There isn't much need for back to school backpacks at Olive's first school as they have branded school bookbags, however backpacks are handy for days out, holidays and carrying all your triathlon gear. Sambro sent Olive a Minions backpack filled with stationery and I must admit I *may* have “borrowed” long term a pencil or two.
There are quite a few Minion, Despicable 3 backpacks in the Sambro collection, with the movie being one the biggest hits this summer (and thank goodness with all this rain there is something decent to see at the cinema!) Olive's Minion backpack has one large zip pocket, making it great for storing activities for car journey's as Olive didn't have to hunt around in various pockets.
The backpack features two adjustable shoulder straps for both comfort and support. Olive competed in a mini triathlon making the Minion backpack the perfect companion filled with googles, swimming cap, towel, drink, after tri snack and a jumper just incase.
She had plenty of room and the splashproof coating on the back meant it didn't get soaking wet when Olive arrived at transition a bit soggy to grab her bike. Sambro backpacks not only cover all the major license characters Paw Patrol, Minions and Cars 3 meaning there is something to suit everyone's taste. I did feel that the backpack we received was a little more geared towards boys and less unisex than some of the others I have seen. However Olive being a massive Minions fan didn't care very much. The quality is excellent and it feels like a really durable, long lasting bag.
You can find the full range from Sambro over at Very.
We were sent the backpack in order to review.
