Cute Backpack Options To Get Toddlers Excited For School

It doesn’t need to be back-to-school season to treat your toddler to a new backpack. The pandemic and constant quarantines and isolation periods have been horribly disturbing to kids and this is not to say that a material object can come close to solving any of it, but amidst all the upheaval it’s nice to treat our little ones just because. Or maybe they’ve outgrown (or destroyed…) their current backpack and it’s legit time for a new one. Whatever the reason, keep reading for three hard-to-resist options.


If it’s cuteness you’re after, it’s hard to beat Milo & Gabby Insulated Backpack. Besides making for an awesome option for young toddlers to store a change of clothes, toys, etc., because it’s insulated it’s great for storing snacks and food as well. Additional features include padded mesh shoulder straps, reflective trim, and chest strap to keep the backpack in place. Each backpack also comes with a personalizable name tag.

If you’re shopping for an older toddler, the Mini Prodigy Backpack from Dare to Roam is an investment piece that can last years (assuming the toddler doesn’t drench it with something). It’s beautifully made with durable anti-microbial and water-resistant nylon (meaning it won’t grow bacteria if juice spills on it during recess) and has a sleek design with room for everything including notebooks, textbooks, food…. it also has organisational pockets for things like pens, chargers and water bottles and you can personalize it with custom monogram embroidery.

Ten Little’s backpacks are lightweight and made from 100% non-toxic Oeko-Tex certified recycled materials. The design is comfortable, padded and adjustable. It’s roomy enough to fit toddler essentials including change of clothes, toys, lunch, etc. and it has two exterior side mesh pockets big enough to accommodate most water bottles. Plus, they sell cute stickers to personalize the backpacks!
