My daughter has been in need of some luggage for a while now so I decided to upgrade after seeing this cutie! For the first few years of her life we just stuffed her things in with ours our carried a duffle bag since we had all those diapers and I didn't like to stop and repurchase all her essentials. Now that she's into her preschool years we had been using a small suite case I acquired after my uncle passed and I couldn't bear to part with it but its not really that cute and especially not for a little girl so this was the perfect transition. Also keep in mind the colors on this are blue and red. My lighting was little off.
First its part of Skip Hop's Zoo line of products which are so cute and I was first introduced to by the Citrus Lane subscription box when I received their canvas bin in the same design and just loved how big and sturdy it was. I also went on to buy one of their flip top straw bottles and have found their products to be well made. So if you haven't subscribed to Citrus Lane i'll have a coupon code below as well as a link to my review of their box.
Ok so now for the little details. In their photo it appears the leaves are black but the have a nice polished brass sheen to them which I really like. The poly-canvas is nice and sturdy but this luggage is not suited for putting under the plane. Although its sturdier than a backpack I think it was mainly designed to be a carry-on and with 16 x 12 x 5.5 dimensions it should be allowed as a carry-on on most airlines.
The back has a place for your child's name, although I typically do not do this so I can resell items down the line, and a strap so the parents can carry it if need be.
The side pocket is great for an easy access drink which we always bring on a plane trip.
Although it may look like a backpack it completely unzips like any other luggage to allow you ample room to pack.
The front contains a pocket for extra packing room or things you want quick and easy access to.
On Citrus Lane's shop this goes for $30 but they sent me a $10 promo code. I can't remember if I signed up for e-mails or if it was because I signed up for their box but I get promo codes quite often.
