The top of the heap (and not cheap! These bpackpacks will set you back around $100 but they come with a lifetime guarantee) has to be the Swedish wunder bag Kanken by Fjällräven. Almost 40 years old, and originally designed to help Swedish school kids with their posture, this adorable, eco-sensitive and oh so practical backpack has captivated generations. Fun fact: “Kanken” means “to carry” in Swedish. Buy in-store or online. Free shipping to Canada on orders over $69.99.

PS: A quick search of the Tsawwassen Mills website came up with 17 stores that sell all manner of kids backpacks, and they’re having a Labour Day back to School Bash where they giveaway $500 every hour! Check it!
