August is fast-approaching, which means school isn’t too far behind. However, in my humble opinion, the best school backpacks for girls are those that can be used for anything, regardless of whether school is in session.
These backpacks can be the ultimate snack holders for adventurous young ladies on trips to the park. Or, perhaps these backpacks could be carriers of your little one’s favorite books from the library during summer reading programs.
I searched, researched, and narrowed down a top 10 list of the BEST backpacks for girls, and from that bigger list, I narrowed it down again to a cute, reliable top 3.
J World New York Lollipop Kids’ Rolling Backpack with Lunch Bag
School has changed tremendously since we were kids. Youngsters today are dealing with more schoolwork, more homework, bigger textbooks, and more paperwork, which can sometimes lead to sore backs and bruised shoulders. Backpacks these days are sent home brimming.
The Rolling Backpack gives girlies a break. The backpack is on wheels with three unique locking mechanisms that keep the book bag from moving when she doesn’t want it to. There are heaps of cool colors and cute patterns, and each rolling backpack comes with a matching, lightweight lunch bag.
Leaper Casual Embroidered Canvas Backpack
Preteen and teen girls are perplexing at the best of times, as their personalities are constantly changing. This canvas backpack is a lightweight, not-too-frilly must-have for cuties with a preference for slightly colorful, but not too loud, school accessories.
The canvas used is made from recycled materials (yay for eco-friendliness), and there are over 20 different colors and patterns for cool gals to choose from. Plus, the shoulder straps are padded, the interior pocket is super-roomy, and there are two exterior pockets for extra school supplies, keys, or other essential girly-girl knickknacks.
Skip Hop Zoo Little Kid Backpack
We have covered the kiddos, preteens, and teenagers, so why not take a minute for preschoolers? This adorable backpack is shaped like a koala, complete with pink ears, friendly eyes, and a too-cute nose. It is lightweight and small enough for a toddler to carry, even when packed to overflowing with little books, toys, and homework. The shoulder straps are lightly padded, and the zippers are accented by little leaves.
However, if a koala isn’t your little lady’s style, there are tons of other animal shapes to choose from, like a hedgehog, zebra, and unicorn.
True to form (for my writing on this blog) - here is a fun new little vid that I made, to show a nice "top 5" list of girls' backpacks for the upcoming school year:
