Update on the great kid backpack search

Thanks to those of you who left recommendations on toddler/preschooler/little kid backpacks. For those of you who didn't see their comments and who might be shopping for the same type of bag, suggestions included: The Children's Place, Pottery Barn Kids, Lands End, Kidorable and Crocodile Creek. All got high praise from the readers who left the comments.

Another reader actually suggested an Etsy store that I had just discovered a few hours before her comment- Blue Calla. My reader said that she had purchased a purse from Blue Calla and really liked it and also said that it was "perfect quality".  I had discovered Blue Calla in a search on Etsy for toddler backpacks and am now in love with this little bag:

Seriously, tell me that isn't the most adorable, girly thing ever! I want it in my size as well as in Vivian's! 

I also really drooled over the Skip Hop backpacks, particularly the bee. So cute! 

Sadly, in the end I had to be practical. Ethan saw a Thomas backpack on clearance at Target yesterday that he had to have and the price was right, so that's what he'll be using.  And Daniel pointed out that we had an old backpack from Ethan's daycare days that would be the right size for Vivian, so I can't come up with a valid excuse to buy a new bag for her either. Darned financial common sense :) 

Here are the kids practicing for the plane trip with their backpacks! 

Disclosure: I received no product and no compensation for this post. Just passing on some information about things that I'm drooling over!

I saw those Skip Hop bags too, I love the Mouse one! I also saw that Kidorable has really cute backpacks. My kids go back to school this week and I only have one backpack so far, yikes! Will have to dig through the closet and see what I have in there too :)
