Check out the first range of backpacks, water bottles and lunch boxes from Crate & Kids

Before becoming a parent, I had no idea how much my life would involve searching, washing and refilling the three main items that my daughter takes everywhere: her backpack, her lunch box and her water bottle. A backpack/lunch box/water bottle are a kid’s equivalent of a wallet/keys/phone – you just don’t want to be in the world without them. Now, Crate and Barrel’s line of children’s products, Crate and Kids, has launched a new line of these three essentials that kids will love for their awesome designs and adults will love for their functionality.

You can pair Crate and Barrel with eye-catching looking furniture that never falls apart, or kitchen utensils that look good and last forever, and this new product line has the same combination of being both trendy and durable. The backpacks and lunch boxes are both made from recycled water bottles and have all the features you could need: the lunch box is insulated, the backpack has extra pockets and there are even has two side pockets in backpacks that will hold not one but two water bottles. . Each of the products comes in 17 new designs that hit all of kids’ common interests – space, dinosaurs, rainbows, zebras (ordinary unicorns are last year), and even snakes for the kid who can’t get enough. the reptile house at the zoo. The only problem you might have is which of these lovely designs to choose.


The new range of backpacks is available in three sizes: small, medium and large, so the big and small kids in your family can find the perfect size. And there’s nothing kids love more than seeing their own name prominently displayed, so you have the option to monogram these products – especially useful if your kids want the same design and you want to avoid morning arguments for know who is who. Getting the custom backpack adds an additional $10 to the prices listed below. The full range of patterns can be found on the Crate and Kids site, but a few samples are here.

The medium backpack is perfect for an elementary child. It measures 15 inches tall, 12 inches wide, and is perfect for storing all the essentials (in primary school these days, that seems to be school files, books, tablets, and pop-its). Your child will be well hydrated since, unlike many backpacks that only have one water bottle pocket, this one has one on each side. Padded shoulder straps and an adjustable sternum strap make it comfortable for a child who might be loaded down with gear.

A real dinosaur-loving kid can introduce you to the species of each colorful dinosaur on this adorable backpack, which really looks like a dinosaur party! The small size backpack is ideal for small shoulders, measuring 13 inches high and 10 inches wide. Despite its small size, it still has all the features of larger backpacks: an exterior pocket and two side pockets that will allow your child to easily carry 30 ounces of water at a time. The padded strap on top makes it easy to lift them out, and the outer pocket would be a great place to stash anything that might mess up the goods in the main compartment, like crumbly crackers or markers that might leak.

Lunch boxes and water bottles

Crate and children

Modern parental standards for keeping your child hydrated are higher than they used to be (a viral tweet asked “Do any other 1980s kids remember never having had a drink of water?”) But these water bottles look so good that all of us underhydrated 80s kids , might have to catch them for ourselves. Lunch boxes are also a big step up from the days of brown paper bags and will keep food so fresh and delicious that with any luck you won’t have the dreaded lunch box still full. (and the child who complains that he is hungry) at school bus. There are even more models available on the site, but a few favorites:

This cute shark (a young shark enthusiast will quickly tell you it’s a whale shark, the largest species) on a chartreuse background is so bright and eye-catching that we hope this water bottle doesn’t get lost like the five last bottles have done. Crafted from stainless steel, it’ll keep hot liquids hot or cold for up to 6 hours – the length of a typical school day – so they can sip hot tea or ice water throughout class. Best of all, it’s dishwasher safe, so you don’t have to spend time scrubbing it.

Some kids like flashy patterns and others go for a more understated look. This colorblock lunch box is a great choice for the kid (or adult) who wants a high-quality, hassle-free lunch box. The lunch box is available in navy and ocher as well as yellow and green (the yellow and green option is pictured above). Like backpacks, these lunch boxes can be personalized with your child’s name for an additional $10. The cooler bag has sections inside so you can pack a bag of ice for cold foods without chilling foods that are meant to be kept warm. At 8.25 inches wide and 4 inches deep, it’s big enough to hold plenty of food without being so bulky it won’t fit in the backpack.

Snakes have never been my favorite, but these friendly guys aren’t likely to scare anyone. With bold swirls of red, blue, orange and green, these patterned cobras on a dark green bag with aqua trim are downright gorgeous. If you choose to personalize it, the name is stitched in a cross between water green and baby blue. The exterior pocket is a handy feature that can hold towels, utensils or a little note that will make your child feel extra special in the middle of a busy day at school or camp.

You can mix and match the designs, or get the products in all 3 for a cohesive look. Whether you get them for summer camp or grab them on back-to-school shopping this fall, this new line of matching products will serve you and your kids well during any adventure.
