Lately I’ve been asking my kids to be responsible for carrying their own things to practices, school, playdates—pretty much everywhere. It’s not an easy task, as some days a headband or bookmark is a burden to heavy for them to lift. (Cue violins.) But I’m thinking these adorable illustrated tote bags we found from the Etsy shop Sobiegraphie might help get them excited about carrying their stuff around so I don’t have to.

We love them so much, we even included the unicorn tote among the coolest birthday gifts for tweens and big kids, in our Ultimate Birthday Party Gift Guide.

Kids shouldn’t get to have all the fun, though. These cool illustrations are sophisticated enough for me to throw my book or iPad in these bags — as opposed my daughter’s tote with the TV cartoon characters on it.

While you’re shopping here, be sure you don’t miss the other fun options, like quirky unicorn mugs that will make getting up early for a cup of coffee that much happier. Etsy win!

Check out all the illustrated tote bags over at Sobiegraphie’s Etsy shop. They ship from France (ooh la la) for just $5.
