Two-and-a-half days a week my two big kids go to kindy, on their backs a cute Woddlers backpack filled with water bottle, fruit/snack, lunch and a hat. Now that winter has arrived they also need to bring their winter jacket, as they grow their lunches are getting bigger and I haven’t even started about all the art and craft they are bringing home. Soon it won’t all fit in their backpacks anymore but that is not a worry as Woddlers grows with your child. Kids start with the Toddler Backpack and as they grow they can upsize to the Kinder Backpack.

At almost 40cm high this is a great size backpack with three large zip compartments, plenty of room for all those kindy essentials or sleepover must-haves. The handy mesh pocket on the side keeps the drink bottle within reach and away from other things inside so it all stays nice and dry.

Just like its smaller siblings the Woddlers Kinder Backpacks are free from PVC and made with strong durable nylon that can handle a little pulling and throwing (my kids have put it to the test!). Kids should have no trouble recognising their gorgeous backpack in between all the others at kindy or daycare, but to be sure they are designed with a name tag too.

Mary JayneIt is not just the backpack range that is growing, the popular shoe range is growing too. The brand new Woddlers Classics range has only just been released and is already winning hearts all over the country. The timeless Mary Jayne and Boston Boot designs are available in a range of colours and go with any outfit, these gorgeous Purple Mary Jayne Flexi Sole shoes ($49.95) are my favourite for sure.

The new 'Flexi Sole' is truly flexibleFeaturing beautifully soft eco friendly leather, sourced from Australia and New Zealand, and a flexible non-slip sole the Woddlers Classics are perfect for those first wobbly steps. The new flexi sole is a little harder than the original soft sole but still able to bend and twist just like chubby baby feet. The Boston Boot has elasticised sides while the Mary Jayne closes with a buckle and you can rest assured, both Woddlers styles are designed to stay put.
