School is back, and parents throughout South Africa are rushing to get their kid’s school-ready. Like every parent, you have a long list to get through – from school uniforms, sports gear, and stationery to shoes. Then there is your little one’s bag – an essential item on your list.
Every kid needs a school bag; not any bag, but a perfectly sized bright, colourful backpack with a few images or a cartoon character that makes them feel proud and excited about wanting to go to school and learn. However, these popular items are known to be one of the first articles to go missing, end up in lost and found, or break. As a result, many parents have turned to the concept of personalised bags instead of wasting money on generic bags from local retailers. Here’s why.
A Comfortable School Bag is a Necessity
A school bag carries around essentials, books, bottled water, and a lunch pack every day. It must be both waterproof and durable so it can last the year. Your little one’s school bag must also be comfortable with a padded back, adjustable and padded shoulder straps, and it must have pockets for water bottles and other basics. It should also have a label to tell the bag apart from other bags, as there will be many in the same colour. You can expect to find these qualities with a personalised bag - and not with a generic from a local retailer.
Personalise Bags Do Not Compromise Safety
It is essential to label your little one’s bag, especially at school. However, if your tween walks home after school, or your toddler is often at the park with the nanny with their bag on their back after school, it is not a good idea to have a bag with a name written in large letters for the world to see. Outside school grounds, a child’s name must remain anonymous, as any stranger can pretend to know the child. Personalised bags provide you with the option of choosing an image unique to your child only. That means there is no reason to scribble their name all over the bag, as this is dangerous.
Fun to Design and Easy to Identify
Little minds love to explore, think, and imagine. That is why children enjoy all those cartoons and games on your tablet. Young children – from kindergarten to Grade 8 – are visual and identify with design. They can’t read but can understand an image of a happy fairy, angry dragon, or intergalactic hero. Personalising their bag with their favourite theme design will make them feel proud. It also allows them to identify their bag faster - especially in a pile of 50 others.
