Well, 2017’s humid, languid, and especially hot summer is finally drawing to a close. As the nighttime temperatures start to feel more “autumn-y,” is your child getting the back to school sads? Well, a really cute new schoolbag might be the ideal retail therapy needed to get your kid in the right mood to hit the books. Check out these funny and downright outrageous bags available on your favorite Chinese retail sites.
Kitty Bag (RMB 69)
In a country full to the brim of cute kitty knapsacks, we find this one to be the cutest of all. Maybe it’s the simple line drawing making up it’s front paws, or it’s nonplussed expression, or it’s tiny, afterthought of a tail. It’s actually a three part combo move. A total cuteness knockout.
Forlorn Hippos (RMB 132)
SUPERLOVER makes a great deal of hilarious back to school book bags, but we were especially charmed by this forlorn hippo. The front zippered pouch doubles as his mouth. Luckily for us, his favorite food is pencil cases. Check out their shop on Tmall.
Cool Kid Gear From Yizi (RMB 95)
“Tasteful” isn’t a word we frequently use for fast food motifs, but this bag from Yizi is somehow just that. Maybe it’s the restrained burger and fries combo on a black background? Yizi also offers the same print as a button down shirt (RMB 119), for those who dig that “matchy matchy” just-stepped-out-of-a-Tumblr-blog look.
Popcorn Bookbag (RMB 249)
Popcorn! Need we say more? Bromen makes a whole line of popcorn themed accessories with a strong pop art feel and look. How about a popcorn purse? Or clutch? The bleary eyed horse mascot brings the ridiculous level up a thousand percent.
Bag Within Bags (RMB 78)
For those storage obsessed kids, this “bags on bags” backpack is pretty appropriate. Perfect to color coordinate every possible object you own, especially when coupled with a label maker. Otherwise you’ll be constantly asking: “is my eraser in the pink, grey or brown pouch?”
