|First look at the YUUbag MUUV - great colours and you can see the reflector strips and circles|
They have been designed and created by two mums who knew what they (and their kids) wanted from a bag. It needed to be lightweight and healthy for kids backs, with reflective bits for those dark winter days and yet fun, brightly coloured with loads of pockets for stashing all those secret bits and pieces. I would say they have been pretty successful in their aims.
|the YUUbag has been designed in line with Backcare reccomendations. You can also see the side pockets here - one for a water bottle - another for a snack maybe!|

Mummy - I think it is a great bag for weekends away, holidays or sleepovers as they can fit in some books, colouring, paper, electronic tablets and stuff as well as a couple of items of clothing, a teddy, snack etc. We have tested it in the car and with the chest strap it can be strapped around the front seat to be used as a desk which is great. I would say that although it is billed as a school bag it would be a bit big to use as a school bag, though the ergonomic back would be great for carrying it to and from school. I think I have seen somewhere that they are looking into designing a specific school bag which would be great as it is excellent quality. There has obviously been a lot of thought put into the design and they have got the comfy back thing just right. I like the material - much better than all those Disney, Hello Kitty, 1D things whilst still being funky. Overall a fab kids bag, a little pricey (rrp is £43)but you do get what you pay for and I am looking forward to seeing the school bag design. The main thing is the kids love it!
The girls - We love our YUUbag, it is in our favourite colours and there are so many exciting pockets. There is even a secret pocket! We found it - can you? (It took Mummy ages!!) We love that we can put loads of stuff to do in it when we go away and it also fits in a couple of teddies and a snack. The desk bit is really useful as it gives us something to lean on to write or do drawing and we love the matching detachable pencil case inside. The basket bit is really useful too as it stops our bits and pieces falling out when we are using it as a desk. It looks heavy but it isn't and it is really comfy to carry and we like blowing the whistle. We think it is the best bag ever!
The scary thing is they will have to share it - eeek!
