Have you noticed what I’ve noticed? That it seems like everyone has jumped into the backpack business these days? From Garnet Hill and the Gap, to Hanna Andersson and Pottery Barn Kids (and the old standbys, Lands End and LL Bean), there is no shortage of cute, colorful and fun backpacks to choose from.
So today, I’ve rounded up my favorites for you. Most of these have matching lunch bags/boxes too (but I’m not including them here).
Dante Beatrix backpacks (little kid on the left, big kid on the right) are, hands down, the cutest thing going. They’re expensive, but holy cow, they are CUTE.
The squirrel backpack is fuzzy! Elena would go crazy for it. Oompa Toys is a good place to buy the backpacks and lunchboxes; you can also get them directly from the Dante Beatrix website, where you’ll find some super cute t-shirts too.
These next two are Dabbawalla backpacks. I *love* the “Fast Track” backpack on the left. They have several other designs, including a great puppy backpack, and interesting lunch bags.
