Harriet Horse Pull-Along Plush Backpack

Typical Amazon Review:

“Not sure why the other buyer rated it 1-star; this is a beautiful rolling backpack that my kids absolutely adores! The plastic feels strong and it has held up to all the bumping, rolling, dragging, etc that my kid throws at it. The best part is that the rolling part detaches in 2 seconds and the soft part can be put in the washer. I highly recommend it to anyone! PS. I received mine 2-days after order it. ”

This 11” X 3” X 11” Dora the Explorer Diego Animal Recuer plush backpack has a front opening with magnetic closure and a zipper side opening.

Typical Amazon review comment:

“If your child loves Diego, they will love having their own "rescue pack". My 2 year old has the best time with it; it's the perfect size for a toddler and will hold several rescue items. The only negative is that it is not a sling like Diego's, but that doesn't slow my child down!”
