In a rare flashback moment to seventh-grade (I have blocked out most of my childhood), I am forced to relive the horror that was animal backpacks. What were we thinking, strapping puppies and bears to our backs and walking around wearing them?
I thought we, as a society, had outgrown that trend, realizing there were better purses and backpacks out there to fit our needs, and make our outfit “unique” or “special.”
Apparently I was wrong.
If you head over to Modcloth, you’ll find this backpack for sale. For $113.
Yes, that’s right. This stable dweller, better befitting a fractured fairytale, can now be yours for the low, low price of $113. Won’t you take him home today and parade him around in front of your friends?
Show them how much cargo you can store in his legs. And assure them the dead look in his eyes has nothing to do with being away from the princess’s castle and strapped to your arm instead.
Imagine how cool you’ll look on your first day as a high school senior, carrying around your steed.
Did I say cool? I meant ridiculous.
According to the description, “if you ca[rry] this creative carryall, it will make you a fashion legend!”
Yes, but maybe only in YOUR mind.
Please, do us all a favor, put this pony out to pasture and keep the stuffed animals to your bedroom.
