׳My 1st Years׳ Mini Backpack - Anyone order one?

Just wondering whether it's worth the £30 (give or take with postage)? Looks cute, but also seems tiny...

Is it worth it can be subjective.
If I had a child they sure as hell wouldn't wear a ghastly, tiny backpack with their name on it.

The size is given - it's the same width but a bit shorter than a piece of A4 paper. so not very large.

As for the name, well I know lots of parents who won't advertise their small child's name in public for safety reasons but I guess that's up to each parent.

I've been contemplating it since I first saw the link (I think through HfP) but have been holding out to try and pick one up at LHR for free

Ordered one for my grandson and received it 4 days later. It arrived in a very nice gift box with tissue wrapping inside. I am happy with it - It is small but it’s meant for small people. The backpack is of good quality but I’m sure that you could buy one for much less elsewhere - it just wouldn’t have BA planes on it. I wouldn’t really worry about the fact it’s personalised - any child of an age to wear it should never be out of arms reach.

I've got one and you can omit the personalisation if that's what bothers you. I've opted for initials which is a good compromise. The ones handed out at T5 say Mini Adventurer, so I'm sure you can come up with other titles (Mr Trouble was another consideration...)

I'm quite happy with the backpack. It's his first, so I can imagine that if there were others in the household, we'd think twice before we bought him a new one...

This is very sweet thank you for posting! I will order some for my little ones with no names.

Found that with my older one it helped slowly helped him get used to carrying something from a young age - now he’s at school he’s not phased with carrying his own books!

Got a free (non-personalised) one when checking in at LHR last week. Personally, wouldn't have paid for one but has come in handy on holiday.

Not being a fan of ‘little people’, I still think it still looks rather cool.

Even better with a BAEC Gold bag-tag attached, of course.

You were one once.

I've had a couple of BA branded cabin bags over the years and found them to be of good quality. Still got them kicking about somewhere 30 years later. Must look them out and use them for the weekly supermarket run. Not for the shopping, to carry the bundle of pesos I'll need to pay for it.

I can't stop myself from looking. They look so sweet and I really want one!!! Just if they were bigger they would make a great gym bag.
