Lassig Backpack

Preschool And Kindergarten Must Haves For Back To School 7 Daily Mom, Magazine For Families

Probably one of the biggest buying decisions of the school year is the backpack. After all, your child’s backpack will follow them to and from school for many days over the next school year (or more if you choose a sturdy one). It will encounter school bus floors, dirty field trips, minivan back seats and countless other journeys. That’s why it’s important to choose a bag with great construction. Lassig offers quality bags that are also toxin free in a world where 75% of kids bags on the market are still made with PVC, a known carcinogen!

Lassig’s Mini Big backpacks are perfect for your preschool or kindergartner. The size is just right, smaller than a full size backpack but still large enough to bring home a Friday folder. These bags are so packed with features you won’t believe it. Sturdy construction and padded straps make the mini big comfy for your new scholar, with an added chest strap for extra security. The large main compartment has 3 pockets perfect to bring a special trinket to school or to stash an extra pair of socks. There is a drink holder on the side of the bag, saving room inside for books. Additionally, the outer pocket is thermal, making it a perfect place to stash lunch.
