Ah, the start of a new term – although this means that you won’t have to spend every day arranging group swimming trips or ferrying a hoard of excitable children on an impromptu (and expensive!) trip to the latest summer holiday hot spot it does mean the need to purchase that long list of ‘Back to School’ supplies has crept up again. With uniforms and bits and bobs such as pencils & notepads coming with rather a strict policy there isn’t much room to shop stylishly (we say Tiger all the way for stationary by the way!) but a school bag is something that needs a bit more thought. Unlike clothing and shoes, a bag will last the entire school year. It’s the one constant they will proudly wear everyday to school.
Here are just a few of our favourite school bags to help your child stand out from the crowd and get their homework back home in style!

If you can find a cooler brand than Mini Rodini we will be impressed. Established in 2006 by the Swedish illustrator Cassandra Rodin every collection has been a fresh take on kidswear. Inspired by horror movies, vintage clothing and her own childhood Mini Rodini is a humorous, creative and unisex brand much loved by those lucky enough to discover it. Cassandra has often spoken of her Grandfather who was a legendary circus performer – known as the Gypsy Prince Carooli Rodini. It is the beautifully wild and playful spirit of her Grandfather and his life in the circus that inspires Cassandra to this day. There is no doubt that any child would be the cool kid at school rocking up in one of these backpacks.
