Of all the shopping for the school: books, notebooks, pens and pencils, the bag is the significant, large item - and often also the most expensive in the shopping basket for returning to school.
The books, notebooks, the well-equipped pencil case, the lunch bag and the drinking bottle, add up to a great deal of weight and it seems that the child's body is unable to carry it for a long time. Still, children tend to choose the bag that will accompany them throughout the year (and maybe even more) out of a connection to the brand, image or color they like, while with us - the parents - the main consideration is the desire to maintain their back health and not overload them. For their proper development.
We went out to examine the supply in the chains and check for you the qualities and prices, but before that, an expert tip:
Rami Ben Zaken, Trade Director of the Office Depot chain
, Offers tips for choosing the bag: "First, it is recommended to choose an orthopedic bag that meets the most stringent Israeli standard - one that will keep the children's back, when the choice should be made according to the child's age, height and weight."

The file meets all the needs of children in grades 1-2.
The fact that they can go with a trailing bag and instantly turn it into a bag carried on the back makes a significant difference, unlike bags that attach to a stroller, because even if it swings, it does not fit in the bag so the option to go in the morning with a tetrali and return with the bag on the back is less convenient.
In addition, the Disney characters on the bags connect many children to the product, the innovation in this model which makes it easier to switch between the stroller and the backpack makes the difference, for us this bag has the X FACTOR.
This bag deserves the highest score of the one we tested but due to its not cheap price it will get from us - 5 stars.

The bag is functional and improves the use of two separate bags when needed.
The fact that it is carried on the back without the need to disassemble the stroller, raises its useful value even more.
It seems that its towing system (the wheels and the handle of the trolley) is high quality and will withstand heavy weights.
Its price is cheaper than the price of the previous bag, which is the same in terms of functions, but feels a little heavier and the opening of the zippers in it is a little less soft - weighing its price with the functions it allows, we gave it 4.5 stars.

The bag is relatively large and allows for contents that stop for a day of visiting the garden, the fact that it does not contain cells makes its use less functional, and a bottle of water together with wipes, clothes and diapers, less convenient.
At the same time, it is especially cheap and therefore worth the investment in it, even if as an additional bag in case of need or as an "emergency" bag with items of clothing and diapers in the car or stroller.
Perhaps it would be more suitable for an afternoon visit to the garden than for a daily visit to the garden - 3 stars.
