Sure, your kids will have new pencils and binders and jeans, but we all know they're most excited about their brand-new back-to-school backpacks. Whether your little ones are heading out to preschool this year (sniff) or need something uber-cool for their brand new middle-school hallways (sniff, sniff), we found the ultimate school bag choices to flaunt their inner coolness and sense of style. (And to be organized and studious, of course.) Make sure to check out our readers' choice section for even more of the hottest backpacks, and, if we missed one, nominate your favorites here.

Best for Toddlers | Blabla Kids Canvas Backpack
For toting toys, clothes, and dry snacks, you won’t find anything cuter than these canvas backpacks from Blabla Kids, featuring the illustrations and characters we’ve come to love. (It’s especially cute if your little one already has a Blabla Kids doll, since they tend to be a favorite baby lovie.) And because the canvas backpacks aren’t too tiny, your toddler can continue to use it on weekends as he or she gets older.
