If Minecraft ate a bunch of your kids’ time this summer, this Minecraft Creeper backpack is the perfect way to head back to school, where sadly, Stampy Longnose videos are not part of the daily curriculum. Of course teachers will not accept “The Creeper ate my homework,” as a viable excuse but that shouldn’t stop your young Minecraft fan from begging for a creeper backpack to start the school year.

With oodles of compartments, pockets, organizers, and sturdy double zippers, the Minecraft Creeper backpack from our pals at ThinkGeek is an unusually savvy way to merge video games and a workhorse of a bag. It’s got everything you’d want from a backpack, including padded straps, a top loop, and padded compartments for tablets or laptops or up to 36 stacks of cobble, evidently.

Just be aware it isn’t afraid of ocelots, should you encounter any. And, you know, it won’t explode in front of your child. Which is a good trait in a backpack.
