which or what kind of schoolbag is suitable for a lower primary school child? where can i get it? many tx.
I think you should just get the normal kind of harver sack bags.
Those that say good for shoulders and all is good.however it is expensive and very heavy.Even without the books its already so heavy what happens when the books are in?
It will be a burden for the child and with all the weight, do you think it is good for the child's back?
Get those light weight bag any one will do.I m sure your child would like to change his bag every 2 years or so. So any cheap but good quality one is ok.
Just get a light one so that when the child out the books in it will not be so heavy.
If 1 2 invest a good one most of those bags have quite thick padding which can last for quite long...
If not buy a cheap one maybe can use up to 2yrs like what littlehelper say...
Got my son the SPI ...as long as the bag suits his body frame and is able to carry all the load, that is perfectly fine.
This SPI which he has, i find it very durable & easy to clean. It is available in S'pore stores. http://www.ergonomicschoolbags.co.uk/

does the school give out timetable for the child to pack his/ her bag accordingly? or they r required to bring almost everything to school everyday? pri 1 already has music lesson, art lesson, social studies on top of the 3 main subjects...
Yeah, they do have timetable. But dont't worry, the teachers will tell the kids, the books/files that will be kept in school most times. So at least, 1/3 of the load will be taken care of by teachers. The books aren't that thick yet....so i think quite ok lahhh.
I bought Impact for my P3 girl becaue she like the design and SPI bags for the P1 girl.
Both bags can trade in for 20% discount to purchase for another new one.
Impact bags trade in for new one at Marina Square one.
SPI bags can buy from Centre Point and Raffles Place.
I carry for them and feel that it is better than those normal one because it can pull the string tighter and support spinal and back . I feel it more comfortable.
seems like Impact and SPI are the hot favourites.. any other brands which are lightweight n durable?
yes.... i will buy impact for my son too....
For my boys first 2 yrs in pri sch....i bought normal cartoon character sch bags....but when they are in p3...onwards.....i switched to Nike......my boy used it for 2 yrs...n the bag is still in mint condition but i decide to change as it's already 2 yrs.....i ever carry my boys classmate impact bag....n it's damn heavy!!!!Maybe they stuff a lot of things in their bag???Personnally.....any bag will do....depends on your budget....etc...n whether they can take care of the bag....
Try Deuters Ergo bag..
If you want to buy those ergo bags, then must bring the child down to get "fitted". They have "S", "M" & "L" sizes. My 6yo is very petite and most of the ergo bag shoulder straps are too wide.
I bought DR KOng's from Hongkong for my boy. It is similar to SPI and Crosscom but cheaper than them. As my in law goes HK pretty often, so getting it is easier. They have a website that you can look at their various design. It is very lasting too. My boy carried it for 3 yrs and it is still good,except the size is getting a bit small for my boy.
My kids just use cheap no brand bags. Although they dont't last long, can always buy a new one without feeling the pinch. It's great because kids change their taste all the time. If you are buying a school bag to last 5 years, the kid will get bored easily.

Oh last weekend I went to check the ergonomic tables for my daughter in Ergokid in Wheelock Place. They have quite a wide range of premium German ergonomic bags. Overall they were expensive as they come in a set of 5-6 items, although the prices are comparable to European prices. The sales lady showed me their most popular bag, it's interestingly called ergobag, which is available with or without set. Without set, it's more affordable. So I may consider get one. It's very good. I tried the adult version and I was quite impressed that I was carrying 15kg on my back without feeling the strain. Apparently the design won the red dot design prize. But it's still November so I may shop around before I decide.
pull trolley bag, no need carry.
