Back to School with Vampirina - Bootastic Backpack & Spooky Scooter Set Review

E starts nursery in September and she won't let me forget it. She cannot wait to learn new things, play in a different setting all day and most importantly, make some new friends!

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that E is quite the fan of Vampirina on Disney Junior, owning her very own Vee costume and microphone. She was over the moon to receive some spooky goodies to try out - the Bootastic Backpack Set and Spooky Scooter Set from Flair.

The Bootastic Backpack is a fantastic set that comes with the hardshell backpack - just like Vampirina wears in the show! It comes with lots of little accessories too:

  • Lights and sounds necklace
  • Sunglasses
  • Bat wing hair clips
  • Backpack clip
  • Two sheets of stickers

The addition of the accessories made E positively shriek with glee. She can be a very stereotypical girl at times and loves jewellery and sunglasses - anything to add to her sassiness! Her favourite is definitely the lights and sounds necklace and she has played with it so much that she's memorised every phrase that Vee says so she can mouth along, pretending that she is the one saying it. It's very funny!

E has very thin hair so the bat wing hair clips don't stay in very well unfortunately! Maybe when she is a little bigger and loses her, what I call, "baby hair" they will stay in. The backpack clip attaches nicely to the loop on the side of the backpack and E instantly recognised the Creepy Caroline character.

  All of the items fit well inside the backpack, with lots of extra space for any additional things that she decides that she needs. The fact that a lot of it is glittery is a massive win in her books. The backpack itself has one strap that goes across the chest. I did feel that even though I'd loosened it fully, it was still quite short and looked tight. E didn't complain at all though and seemed comfortable wearing it.

She cannot wait to bring it to school and who knows, maybe some friendships will develop, just like in the show, over a mutual love of Vampirina!

The Vampirina Bootastic Backpack Set is suitable for children aged 3+ and can be purchased for £24.99 from Smyths. 

To go with her spooky backpack, E was also sent a little Scooter Set. There are two character sets available; Poppy and Wolfie or Vee and Gregoria - we received the latter.

  These wee sets are made from sturdy plastic. Vee is fully articulated and can move her arms, legs and waist. Vee and Gregoria both have holes in their bases so they can stand on the scooter and skateboard without falling. The scooter and skateboard can then attach together so if you push Vee around on the scooter, Gregoria can follow behind.

  E absolutely loves toys like this as they encourage her imagination. She has been pretending that they are going on trips to the pack and talking about what they are going to do that day. As a parent, I love that Vee is depicted with a helmet and safety gear - great to teach your child to always wear theirs, just like Vee does!

  The Spooky Scooter Sets are also suitable for children aged 3+ and can be purchased from Smyths for £11.99.
