Dear parents :)
My boy is entering P1 next year...one of the biggest headaches is to buy a suitable schoolbag for him. Reason being he is ultra skinny...at only 18 kg. Hence, we do not want to get him a heavy bag. I googled and read some blogs, SPI and deuter bags can be very heavy for him. We shortlisted a few brands like Impact, Firefly and the Popkids by Popular bookstore. Any advice on these 3 brands for those who have used them?

For primary school, dd used the PopKids bags. She went through three bags in six years. In P6 though, she had started hankering for a Jansport. Apparently the Popkids was too kiddish and unpopular.

For secondary school, she asked for an Anello and a Jansport; she will alternate between these two. Let's see how long these will last. :xedfingers:

popkids school bags don't last long.
for secondary school, there are more books and they are heavier too. even if there is a locker, chances are she would still need to bring the books home to revise.

You're right.
Would it make sense to buy two sets of textbooks, one to keep in school, and one to revise at home?

no need to buy 2 sets. actually no point keeping textbooks in school, perhaps only workbooks....label ALL.
i spent 30 minutes labelling all her files for different subjects...taught her to file notes according subjects.
realized her science workbook pages are perforated....so again have to staple every unit and write her names or else the pages will go missing.

If you're looking for kids' shoes, backpacks, or stationeries, qoo10 got alot of options! Been buying lots of stuff from there for my kids. Just make sure you get the ones with lots of reviews and with good q-ranking. Lazada also not bad but not much options.
