What is it
Hug-mi™ the worlds first fully functional hugging and huggable backpack combining 3 elements, a bag, a hat and a costume. The bag is a substantial size and will fit a water bottle, lunch box, books and toys. It has a large front opening for easy access, fold out character hat and patented fold out ‘arms’ which can be velcroed onto the front of the backpack straps giving the wearer a ‘hug’ while on the move. For free-play the ‘arms’ can be worn like sleeves and have a soft plush section at the end which the child can slip their hand into so they can become their character.
In order to keep on hugging we have adopted bears to match our character bears, Koala, Polar, Grizzly and Panda as a company we will continue to support these endangered animals and keep our Hug-mi community informed of their progress. This enables the user to be part of a greater programme to adopt or support species and charities just by their purchase of a Hug-mi™ character backpack.

What our experts think
Backpacks that children can carry their own toys etc in are great for encouraging independence and this has the added value of being a play character where children can pretend to be one of the bears. The children can learn about the endangered animals they are supporting and develop an awareness of the wider world. The soft material is also comforting for children during travel and can help relieve stress at flying etc.
