LOVE this bag!

love this bag for my 5 year old! he's used it every day for 2 years and it's still going strong. it fits him perfectly, and also fits a standard sized folder that he needs to bring back and forth to kindergarten every day. we also bought some iron-on patches to put on the front for his first day of school, and they look great and add a little extra fun touch. we are even going to now get another one for my 2.5 year old in her favorite color! like another reviewer said, what would make it *perfect* would be an outer pocket for a water bottle... please, terra thread?!

Presley Rasmussen
Forever fan

To put it simply, I LOVE this backpack. I literally caught myself thinking “I hope Terra Thread is around for when my daughter starts school so she can pick out her own someday”. She’s not even 1 yet, so Terra Thread I’m gonna need you around for the long haul!
I use this as my diaper bag and it’s perfect. I bought three of the “makeup” bags to organize different things. One pouch fits a few diapers, her wipes, and the foldable changing pad easily. I use the other one to keep her toys in and one for a fresh change of clothes and an extra burp cloth. When the time comes, I’ll be buying another pouch to store snacks in. This little bag is the perfect size and holds so much. The quality is unmatched. I’ve been using the same “Bagalini” backpack for ~6 years and I know this bag will outlast that one by a long shot.
If you’re eyeballing one of these bags, but it. You won’t regret it. The hardest part is choosing a color. I went with the brown and I LOVE it.

Great bag

Love this bag currently using it as a diaper bag since my baby is almost 1 now I don’t need to carry around a huge diaper bag lol. This bag is the perfect size not to big not to small. The one thing I wish it did have though was a pouch on the side for a water bottle to be held in.

Great bag, great impact!

It’s a perfect basic backpack. It’s not too small or too large. I personally use it as a school bag and purse. Works great! Love the double way zipper


It was a gift for my great grandson, he picked it out. It arrived very quickly after I ordered it. I would buy again!
