I've been buying stuff from Tinyme ever since my daughter started school back in 2010 - their labels are great - cute designs and long lasting. Now those clever folk at Tinyme have now come up with some new designs and lucky Shannon - got to test out a new combination lunch bag and rucksack.
Their personalised lunch bags have always had hundreds of design and colour options plus they now have a removable silicone lining. The food grade silicone lining is completely seamless, insulated and is super easy to clean (and by easy, we mean easy, you can just throw it in the dishwasher) and then it just clicks back into place! No more disgusting lunch bag liners with food spills festering in the stitched seams.
And now for feature number 2 - The “Piggyback Connector” is hidden away in the back pocket of the lunch bag. Simply slide it out and into the front pocket of our Everyday or Junior backpack to “piggyback” the bags together. Attached and un-attached in seconds, no straps to click and completely hidden!
We went for a red bag with a watermelon design - because well, you know how much we love watermelons. You are totally spoilt for choice when it comes to design options.
Firstly you choose a colour from blue, red or pink, next is the next you choose your theme - there's everything from foxes to floral wreaths. Finally choose the colour of your logo and then add your name and viola - you have a personlised bag combo ready to preview and order.

Tinyme is a Melbourne based (yes Australia) design, development and manufacturing studio solely focused on mass customisation.
The company was set up by 3 dads (who have 15 kids between them) and has grown, with no investment, from a 1 person startup to a 50+ team with separate business in Australia, US and UK.
She loves the colour and the watermelon design - the rucksack is comfortable to wear and she can easily fit her pencil case and school books inside.
The fact that she doesn't have to carry her lunchbox separately is great. The piggyback connector is genius - it slides into the pocket on the front of the bag easily and survived the one mile walk to school without falling off.
The removable silicone lining is a great feature, it literally does just pop out and you can give it a wash as we all know kids tend to come home with exploded yogurt in their bag on a daily basis.
It's unique. There are so many design options, that are all bang on trend - no getting mixed up and bringing someone else's bag home by mistake anymore.
Thank you Tinyme people - again you've created something very special - only thing is my son now wants one.....
