It's fine, and better than most alternatives.

I've seen a lot of toddler backpacks at preschool. I think this is one of the better bags, but there are issues. First, it does not contain the similarly-styled lunchbox at all, and latching them together via the top loop is awkward. Second, the side pouches are basically useless for any normal-size water bottle, or really anything since kids tend to toss around their bags. The outer zip compartment is too big to hold little things, and too small to hold a change of clothes or anything useful. The straps are not super comfortable for a kid, and I think a sternum strap would be both fun for a kid, and more comfortable, and likely for them to keep it on for more than a few minutes. The large leaf zipper pull is a nice touch. Having two zippers, so the top can be opened, would have been nice.
I think they just didn't really design or test this much or enough on 2-3 year olds.
The insulated pouch for snacks -- is NOT insulated.
So I think this is better than a lot of alternatives, and it's cute. And you could do well to buy it, but I do NOT love it.
