Whether you’re sending your child off to a full day of fifth grade or need a smaller bag that travels with them to preschool, we have a wealth of different backpacks to choose from to carry just the right amount of necessities your child needs. At Pottery Barn Kids, we have backpack designs your child is sure to fall in love with, in just the right size for you to pack a lunch, change of clothes and other necessities. Browse through our wide selection to find just the right backpack for your child’s first day of preschool, Pre-K, kindergarten or elementary school.
Backpacks provide so many opportunities for storage – and for fun. That’s why we offer a range of designs and themes that boys and girls will absolutely adore. Butterflies, hearts and unicorns may be at the top of your youngster’s list, while they might also appreciate sharks, trucks, dinosaurs and transportation themes. Other fun motifs include tigers, camo, elephants and even favourite superheroes, like Batman and Superman. Your child might also like to choose from Justice League or Star Wars characters to have their favourite characters accompany them to school or on outings. There are also classic solid colours available, such as gray, pink, blue and black, for a simpler design.
When it comes to sizing, we have several different size options available to suit different types of school days. For instance, a Pre-K backpack can hold enough items for a half or full day at preschool, as it easily stores a change of clothes, a snack and a book or your child’s favourite toy. The next size up is the small backpack, which holds a lunch bag, two small notebooks, a water bottle and a textbook or book. The small backpack is a great choice for kindergarten, while the large backpack works well for a day of elementary school. It holds a lunch bag, two small notebooks, one large notebook, several books and a water bottle. Many of our backpacks are also available in a rolling style. These backpacks hold the same items as the large backpack, but they have wheels on their bases for easy pulling.
The small, medium and large backpacks also have an area to attach a matching lunch bag from our collections. Each backpack has a 600-denier polyester construction, easily standing up to the elements and quick to clean with a damp cloth.
