I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old son. It fits him well, it's just the right size. It's also super cute!!! Though I agree with other reviewers that the straps are sewn on too far apart from each other at the top. This makes it easy to slip off. Right now he walks with his shoulders pulled forward, but I'm sure he'll adjust to it with use. If the straps were closer together at the top of the bag allowing for a more comfortable fit I'd rate it 5 stars. I may have to get a mitten clip like one person said they did.

The large velco flap is easy for him to open and close. It's lightly padded all around, which I'm sure allows for more comfort, so he's not feeling every toy or book poking through. The carry handle on top is helpful when he's carrying it from here to there to stuff things inside. He immediately filled the bag with Wheat Thins, which I immediately dumped out and had to clean the bag. He then filled it with a random assortment of toys. He just wants to fill it up and wear it!

I got it as a toy more than anything, and for him to take a few things with him and spare pants/undies when we go out, so I don't have to carry his stuff. It's not a school bag, however, so don't be bummed if you can't fit a folder and books in it.

UPDATE: My son loves his backpack so much he often sleeps with it. One night he wet the bed and got a LOT on the back pack. I ran it through the washer on cold in the "hand wash" setting and hung it up to dry. It came out in very good shape, though looking a little worn. The edges of the flap crunched up a tiny bit. I think it looks great considering it went through the wash, and is actually a bit softer now. I'm happy to know I can wash it and it's ok!

UPDATE 12/28/11 - Just bought another one for my second son. The robot style, since he loves "bo-bots." Can't wait to give it to him for his second birthday! I will be back for a third when my daughter turns two in 16 months. They better still be available!

UPDATE 4/17/13: - Just bought a third for my daughter! I love these, and the kids do too! The original, now 2 1/2 years old, is doing very well. And the only thing that really pooped it out was a couple of runs in the washing machine. I have been able to avoid having to wash the robot one and it's still nearly like new! We will be giving our daughter her's on her 2nd birthday in two days and she's going to be so excited to be just like her brothers!

My only complaint would be the limited girl styles. I mean, there are a lot, but they are all just so...well, girly!! I really wanted the Dia de los Muertos backpack, but my husband said that was me trying too hard (still, I like it!) We settled for one with owls and hearts and not too much pink. Still cute, but they need tomboy options. :)

I bought this for my 2 1/2 year old daughter, despite an earlier review about the straps being too wide. This is true, the straps are too wide and fall off my daughter's shoulders if it is not positioned exactly right. But I have rectified the issue by using a mitten clip (it's a mini suspender) to pull the straps together across her front. The sizing is wonderful, the pattern is cute, and it's not advertising for anyone (Disney etc.). I am very pleased with it, and would give it a 5 star if the straps were a little closer together, or if it came with a clip that you could just put across their chest to fix it. Mitten clips are easy to find and very inexpensive (a couple of $$). If you're thinking about buying it, I'd go for it. It's well worth it.

UPDATE (July 2011): My daughter is now 3yr3mo and the straps fit fine. They are too big on my 2 yr old so will use the mitten clips until the straps don't fall off her shoulders.

I purchased this a year ago for my 2.5 year old daughter, and we all love it. It's easy for her to open/close and just the right size to hold her coloring books/toys. We use this primarily as a "busy bag" when we go to restaurants, church, etc., but I plan to use it for preschool as well; it's big enough to hold what she needs, but not too big for her to carry -- just right for little bodies! It's held up perfectly for over a year of weekly use. I'd definitely recommend it; it's wonderful quality for the price!

I waffled a bit over buying this backpack, having read about the issue of size from other reviewers, and having measured it out on paper beforehand and realizing that it is, in fact, exactly the size of a piece of notebook paper and thus, would likely not be able to hold an actual notebook-sized object.

The deciding factor was the pattern. Skip Hop's Owl Pack is adorable -- and a little larger -- but my little girl only likes owls, while she LOVES monsters. And no doubt, this monster pattern is absolutely adorable. My daughter lit up when the package arrived today, and promptly put her backpack on. She is three and the pack looks so sweet and perfect on her. Even sweeter was the fact that she wore the pack ALL DAY long, while playing in the sandbox, filled with her Playmobil dinos for a trip to the grocery store where she insisted on walking and showing off the whole time (which ellicited many an admiring stare from onlookers, much to her pleasure). So, all in all, I've no doubt this will be a well-loved, well-used little item.

But we had another motive. We were hoping this would be a pack that she could wear to 3K next year, in spite of the size. And I'm not sure it's ideal for that. It *will* actually hold a notebook of standard size or a full-size coloring book, a few of them actually, but they don't go in easily enough for my daughter to pack them up herself I don't believe, and the flap is somewhat resistant to velcroing closed when this sort of large object is placed inside. I can't help but wonder why the dimensions couldn't have been ever-so-slightly larger, or even if this pack were offered in a closer-to-standard backpack size for older kids? It's darn-near impossible to find a backpack that doesn't have PVC or some other nasty material, and that has kid-appeal too. I love the thick, cotton canvas of this. It's absolutely ideal -- and I think it'll survive washing too, though I may do it on delicate out of an abundance of caution. We'll soon find out as it does have a slightly chemical odor inside, perhaps from the finishing process, and I will probably wash it in the next few days.

Overall, I'm pretty pleased with this little pack, and even if it doesn't pan out as a 3K backpack, I think it will see plenty of use as a convenient tote for toys, small books, and art supplies for outings. Or just, apparently, as a fun accessory to wear around everywhere.

I purchased this one for my daughter and the robot one for my son as preschool bags. They are the perfect size for what they need. A little larger than a lunchbox. They are a canvas material and the colors are very vibrant. The perfect size for a lunch, a small security blanket and one change of clothes.

This backpack looks like it is constructed well and is cute...but I am really worried that it is going to be too small for my 4 year old to use at school. Not only do I have to put an extra set of clothes in there, but sometimes they put a folder or other paperwork in there, and a folder definitely will not fit. Debating about purchasing a different larger backpack to use. Bummer!

I bought this backpack for my neice shes about to turn one and it works great for her! its a bit small but it works great for just packing little stuff. If your looking for a backpack to hold alot of things then maybe try a bigger backpack this one is more of a simple stuff backpack that holds about 10 things but little items not big. It works great for a child who doesnt carry around alot.

I bought two of these recently for my twin preschoolers, because they told me they wanted, "backpack lunch boxes." While these were not specifically intended as lunch bags, they are a perfect size for that (and would, honestly, be too small for much else!). They are also super cute, well made, and the twins love them. They get compliments all the time as they walk into preschool wearing them! My one complaint is that the inside is not waterproof, which would be really helpful since I'm using them as lunch bags, but since they weren't intended for that purpose, it's hard to fault the manufacturer. To keep the interior from getting sticky or wet, I just put the boys' lunches into plastic bread bags, and then put the bread bags inside the backpack.

The fabric on this backpack is completely adorable and also interest-catching for my daughter. (dolls!) However, I am disappointed to say that this just didn't work for us. Let me start by saying that my daughter (16 mos. old) LOVES backpacks, says "ba pa" all the time, and is interested in our hiking back packs, her backpack carrier, etc. That being said, she refuses to wear this backpack and, when we do manage to get it on her, it slips off. She is average size for her age. It may just be that she is too young OR it may be that, while the rest of the backpack is nice quality, the shoulder straps are not padded and are that slick, nylon strap material. Overall, love the styling but it just isn't practical for a toddler her age.
