Backpacks for young kids (3-12 years old)
Since your child is not carrying anything heavy, choose a small and lightweight bag. We have a lot of adorable options for boys as well as girls.

Quick tips to protecting your child’s spine:
Backpacks should have straps that are adjustable to help distribute the weight over both shoulders
Get your child to wear a padded waist strap too as this helps to take the weight off the shoulders and lower back
A bag with wheels is even better than a backpack. Many brands have both straps and wheels
A child should never carry a backpack with a weight that exceeds 10%-15% of his/her body weight
