There are clothes and shoes to be purchased and new crayons and lunch boxes to buy. Perhaps the most important item for back-to-school is, of course, the backpack.
Selecting the perfect backpack for your preschooler can be tricky. You’ll want something durable for all that toddler activity— you don’t want to have to buy a backup mid-year. And for toddlers, the size of the bag is especially important. If it’s too heavy or bulky, your toddler will probably refuse to carry it.
I’ve rounded up 8 great backpack options for toddlers heading to preschool. They’re durable and deigned with toddlers in mind, and your little one will love the whimsical prints they feature.
