10 Backpacks and Lunchboxes for Kids in Elementary School
Back to school shopping includes purchasing new backpacks and lunchboxes for my three kids each year. As they get older their tastes change so we end up changing them out every year. This year my daughter entered fifth grade and she opted for a non-character backpack. My oldest son however still wanted something to match his current obsession. If you have kids in elementary school, here’s 10 options that are sure to be favorites.

Guardians of the Galaxy Backpack
Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is one of the most popular films this summer. Everyone just loves Groot and all the other guardians. This backpack from Disney Store is super fun because it has a fur hood in the top of the backpack. Your child can choose to wear the hood or leave it in the backpack. The Rocket Raccoon Hooded Backpack for kids is available for purchase on Amazon.
If your little one is a wrestling fan, they are going to love these WWE lunch boxes featuring some of the most popular wrestlers including John Cena, Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, and more. WWE offers a variety to choose from, including the double sided lunch box featuring RAW superstars. My nephew is a huge WWE fan, so he was super excited about heading back to school with his new RAW lunchbox. My youngest who’s still at home took one for all his toys. You can purchase WWE Insulated Lunch Boxes on Amazon.
You’re can’t have a WWE lunch box and not include matching backpacks. WWE sent me two sizes of their backpacks for back to school. They come in a larger size for older kids and a smaller size for younger kids that don’t need a lot of space. Both are very durable and sure to please any wrestling fan. The larger backpack held all my nephew’s school supplies and still had room. The straps were long enough for his height and it distributes the weight evenly. These are a great option. You can purchase WWE Backpacks online on Amazon.
Tinksky Girls Sports Backpack
For older girls in elementary school that want to skip the characters this backpack from Tinksky is perfect for school. It’s large enough to hold all their books and supplies and durable to last the whole year. I love all the pockets included on this backpack because they can store so many things in this one backpack. You can purchase the Tinksky Girls Sports Backpack on Amazon.
Land’s End ClassMate® Small Backpack’s
I love the classic backpacks from Land’s End. They remind me of ones I used when I was a child growing up in Trinidad. The personalization gives it an additional touch that goes a long way, and it helps with making sure you child knows which backpack is theirs. They are strong, durable, and made to last a long time.
Personal Creations Just For Me Backpack
We usually shop Personal Creations for books. We’ve given each of our kids personalized story books as Christmas gifts. They are a great way to encourage reading and make nice keepsakes. Everyone we’ve given them to has loved them, so I knew their backpacks would be a hit. The design options are simple and geared towards something they like. You can choose from ballerinas, sports, butterflies and a fire truck. Add your child’s name for an extra personal touch, and they are off to a great year of learning. Check the Personal Creations website for discount codes or coupons prior to ordering online to save on your purchase.
Emoji Girls Backpack Set
I love a good bargain. I noticed this year a few designs with backpacks that also included matching lunchboxes, pencil cases, and a water bottle. We picked up a Paw Patrol design for my six-year-old. These sets are perfect for parents like me who are shopping for multiple kids. The set has several items, so I can save and not have to worry about shopping for those items individually. Anything you don’t need you can hold on to it for the future, or donate to a shelter. You can purchase these sets in stores like Macy’s and J.C. Penny, or online from Amazon or eBay.
Disney Avengers Lunchbox
If you have a young Marvel fan on your hands, they are going to love the collection of lunchboxes from Disney Store. We received one for our back to school guide and I love it. The lunch box has a long handle for easy carrying, it’s also insulated to help keep your child’s lunch cool or warm until it’s time to each lunch. You can also find matching accessories like water bottles or containers to finish the set. You can purchase Disney Store lunch boxes online or in stores or at outlet locations.
Disney Incredible Hulk Backpack
This Incredible Hulk Backpack is sure to make your little one feel like a superhero. The design is amazing. It looks like they’re carrying the Hulk right on their back. The design of the Hulk is made from a firmer material than the rest of the backpack. It’s easy to clean by wiping off with a wet cloth. It matched up perfectly with our Avengers Lunchbox. It’s larger enough to hold books for kids in fifth grade, and still lightweight enough for younger school kids. There are a few compartments for storing books and other school supplies. This backpack could easily be passed on after the school year because it’s so durable. You can purchase the backpack online on Amazon and in Disney Stores or Outlet locations.
Spider-man Backpack & Lunchbox
This Spider-man backpack can be personalized with your child’s name for easy identification. The design is similar to the one like the Hulk. If your child likes Spidey he’ll love this backpack with the matching lunch box that can be easily attached to the bag. This makes for easy carrying of the backpack and lunch box. It’s strong and durable with tons of pockets and compartments for books and other school supplies. You can purchase the Spider-man Backpack & Lunchbox from Disney Store and online from Amazon.
