Very Hungry Caterpillar Umbrella and Backpack Review

Holly loves being a Very Hungry Caterpillar ambassador.  We're celebrating the 45th anniversary of Eric Carle's classic picture book by exploring the new range of Very Hungry Caterpillar gifts.

Holly is a MASSIVE fan so she was over the moon when she discovered this little backpack.  With the big red face of the caterpillar on the back and fun purple antennae poking up from the top of the bag, this backpack put a smile on Holly's face from day one.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar backpack is the perfect size for Holly to take with her to nursery or to a friends house to hold a spare outfit and a few basics like a cup, a pack of wipes and a spare nappy.  I love the fact that this backpack is different to most kids character bags - the shape is unique and there are fun little details such as the little caterpillars on the zips to help small hands grab hold. The bag has been well thought out for small people with adjustable straps and wipe clean materials... perfect for toddlers.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar backpack costs around £10 and is available from Mothercare, Amazon and Jojo Maman Bebe.

Holly also looks the part with her Very Hungry Caterpillar dome umbrella which is totally perfect!

Holly really feels very grown up now that she has her own umbrella. It is transparent through every other panel so that she can see where she is going.  The handle seems easy for her to hold.  I have noticed that Holly does lose interest in holding it after a while and starts dragging it along the floor but she'll grow into it...Lara manages a lot better and in fact the two girls argue over the brolly.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Umbrella is finger-friendly in that it doesn't have a catch you have to press to collapse it, you just pull and push the handle and the design is such that it should reduce the chance of sore nipped fingers when you collapse the umbrella.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Dome Umbrella costs around £9 from Mothercare, Amazon and Jojo Maman Bebe.
