July 2, 2012 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Kids Backpack


Backpacks have taken the world by storm and children and adults alike are lugging them everywhere possible. The big difference comes in because adult bodies have finished growing and are strong enough to carry heavy loads. Too often children stuff their backpacks with schoolbooks and sports equipment that drag them down. What parents need to realize is that backpacks that are regularly overloaded and carried over children’s shoulders pose a health hazard.

Children can suffer from back problems later in life because of too many years of carrying overloaded backpacks that sag off center and cause numbness and tingling in their arms. This is where a kids wheeled backpack comes into its own.

Wheeled backpacks are very similar to normal backpacks, except they have been constructed of far more durable materials and have heavy-duty wheels that can be dragged along. A kids wheeled backpack is the much safer option for children as they won’t become overbalanced and fall and it minimizes potential health problems.

What To Look For In A Wheeled Backpack

Kids wheeled backpacks are not all created equal so look for one that have all the essential qualities needed. Kids are rough and heavy on any equipment so look for a wheeled backpack that is made from strong nylon or polyester that can withstand rough handling. The handle is very important and should be make to fit a child’s smaller hands, be able to fully retract when not in use and be of very strong metal. Look for a kids wheeled backpack that have not only one large compartment, but many pockets and separated compartments so that they can keep their books and equipment neat.

A great idea when you purchase a kids wheeled backpack is to purchase a kids mini backpack at the same time. This will be their special bag to keep their money, house keys, personal stuff and maybe iPods or mobile phones in. this way they keep their personal essentials all in one place. Many older kids today carry a laptop to school and need to be able to carry it around securely.

There are large enough sized kids wheeled backpacks on the market that have a special padded compartment inside the main storage area for carrying equipment such as laptops. The soft padding shields the laptop from any bumps or knocks. The last item to check for when buying a kids wheeled backpack is to ensure that it has a padded grab handle on top to allow it to be lifted into lockers and out of buses or trains.
