Hi,
Looks like it's SPI, Impact or Deuter.

Any reviews for Deuter Smart S series for P1? My girl is about 135cm now. Any place that we can try it on aside to Queensway SC as I am living in Sengkang.

Appreciate reviews. Thanks.

135cm should be tall enough for those German ergo bags. it's those 110-120 petite p1ers that cannot handle the >1kg ergo bags that big-built German kids comfortably can.

As long as u can fit in A4 folder, it's fine.

You can try Deuter at Isetan, Taka sports section, but not all models are available.

Why don't u google? Many bloggers blog about P1 school bags!

Single should have lockers, so no need to lug 3kg home daily.
Climb stairs - then don't get trolley bag though your kid will bug u for it. It's dangerous i feel to lug trolley bag up and down stairs every day.

my dd is petite , she is only 120cm in P1, the ergo covers her back totally .
So I chg to that Frozen kiddy bag to use till term 3, then she carrys ergo bag ( P1 bag can be really heavy when they bring all files back for revision) this girl of mine does not like to leave her things in locker except newspapers for art , pastel color, apron, all the light things in locker, heavy books n files she bring home daily :roll: climbing up n down the big sch bus is like scaling mountain daily :rotflmao:

my daughter is very petite...she likes her brother's deuter go-go but it would cover her completely.
there is one size smaller than the go-go design but don't know if it can hold heavy secondary school books.
