Last Summer we did a couple of pieces on the My 1st Years mini backpacks that British Airways was giving away to children passing through Gatwick and Heathrow as part of #BA100.
My 1st Years is also selling them directly to the public. You get FREE personalisation which is a nice touch.
In what is presumably a coronavirus-induced sale, the cost of the backpack has been reduced by 50%. At just £12.50 they are very good value indeed, especially as your childs name can be added on for free. Delivery is a flat £3.95 irrespective of how many you order.
You can order one for a child in your life via this page of the My 1st Years site.

We recommend Capital On Tap for limited companies. You earn 1 Avios per £1 which is impressive for a Visa card, along with a sign-up bonus worth 10,500 Avios.
