We’ve made a bit of fuss over the start of the new academic year because Talitha has a lot of friends starting school and she’s wondered why she’s being home educated instead. She’s been pretty satisfied with a dedicated time each day to work on things she’s interested in, set activities that we’re going to each week and play dates a’plenty. These bags from Tulipop have been the icing on the cake.
Tulipop is as Icelandic children’s lifestyle brand dedicated to creating products that are bright, quirky and not necessarily gender specific. I chose the Miss Maddy print for Talitha because I knew that she’d love the pink while I appreciate that the illustrations don’t go overboard on the cutesy. We were sent a backpack (£39), pencil case (£8) and sports bag (£15) to review. All three are water resistant and come in two other designs.
I’ve been impressed with the functionality of the designs. The sports bag can clip on to the backpack, which features lots of inner pockets and an insulated, wipeable lunch box compartment. They’ve already had a lot of use in and out of the home and I’m sure they’ll go with us whenever we go away. All three bags seem strong and well-made. Talitha is thrilled to bits with them and has even been willing to relinquish her beloved Peppa Pig toddler backpack so younger sister could have a backpack too! That pretty much says it all.
