7 Popular Back to School Backpack Choices

Backpacks are a top priority when the beginning of the school year rolls around. Carrying supplies, homework, and snacks, this bag carries everything needed to get your child through the school day with ease. By following safety guidelines, backpacks can also help reduce stress and strain on their body from lugging around heavy books. Aside from their functionality, however, is the style factor associated with them. This is the accessory kids will be carrying every day, so it’s important to pick one they’ll love. But which backpack brands and themes are popular this year? We’ve compiled a list of seven bag themes kids are raving about and brands parents are loving.

Child Reaching Into Backpack

1. Disney Backpacks

Various retailers and brands offer lines featuring these lovable characters and movies, so it’s easy to find one that offers the design, as well as the size and build, that will work best for your child. Whether they’re currently loving the Incredibles, Wreck It Ralph, or are all about Disney princesses, a backpack sporting favorite characters is sure to be a hit.

​​2. Pokémon Backpacks

Like trading their favorite Pokémon cards, slinging a Pokémon backpack over their shoulders is still as popular as ever for kids. From Pikachu to Ash Ketchum, Pokémon characters have been well-loved for years. And we can’t forget about the ever-popular pokéball design, which is a fan-favorite that transforms a backpack into a magical accessory just like from the game. Similar to Disney, various brands offer Pokémon backpacks that you can choose from. From popular store brands like Walmart and Target, to specialty backpack brands, there’s a Pokémon bag for every price range and preference.

3. Harry Potter Backpacks

There’s something irresistible about the magical Harry Potter series. This classic series is as loved today by kids as it was back in 1997 when the first book was released. Give your little one a piece of the wizardly fun with a backpack featuring their favorite character or book. You could even sneak in a small magic wand to turn after-school playtime into a magical adventure.

4. Paw Patrol Backpacks

Toddlers and young kids can’t get enough of Paw Patrol, an animated TV series featuring six rescue dogs and their human friend Ryder who work together to save the day when they can. Watch your child’s eyes light up when you hand them a Paw Patrol backpack for them to carry with them throughout the day. Pick one with enough room to fit all of their necessary supplies, and maybe even enough room for a stuffed animal or action figure of their favorite patrol pup.

5. Nike Backpacks

As your kiddo gets a bit older, you can’t go wrong with a Nike backpack. This brand is popular for everything from their sneakers to their clothes—and their backpacks are no exception. The Nike swoosh logo is easily recognizable and loved, and their bags are made with quality materials that stand up to everyday wear and tear. Choose a bag with water-resistant material like a tough polyester for a backpack that can take your child from class to after-school sports practice with ease.

6. Jansport Backpacks

Even popular for college students or adventure-loving adults, this brand is proving to be a classic that appeals to a wide variety of style preferences with a durable build that can last years if properly cared for.

7. The North Face Backpacks

They also come in a wide variety of colors and patterns so you can pick your little one’s favorite.
