Our backpacks for kids come in bright colors and cool designs for every kind of student from k-12.

They're comfy to carry and made to last with tough fabrics, sturdy zippers and strong stitching. They can keep up with your kids, whether they're running to the bus, swinging them around on the playground or stuffing them with their schoolbooks, lunchbox, a favorite toy and a surprise for show-and-tell.
