Bob the Builder Backpack
My nephew absolutely adores Bob the Builder and so was excited to see the new bag that Santa had got him for Christmas, ready for his new term at preschool to carry his lunch bag, spare clothing and juice in.
The backpack is a good size for a young child - big enough to carry quite a bit inside though small enough so that the youngster can carry it on their back without a problem.
The bag is in a blue and orange colour with a large Bob the Builder image on the front pocket with the bright logo above. There are two compartments in the backpack, one main one which holds quite a bit and a small front pocket which holds the smaller items. The straps are adjustable to suit a growing child and are also quite wide for a comfort fit.
It has been a month since Christmas and the bag looks nearly as good as new. It is easy to clean with a wet cloth, though the straps do get a little frayed after a while, especially if your youngster likes to drag their bag rather than carry it! This is a normal thing with backpacks verses young children, though, and certainly not a negative point on this bag alone.
All in all, this back is not only practical for youngster, but also a very fetching design. This can be found for just over £8.00 on Amazon which is a little steep though can possibly be found cheaper elsewhere.
I bought this bag for my son who has recently started nursery. I just wanted a bag that I could pop a light jacket into and a drink.
When I came across this fab little Bob the Builder backpack I just had to get it.
My son loves Bob and also loves to carry around his own bag, even going as far as not wanting to remove it to sit in his seat in the car or to go to bed!
This backpack is a nice size for littleys and if you just wanted it to sling on the back of the pram with nappies and the such in it, it would be fine.
It comfortably holds sandwiches, a carton, biscuits, fruit and a yoghurt without everything being squished together and the little front pocket on the front will easily allow for a little pack away rain coat.
It has great padded adjustable straps that stop the bag digging into my sons shoulders and it's a nice brightly coloured bag in blue and orange, on the front you will be greeted with the sight of Bob and Wendy and the catchphrase 'come on, we've got a job to finish'.
I bought it off a market stall in my local town centre and it cost me £4.99 (I let him keep the penny change though, so really a fiver lol), but it is available online at amazon for £6.83.
My son really loves this bag and I dread the day it breaks! It does seem sturdy enough but kids will be kids! Even his teacher has trouble getting him to hang it on his hook!!
My sister goes to playgroup twice a week so we've brought her a few different bags to carry her nappies and drinks in, she loves being able to carry her own stuff so we tend to buy her backpack type bags so she can have it on her shoulders.
Our cousin got her this Bob The Builder one for Xmas, when we opened it I thought it looked like a bit of a boys bag but that's mainly because I usually buy pink things for my sister. It doesn't matter because my sister loves Bob anyway but I do think this bag is probably more suitable for a boy, especially when they go to school and want to fit in with their little friends.
It looks wicked. The bag zips open at the top and then there is a big pocket on the front for anything else that needs to be carried, on the pocket is a cool picture of Bob and Wendy looking happy and cheerful. The bag is mainly blue but it's got orange detail on it as well as the yellow Bob The Builder logo.
The straps are wide and adjustable so my sister can easily carry it about. She doesn't put that much in there so it doesn't get that heavy that it's going to dig into her shoulders but if you're buying it as a school bag the straps are deffo wide enough to distribute the weight comfortably.
There is a hanging loop on the top of the bag so that my sister can hang it up on her peg at playgroup. She sometimes tries to carry the bag using the hanging loop but that doesn't work that well because she's only small so the bag drags on the floor when she does that.
I think it's a wicked bag, it looks great and is just the right size for her stuff. The zips open and close smooth because they're quite chunky and that means she can easily open and close the bag herself.... that's not always a good thing though because before now she's took everything out of the bag at playgroup when I haven't noticed and lost stuff! lol
