Unfortunately, just like fashionable purses, fun backpacks can be RIDICULOUSLY priced!
So, I thought I'd pass on a great deal I found and then send you in the way of some other potentially super buys.
(If I was really great, I'd have just the right angle and lighting to capture the coolness, but I'm only kinda great, so you'll have to trust me on this.)
How much was it? $5!!!
Where to get yours? Walmart, IN THE PURSE SECTION.
Is this the only style? Nope, they also had red & blue ones. And, of course, WAY more choices for girls.
Something to keep in mind: This is not a huge backpack. Great size for a younger elementary student. I have done the folder test and it passed!
Not for you? Okay, try these (click on the store name to go to their website)....
Walmart--Character packs, Roller Packs, Great Girl Designs, Boys Designs too. Starting at $7!
Target--For those with more discriminating tastes. Starting at $9.99, but they have a HUGE selection. A buncha buncha. Most of the popular shoes...old and new.
Land's End--If price is no option, then good for you! They have some unique fabrics and fun styles that I hope would last longer than my $5 beauty. So, if you have a classic child, you might check these out.
Lillian Vernon--You can get a personalized backpack for as low as $14.98 here. Some really cute things for both boys and girls. While you're at it, personalize some pencils for your child's teacher as a welcome back gift!
The Children's Place--Some cute ones for girls. Animal mini backpacks that are really fun. All of their styles I see are $15.50.
So, there you have it. Happy Backpack Hunting!!
