Oz Good as It Gets

crumpler bags!

When it comes to how easily Junior has transitioned to school, you talk a big game.

Back it up with a Crumpler backpack. Originally created for Aussie bike messengers, the kid-size bags are tough enough to withstand a good dragging down subway stairs (and a few don’t-leave-me tantrums).

The Baby Pea, designed with preschoolers in mind, has comfy, padded straps that fit easily over tiny shoulders. The main zipper pocket leaves just enough room for snacks, water, and a sweater.

Bigger minds (read: kindergartners) will appreciate the extra cargo space of the Baby Anchovy. Plus, a reflective strip along the base helps your little scholar say, “Watch out, world, here I come.”

Wonder where he gets that from.


Available at Crumpler, 45 Spring Street, at Mulberry Street (212-334-9391); 49 Eighth Avenue, between Horatio and Jane Streets (212-242-2535); online at crumplerbags.com.
