Many people will tell you that buying a name brand backpack is a great idea because they are made so well they will last for years. A backpack lasting for years may not be a grand attribute. Styles change and as we all know a sprouting young women’s mind may change several times a day. However if your little princess happens to be one of the rare logical types, not buying in to the flavor of the day, there are some nice designer styles to choose from. On the very high end they actually make Prada backpacks. Prada backpacks may make sense for a seven year old if you are a mom that rubs elbows with let’s say Kimora Lee Simmons. For $219.00 your little beauty can rock the latest baby blue gear. On a little more affordable end you can purchase the always reliable and sturdy JanSport. Jansport actually has a lifetime guarantee and you can purchase one, like this Half Pint Lifestyle design for only $19.99.

Encouraging her creativity will help her build self confidence. You can bring her to Michael’s craft center, they have hundreds of options//m/ to help her get ideas. It can start out as simple as choosing metal buttons with favorite band names or catch phrases. Stickers are also an easy fun way to decorate the bag. If she is a true artist at heart you can purchase fabric paint or colorful gems.
