Baby Got Packed - All of Your Back-to-(Pre)School Needs Right Here

Published Date: 08/06/19

Back to school season is upon us and even if your little one isn’t in grade school yet, it’s a great time to stock up on essentials. If you do have a child who headed to daycare, going back to preschool, or starting kindergarten, we have you covered from lunch boxes and water bottles to clothes labels and allergy bracelets. Let’s dig in.

Skip Hop
Skip Hop back packs are a great choice for smaller children headed off to preschool or for keeping your toddler’s items together for daycare. They have a variety of adorable animals and you can also get a matching lunch bag, stainless steel straw water bottle, and insulated food jar (it comes with a spork cleverly tucked onto the side).
