Amelia is pretty much my double looks and personality wise and I quite often refer to her as my Mini Me so when we had the chance to have matching rucksacks, you can imagine how much I LOVED the idea.
Pink Lining have lots of matching products but these rucksacks are exactly the same just one is for Adult and one is for baby.You can buy both of these bags separately or get them both and have matching. I’ve been finding a rucksack really handy for when were on days out as it still means I’ve got my hands free and this one from Pink Lining is super comfortable and just the right size. Amelia has also really enjoyed wearing hers. It’s great for just putting a couple of her own bits in and nice for her to choose a toy to bring with her.
These rucksacks are done in the Cream Bows on Navy like you can see in all of these photo’s or in the reverse with Navy Bows on Cream. The Adult Rucksack has a padded laptop/ipad pocket inside and a front zip pocket all of which are great extra’s. This rucksack doesn’t come with all your different compartments for bottles and things so I think this would be one to go for when your not taking to many separate small things but I’ve had no problem putting in nappies, wipes, change of clothes, camera, my essentials and sometimes Amelia’s lunch box in on top as it is super spacious.
The Cream Bows Mini Rucksack not only co-ordinates with the adult Pink Lining bag but is perfect for Amelia being the little adventurer that she is. It has adjustable shoulder straps and an external front zip pocket and is just the right size. Not to big that it weighs Amelia down but still holds plenty of things. It also means that Amelia is able to carry on with everything the same and not need to take it on and off as the size doesn’t prevent her from doing anything and the bag doesn’t get in the way- even when going down a slide!
I love the design and think the colours are perfect. Being the darker version I’m not worried about it getting dirty which I might be had a had it in the reverse colours. However it is wipe clean so and all marks I’ve had on mine have come off with ease so far. The quality of these bags is also brilliant. Having a toddler zipping and unzipping the bag like a loon could sometimes lead to problems but both our bags are still in the same condition we got them in and we’ve really put them through our paces with lots of days out!
I’ve loved using these bags and taken every opportunity for myself and Amelia to trot around with our matching bags as I just think it is such a cute idea. But I’ve also found Amelia’s bag perfect to use if were just popping out for a walk as I can take a small pack of wipes, nappy, water bottle and pop my car keys into Amelia’s bag. If she doesn’t want to carry it you can loosen the straps and pop it over your shoulder yourself.
These Pink Lining bags will last us such a long time and will be perfect for all our summer adventures I have planned for me and my #MiniMe.
