With back-to-school season so recently behind us (or coming to a close soon), you may be sick and tired of thinking about backpacks and tote bags. But wait…don’t surf away from this page quite yet because the Bring Along Backpacks and Day Totes from Neat-Oh!
blow those utilitarian school packs out of the water. Perfect for long waits or boring trips in the car, each bag unzips to reveal a playmat and/or fanciful facade. In the case of the Basketball backpack, the front panel lowers and a basketball hoop folds down for a real game of mini hoops. When the kids are finished, they simply throw the additional parts back inside and zip the bag up. It’s a great way to keep travel toys organized and at-the-ready for planned and impromptu time away from the playroom.
