I've got a beautiful 3 1/2 year old boy at home who inherited his dad's bag addiction at a young age.
We got him a kids north face backpack as soon as he could walk... And have had him carry all of his own stuff since (toys, change of clothes, snack, everything)... Not that a toddler in a minimalist family needs much... But he LOVES it!
Every where we go he wants his bag and he puts one toy in it, we get him a change of clothes in case of an accident, and he even has a kids sized platypus style water bottle in there.
We figure it's a good way to teach him about only taking what he needs... Since he carries his stuff. Not mom and dad.
Anyway, the north face backpack is really tiny. It is definitely a great size for a young toddler. But he's only gonna be a small young toddler for another 6 months... Then he'll be 4 and ready for pre school.
I'd like to get him a real backpack. And by real, I mean a Tom Bihn... Cause all other bags pale in comparison. I'd like to get him bag that will last him a lifetime... Or until he has the cash to invest in his own inherited Tom Bihn syndrome.
But it seems that all of the Tom Bihn backpacks are too large for my boy right now.
Just curious if anyone here has gotten a Tom Bihn for their young kids?
