If you asked Rory, Shu Shu or Catpuccino, they’d agree, in fact encourage you, to pull their tail. Because a hidden secret lurks within! PetSac ($19.99), the first-ever backpack in a plush pet, has kids pulling the tail on the tiger named Rocky — and a total of nine adorable PetSac Pets. The tail acts as a zipper that exposes a full size 14” fashionably patterned backpack that boasts 770 cubic inches (!) of storage space. These animals have got your kids’ backs.
These sweet yet durable patented Pets are a must-have for kids as they head out this fall. Created jointly by NY-based AHQ and Kick Design, a few lucky grownups have gotten their hands on the Pets that transform with a zipper pull into a handy and whimsical backpack.
“This is a great item for travel,” remarked the seasoned TTPM editorial team who review thousands of products each year. “Kids can go to Grandma’s house with a stuffed animal and come back with a backpack filled with goodies.” Its review rated the Petsac 4-5 stars on three parameters for Quality, Is It Worth It & Assembly & Instructions and the reviewer exclaimed in her video, “What I appreciate as a parent is that the nylon is easy to clean, so (if) snacks and juice are spilled…just take a damp cloth to it and it’s fresh & clean!”
One on-air TV host described PetSac this way, “Crafted out of buttery soft faux fur and complete with a friendly smile, this backpack can make the leap from storage hub to your child’s best friend in seconds! The full-size backpack is constructed out of durable Rip Stop nylon fabric and may be easily pushed inside of the stuffed animal and is secured with the bright green zipper on its back. But here’s the cutest part – the animal’s tail serves as the zipper pull!”
The PetSac Original Collection is planned with nine core animals and six custom backpack prints. Choose White Polka Dots, Blue Paws, Red Plaid or three other charming designs. The hardest part will be deciding which Pet to bring home and in what backpack pattern!

My Take on PetSac
My daughter loves monkeys, so I was excited for her to try this. That being said, I have to say her eyes simply lit up when she saw this and she jumped right in to try it out herself. I found that the backpack was very easy to use and very well constructed. It is made of high-quality, durable material, and while the backpack is lightweight, I was impressed with how much it could hold, and being made out of high grade material, it can withstand a lot. The way this works is that you pull up the tail and inside is a backpack that folds out. The backpack does fold out easily and you are ready to go. That being said, you simply reverse the process to transform your backpack back into a stuffed friend. My daughter had to practice a few times to get the hang of it, but now can do this with ease, and she is seven, so it works well, and she loves her new friend!
