Little Life Ladybird Backpack

Anything that encourages kids to carry their own junk, oops I mean treasures, has to be a good thing in my book, so when the opportunity arose to try out this Little Life backpack, I jumped at the chance. Wherever we go, Juliette always wants to collect feathers, funny-shaped stones, shells, twigs, conkers, pinecones, acorns and goodness knows what else to take back home and I usually end up with them stuffed in my pockets or handbag !

But the brilliant thing about this backpack is that it doubles up as a fancy dress costume ! The bag part is red and spotty like a ladybird's back but it also has a sneaky and ultra-convenient hood in a zip-up pocket that you can pull out if you get caught in a shower. That's already ingenious but they've added eyes on the front ! How cute is that ?!

As you can see, Juliette loves it and can't wait to go out on a nature walk and fill it up with treasures ! It's also big enough to hold a lightweight anorak, drink and snack, as well as a small toy like a little ball or skipping rope, so it's perfect for picnics or trips to the park. Strangely enough, I don't think I'll end up with this particular bag hanging off the back of the pushchair !

There is also a spider version of this backpack available but I'll stick with the ladybird, thanks !

  1. Awwww this backpack looks really cute! Perfect for when the kids want to bring a toy round the shops and you KNOW you will end up carrying it after 5 minutes!

  2. OMG - do you ever wonder how they think of such amazing ideas!? I don't think I'd be quite so keen on the spider back pack mind you - though it would make a great Halloween outfit and your child could carry round his treats on his back!!!

    I showed my 5 and 3 year old girls and they love the ladybird. I think I might treat them this Easter as they would be great to take to Paulton Park - when we go to visit the 'real Peppa Pig'!!! The girls both love carrying their 'things' around in their handbags, but I always seem to end up carrying them - so these back packs would be great for that (and if it rains too!).

  3. This is sooo cute. We call our youngest a lady bug and are always on the look out for ladybird themed things! Gorgeous!
