AffenZahn animal-shaped backpacks, too cute to resist!

A few weeks ago, we took a beautiful trip to Berlin and of course I came home with lots of ideas and inspiration for the blog, products, places, activities… Today I’d like to show you a cute little product we found in one of the shops in Prenzlauerberg: the AffenZahn backpacks.

Affenzahn is a brand by Fond of Bags and its products are gorgeous, animal-shaped backpacks for kids and toddlers: lions, tigers, dolphins, sheep, pandas, elephants… you name it! And they all have names! For Oliver we picked Alexander, a cute dog from the Small Friends collection.

Oh right, did I mention that the backpacks come into two different sizes? There are the Small Friends, suitable for kids 1-3 years old, very light and big enough to carry a couple nappy changes, a water bottle and a snack; and there are the Large Friends, suitable for kids 3-5 years old, about double the size.

We loooove the details that make Alexander special: you can pull out the tongue to reveal a label with the name of the owner; you can adjust the height of the chest-strap which makes the carrying very comfortable; the inside is waterproof and has a practical pocket; it has two small outside pockets on the front and a practical handle for parents to carry it when the little ones are tired. I won’t say more, you’ll have to find all the other little details yourself!

PS. This is not a sponsored post, the backpack was a gift to Oliver from nonno Geppi e nonna Maria and I simply fell in love with it. I think you will, too!

  1. Veramente belli e originali! Bravi questi nonni😉.
    Invece parlando di abbigliamento bimbi dove ti rifornisci?

    • Ciao Chiara, grazie per il tuo commento! Guarda, io ho provato tanti negozietti di abbigliamento qui, ma li ho trovati tutti un po’ cari (se non nelle offerte) e onestamente Oliver cresce talmente in fretta che non vale la pena. Quindi alla fine compro quasi sempre da Benetton i capi per tutti i giorni un po’ più carini, e quelli “usa e getta” per l’asilo da H&M o C&A (e dico “usa e getta” solo perché sfortunatamente la qualità non è il massimo e dopo un paio di lavaggi perdono colore o si deformano). Tu, invece?

      • Confermo h&m e anche next. Hanno cose carine e se cerchi bene con pochi euro ti porti a casa un tris di magliette o pantaloni. 😉

  2. Gracias Carlotta!! Te sigo, te leo y aplico muchos de tus experiencias, la cama Ikea Montessori, y ahora esta mochilita.
    Muchas gracias,.
    Saludos de una marbellí que anda por tierras suizas!
