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 – 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
