Review: Oompa - Crocodile Creek
The first day of the school year is always so exciting! I love back-to-school shopping and that my son is at an age where he lets me pick out the cutest clothes and accessories for him. There are two problems that I face when shopping for my son: (1) he is rough and everything needs to be of high quality to survive his high energy level and (2) it has to be super cute because I love the memories and photographs. I was thrilled to have the opportunity for Oompa because they are known for high quality products that are also adorable! I love that they focus on good quality products that are slightly more expensive, but not unreasonably expensive. I think that their buyers have excellent taste that is in line with mine. They get that moms like me love the memories that come along with good quality products for their children.
I received the Crocodile Creek Race Car Backpack shown above, along with the matching Race Car Stainlees Steel Water Bottle. I knew that my son would like these because of the race car, but I didn't realize that he would LOVE them! I washed the stainless steel water bottle and filled it with water while he was napping and then placed both items on the living room table so that I could see his reaction when he woke up. It was priceless! He ran over and put the backpack on without my help and then drank ALL of the water from the stainless steel water bottle. He told me all about his backpack and bottle with the "race car"! It was precious. He has been playing with them all evening. I can tell that he feels special.
I am so happy that he loves this backpack and stainless steel water bottle. I think that the backpack will last us the school year because it is nice and thick, well stitched, and the zippers are great. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if it lasts a few years because it fits well now, but there is room to grow since the straps are adjustable. I also like that there is a spot on the side of the backpack for a water bottle because that will encourage him to drink more water. He always seems dehydrated at the end of the day because he is too busy playing with the other kids to take a break to hydrate. I also love that the stainless steel water bottle is reusable and reduces waste which is important to teach him. If you haven't done your back-to-school shopping yet, I recommend that you check out Oompa.com! I think that they are awesome because of their emphasis on good quality, trendy styles, and excellent customer service.
I love the story on Oompa's website and I wish that there were more companies that focused on providing outstanding quality products and excellent customer service:
