Back to School Extravaganza – Top Backpacks


Don’t underestimate the importance of a cool backpack. It’s one of the few items your child will wear to school everyday, all year, no matter what the weather brings. It obviously needs to be sturdy and carry all your child’s books and supplies, but it also needs to represent who your child is. Their favorite animal, color, cartoon character… whatever floats their boat. This isn’t about being superficial. It’s about building confidence and self-esteem. It’s hard enough being a kid. If we can make them feel special by simply giving them a backpack that they’re proud to wear everyday around their peers, isn’t that worth it? – 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
