Best Toddler Backpacks For Daycare And Beyond

Send your little one to preschool with one of these fashionable pint-size backpacks

Nothing makes a little kid feel big like their very own backpack. Send yours off to daycare with a backpack made just for the tiny-sized set. Here are some of our favourites. 

Youth Sprout by Northface

Available in a busy print or two-toned solid, this backpack is sophisticated enough for a teen, but made to fit a kid between the ages of two and five. A velcro chest strap helps keep it in place.

 Little Kid Backpacks by Dante Beatrix NY

Durable and adorable, these little backpacks are also free of PVC, lead and phthalates. We love the all the different "friend" options that your kid will love choosing from—Percival the dino, Svenja the robot and Penelope the octopus are our favourites! Ideal for kids two to five years old.

 Animal Daysack by LittleLife

This ultra-tiny starter backpack is aimed at little ones from six months to three years old. Besides turning your kid into a cute creature, it also fits a snack, sippy cup or toy—made small as so not to overload the youngest of kids. The smart design works whether your tot is crawling or walking.
