|Hot Pink Gingham Mint Medium Backpack|
I requested for the Hot Pink Gingham Mint Medium Backpack embroidered with Curlz font and Raspberry thread color. By the way, aside from personalized children's backpacks that I'm reviewing, you can select from Posy Lane's wide selection of products like towels, personalized lunch totes, iPhone cases, bath towel wraps (which would look awesome on me), tote bags, duffle bags, hats, place mats and more. And of course, their products can be personalized!
So what do I think of the Hot Pink Gingham Mint Medium Backpack? Here are some of the good and a few of the bad points.
LOOK AND DESIGN - Rating: 4 out of 5
The first time I opened the package, I was pleasantly surprised that it actually looked better than the image from the website. It is well-made and the personalized embroidery done perfectly!

When I requested for a backpack, my initial thought was my niece will use it as a school bag. But I'm not sure if this bag can withstand heavy books and school supplies. I also noticed that it lacks extra pockets inside, which will be useful for some extra storage. This may not be ideal as a school bag but it can fit well to bring during my niece's swimming class or as a going out bag.

The price for the medium backpack is actually $23.25. It's just right for the size and the quality of the bag. The embroidered name actually costs a fixed price of $6. I find this quite expensive since it's already done by the machine. Maybe they could price it per letter for a reduced price?
VARIETY - Rating: 5 out of 5
As mentioned above, Posy Lane offers a lot of products. What I like about Posy Lane is that they offer products of the same theme. So if you already have a Hot Pink Gingham Mint Medium Backpack, you can match it with a Hot Pink Gingham Mint Snack Square, Hot Pink Gingham Mint Nap Mats or Hot Pink Gingham Mint Lunch Box/Tote. Kids would love their matchy things!

Posy Lane is based in Texas, USA. For Domestic shipping, a fixed rate of $6.75 will be charged. For International shipping, orders will be weighed and the exact postage will be calculated by the US Postal Service. Domestic turn-around time usually takes 1-2 business days for non-personalized items and 3-4 business days for personalized items. For my case, which is international shipping, it took 9 days including weekends.
So what's my verdict? The Hot Pink Gingham Mint Medium Backpack that I got for my niece is actually a good buy. I can't wait for my niece to get to try it. When she learned about this bag, she can't wait for me to come home. Watch out for the photos of Samantha with her new bag.
Posy Lane was founded in 2007 by Kerrie Barton and her husband Nathen. They had a store in downtown McKinney, Texas where they supply unique gift items, invitations and provide printing and embroidery services. Nearly two years in business, the couple prepared the birth of their first child thus decided to close down their store and focus primarily on online business. The couple is now working at home and has their own North Dallas warehouse and work space with two full time and three part time employees.
