Jack was keen to start using this backpack and has used it for his swimming lessons every week since having it. This bag is a lot larger than his usual one and we can easily fit all his things in with room to spare meaning I can pop my things in too. The bag is completely waterproof both internally and on the top outer. The only part which isn't waterproof is the mesh back (underbelly of Nemo) which is designed to be comfortable for your child to wear, the straps of the bag are made of the same material, again for comfort when carrying it. There is also an additional peg loop to easily hang it up for both storage and to dry out.
The main section of the bag doesn't have a zip to fasten which makes it easier for children to open and close. Instead it has a small piece of velcro and then you roll it over on itself and fasten with two easy to open clips. Inside is a small section which has been designed for you to write your child's name on perfect for school use. In the back panel there is a small zipped pocket which remains dry even with wet clothing inside so perfect for storing important things or anything you want safe and dry.
The design of the bag is really cute, sometimes Disney things aren't done right, but this certainly is. No small detail has been missed as Nemo even has his lucky fin on one side. As the bag is quite a decent size, when empty is can look a little strange on the head part however when filled its easy to see who it is. Although this is sold as a swimming bag it could certainly be used for days out or even hand luggage if going on holiday too.
There is also a Dory version of the bag available and both retail at £24.99 with free delivery, and although this may seem a little steep I would definitely say it is worth it for the size and features in which you get.
