We’re in August. And while our children are still enjoying a last weeks of the summer holidays, we can no longer ignore it. Within less than two weeks, school will start again. Is it time for you to look for a new school bag? We already listed the best ones!
There should be sympathy cards for having to go back to school after vacation.
Trendy little toddlers
Nothing is cuter than a little toddler going to school with an ultra-cute school bag. These bags are specially designed so that the little shoulders can carry the school bag as comfortably as possible. Of course, these versions look incredibly cute and will make your toddler skip around the playground with pride.
For the cool kids
When your child goes to primary school he gets a ‘bigger school bag’ as standard. It is important that you take into account the width of the shoulders. A satchel should never go wider than your child’s shoulders. For the first three years, your child can perfectly use one and the same bag. But from the fourth year, it is best to change to a wider format. It also has to be big enough to store all folders and other school supplies.
Watch out for trends, if you don’t want to buy a new school bag every year, it’s best to avoid short-term trends.
Hello smart teens
Now that your child is ready for high school, it’s time for a new school bag. In many cases the adolescent prefers a backpack instead of a traditional bookbag, because that looks a lot hipper. Still, it is important to pay attention when choosing a suitable school bag.
Did you know that the prevalence of back problems among adolescents rises to 66%! In principle, a backpack or bookbag can only weigh 10% of the weight of the adolescent. So make sure your adolescent never carries too many books from home to school or vice versa. It would be better if books were distributed to both arms. But unfortunately, teenagers prefer to be as compact as possible and have both hands free.
