Skip Hop: Fun bags for little backs! (Review & Giveaway)

Wednesday, 7 November 2012

I have been thinking of getting a little bag for BabyMoo to carry his essentials on his daily commute to and fro my in-laws'. Since we stay on opposite ends of the island, travel time is usually about half an hour each way, and can take much longer in the mornings, depending on traffic conditions.

When I saw this Skip Hop back pack at JED packs, I felt that it was just perfect. Compact enough for BabyMoo to carry on his own, yet roomy enough for all his necessities. On top of that, it's in the boy's favourite colour!

Skip Hop Zoo packs are BPA-Free and Phthalate-free, and I like that the lining is easy to clean. It comes with padded, adjustable straps and measures (inches) 10.5 wide x 12 (high) x 5 (deep).
Travelling with a kid means that we have to always be prepared for emergencies, and there are also days when we decide to run errands in the evenings prior to going home.

Morning milk, plastic straws (I always have a few of these handy), wet wipes, a spare diaper and his cars. BabyMoo has been nursing a slight cough this past week, and needs to carry his cough medicine along.
Everything fits nicely in the bag!
I was initially prepared for BabyMoo to be disturbed by the extra weight on his shoulders and not want to carry the bag, given previous experiences when we tried on several other bags in stores for size.

However, to my surprise, he really took a liking to this particular one. He jumped about excitedly, and turned around without any prompting so that I can slip his arms in the shoulder straps.


He had a certain spring in his footsteps while he had the bag strapped on. It must have made him feel rather important!
He didn't want to take it off when we got to the car, and had to sit on his car seat with the bag still on his back, before deciding that it was a tad uncomfortable that way, and allowed me to remove it. He wasn't too happy about it, but settled on having the bag be placed next to his seat.

Going by his reaction, when the Skip Hop people touted that the Zoo Pack is where 'Fun meets Function' - they sure know what they are talking about!


Skip Hop Zoo packs can be purchased at JED Packs!, an online store run by a Mumpreuneur who has 3 lovely children of her own, and therefore understands first hand what works best for both parents and their kids.

I absolutely love the products at JED Packs, and I had to stop myself from purchasing items which BabyMoo doesn't really need as yet. These are just some of the products in-store. Do check their page out for more fun items!

I wouldn't mind carrying these! Full listing of products here.



DISCLAIMER: BabyMoo received a Skip*Hop Zoo Pack (Dragon) for review purposes, and is thoroughly pleased with it. All opinions will come from the boy himself, if only he is able to talk. For now, Mummy is his spokesperson!

  8. My 4-boys essentials - although with each baby, the essentials list gets shorter, maybe because I have more experience? ;)

  13. I will never leave home without the wet wipes,extra clothing,snacks and water bottle.All these things are essential for my 4 year old kid whom likes to play and eat a lot.Often get sweaty easily and mess up her own clothing after eating.Most important is that she will only carry her own bag if the bag has cute pictures on it just like the Jed Pack Bag.
