“ Brand: Peppa Pig „
The Peppa Pig Flowers Backpack must have been out for a while because I bought this in a sale for about £4 around three years ago, before I had my daughter, who at age two has now adopted this as her own!
The bag is much brighter in 'real life' than the picture on DooYoo suggests, very vibrant pink and red flowers with a red button down press stud pocket on the front with a wipe clean Peppa Pig picture and logo.
It's well proportioned to a toddler with the arm straps being just the right size and it holds just enough, we use it for her nursery bag and it holds a drinking cup, pair of leggings, vest, jumper or long sleeved top and a hat, and it has enough room for a small pad of paper and a pack of baby wipes and a nappy if needs be. So it's great as a nursery or preschool / early years bag.
It's well made and wipe clean, though you can throw it in the washing machine if you need on a cool wash and it comes up lovely and bright. The front pocket isn't used much in our house, apart from spare hair bobbles and clips as there's not much a two year old needs to hold in a little money pocket, but it'd be handy for change for a locker if you were to use this for swimming, or possibly a small book for travelling and so on.
For the money you really can't go wrong - it's lovely and girly without being insanely pink and neon, and of course, little girls tend to love Peppa Pig! If you can find this in a sale (it has a matching clear pink plastic swimming bag, too, with a draw string) then it's well worth buying especially at under a fiver. My girl has been using it for about 18 months and prior to that I used it as a spare changing bag with nappies and wipes and a spare bottle to pop under the pushchair and keep in the car so it has certainly been handy. It just proves you don't need to spend a fortune!
Overally I give this a five out of five, it's a great little bag on a budget that little girls will love :)
My eldest daughter used to be a really big fan of Peppa Pig, one day when we had taken a trip through to the caravan to see her Grandparents we visited a local bootsale and found this bag and the matching swimming bag at £2 each. Sophie straight away started asking for the bags and at £2 each and really great condition I decided she could.
There are two versions of the Cosmic Flowers backpack which I didn't actually realise until I looked the bag up on Amazon to see what it was called to see if I could review, there is the one pictured above and then there is my daughters version which is pretty much opposite than the one above, the bag at full price will cost you £7.99.
The bag is made of really sturdy fabric and has a two layer effect giving it more strength. The front of the bag is white in colour with loads of red and white coloured flowers on it exactly the same as the flowers on the one above. The side panels on this bag are red and then the back of the bag is red too. On the front of the bag about half way down there is a little pocket, the pocket is literally an extra piece of material sewn on the front of the bag so it has no depth to it and doesn't really actually have space to hold anything. The pocket is red and has a picture of Peppa pig on it and then it fastens with a piece of velcro which has a little flower made of felt on it.
The bag has a piece of pink fabric which forms a loop which you can hold the bag with or there are two red and pink straps. The straps are padded so are comfortable and the pink part has a black plastic clip which moves up and down to adjust the length of the straps. This bag fot my daughter when she got it at 3 years old and still fits her now at 5 years old with some space to adjust it further.
My daughter used this bag yesterday for a school trip and to give you an idea of space she took sandwiches, two fruit shoot style bottles, a tub of grapes and a packet of biscuits anjd could still fit her hat and scarf in too so there is plenty of room for a childs bag.
The bag is pretty stain resistant and we have given it a rub with a damp cloth a couple of times and it still looks pretty decent, my daughter struggles getting it on her back herself but once it's on it fits well and doesn't slip off her shoulders. The bag is really good quality and a decent price even when buying it new.
