Getting ready for school with Land’s End…
It’s time for back-to-school shopping! And I must admit with Jackson heading off to kindergarten, I am probably even more excited and nervous than he is. I am savoring all the anticipation and preparation, while still somewhat in shock that my baby is heading off to school already.
What about you and your kids – is your house buzzing with first-day-of-school excitement? What purchases are your kids most interested in?
According to a recent survey, 97 percent of kids 6 – 12 report that they “love wearing a new outfit to school on the first day of class.” When pressed for what they thought was the most important, must-have item, girls chose jeans (27 percent), while boys chose backpacks (34 percent).
This past week we hit the store to buy Jackson’s school supplies and today Jackson tried out his new Land’s End Backpack.
- A back panel that adjusts for the best fit
- Extra comfy memory foam shoulder straps
- 360° reflective trim to improve visibility
- Hip belt to help stabilize the load
- For music addicted kids – a MP3/CD player pocket and cord port that keeps them connected to their music
- Two sizes – the Ergo – 17″Hx14″Wx7 1/2″D and the Ergo Jr. – 14 1/2″Hx14″Wx7 1/2″D
This backpack is perfect for keeping your kids comfortable while packing all their stuff back and forth to school. You can check out Land’s End various backpack styles to find the right pack for your student.
