Backpacks and Lunch Boxes That Get an A+

Back-to-School Bags, Pencil Cases, and More

back-to-school backpacks!

We interrupt your beach vacation to remind you of next month’s return to academia. Now that you are sufficiently bummed out (kind of), carry on.

You can keep your touch-screen technology; nothing beats an old-school No. 2 stowed in a personalized pencil case ($25).

There’s nothing cooler than an insulated lunch bag ($20). Except one that snaps onto a backpack.

First-day jitters look even more darling when accompanied by a cuter-than-a-kindergartner book bag ($58) and kneesocks.

We know what little Johnny Appleseed would have used to stash his sammie or snack in — this biodegradable lunch box ($15).
little packrats super backpack!It’s a Bird! It’s a Plane!
It’s a superhero backpack ($15)! PVC-free toddler packs come with matching masks for your caped crusader.
madpax dino backpack!Jurassic Packs
A little bit punk, a little bit paleontologist. The dino-inspired backpacks ($15-$60) come in four sizes perfect for prehistoric pre-K students.

Like the school year, we’re just getting started. Check out more favorite backpacks for minis.
