Kidorable Backpack Review and Giveaway!



Backpacks aren't just great for school they can be used for a variety of different uses!  Sleepovers, long car rides, walks, pretty much any time your child would like to bring something with him/her a little backpack is a really handy thing to have.  I know if I'm going on a walk I don't want to end up carrying snacks and drinks the entire time!  Purses and diaper bags are great but what about when your child wants to be a big boy or girl and carry their stuff for themselves?  Well at 6 years old, that's exactly where Ashton is.  He refuses to let anyone do anything for him, he's a big boy now after all. So after carrying toys, snacks and drinks one too many times I learned my lesson pretty quickly.  Luckily my good friends at Kidorable came to the rescue once again and sent Ashton over an adorable Pirate backpack.


What is Kidorable?
According to their website, "In 1997, Kidorable sprung from the minds, hearts and efficency apartment of Liping and Jonathan Domsky.  They proclaimed 'The world needs someone to create children's apparel that's both funtional and fun.  We can do that!'  And so Kidorable was conceived.  Starting with lions and cats and bears, oh my, manifested with umbrellas and hangers, Kidorable generated enough sales in it's first year to break even and plant fruitful Kidorable seeds through the land.  The following years sales grew tenfold.  Every year since, give or take, a new style and/or product line has debuted.  Children, it turns out, unconditionally love Kidorable (almost as much as their parents and children loving grown-ups do.)  
Kidorable is a popular line of children's outdoor apparel and other accessories including adorable rain jackets, umbrellas, gloves, hats, bookends and much more.  They have styles to fit any child's imagination and their apparel is so realistic looking your child will go nuts for it!  Here are just a few of their cute products, pictured below.
Dancer's Bookends - $30
Fireman Rain Boots - $29
Fairy Umbrella - $13.50
My Review
As I mentioned earlier, my very generous friends over at Kidorable let Ashton choose a backpack to try out and review.  Ashton chose the Pirate backpack, pictured below.  I have reviewed for Kidorable before and was extremely impressed with their products.  They're very well made, absolutely precious and Ashton loves them.  Everytime it rains he takes out his Fireman rain jacket and shows it off to everyone!  So I wasn't surprised when Ashton's backpack came in the mail and we opened the package to find the Pirate Backpack to be "totally awesome", as Ashton exclaimed when the box was finally opened.  He insisted we test it out right away so we packed it up.  We were able to fit a couple toys, snacks and one drink into the small backpack and we were off!  We took a short walk up and down the street and Ashton kept talking about how much easier it is to walk now that we have this backpack.  As we were walking home, a young mother stopped us and asked us where he got the adorable backpack and, of course, I told her Kidorable!  Now Ashton brings his Pirate backpack with him whenever we leave the house, which is fine by me!  Before, my car was a disaster with all of his toys and stuff sprawled everywhere.  Now he only takes what fits in his backpack and he puts everything back in it when he's done!  The Kidorable backpacks retail for $23 each.
Pros: Adorable design, sturdy backpack, perfect size, Ashton loves it!  
Cons: A little pricey for some.
