Optari Customizable Backpacks and Wristlets (Review and Giveaway)

Flowers. Soccer ball. Ballet shoes. Kids just love to customize their stuff, don’t they? My teen has quite a collection of charms for her shoes – I love that she shows who she is through these little customizations. Wouldn’t it be fun to have charms on other kids’ stuff? Like backpacks, purses, and bags? Recently I learned about a fun way to jazz up your child’s backpack.

Optari is the maker of fun, colorful bags, cute wristlet purses, and custom charm accessories called Fobbz.


Optari‘s backpack line features:

  • Backpacks in 6 vibrant colors: purple, black, blue, green, red, and purple.
  • The backpack has two large internal compartments, one large internal pocket, a pocket for pens, side net pockets.
  • The dimensions of the backpack are 6″ x 13″ x 17″.

What makes the Optari Backpack unique is that there is a front panel. This front panel allows the child to decorate to his heart’s content with Mini Fobbz, which are approximately 2 inches each. And don’t think that your child will have to pick and choose what Mini Fobbz to use. In fact each Optari Backpack can hold up to 21 Mini Fobbz. There’s plenty of room for all the Mini Fobbz!

The Mini Fobbz come in an assortment of shapes and sizes including:

  • Cheer
  • Biker Dog
  • Coll Penguin
  • Faerie
  • Horse
  • Owl
  • Mermaid
  • Robot
  • Skate Monster
  • And so many more.

Your child can use the Mini Fobbz on the wristlet, backpack, or Sol Bag. If your child plays only one sport or only has a couple of interests, think about purchasing one or two of the Large Fobbz to accessorize his backpack; each Large Fobbz is about 4 inches wide.

My daughter loved the purple backpack I was sent by Optari. She very quickly customized it with the large Fobbz. She chose the Butterfly and Heart Fobbz. Cute! And the backpack is so useful too.

In addition to backpacks, Optari also has a new Wristlet. The Wristlet is the perfect size bag for carrying back-to-school essentials. Features one internal compartment, a wrist strap, and a flap that holds the Mini Fobbz collection.
