A couple of weeks ago, I shared my Spotlight on Mom interview with Kerrie Barton of Posy Lane, Inc. with you. If you missed my post, click here to read it now -- http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2013/02/spotlight-on-mom-kerrie-barton-of-posy.html. Like I shared in the Spotlight Mom post, this fall Savannah will be starting pre-school, and one of the items I was excited to get for her was her own personalized backpack. And, thanks to Kerrie and her wonderful selection of boy and girl backpacks, I was able to find just the right one for her. I ended up choosing this Stephen Joseph toddler backpack, which retails for only $21.99 online, for her:
"Made from 100% quilted cotton, simply unhook the kid and toss the backpack in the washing machine. The backpack front flaps have a double drawstring with magnetic snap closures. It has a carry strap handle on top as well shoulder straps. The shoulder straps are adjustable using buttons and button holes. Each bag also has a zipper pocket. The quilted kids backpacks are ideal for sending your toddler to day care, kindergarten, preschool, dance class, or pre-school, or for use as small diaper bags. Approximately 11" tall x 13" wide by 4" deep."
And, once Savannah saw it, she fell in love with it like I knew she would, as she is a fan of monkeys and flowers. Here are a few photos I took of Savannah trying out her new personalized Stephen Joseph quilted toddler backpack:
Even though she is filling it now with her favorite toys, I can see her getting much use out of it come the fall, when she begins to take show and tell items to school and bring home her drawings and craft products for us to display and cherish. And, Savannah is loving how easy it is to put on and take off herself, and closing the bag is a cinch with the double drawstring with magnetic snap closure. With this easy closure, I don't have to hear her say, "It's stuck," as she tries to unzip the bag, which I am loving, and know she likes, too. :-) Overall, the quality and personalization added to this cute toddler backpack really make this a backpack worth checking out and buying for your child. I can even see these coming in handy come the summer when they kids are packing an overnight bag for Nana and Papa's, heading to the beach for the day with their favorite beach toys, or even attending a day camp. Here are some of the other styles available from Posy Lane Inc, that you can purchase and have personalized with your little one's name:
In addition to selling boy and girl backpacks, Posy Lane, Inc. offers personalized gifts for women, kids and men including, nap mats, day planners, bath towel wraps, laundry bags, children plates and more...
So, with Easter and Spring/Summer birthday and special occasions right around the corner, why not pick up a personalized backpack, nap mat or bath towel wrap for that special someone? Each and every product that Kerri offers through her online store, Posy Lane, Inc. would make for a great gift idea. And, I know that when it comes time to drop Savannah off for her first day of pre-school in the fall, she will be ready to start school in style with her new quilted backpack. And, she will not have to worry about grabbing another child's backpack, as it will have her name on it. :-)
