School bags galore!

It's almost time for the kids to be getting back to school and we've been keeping our eyes out for lovely bags for all ages. Here's what we've found! 

Apple and Mint

One of my favourite new finds is Apple and Mint. Created by an Australian mama who wanted a great bag and lunchbox for her own kids, these bags are eco-friendly, made to last and totally cool! I particularly love the way that the lunchies have their own cooler.

Penny Scallan bags

Penny Scallan designs delightful, (and more importantly) robust bags for kids. You can get them in toddler and school-aged sizes and there are designs for both boys and girls. These bags have a number of pockets for all your children's bits and pieces and you can get loads of matching accessories.

Of course it would be remiss of us not to mention our own store in this article. We have heaps of great schoolbags and backpacks on offer at the BabyBites store. But far and away our favourite has to be the Roarsome Designer Dinosaur schoolbags. Robust, funky and practical!

Roseanne Jones

For something a bit punkier, how about these bags from Christchurch artist Roseanne Jones? Great for children with a bit of 'tude, with matching accessories available.

Finally, here are some cute-as-pie bags for all ages. The big kid backpack is big enough to hold textbooks, lunch, a laptop and more. These durable nylon packs have a large interior space with a smaller interior pocket. You can get Beatrix bags from
