Readers’ Choice | Oilily Kids’ Backpacks
Your little one will certainly stand out among the L.L. Bean crowd with this vibrant, artistically illustrated backpack. In fact, don’t be surprised if the teacher catches your kid staring at the fabric and daydreaming during an especially boring lesson. Heavy-duty materials ensure that it’s made to last, and intricate details will keep kids interested in carrying it around for longer than a year. We also love all of the pockets and compartments that make it easy for your kid to stay organized.
