This is the last thing I ordered! It arrived today, and I was super-duper excited. Maybe you can tell, because I have the review up already. ☺
You can get the TARDIS Slouch Backpack on Amazon for $14.50 (LINK), but I know you can buy it from other places: Hot Topic and GameSpot are two.
“Police Public Call Box” is written on the flap.
Two pockets are sewn near the bottom of the backpack.
They’re about the size of my hand.
On the right pocket is a “St. John Ambulance” crest thingy.
The TARDIS’s frequently ignored “Pull to open” sign is on the left pocket.
The pockets seal with a magnetic closure.
The backpack’s handle is connected to a (probably fake) strip of leather.
The straps are adjustable.
The main part of the backpack closes with a drawstring mechanism, which I find a bit hard to work.
This is attached to the drawstrings. You can push it up to the top of the strings to help keep the backpack closed.
A buckle also assists in keeping the bag shut.
But if you’re too lazy to undo the buckle every time you open your bag, just pull it right off! The buckle is held onto the backpack with a magnetic closure.
The backpack is bigger on the inside — it fits more than you would expect.
I was able to fit all of this comfortably in the bag, and trust me when I say the backpack can fit more.
On the inside of the bag is a zipper pouch, the perfect size for a phone or wallet.
When I was reading the reviews on Amazon, a lot of people said that the TARDIS backpack wasn’t meant to be a school bag. According to several reviews, it’s not big enough to fit notebooks and three-ring-binders. Well, I could easily fit a college-size notebook in it, but how about a binder? I got a stander three-ring-binder and put the bag to the test.
So, can it fit?
It . . .
. . . sort of can? The binder fits, but barely. I had to wiggle it around in order to get the bag to close somewhat.
I suppose it doesn’t really fit, because with the binder inside, the TARDIS backpack looks more squarish than it’s meant to be.
While this TARDIS slouch backpack may not qualify as a school bag, it still fits quite a lot! You can use it as a purse, while showing off your fandom. Not being able to fit a three-ring-binder doesn’t bother me, because, being homeschooled, I don’t have to tote around school books in my backpack all day.
This bag is 10th Doctor approved! ;)
