Back To School With Stylin Backpacks

It’s that time again when kids across the globe are preparing to head back to school. Our town heads back to school the end of this week!

If your kids are anything like mine, their backpacks are not just for holding books, but a fashion statement! A statement of their personal style and individuality. The cute character bookbags will not longer work for my older children, so I have yet again been on the hunt for a bookbag for my son and daughter.

I did fund some pretty stylin backpacks this week online. Most of the stores here in our area, had the same-ole plastic (falls apart) backpacks and the typical cartoon characters. If your kids are anything like mine, they would rather carry 50 books home a day than be caught in a Barney or Hannah Montana backpack! So, at your service, I am!

Here are a few cool backpacks sure to please the stylish child!

Checkerboard Van Doren BackpackThe Checkerboard Van Doren Backpack is pretty cool with the checkerbaord print. The checkerboard pattern is an old-school print that is sure to be a hit with the skater teen or pre-teen!  The backpack has a generous front pocket with interior organization to allow for lots of stashing room, side mesh pockets and double zipper pulls. Cushioned padded straps, rubber heel tab details and back padding provide support and comfort. Dimensions: 17.5″ L x 13″ W x 6″ D. Material: 100% Cotton Canvas.
