Gearing up for Back to School with Skip Hop

A couple years ago, I went to buy a lunch box for one of my kids and came across the most adorable owl backpack & lunch bag I had ever seen. I looked at the company and then came home to find their website because I wanted to see everything else they had to offer. What I found was a great company called Skip Hop that not only makes great looking lunch bags & backpacks but a wide variety of baby gear, toys, bath helpers and much more! Ever since that day, I have been a big fan of Skip Hop!


Featuring fun animal characters, Skip Hop’s backpacks (called Zoo Packs) and lunch boxes (called Zoo Lunchies) are sure to be a hit with any kid! There are 18 different animal characters to choose from…everything from an owl or a penguin to a shark or a zebra. You can find a matching Zoo Pack and Zoo Lunchie or find two of your favorite animals for even more fun.


The Zoo Pack is a preschool sized bag that is perfect for your child heading off to preschool or daycare. My son is 6 and while his Dog Zoo Pack is too small for him to use every day at school, he loves taking it with us in the van, filled with his favorite toys and books. The Zoo Packs are very durable and have an easy to clean lining for those little spills that always seem to happen with kids. The main part is roomy enough to carry toys, a change of clothes, diapers, whatever is needed for your child’s day. The pack features an insulated pouch that is perfect for snacks & a side pocket easily lets you send a water bottle or juice box off with your child. Each of the Zoo Packs feature fun little things that are unique to that animal, for instance the bone zipper-pull on the dog Zoo Pack we received. All these little touches make this a very fun bag to carry around.


Zoo Lunchies  are just as fun as their fellow Zoo Packs. The main part of the Lunchie has plenty of room to place a sandwich, snacks, drinks & more. Since it’s insulated, you know your child’s food will stay nice and cold. The wipe-clean interior lets you keep the Lunchie looking like new. There’s even a mesh pocket inside the Lunchie where you can put a napkin, ice pack, lunch money or utensils. Just like with the Zoo Packs, the Zoo Lunchies feature zipper pulls that go along with what type of animal they are. Inside, there is a nametag that you can write your child’s name on so their Zoo Lunchie doesn’t get lost!

We loved both the Zoo Pack & Zoo Lunchie and look forward to buying more Skip Hop items for our family. I think it’s only fitting that I buy an Owl Zoo Lunchie, right?
