Back to School – Top Backpacks

boys_backpack

On your mark, get set, go! The mad dash to purchase that laundry list of “Back to School” supplies is here. While certain items like pencils, notebooks and paper are a no brainer, a backpack is something that should never be bought on a whim.

Unlike clothing and shoes, your child will not outgrow their backpack during the school year, or need to swap it out when the weather changes. It’s the one constant they will proudly wear everyday to school. So why not make it something special?

Always remember a backpack is way more than just a vessel to carry your kid’s books to school. It’s an extension of their personality. A representation of who your child is to their peers. Maybe your kid loves kittens? Maybe it’s a certain cartoon character? Maybe they’re obsessed with pink? Whatever floats their boat. In the end, it’s all about making them feel good about themselves by building their confidence and self-esteem…all while getting their homework home in one piece. – Jill Topol

Back to School Extravaganza – Best Backpacks

I don’t know about you, but for me it feels like this summer just flew by. They say that the older you get, the faster time seems to pass. Sadly, I think this is true. Hopefully for our kids, summer vacation has felt like an eternity filled with sunshine, swimming pools and popsicles.

To help make the transition from summer vacation to back to school a little easier, Super Goody Bag brings you the best in back to school essentials.

We start off our Back to School Extravaganza with the all-essential backpack. We had trouble narrowing it down to just 12, so we give you the lucky 13 bakers dozen of the best in boys & girls bags. It’s hard enough to get kids to do their homework. At least we can give them something cool to schlep it home in. – Jill Topol
