    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 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. [​IMG]

    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 don'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 i think quite ok lahhh.

    i bought this for my elder son at Metro when they'r having 20% sale. Quite worth for me as my son use it for 5 yrs. Only till P6 then he changed his school bag.

    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.

    How about Lego or Crosscoms' bags? They claim to be ergonomic bags, and my girl is eyeing on those bags for next year.

    Try Deuters Ergo bag..

    If u 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 was told that the Lego ones has only 1 main compartment in the bag. Compartments are v impt to me cos I don't want the PE clothes (clean or used!) to be mixed up with the sch books and so on. So I chose an SPI.

    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 gd,except the size is getting a bit small for my boy.

    My kids just use cheap no brand bags. Although they don'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.
