It’s almost officially summer in NYC, which means we spend our days trying to keep cool. While school’s still in session, we take to the parks on the weekends, to frolic in the sprinklers.
That means wet clothes, stuffed in a plastic bag, under my stroller (icky, right?). But we can make it better with PaddlePak by Trunki. This kid-sized, water resistant backpack is perfect for kids to carry themselves and will keep wet swimsuits and sandals from leaking in your beachbag (or your precious stroller).
My 8 1/2 year old loved putting on his whale PaddlePak (he had the large size) and taking off for the park. My daughter used the purple octopus, my toddler son used the yellow fish. And of course I had to hang theirs off the stroller, along with our tote bag.
When we got to the park, my daughter changed into her purple rashguard tee and shorts and jumped right into the sprinklers, with her little brother.
PaddlePak is a water resistant backpack. It prevents wet swimming gear leaking after trips to the pool or beach or sprinkler/water parks and will also keep the contents dry. It’s made from lightweight and durable material. PaddlePak has a roll top seal, with a break-away safety buckle, reflective trim, the Trunki grip™ to keep sunglasses or goggles close to hand, and a tail fin that doubles as a functional pocket for small valuables.
