At first it seemed a bit small but this adorable backpack is actually the perfect size. I'm not a big fan of leashed items for children but I've grown to appreciate them especially in crowds or at the store. It allows freedom while keeping them close. I love that it is easily detachable so they can just use the backpack to store their favorite items. The velcro chest strap keeps the pack in place without being too difficult and doubles as a harness when using the leash feature. I am impressed with the quality of the fabric, it feels durable and able to withstand the roughness of a child. My favorite aspect though, are the adorable prints that it is offered in.
