Thank you Trunki for creating the PaddlePak. The PaddlePak is a great little backpack, perfect for toddlers on the run or older kids that only need to take a few items for their daily trips. They come in a variety of sea animals and each has a name. My kids decided they wanted Pinch, the lobster, and Inky, the octopus.
After picking out their animals the wait for the PaddlePaks began. Every day my little ones asked when they would be coming in. They couldn’t wait for them to arrive. Once they did, the kids ripped open the packaging and put them right on their backs running through the house acting like sea creatures.
Once they stopped running with the animals on their back I was actually able to take a look at the Paks. First, I was very impressed with the material used to create the Pak. It is obviously durable and will survive even the most active of children. It has all the fins and tentacles you would see on the sea animal but not expect to actually see incorporated into a backpack. It also has small zipper pockets for things like money or gum, anything you don’t want to get wet inside or outside the bag. It even has a holder for sunglasses. The water resistant material is great for trips to the pool, which my kids do often at our camper in Maine. They can’t wait to use them up there so they can carry their own stuff to the pool (I think I appreciate that more than they do!)
My 8 year old twins spent their vacation day from school going to a YMCA program and a field trip to the bowling alley. They loved taking the PaddlePaks with them. They were the perfect size for a lunch and a sweatshirt and not bulky like the backpacks they have to take to school. Besides, they were a hit with all the other kids too! I have a feeling they will be using, and enjoying their PaddlePaks, Pinch and Inky for a long time to come.
