It is so important with the return to school just around the corner to purchase a good bag. There are plenty of bags on the market and it can be difficult to make a choice. A bag needs to have good back and shoulder support which is so important for little bodies. There are plenty of novelties bags which are tempting but we have always bought practical and supportive bags which last and last. A good quality bag will be durable. Children do love novelty/current trends and maybe buy other novelty school items, but look after those little backs and shoulders with a good bag!

  • With back to school just been and gone, these tips were great. Thanks for sharing :-)


  • Great tips! Back support is so important for little and growing bodies.


  • let your child have a say…. I love the ones with wheels and a handle


  • my kids had school bags as part of the uniform in the last school. we are about to start a new school and i will be looking at their school bags they usually are well designed and with a niece with scoliosis worth the money on a good bag.


  • We have a bag as part of our uniform so the school has ensured that it is a good quality bag with the right support.


  • yeah alright, definately have to remember that.


  • Make sure it’s big enough for your particular essentials, too.


  • I agree! Money spent in a good-quality school bag, is money well spent. You don’t need to change school bag every year. Choose a very good one, and it will last a very long time!

    • It does save backs, shoulders and money!


  • My kids were lucky to have an option of buying the bags from school as well. Regardless of where they got it from . a good quality bag with a good sturdy strap will also provide good back support for the children .My daughter used to complain every morning how her laptop was heavy and was lucky she could carry it to protect the items she carried as well as her back .


  • So true! It’s amazing how much school children seem to carry each day, even before sport and music items are taken into consideration.

    • They do have to carry a lot in their bags and it is easy to forget that they are not as big and strong as adults.
