I too welcome suggestions on the same. Was thinking of Smiggles but worried that she will be teased for being childish. Her schoolbag was stolen from school previously. We are now cautious about the belongings that we bring to school to ensure that it blends with everyone.

On a separate note, do the kids of today bring iphone to school? She was using my old phone (which can no longer power up) for school so need to understand what will be appropriate going forward.

Thanks for advice.

Smiggles not big and strong enough...bought Deuter at recommendation of a neighbour. For the 'Gogo' range, there is only one size...selling at $69 after discount.

As for mobile phone, I am considering giving him a basic model...for him to call out and send SMS.

My DD chose a mostly black with some pink, glittered Hello Kitty. When I asked if she was sure, she said that's her taste & she doesn't care if others are bothered.

I checked with my 16 year old niece who said that she has friends who like Hello Kitty and Smiggles so the teasing is unlikely.

Usually I get a Adidas/Reebok/Jansport backpack for school.
It's cheaper than deuter (around $35 - $60) and good enough to use for school (:
