The Bookbag for Kids

The Bookbag for Kids
My daughter is already a world traveller and almost constantly on the go so it seems only fitting that I also introduce her to the joys of having some high quality gear to make her treks more enjoyable. She has a nice carry-on, a great backpack and a school bag but I think a nice soft messenger would make a nice addition to her growing collection. This Bookbag from Moop, made from a durable cotton corded canvas, would be perfect for her books, rocks, toys, piano books and art supplies. It features an avocado green organic cotton lining, large interior zipper pocket, 2 deep pockets under the flap, and d-rings to clip her flashlight or tchotchkes. It looks good and is washable. Love it.
