It’s one of the most exciting school essentials to buy: your kids’ backpack. Whether they’re heading to preschool with snacks and nap essentials or shaking the halls of elementary school, they need something fun and functional. It’s also good if it lasts longer than a single school year. So how to choose? Well, the best backpacks for kids are big enough to carry all their supplies without weighing them down or making them look like an unsteady turtle.
And since there’s an overwhelming amount of choice, here’s a pro tip: pick a few you like, then let them pick their favorite! (And don’t forget the perfect outfit for the first day of school!)
From toddler backpacks that will last for years to the best kids backpacks for the first day of school, we’ve put together a selection that makes it easy to choose. (Maybe.😉)
