Skip Hop Zoo Packs

We definitely could not do a backpack post without including these adorable Skip Hop Zoo Packs — we love them here at Inhabitots! These backpacks come in 14 different animal designs. Each Zoo Pack is equipped with one roomy compartment big enough for books, an insulated pouch for afternoon snacks and an adjustable mesh pocket for their reusable water bottle. Zoo Packs are also BPA- and phthalate-free and have a write-in name tag inside for keeping track of which bag is whose! We also love Skip Hop’s coordinating Zoo Lunchies reusable lunch packs.
