The coolest backpacks and bags for preschoolers and little kids: Back to School Guide 2014

Coolest backpacks for preschoolers | Back to School 2014

We’re so excited to bring you our annual Back to School Shopping Guide! Whoo! While you were busy drinking in the rest of summer, we were all busy combing the web to find our favorite back to school goodies to help get everyone a little more excited for September…or uh, early August, for a few of you. (Sorry Nashville.) We’re kicking things off today with the coolest backpacks and bags for preschoolers and the younger kids in your life, which is always one of our favorites. How sweet is it to pick out your child’s very first backpack that no doubt will be immortalized for life in those 8 zillion first day of preschool pictures?

And what would our guide be without a killer giveaway? This year it’s a $1000 back to school giveaway that we like to think of as a little something for you, a little something for the kids. Scroll down for all the details; entering is as easy as leaving a comment.

This all comes to you thanks to our amazing (amazing!) sponsor, HP, which is a major fixture in our own homes. We absolutely flipped when we learned about the cool new thing they’re doing to save parents time and money: They’ve launched the HP Instant Ink replacement service which can save families as much as 50% on the cost of Original HP ink. Plus your printer actually alerts HP when it’s time for more ink so it can be auto-shipped to you for as little as $2.99 a month. Be sure to check it out because we sense you’ll have a little more printing to do come fall.

Happy shopping, cool parents!

Coolest preschool backpacks and bags: Parisian tote from My Sweet Muffin
Parisian tote ($32, My Sweet Muffin)

coolest preschool backpacks and bags: Hello Kitty rainbow backpack
Hello Kitty rainbow backpack ($39.99, eBags)
Forgive the analogy, but we’re starting to think that Hello Kitty is like the cockroach of licensed products — it will never die. This fun rainbow backpack is proof that she just keeps staying relevant — and our kids just keep asking for more of her.

    My two year old would feel so special to get his very own “Felephant” backpack to wear as his two big brothers get on the school bus together. He says he’s ready to go to school and ride the bus but I think wearing a new (not a hand-me-down) adorable elephant backpack is a great compromise! :)

    My daughter is going to kindergarten this year and would so go for the pixilated looks of Agatha Ruiz bags, super girly but not too distracting – she’s a little reserved ;) My son is going to preschool and I can picture him with the Fjallraven Kanken bags in something bright and energetic just like him (plus it’ll look awesome with his glasses!)

    The Parisian tote is absolutely adorable and perfect for my newest to take to the library! Having individual totes for the library helps the kids take responsibility for the books they borrow and narrows how many books they choose based on what they can carry! Win, win for a mom of 3 kids who all love to read- sometimes I even have a hand to borrow a book for myself!!
