Back to School Must haves
Licensed Character Backpacks
Backpacks are the #1 essential for school. A backpack leaves with your child in the morning and stays with them until they get home. It’s essential for holding supplies, books, and lunch. It’s no surprise that kids prefer picking backpacks that show off their personality and interests.
While my daughter doesn’t necessary need a new backpack this year, she did show an interest in the Frozen back pack set from Giant Tiger. The three piece set features Elsa & Anna. The set includes an all-in-one backpack, lunch bag and pencil case. For $22.99 this is a real saving. Choose from Frozen, Spiderman, Secret Life of Pets, Finding Dory and more.
Licensed Lunch Bags
While a lunchbox wasn’t cool when we were in school, it’s a necessity now for kids who stay for lunch. Add extra fun to lunchtime with a licensed lunch bag from Giant Tiger. Licensed lunch bags are just $9.97 and we found them to be very roomy. While my daughter doesn’t use a lunch bag yet for pre-school, she does use a bag to store her little toys.
