If your kid prefers easy access to his belongings and would rather save the backpacking for camping excursions, these handmade messenger bags from Mee a Bee are a delightful alternative. With plenty of stylish options for boys and girls, each cotton linen bag features an adorable pattern on the outer flap which is printed with non-toxic inks, and a coordinating inner lining. The bags are sized to fit kids ages 3-6 years, but the designer will tailor one to fit your child’s age and height.
