#ThinkPink by shopping the best pink backpacks, according to moms.

Bestie 12" Small Backpack for Girls

We hate to see it: Little grade-schoolers loaded down by a backpack bigger, stronger, and heavier than them. It’s not worth having back problems later in life. Enter the 12-inch Bestie backpack (available in pink as well as a plethora of other rainbow hues). This fun-size backpack holds just enough for a regular school day or even an overnight summer camp. It’s made from water-resistant polyester and contains a bevy of pockets on both the inside and outside. It’s just the right size for a coloring book, crayons, their favorite Lunchables variety pack, you name it. The shoulder straps can be adjusted to fit toddlers, but they’re also long enough for an adult. Says this savvy Amazon mom, “Got it for my 2-year-old that’s in pre-k 2’s class. It fits her like her skip hop ladybug one. Can’t fit a folder in without a bit of scrunching, but still, it’s perfect. Fits lunch, pull-ups, snack, change of clothes and supply cup on the side.”

The backpack itself is made from water-repellent polyester and contains a 13-inch shoulder drop. Fashionable and functional, it has tons of space—in addition to the main compartment (roomy enough for a 13-inch laptop), you’ll find two side pockets and a front utility pocket for the essentials (namely, a scrunchie, some spare change, maybe her favorite Coca Cola Lip Smacker). This Amazon parent weighs in, “I am surprised by the quality of this backpack for the price. It’s holding up well for my 5th grader who always has her bag jam-packed.”

Jansport Pink Mist Backpack

If you remember a time when Jansport backpacks were the coolest thing on the planet (right alongside a pair of OG Reeboks, if memory serves us correctly), it’s probably time to start applying a face serum. Jansport is proven to be a year-over-year trend, and this roomy bookbag—outfitted with a water bottle pocket and three front zipper pockets—can fit everything from school books to athletic gear. This pink pick is perfect for your student athlete or self-proclaimed girly-girl who swears by her Glossier Balm Dotcom. The iconic silhouette has been reinterpreted in oodles of prints, patterns, and colors over the years, but naturally we’re drawn to this pink mist hue. Did we mention that Jansport offers a lifetime warranty—no questions asked? Kids grow up so quickly that it’s a miracle when you find a product that doesn’t have to be replaced with each grade level. This Amazon customer says it best: “Why would you buy anything other than a JanSport?

Does your kid love to stand out amongst the crowd? Then this highlighter-pink backpack from Abshoo is the ideal fashion statement.

Water-resistant and made with breathable, anti-sweat shoulder straps, this backpack is lightweight and ideal for carrying everything your student needs.

Her tennis shoes for gym class, textbooks, a laptop, her lunch, the list goes on. It’s not enough for a backpack to be easy on the eyes—it has to pass the parentals’ approval, too. Says this mom, “My 16-year-old has been using it for the past month at school and it seems to be holding up well. Construction seemed average at first but has held up with his consistent 5 books, 3 notebooks, 2 folders, and multiple supplies that weigh up to 17- 23 lbs.”

Ready for a backpack that’s equipped to go the distance… and then some? This backpack stands tall and strong against all elements.

The pink colorway and athletic design may or may not inspire your kid to run a marathon or join the track and field team. Just in case you need more convincing, here’s what this mom says, “Bought this for my son who is going into the 6th grade. And who is also very hard on backpacks. So far its two months into school and it’s holding up perfect. The material also makes it easy to wipe off any dirt or whatever might get on it.”

Meetbelify Rolling Backpack

You’ll always have Paris. Bring a touch of Europe to your girl’s school day. This City of Light-themed rolling backpack—featuring the Eiffel Tower—comes with weather-resistant material, a laptop compartment, and noiseless wheels (can we get an amen?). There’s also a matching lunch box and pencil case thrown in there for good measure and extra style. For the L.O. who is years beyond unicorn and sequin-covered backpacks (been there, done that), this is just about as sophisticated as it gets. For your little princess who worships Mia Thermopolis and oftentimes pretends to be the Princess of Genovia, we wouldn’t expect anything less. Just FYI: Once she experiences the luxury of having a backpack with wheels, she’ll never want to go back. For convenience’s sake, this Amazon customer says, “I purchased these items for my elementary student because they have a tremendous amount of books that must be brought home to complete homework. This rolling bookbag has been so helpful, so she does not have to tote all those heavy books on her back or shoulders. The accessories (i.e. pencil case and lunch tote) are so cute and compliments the entire look of traveling/learning with style.”
