My kindergartener uses this daily! The zippers work fine and have never given her any problem. Love that is has two mesh outside pockets. One side she puts her water bottle, and the other side she stuffs her mittens in-and I can see at least she has her mittens with her. It has a large main area and a smaller second area. Great to keep homework folders in larger area pocket,
. Smaller zipped area is great for packing a snack, or other items. My daughter loves this backpack and its lasted well with no problems.
This backpack is adorable and my daughter loves it. The mesh pockets are great for water bottles or other small items and the front pocket is handy for items that need to be separate from the books and folders in the main pocket. If your child needs to carry any heavy books, this backpack will not work. We bought this at the beginning of the school year and by Christmas the bottom corners were beginning to shred. As she only brings books home once every week or two, I hoped it would hold out to May, but by mid-February, nearly half of the bottom of the backpack is in tatters and you could literally put your hand inside the bag from the bottom. So disappointed in the quality of the materials used. Bags like this should have reinforced bottoms to ensure this doesn't happen.
