A few helpful links before we get started:
I have been nagging the internet for useable/understandable feedback on the difference between a small and large size backpack from Pottery Barn Kids (PBK) for a while now. Even the YouTube reviews weren’t helpful. So, if you’re that parent with a 3y/o that needs to carry his PECS book wherever he goes so he can communicate or participates in a PPCD and needs a backpack big enough for a three-ring binder during the school year – read on.
The hunt was on for a durable backpack D could use at school AND extracurricular activities. I had heard good things about the quality of PBK products and felt it was worth the splurge. Here is my honest review.
I should preface this by saying D is 44″ tall and 52 lbs at 3 years old.
On the outside it is well put together and I’m happy with the quality. It’s bigger than the Skip Hop bags that are common these days.
D’s small PECS book fits nicely inside, no issues closing or opening at all still plenty of room for a change of clothes, diapers and wipes.
The red binder is what was issued to D at PPCD for his daily sheets and this is also how his teacher sends flyers home.
This is what that red binder looks like inside.
Needless to say I had to purchase another backpack for PPCD. 😒
