Babymel Zip and Zoe Backpacks and Accessories for Kids Review and A Back to School Giveaway

If you go down to the woods today...
Make sure you take-along your Babymel Zip and Zoe backpacks!

Lovely stuff for kids is infinite these days. We therefore consider ourselves to be lucky to be given the opportunity to experience the fun colourful designs and expert functionality, inherent within the very latest range of backpacks and accessories for kids, from the qualified team at Babymel.

Babymel have already carved a name for themselves via their established range of trendy baby bags, designed specifically for selective mamas. (We've even featured some of their stylish designs on the blog previously. See our review of the Grace bag here and the Cara baby bag here.)

Now youngsters can join in the carrying fun too, with a super-stylish, fun array of travel and everyday luggage designed especially with their needs in mind.

The new Babymel Zip and Zoe range offers fashion-forward kids a chance to step out with loads of unique style.

This stunning lineup of backpacks and kids' accessories feature the amazing design talents of New York artist Matthew Langille. Zip and Zoe are the signature monikers given to his two original characters, whose playful style and vibrant adventures grace this entire Babymel range for children.

From backpacks of all sizes, to extras such as lunch bags, there's something intrinsically joyful about this gear, to capture the adoring attention of every kid (and grownup!).

Babymel Zip and Zoe kid's backpack in Rainbow Multi.
Each backpack comes with a coordinating Zip and Zoe key ring.

Our two youngest kids have been happily tootling-about with their Babymel Zip and Zoe backpacks for much of their summer break. These gorgeous bags have been safely carting their essentials on our various outings and adventures. (A bonus perk which has been well-received by us parents, given there's been less to carry all-round!)

These backpacks must be comfortable, for our kids have never tried to off-load them onto us, even once, whenever we've been out!

From a grown-up's point of view, the Zip and Zoe range offers exceptional quality.

The Zip and Zoe Rainbow Multi backpack featured, is a bag designed for kids aged from three plus. This backpack is constructed from a durable, tightly-woven fabric, and is designed to withstand the everyday actions of carefree kids. There's lightweight padding built into each bag's construction to keep kids comfortable. Likewise, the finish and detailing is impeccable and stylish.

Within these bags is one main compartment that will comfortably accommodate books and school or kinder necessities. There is also one large Velcro pocket on the back wall for storing important items such as school notices. Even a tablet PC fits into this space! The linings inside Zip and Zoe backpacks are bright and cheerful and there is a place to record your child's details in case their bag gets lost. On the exterior of the bags in this range, you'll find one silver-lined, small zippered pocket which is perfect for bus passes and the like.

Quality webbing protects all the strain points, as well as adjustable padded shoulder straps.
Kids are happy and comfortable wearing Zip and Zoe backpacks. (Trust me on this!)

The range of Zip and Zoe backpacks available is quite extensive, with a variety of themes on offer to please all tastes and interests.

Our son opted for this Spaceman backpack. (This is the same size as the Rainbow Multi backpack pictured earlier, as shown on an eight year old.) This is an ideal day pack with plenty of room for an upright drink bottle, snacks, books and whatever it is that your child likes to tote about.
Our son loves his bag!

All backpacks feature chest straps for stability and security.

Babymel's Zip and Zoe collection has kids covered for snack time too, with an array of matching lunch bags and even drink bottles. 

These fun lunch bags are crafted from the same high quality materials that feature in their backpacks. They have a padded and lined interior, and each lunch bag comes with its own matching ice pack. The lunch bags even have a handy snap-on clip for attaching to its co-ordinating backpack (or a stroller) for quick and easy portability.

For even younger kids, (or those seeking a smaller backpack for their child), the Zip and Zoe collection even has a range of Mini Backpacks designed specifically with the 1-4 year age bracket in mind. The beauty of these; they come with detachable reins / safety harness, for those times when your little one wants to explore on their own.

Babymel's Zip and Zoe, 9 litre backpacks are priced at RRP $34.99 each and are well-sized to fit most standard school books for primary aged children. Mini backpacks are $29.99 each and the matching lunch bags are priced at $19.99 a piece. Importantly, everything within the range is machine washable in cold water, offering peace of mind too.

Linking up for IBOT


  1. Love the bright colours!! There would be no mistaking these backpacks out of the huge pile lined up outside the classroom. Matching ice packs too.....I'm impressed :)

  2. Lightweight & padded are great design qualities and the prints are glorious. Also I see matching lunch bags and mini backpacks too which is wonderful for people like me who love everything uniform. Perfection for all future adventures. (Boy backpack please) Adele Smith.

