Kids Backpack Review



Finlee and Me review of Kids Backpacks


My son is about to turn four and start Kindy at the end of January. Being my first child I am excited for him and wanted to ensure the transition goes smoothly by having all the right items that he will need for his time at Kindy. The first thing on my list was a kids backpack. I wanted it to be a nice size that wouldn’t hurt his back and I wanted it to be adjustable so that I could make it fit correctly. I know that he will need to store his lunch and drink bottle, a change of clothes and many of the creative things he will make at Kindy so it still had to be a reasonable size to fit that.

He loves cars, planes and anything with wheels or that flies so when I was asked to review a kids backpack from Finlee and Me  I was impressed when we were sent  The Fast Track kids backpack and so was he.

The material is very soft and as a bonus is machine washable. This will come in handy if his lunch gets spilled or when I need to wash the bag after holding all the craft items as I am sure there will be lots of glitter coming home on the creations.

The backpack is made from insulated fabric that is stain resistant and certified free of lead, PVC and phthalates. I was impressed when I read that each backpack is individually made in Taiwan by a woman owned facility that supports fair labour.

The backpack is very light and has a section at the back of the backpack to store notes or readers. Inside there are three compartments that could hold a drink, sunscreen, or a lunchbox. They are made of netted material and have elastic so can stretch to hold the item. There is also enough room to store a lunchbox, clothing or craft items. There is one strap inside the backpack that helps tighten the arm straps so I can make it fit my son correctly. It can also be tighten so that there are no dangling straps. There is a handle at the top that will come in handy when I need to carry it.

The colours are very appealing with majority of it being red and grey and the two racing cars are red and blue and it has a yellow racing track.

Overall I am very happy with this backpack and I am sure my son will love using it for Kindy. There are so many different types of kids backpacks available like the owl and penguin ones.

If you think these backpacks are great then you’ll want to check out other Finlee & Me Products like their educational toys ( and Montessori inspired collection (
