The Flaphappy Backpack is sized to be perfect as a handbag alternative or as a child’s backpack and has the following features:

  • It has pleated sides
  • It’s fully lined inside
  • It’s padded and has adjustable straps to fit just right
  • It’s nice and wide at the bottom, but the top easily stays closed.

The name comes from the fold-over flap at the top, which makes it easy to open & close and has its own built-in pocket.
