Toddler Backpack: Roundup

On the eve of back-to-school I thought I’d share a little roundup of some of my favorite toddler backpacks out there (there are SO many on the market it gets difficult to navigate your way through all that school-supplies-chaos!).

Also, there’s something to be said for toddler-sized packs. It really makes a difference when it comes to a kindergardener lugging around books, supplies, and lunch inside a way-too-big-for-them Dora the Explorer/Spiderman backpack they begged (and begged and begged!) for in the isles of Target. A small child should be wearing a small pack that fits them squarely on the shoulders and evenly distributes the weight of it’s contents. You can read up a little bit on “Backpack Safety” on KidsHealth.org.
