What features should you look for in a kids backpack for kinder?
With so many cute kids backpacks on the market for kids these days, it’s no wonder our heads are spinning on which is the best. I mean, its just a toddler backpack, right? Well, sort of.
Make sure it has dual compartments
A front pocket big enough always comes in handy for a spare change of clothes for kindergarten or childcare use!
Get a toddler backpack that fits together with other essential items
Your child will love that the water bottle, cooler bag, lunch box all match. Firstly, the products fit together as designed. Secondly, your child will love to show their themed products off at kinder or childcare.
It needs to be durable
A child's backpack is going to get thrown around, dropped, pulled and sat on. Buy products that are going to last, rather than poor quality items from large retail stores. This includes having quality stitching, quality zips that are firm but reliable and straps that are not going to break.
Make sure the zips are good quality
The zips on the kids backpacks are going to be pushed to the limit. Make sure they are made to the highest standard and the bag easily opened by your child - the smoother the feel, generally the higher the quality.
No mesh on the side pockets
These always break first. Make sure they are not mesh, which will break in no time. If it does, your child's water bottle will be rolling down the footpath! Also, remember, dual pockets are best for more flexibility. Our backpack has a high pocket for the water bottle, sure to keep the water bottle from falling out when your child is running!
Soft carry handles
Will you end up being the one to carry it in and out of day care? Soft carry handles make it easy to juggle all the items on the morning drop off. Make sure it also has a special loop for hanging the backpack on the hook at kinder or child care, which will prevent the main handle from additional wear and tear.
Does the backpack have dark shades?
Dark Shades of blue and pink help to keep things looking cleaner for longer. The backpacks are likely to be dragged along the floor after a long day at school or kinder. Light shades are inherently much more difficult to keep clean.
You may not have realised, but personalising your child's backpack can be an issue. Conceal your children’s names and identity on outer wear items, such as tops, backpacks, water bottles and hats – always think Stranger Danger!. Check out our blog on our thoughts on that topic.
