Here are a few things to consider when shopping for a backpack.

Style and Function

What type of backpack is perfect for your daughter?  Does she like a traditional style? Or maybe a messenger style backpack is more comfortable. There are also slings, sacks, and totes to choose from. Does your daughter need a thermos holder or exterior and interior pockets?


Material is usually a big deal especially if your girl is a little picky about how things feel. There are traditional fabrics like Polyester and canvas or there are backpacks that come with a plush or quilt-like material which is much softer.


Size is important especially for girls who are just starting school. The backpack needs to fit otherwise it can weigh your little one down. Regular sizes are typically 16-17 inches. But you can find girls backpacks in sizes 2-6X, which is the perfect size for those in pre-school through 1st grade.
