it my way all the time, I would have left the house carrying My Buddy in one arm, Kid Sister in the other, and playing Skip-It while I walked. Let’s all do a way back when recall: Silly Putty (in the egg shell), Polly Pocket, sticky-hands from the 25 cent machine, California Raisins, travel size Etch-A-Sketch, Barbie dolls, Gak, miniature Pound-Puppies, My Little Pony, My Littlest Pet Shop, Gumby, Linkin Logs, Snap Bracelets, fuzzy stickers, and much more (not to mention my Easy Bake Oven at home! Oh yea, I was a chef in the making). But a kid has to have somewhere to carry all of this stuff right? I traveled with all of my goods just like my mommy carried her purse with her goods. Just as important as it is for all of us grown-up fashionistas to carry a purse, it is just as important for kids to feel like they can relate and carry their special things around too.

This is why I am in love with this Children’s Animal Backpacks & Pouches. The adorable matching set choices are cat, monkey, butterfly, or frog. Knowing how I was, I would have picked the money for sure. The backpacks measure 8 1/2-12 1/2″H x 10 1/2″-12″W while the matching pouches that coordinate with the backpacks are 4 1/4″-5 1/2″H x 4 1/2″-5″W. The set is made of cotton and polyester which makes the bags easy for washing. This is a major perk for anyone caring for a kid! Kids are messy! With the assortment of animals kids have a choice to be individual and pick the animal that they relate with/like the most. The adorable backpack is $48 and the matching pouch is only $18 through Neiman Marcus.

*The way I see it, buying any kid a bag like this would be a hit! You’d be the best grown-up on the block ;-) *

    They have always had these. I remember the ones that were dogs and cows and were backpacks. In fact, I still have mine that was a frog. There also used to be a popular one that was shaped like a bus. Everyone had one of those! I do have to say that these are cuter though.

    These bags are made by a company called BlaBlakids and are hand-made in South America. They also make other knitted toys and clothing for children. If you go to their website, you can get these items a lot cheaper….

    With the number of extracurricular activities and classes today, backpacks can become extremely heavy and cause children discomfort and pain. However, with some research and education, parents can find a suitable solution to ensure their children remain comfortable, healthy and happy each school day.
