Preface: I am loath to refer to "back to school" the first week of July, but for this, I will do it.
The mail lady showed up at our door yesterday with a package containing two brand new backpacks for my girls from Stuck On You...and they were pumped! (Why else would 5 and 7 year olds break into a game of "school" on the second day of holidays???)
Ever since Frannie was in Junior Kindergarten my girls have used Stuck On You backpacks, and I love them. The quality is excellent and they make it through the year without problems. (Though it's funny how two kids can be different...Frannie got two full years out of her first backpack, yet Maggie's is too worn and dirty to keep around for another year!)
What I really like about the Stuck On You personalized backpacks ($49.95) is that they are totally customized. You go to the website and choose the colour (pink, navy or red), the design (far too many to list: Frannie chose the French-themed "Oui Oui" design and Maggie picked "Fantasy") and enter your child's name (very helpful when belongings go missing). You can even see what the completed backpack will look like before you order it.
The packs have several zippered sections, and easily hold a lunchbag and water bottle (lots of these back to school items are available personalized from Stuck On You) as well as an agenda and random "necessities" (sunglasses, markers, books, rocks, whatever).
Of course Stuck On You is giving away a customized backpack for a lucky This Mom Loves reader! All you have to do is use the Rafflecopter form below and let me know your favourite backpack design from their website. Extra entries for following Stuck On You and/or This Mom Loves on social media.
Please enter...and then forget about "back to school" for at least another six weeks! Good luck!
