    Preschoolers need backpacks just like their big-kid counterparts – there’s snacks and lunch to tote to school, plus a change of clothes for when things get messy. Backpacks for preschoolers should be appropriately scaled down to ensure they don’t get too heavy, and features like padded straps and easy-open zippers mean kids can wear and use them with ease and comfort. Of course, durability should be a big consideration since the bag is bound to get dragged on the ground or wedged on the car floor. Bright colors or characters may also encourage kids to carry their own bags instead of it handing it to mom or dad.
