I can’t even describe how my heartbeat accelerated when I saw these adorable Les Deglingos backpacks. Made from very thick corduroy these backpacks are so full of cuddly character I want one for myself, never mind my child. Les Deglingos also makes a range of toy animals from the same fabrics, as well as hand puppets and even baby booties. They are made in France and I cannot find South African stockists online anywhere, except that they did exhibit at the Baba Indaba. You can order them online via Citymob until the 24th March for R349. Beyond that, I’m not too sure. If anyone knows where to find these toys and backpacks locally please let me know. These backpacks will not only make a statement but they are also lovely to cuddle on winter days.
