5 Features Of Best Backpacks For Preschoolers

1. It Should Be Not Too Big and Not Too Small

The size of the backpack is very important here. Why? This is because at toddler age, your child is growing and developing rapidly. Carrying too big and too heavy backpack would have negative influence on your baby's posture development. If it lasts long, it could end up even in scoliosis.

Most optimal dimensions of the backpack for preschool age is approximately 13 inches by 11 inches and 4 inches deep. So generally speaking, the top of the bag shouldn't go over his shoulders and the bottom of the backpack should rest in the arch of your baby's back. The backpack should be lightweight too.

My advice is to check reviews for given bag first. If there are many positive ones, most likely the purchase will be satisfying both for you and your baby.

2. Great Backpack Must Have Enough Space for All Necessary Supplies.

Choosing backpack with several compartments is a good idea. Why? To be sure your baby will be able to pack all necessary things.

Toddlers and preschoolers love to carry proudly their VERY IMPORTANT THINGS. Dolls, teddy bears, toy cars, all kinds of plush toys...

I love watching my little Maria collecting all kinds of items into her bag. Then she walk around and show everyone that she has a super backpack :)

So make sure, the bag has an outer pocket to hold small items, like crayons, pencils and other. An inside pouch is good for storing a jacket, teddy bear or change of clothes. Finally a side compartment is ideal for holding a sippy cup or a bottle with water. It is important to ensure enough fluids to your child.

Quick tip

Wearing the straps over both shoulders will help your baby to avoid leaning and bending of the spine. Encourage your kid to wear the backpack properly.

3. School Backpack Should Be Comfortable to Use

If you're plannig to buy a backpack for everyday use, it should be comfortable even if it's worn often. So when choosing one, focus on the following features.

Buy only backpacks with two shoulder straps. This will ensure the weight will be spreaded more evenly.

Look for bags with wide, cushioned shoulder straps, which can be easily adjusted. This will allow you to set the optimally according to your baby's body. Also wide straps won't cut in your toddler's skin on his shoulders.

The back of the bag should be padded. First, it will ensure the support for the lumbar. Second, it will decrease the tension on the shoulders. Three, it will prevent pencils, scissors and rulers from piercing your toddler's back.

It is great if the backpack has a waist belt. It helps to spread the weight more evenly across the little body.

Quick tip

As a rule of thumb, your child is not allowed to carry more than 10 percent of his/her body weight.

So each day pack your child's backpack only with what he/she really needs.

4. Pick Only Quality and Safe Backpacks

Consider buying a quality back pack for your preschooler. Why? Because the market is full of cheap bags. On the one hand, these backpacks have bright, flashy colors and designs, but on the other hand are made of poor quality materials.

Remember, preschoolers don't care much of their things. So pick a bag made of strong materials and sturdy stitching. Which materials should I look for? Fabrics like canvas, nylon or ballistic are durable enough against quick wearing and tearing.

Fastenings - should be easily to open. Little kids gets nervous quickly when they have to struggle with them. Zipper fastenings - only made of plastic. They should be also big and chunky, so your little one doesn't have problems with grasping it. Velcro fastenings are quick and easy way to lock a bag. The downside is, they lose their stickiness after some time.

It is also very wise to pick a backpack which is water resistant.

So if you buy a cheap one, you must take into account, you'll be buying another one in the near future. (As you know, this rule applies to almost every aspect of our lives).

Quick tip

It is great if the backpack you've chosen has some reflective elements in its design.

They increase your baby's safety by making him more visible when it's getting dark.
