School bags. If you were taking an 8yo girl to get a new school bag, where would you take her?

Backpack style rather than cross body. Tia

Paperchase, accessorise, or Cath kidston.

I'd take the easy option and sit with them and look on ebay.

For £94 I'd want a school bag to carry me to school and do my homework for me!

Jack wolfskin. Their rucksacks are great and a smallish one reasonable price. Will last years ( I've had mine 20+ years, looks new). Also good for their spines as padded more if they carry heavy stuff

Isn't that what a big brother or sister is for?

Bloody hell -£94 for a backpack????

How much stuff does an 8 year old need for school?
I'd be looking for a cheap and cheerful one from the market

How much stuff does an 8 year old need for school?

Perhaps a lot more than your little one does.

But generally the bags would be multifunctional and used outside of school as well, as a carry on when flying for eg, or when they're going to their nana for a sleepover.

Its no big deal really and you know the old saying - buy cheap buy twice. Perhaps even three or 4 times over.

I wont be able to come back to the thread. Im going on holiday in 10 minutes and not ignoring any replies.

I could buy a bag 9 times over for that price and it still not be a false economy!

Paperchase. Good size, nice prints and matching accessories

A little girl I know has a Cath kidson one and it is so cute but I would check out Tk Max for bargains.

Cannot beat asda either

dementedpixie Tue 28-Jul-15 08:44:14

We have bought from argos and supermarkets in the past

Lurkedforever1 Tue 28-Jul-15 08:44:53

To add to tkmaxx etc, sports shops have a good few, and Argos and bigger toy shops are usually good for ones in the latest fad.

DS got his from sports direct.

Namelesswonder Tue 28-Jul-15 08:47:58

I just got school bags in Shuch, small but unusual selection.

PrimalLass Tue 28-Jul-15 08:52:16

DD has a backpack from Boden. It has lasted really well.

Pixi2 Tue 28-Jul-15 08:54:50

We use online shops like truffle shuffle.

DD's budget for senior school ( primary was school rucksack) was £25 we got a nice good quality bag from Animal (that she has already packed!)
