Back to school with Room To Grow

It’s back to school tomorrow and as uniforms are being dusted off and labelled, and new shoes duly polished and sprayed with one of the multitude of protection sprays we all have lurking under the sink,  our kids may well be more concerned with looking cool and standing out from the crowd.

Children’s bedroom furniture and storage specialists, Room To Grow, have a fabulous selection of products ranging from nursery furniture and beds to bean bags, clocks and even teepees.

They also have a great range of children’s bags – some very cool backpacks from MadPax, who make 3D backpacks and accessories for kids of all ages that are, they say, “two parts funk, a pound of punk and a dash of double dare”.

I don’t know about you but I usually find myself trotting behind the kids carrying an odd selection of books, snacks, bits of Ieuan’s latest superhero costume, Buzz Lightyear (or the toy du jour) and, rather worryingly for the staff in our local NISA, a ray gun. Well, no more!

It’s not too bad on the way to school but you do look a bit strange wandering home with an Iron Man statue and a glitter wand.

Spiketus Rex Multi Backpack (Full Pack) – £55

This one, Spiketus Rex is the original backpack from MadPax and has a bold and multicoloured soft spiky design. The full pack is a traditional sized backpack, perfect for school books and sports and comes in a range of funky colours.

Lightweight and durable, it has two side zip pockets and one inside, a padded laptop sleeve, adjustable straps, a clear ID window and comfort air-mesh back padding.  It’s also easy to clean with a damp cloth and mild soap.

Or how about this one?

Lator-Gator Backpack (Full Pack) – £58

The Lator-Gator backpack has a spiky reptile design and the same features as Spiketus Rex.  It is also available in a range of funky colours.

The packs also come in half pack size, which may be better suited to younger kids.

Spiketus Rex Multi (Half Pack) – £45

The half pack is also ideal for carrying electronics and other essentials.

Are your kids backpack fans or do they prefer an old-fashioned satchel?  Let me know in the comments below.
