The School Bag was the only bag we needed when we were kids. Every year on the first day of school, we were excited to show off our brand-new backpacks. On the other hand, our kids have a few more kids purse than they need for school. Most students carry a second backpack to use for activities after school. Also, women can choose handbags that go with what they are wearing now. Ultimately, today’s young people can’t get by with just one bag. As a parent, I’m often surprised by how many different bags there are when I go shopping. There are many options regarding material, style, size, and price. It’s easy for us to act too quickly. Before you go out and buy backpacks for the kids, take a look at this shortlist.
Who is going to carry it? Me or the Kid?
I wouldn’t blame you if you started to wonder if I was crazy after that last statement. I’m guessing you’ve never had to deal with a child who won’t give up. Kids older than three may want to carry the bags they like, but they won’t always be able to. So, you either end up with a very irritable child or carry the bag. The answer I came up with was a big purse. I could easily put the bag my daughter had left behind in it.
Does it have the right size?
Our children need backpacks that can grow with them. This is truest when it comes to backpacks. If your child’s bag is too big, it will always rub against their body, which can be very annoying. Especially for older children, carrying a heavy backpack can cause back and shoulder pain. The bottom of the bag shouldn’t hang more than four inches below the child’s waist and should rest comfortably on the child’s lower back. The points where the shoulder straps attach to the bag should also be an inch or two below the top of the shoulders. You could also use a girl’s handbag or a cross-body satchel, but they should also be the right size, so they don’t weigh the child down.
Is the Material Appropriate?
Good quality should go without saying. You wouldn’t want your canvas bags to have big holes or your nylon bags to come apart where they are stitched. I saw some cute clear bags for kids, but they were made of plastic and would tear easily. You wouldn’t want the child to cut himself on something sharp. The most important thing to avoid chafing is to keep the bag away from any parts of your body where it could touch rough surfaces. This is especially true for women’s sling bags, which they carry in the summer.
Snaps, zippers, seam covers, and other details should also be of good quality. If the zippers come off or the snaps break, it might be hard for a child to handle the situation. Low quality is shown by sloppy stitching or loose threads, raw, exposed fabric edges that tear and damage the fabric and may even get caught in the zipper. When buying a bag for a toddler, it’s best to choose something soft, like fabric or fur. Did you know that furry clothing is very popular for the upcoming fall season? Even the baby bags will look stylish. And, of course, the bags need to be checked for anything that can be taken out and could cause a child to choke.
