I remember as a child, my grandparents would cycle everywhere – often with their groceries or whatever else they needed in a basket on the front of their bikes. London design brand, Goodordering provide a range of stylish, practical solutions to that old fashioned basket – meaning you can basically strap your bag onto your bike and off you go. I love that the range is brightly coloured, featuring Goodordering’s signature white binding and wouldn’t look out of place on your daily commute, in the office or out for the day with the kids.
The bag is designed for children between the ages of 2 and 4 but at very nearly 5 and tall for her age, it’s still a perfect fit on Amy. Often children’s backpacks are bulky and awkwardly shaped or too small and completely pointless. The Goodordering Mini Backpack is neither. It sits comfortably on Amy’s back and the addition of a chest strap means that it doesn’t slip off her shoulders while she’s running or scooting.
The bag features reflective strips for extra safety on all 3 panels (front and both sides). The special straps allow for the Mini Backpack to be fastened to the handle bars of your child’s scooter or bicycle – I must admit it wasn’t immediately obvious how this worked and we couldn’t actually do it until we watched the “how to” video over on the Goodordering website – turns out it’s really simple once you know how!
Amy hasn’t put her bag down since it arrived, carrying her drink and coat happily on her scooter in the park or filling it full of toys and pottering around the house. She was keen to use it for school but it’s not quite big enough for A4 which means her homework book won’t fit in it properly. (And if it was big enough to fit A4, it would be too big to fit comfortably on little shoulders!)
*Amy received her backpack free of charge for the purposes of review however all thoughts and opinions remain our own*