  3. Great article, love your sharing so much, thank you!


  4. I love the bright, colourful designs, and the fact that they're not overly gendered products.

  5. Oh man, these are so cool! I love how colourful the designs are, and they look like they would hold heaps of stuff without actually being too big for small people! I really wish I had heard about these bags before we went shopping for Punky's new school bag, I definitely would have gotten one of these. Oh well, hopefully I can win one and then Zee can have the other one we bought, lol!

  6. What gorgeous photos!!! I love the bright colours of these backpacks and they look like a great size too!

  7. These look brilliant, my son would love a spaceman one!

    Kelly-Marie Venamore

  8. I keep forgetting that backpacks are such an ingenious way of getting kids to (willingly) carry their own things around, haha; it will definitely lighten the load on this mumma's back! These Babymel backpacks look so adorable, and the design is incredibly well thought out too. Would absolutely love a Navy Colour Block for my little one :)

    Charissa Naran

  9. I love these backpacks - especially the rainbow one but even more, I really like the lunch bags that match. Lovely. Thanks for joining the #weekendblogshare

  10. The Matching ice packs and lunch bags are great. such colourful designs and I like the elastic internal loop for drink bottles - great idea

  11. The feature I LOVE most is the easy wipe interior. With the rocks and stick collections combined with lunch scraps.....this interior will make cleaning up a breeze.

  12. The designs are adorable but I love the practicality of these lunchboxes and bags too. It helps teach responsibility to look after our items, and too make sure we're organised.
    I would love the girls please!

  14. I love everything about these, I love the detachable lunch bags, I love the colours, I love the quality but most of all I love that they are all washable in cold water. My kids get grubby so being able to washing things is essential - Belinda Moxey

  15. A place specifically to record contact details.......although its quite a minor feature but to me it makes a HUGE difference to me

  16. Babymel Zip & Zoe backpacks are the cutest darn things I have ever seen. A boy's prize would make us all smile. Sharon Markwell

    She would love a rainbow one,
    As they look like alot of fun!
    Aleisha Sullivan

  22. Oh wow these are just awesome! My daughter has just started Kinder and I would LOVE to be able to give her one of these, she would just love it! These are so different to what everyone else has and I would love for her to have something a little bit different instead of all the girls having the same Frozen bag!

    Kylie Bowers

  23. I haven't seen these before but I love the mixture of colours and how bright they look. Your child would really stand out in one of these

    1. Oh no! I accidently entered and didn't put my details in properly the (very important) section :(

  26. The snap on clip! Means the lunchbox stays with the backpack and no more sending them with a plastic woolies bag the next day and instructions to bring it back from school! (which you know will take 3 days to sink in).

  27. Name - sapna sharma

    I would love to win it for my son who has just started grade 4. With a bag that is machine washable,i will have one thing less to wash with hands & it will definitely make my life easy :)

  28. My daughter would be using her all over australia when we head off for our big lap. So convenient to pack her own little bag with her lunch.. especially because she's miss independent now and loves everything in a bag she can carry. Tiffany Hogan

  29. Two words - "Machine Washable". This is brilliant! I am so slack when it comes to hand washing and backpacks get dirty and whiffy quite quickly at school! Love the fact that I can throw these in the washing machine at the end of each term for a freshen up!

  30. I adore the size. Its so hard to find backpacks for smaller children starting primary school. I swear I have a picture of my daughter starting school years ago and all you can see is this head and legs from the mid thigh down....it was hysterical, but also bad for their little backs. Tess Howard

  31. They look great quality and I love the bright colours that won't fade and wear like their school shoes.

  32. The designs are bright and bubbly, just like our children :D

  33. Love this durable, comfortable backpack
    with handy compartments galore,
    Stylish, bright coloured with gorgeous designs
    plus machine washable? Need I say more???

  34. The kids looked like they had so much fun showing all the features of the Zip & Zoe bags. If it was my two, they would have each other in a head lock!
    Thanks for demonstrating the inside of the lunch snack bag too. I love that they clip onto the bag to avoid loosing another lunchbox.

  35. Julia Mason. I love the layout and colourful designs!

  36. I love the bright colours especially the rainbow ones.

  37. They are great for my kids as we love to explore nature. They are very vibrant, cheerful colors with matching accessories. :)

  38. i love that they are funky and gorgeous and bright
    i love that they are the right size to feel so comfy and right
    i love that they can be machine washed as my kids attract dirt
    i love that they can fit their lunches and spare shirt
    (sharyn williams)

    1. forgot to add either boy or girl is fine :)

  39. It's got to be the BAGS of style! So pretty, my little girl would get CARRIED away if she saw the design!
