Maisy Mouse Backpack

First impressions

We all have fictional characters that we remember from our childhood. I cannot remember Maisy Mouse, though as I was around 14 years of age at the time I am pretty sure I had moved on from fictional characters in picture books by this time, especially a fictional mouse! Maisy Mouse was developed into an animated TV series, and was screened between 1999 to 2001.

There were a number of characters in the Maisy Mouse ‘adventures’, though as I do not even remember Maisy herself I won’t bore you with even more obscure characters. It is safe to say that in summary, Maisy Mouse is a fictional character that kids used to love, just as they enjoy reading about and watching Baby Jake and In The Night Garden, and just as older generations enjoyed Rupert The Bear, for example.

My experience

The product we have here is the Maisy Mouse backpack. This backpack has a very shiny look to it, with Maisy Mouse clear to see on the front riding her tricycle and pulling her stuffed toy companion along – Panda. This is a simple scene and is very colourful. The material used is PVC, giving that very shiny finish, though this also has its disadvantages. The shiny finish can scuff easily. Not only giving it a dull look, but it can also pick up rubber marks from things like school pumps etc. The feel is very tacky and cheap, and with wear showing on the corners and along the bottom of the bag this is not built to last.

This backpack would be fine for a few terms, and you might even get a year from it if your child is careful. The PVC backpack is not a great invention, but it looks good to begin with, can contain very bright colours, and it is also very cheap to produce. These things are all going to attract parents and children, and initially the purchase is a positive one.

There is still some wear left in this backpack, though it was acquired with little to no use, and simply stored away for some time. Maisy Mouse is not a character you will hear about very often at all, and I didn’t have a clue that she was from my childhood.

The backpack does have just 1 compartment, allowing your child to put everything in the bag at once. It is a shame there isn’t a pocket on the front, though this would only spoil the image, which is the whole point of the bag as far as a child is concerned! The straps are not all that well padded, but as this backpack will not be holding a lot of weight this isn’t much of an issue. This backpack is impractical for sure, but this isn’t a bag designed for practicalities, and these are tiny criticisms as far as a child is concerned.

Price and availability

Maisy Mouse is very outdated, though you can still find merchandise related to the picture book series. Expect to pay around a fiver for this backpack if you can find one, though this is not something that will be readily available in shops, so online is definitely your best bet.

Final thoughts

It is unfortunate that the bag is very basic. 1 compartment, the small size, the flimsy straps and the tacky look – these are all minor points for a child. They are more concerned that Maisy Mouse is looking good on the front!
