Patch Buddies Review (Bubele’s Patch Buddies)

What It Is

Bubele's Patch Buddies are backpacks with space for carrying and storing a book, crayons, crafts, lunch, or snacks. There is also a built-in carrying space on the outside of the backpack for a stuffed character. Each character also unzips to reveal a soft blanket. There are 14 Patch Buddies to choose from (10 animals and four special characters) and five different backpack designs. The Patch Buddies and backpacks are sold separately so that kids can pick the backpack design they like best and pair it with their favorite Patch Buddies character. Each Patch Buddies character retails for $14.99. Each backpack retails for $16.99.

Is It Fun?

Kids will enjoy having their very own backpack just like the big kids and a fun stuffed animal to carry around with them. If young kids have a naptime at their preschool or elementary school, kids can snuggle with the soft blanket inside their Patch Buddies character.

Who It’s For

Bubele's Patch Buddies are for ages 2–7.
