Tomorrow I'm sending my son off to kindergarten with this new yellow Fjällräven Kånken Mini backpack. It's a kid size version of a design classic and a birthday present from us to him. It was originally designed in Sweden in 1978 and is still very much in production, being a best seller all over the world. These bags are great for those little forest trips as they come with a seat pad.
Apart from this warm yellow (my favorite) you can get the Kånken Mini in lots of different colours. Check out the Kånken 30 years website for a fun colour picker, Kånken owners private snaps featuring the bag and lots more.
I might just get me a Kånken myself eventually. A large one, though... Oh, but what colour to pick?
PS. In case you wondered, the garage sale was no success (like so much else these days..). We're not giving up, though – weather permitting, we'll try again next Sunday. This time with some better marketing.
