Chip the monster and Kiki the backpack

crochet amigurumi monster backpack

Schools reopen their doors and Chip the monster is thrilled for his first day. He is waiting for it, many years now and he’s excited that his time has finally come.

Kiki, on the other hand, Chip’s best friend and favorite backpack, feels quite the opposite. She never wanted to go there, she prefers to travel and see the world.

Fortunately Chip convinced Kiki about the wonderful things she will learn on the school and now she is ready to try it. I hope she loves it!

Is your kid related more to Chip or to Kiki? I know mine are definitely travelers, just like Kiki!

Either way that cute little monster and his backpack are super easy to make and you can have them ready to be given as gift, for your kid’s first day at school!
