So usually I start a review by saying that we were recently sent something. This time around, we were sent a beautiful rucksack absolutely ages ago! The delay in writing the review was that I wanted to keep the bag for a special purpose, and that was my son starting school. When the bag arrived, it came in a pink lining box and was all wrapped up in pink wrapping paper. It looked amazing and represented fantastic attention to detail. It made it very exciting for the boy to open his new bag.
The boy started school last week and proudly took his new bag with him on his first day. He is one of the only children not to have an official school book bag, which makes his really easy to spot.
The satchel really is fabulous, the material wipes clean and it seems to be at least water resistant, meaning I know that everything inside will stay dry. The boy has had a lot of compliments about his bag and he wears it with pride. In fact, he hasn't objected at all to carrying his bag on his back, which he always did with his nursery bag. He has yet to create his own masterpiece to go inside the picture window, but I am sure it won't be long before he does.
What they say
The ‘Picture Satchel’ is perfect for carrying around your child’s first school or nursery books and A4 paper for colouring on. Once they have perfected their masterpiece, they can then slot in into the see-through window on the front of the rucksack so they can proudly walk around displaying their artwork. Inside the bag you will find BLUE nylon lining and a mesh pouch. The bag has adjustable shoulder straps.
31(L) x 27(H) x 8(W) cm
Main fabric – 100% cotton canvas laminated with EVA coating (excluding trims). Lining – 100% nylon
Fabulous design which is really eye catching.
Great wipe-clean fabric.
Perfect book bag size.
Adjustable shoulder straps mean that they fit even the smallest back.
The inside is slightly more difficult to clean than the outside.
Would I buy it?
Absolutely. This is a beautiful bag and is so well made. I will be buying one for when my daughter starts school. The RRP is £20.00 which I think is a great price. For more information, and to look at some seriously fabulous bags, have a look at Pink Lining's website.
Disclosure: We received a Pink Lining Picture Satchel for the purpose of this review and we were allowed to keep it. This had no impact on my review, which is honest and fair.
