Back to Preschool

When I was little, I used to think my big brother was the coolest person on the planet. While I sat at home, he got to go to school like a big boy. I used to admire his backpack, his pencils, his crayons….anything related to school. And I would pester him to “play school” with me when he got home. To a toddler, a backpack is an exciting thing– even if they have nothing to carry around.

You can make your pre-school aged tot feel special and grown-up with the stylish backpacks and crayon cases in Oompa’s Back-to-School section. The Mina Backpack by Pooki & Co pictured here is the perfect pre-school or daycare backpack. This soft and fuzzy fleece bag is as huggable as a stuffed animal. It will hold a few small toys, a bag of toddler-sized snacks or a couple of small board books, but your toddler might just use it as a stuffed friend during pre-school or daycare naptime.  If $30.99 strikes you as too steep for a pre-school backpack, the Pooki Backpack by Pooki & Co is just as soft and squishy and a relative bargain at only $16.99.

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
