I’m very aware that the first day of school is now looming up at us and that I need to get my finger out if I’m going to get them fully equipped and ready to go. Last year’s school bags have taken a bashing and they all need a new one which, as you can imagine, can get pricey with four of them!

So I’m turning to my old faithful and hunting on eBay (which also means I don’t have to drag them kicking and screaming/moaning and moping around the shops in the sunshine – double bonus!)

Bonus Boy will need a back pack to carry his lunch, PE kit, water bottle and all the other gubbins which he seems to think he needs (sticks in various sizes, nice looking pebbles, a fossil or two, conkers, his current favourite book, a car and the latest collector cards), these backpacks look like they’ll fit the bill

Or he could pick one of these in all their rainbow loveliness…but how would you pick just one?!

I rather miss the novelty character back pack stage and found myself wandering through the world of cartoon loveliness. He would have loved one of these last year, probably SpiderMan.

And not so long ago my Darling Girl would’ve loved this

But now, I think she would love this! (I want one too!)

My big boys want something understated and practical,  I reckon this fits the bill nicely!

Don’t forget that eBay is helping parents to get ready for the back to school rush, while making those final weeks of the summer holidays fun.
