6 Cool Knapsacks Kids Will Love

6 Cool Knapsacks Kids Will Love - Parents Canada

To kids, knapsacks are the most important school accessory. Get one that’s too small and you’ll dread packing your books all year. If it doesn’t have any compartments or pockets, you run the risk of your water bottle leaking all over your homework. And don’t even get us started on the straps. The perfect configuration is key. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up six awesome knapsacks to meet all your kiddo’s needs.

Pep Rally Backpack

Why we love it: This versatile backpack will work for a kid in pretty much any grade. The trendy ombre pattern spans age ranges, and it’s built to last. With side pockets, an interior laptop compartment, a doubled-zipper main compartment, padded, adjustable straps and more, it’s as practical as it is comfortable.

Jetstream 3D Cat & Gold Sequence Backpack

Why we love it: It has cat ears and gold sequins—need we say more? Kidding. (Kind of.) This kitty carry-all features multiple compartments for easy organizing, a padded back and shoulder straps and a zippered front pocket.


Vans Old Skool H20 Ashley Blue Backpack

Why we love it: This pick is a professional, muted light blue on the outside, and a black-and-white checkerboard party on the inside. It features a 15” laptop sleeve on the interior and a zippered storage pocket on the outside. Padded shoulder straps and water bottle pockets round out the design.
