LittleLife Butterfly Toddler Backpack - Review



We were sent a LittleLife toddler backpack to feature on my annual gift guides a few months ago, it feels like such a long time ago now. We've used it so much over the past few weeks now that Ava is walking, so much so that it's only fair to give it a full review.

We are no stranger when it comes to LittleLife Toddler Backpacks as Noah had one when he was a toddler too. He has a very cute Mickey Mouse design and loved wearing it out and about. It was a godsend for when he was finding his feet and we used it for quite some time after that too. It's great for nipping out to the shops with or for days out when they want to get out of the pram for a little while.


When it came to choosing a backpack for Ava I was impressed with the amount of designs to choose from. From famous characters such as, Minnie Mouse, Buzz Lightyear and The Gruffalo. Then there's the non character styles such as a fish, seahorse, turtle, unicorn and many more. Although there was so many to choose from I knew right away which one I wanted for Ava. It had to be the butterfly! Bright pink, with wings! How could I resist?


LittleLife Backpacks have so many wonderful features, they are so much more than just a bag. They feature a zip closed main compartment which provides easy access and can also be opened even while Ava is wearing it. Inside the backpack is a 2 litre compartment which provides plenty of space for us to store a couple of toys or a food pouch and some baby wipes. Inside the backpack is an internal name and address label in case the backpack was to get lost or if they were to use it for nursery.

The adjustable shoulder straps and chest strap make the backpack supportive and comfortable, the best of both worlds. I found I had to alter them for Ava so it's great that there's the option to do that. I'll also be able to change it as she gets bigger too.


Last but certainly not least we have the parent safety reign which attaches to the top of the backpack. This feature is what elevates the product to a toddler essential for me. Although Ava is a confident walker she can get over excited when outside and will try to run or dash off. Having access to the safety reign can stop her from falling and keeps her at arms length too. I like to put the handle of the reign around my wrist like a bracelet, then hold her hand so if she was to let go and rush off then I've still got a hold of the safety reign. Once she's outgrown the reign stage I can simply remove it and she can use it just as backpack.

LittleLife Toddler Backpacks are suitable from 1-3 years and prices start at just £19.99. I cannot recommend them enough, they are a toddler essential for us.


- We were sent this product for the purpose of this review however all opinions are my own.

  1. I can see why you choose the butterfly, they are a God send, Megan had a ladybird one, I gave it away when she no longer needed it, so need to get Mollie one, she loved walking places too and it's easier than pulling her stroller out of the boot for the school runs weather permitting xxx

  6. Parent Safety Rein, I like the way you make use of it. As it seems sensible, kind and compassionate to hold Ava's hand whilst she is walking outdoors. As little ones have no awareness of risks and dangers. They are curious and adventurous. We like to keep the children safe, and provide security and a sense of security. Certainly like the element of the Parent Safety Rein being included as part of the Little Life Toddler Backpack.

  9. Ava may well have fun with the product, once outdoors. As she "flutters" by the flowers in the park, etc.
