Looking at all the space-themed school supplies and cool gear we’re this year, we were thinking…wow, we could do a whole post on this! So, that’s just what we did. In fact for this year’s annual back-to-school shopping guide¬†we decided to devote each post to a different hot trend that our kids our loving.

That way, you can put together a collection of the coolest backpacks, lunch bags, clothing and gear for your kids not just by size or function, but to suit your kid’s own style, tastes and interests.

With that, check out all these awesome back-to-school items for fans of space, stars, and astronauts. And keep an eye out for even more over the next few weeks! We’re going to hook you up big time.
