Now this may sound a bit boring when faced with a bright and colourful bag but I think the ergonomic aspect of the YUUbag is really important. My husband and I have both suffered with bad backs and necks so we know only too well how important it is to have a bag that is lightweight and and supportive.
Not only is this backpack all of the above, it also sports reflective strips, so it's perfect for darker evenings and trips out at night. It has lots of compartments and holders so you can carry everything you might need.
It also comes with things to do straight out of the bag, with pencils and a note pad so you can get scribbling and a snakes and ladders game which has been a massive hit with both our children.
The bag is really well made and if you do a lot of travelling I think it is the perfect way to keep all of their things to do in one place. The front of the bag, when folded down, can also be used as a makeshift table, with space to write or play games on and a tray to put anything on that could roll away.
There is also lot's of space for bigger objects such as iPads or books, a pencil case to keep your pencils in which is clipped to the top of the bag for easy access and so it is out of the way.
On the outside of the bag you have a bottle holder on one side and a zip pocket on the other, perfect for keeping things you need to be easy accessible, you know, like sweets.
The bag has been a hit with my son, he has been taking it on adventures in the garden, using it to carry his dinosaurs and he also took it with him when he stayed over at his grandparents.
This is the perfect bag to take on holiday and we will be taking it with us on the long journey to France later this year, great for the channel tunnel crossing and for when we get there.
The bag is £38, whilst this is more than I might normally pay for a bag I do think this is a great bag for travel, sleepovers and for days out where my son might need entertaining and although it is for up to 6 years he has plenty of room for it as he is only small so it will last him a while.
YUU currently have an offer on their website, you can buy aYUUBag and YUUlunch bag for £45 with free shipping so if you are looking for something for summer travels and a new lunch bag for starting back to school next term this is a really great deal. This ends on the 15th June so be quick if you like what you see.
NB We were sent the bag for the purpose of this review all, all words and thoughts are my own.
