If your kids are dreading going back to school, get them excited and take them back to school shopping. For my daughter, I make a fun-filled day out of our shopping trip. We make a list the night before of everything she needs. We get up early and have breakfast at her favorite pancake place. After we eat, we head out to get our shopping done like a couple of pros. Within just a few hours, we have everything we need and we are headed home.
Choosing The Best Backpack
This year, Caitlin said she needed a backpack that was more functional than fashionable. With Caitlin’s school, their textbooks are online, they complete their assignments virtually, and she even takes notes in class on her laptop. In addition to her pens, pencils and notebooks, Caitlin carries her laptop, iPhone and iPad as well as her graphing calculator.
She wanted a backpack that would easily carry these supplies and offer plenty of pockets and a place to hold her water bottle. Based on her needs, she chose the Signature Kids Backpack in black, from Bixbee, which retails for $44.99. Caitlin even “tricked” out her plain backpack with a few round sponge brushes and acrylic paint. Didn’t it turn out so cute?
Backpack Designs With Kids In Mind
Bixbee is a well-trusted brand specialized in backpacks, duffels and lunchboxes that keeps kids in mind. With Bixbee, their designs take into consideration children’s unique measurements. What’s great about their backpacks is that they’re built tough and durable and are backed by a lifetime warranty.
Bixbee’s unique shape allows for Caitlin’s tech stuff as well as any books and supplies she needs to pack. With it’s contoured air-mesh adjustable shoulder straps, Caitlin said her Bixbee backpack was incredibly comfortable and lightweight. In terms of safety, all of their bags have reflective accents for more visibility.
I felt the quality in the material, hardware and the design the moment I touched it! You’ll also be happy to know that Bixbee’s products are certified PVC, BPA, Phthalate and lead free – how can you say no to that? What’s even better is that Bixbee runs the “One Here.
