Buying Guide to Select the Best Sling Backpacks

The sling backpack is an article intended to accompany your little one in his daily life. For this reason, his choice is not to be taken lightly.

In the first years of the child’s life, he will become a useful ally where to put his snack, his games and other objects. Below, we explain what the most important aspects to consider are.

How Many Types of Sling Backpack Are There?

There are different types of sling backpack, depending on the way they are carried. Let’s see the most common categories. There are traditional shoulder backpacks, which have a preferably padded back and shoulder straps, and shoulder bags.

Within the first type, we meet backpacks with wheels, also called “trolley”. These models are practically the same as the previous ones, but “mobile”. These models have the advantage of not burdening the child’s shoulders.

Unfortunately, this is not a convenient option for anyone facing many steps at school or on the street.

Shoulder bags, on the other hand, are trendy among teenagers, but children also like them. We recommend using them only when you don’t have to carry a lot of weight.

Although children may find it difficult to understand how to wear them at first, it seems that they are very comfortable!

What Should the Shoulder Straps and Back of A Sling Backpack Look Like?

Awempre, according to the Association of Pediatrics, the shoulder straps should be comprehensive and padded so that the pressure is better distributed on the child’s shoulders. The backrest must be reinforced. Braces should be adjusted so that the bottom of the backpack is in line with the hips.

For preschoolers, the directions are the same. The arrangement of objects inside the backpack is essential to keep the centre of gravity as close as possible to the body.

It will be necessary to organize the most cumbersome objects near the back, reserving the external pockets for light things, such as a snack. Besides, it is good to remember that inappropriate use of backpacks can cause damage to muscles and joints.

Purchase Criteria

In order to choose the best backpack for children, some factors must be considered. You will need to evaluate aspects such as fantasy, size or extras so that you can identify the most suitable backpack. Below is a list of the most important criteria.

  • Fantasy
  • Dimensions
  • Compartments
  • Materials
  • With or Without Wheels
  • Extra Features


Aesthetics is one of the purchase criteria, par excellence. Depending on the age of the child, different styles and patterns can be chosen. However, it is always possible to opt for the backpack of the favourite cartoon character, such as Paw Patrol, Cars, Mickey, Donald, the Minions or Peppa Pig.

Nowadays superheroes are also very fashionable, including Spiderman, Superman, Batman or Captain America. You can also consider backpacks with the coat of arms of your favourite football team. In the case of younger children, animal-themed backpacks or Disney characters are the most popular.


Dimensions are a fundamental factor in choosing the most suitable model. First, you need to consider the age and height of the child. In the case of preschoolers, we remind you that the height of the backpack should not be more than 35 cm.

It is not advisable to buy a giant backpack, thinking that the child can use it for longer.

Another aspect to consider is that the backpack should not go beyond the life of the child. In practice, the lower part of the backpack must be in line with the hips. Otherwise, it is too large.


In order to distribute the content, the backpack must be organized with suitable compartments. Sometimes it is not enough that it is large, but it must allow us to arrange the different objects of the child. The main compartment must be gigantic.

However, the backpack must have other pockets and spaces that help us find things more easily. For example, a side pocket will be useful for a bottle of water or juice. According to this logic, it should have a smaller pocket for a snack, pencil case or pencils.


Another essential feature is the material quality with which the backpack is produced, on which the durability of this product will depend. The ideal is that it is made of a resistant material, possibly waterproof.

On rainy days, you will be happy to have chosen such a material. In fact, the backpack will not soak even if your little one decides to place it in a puddle!

Some of the materials most commonly used to make children’s backpacks are polyester and polyamide. Since the pack will be in constant contact with the baby’s skin, the materials should be hypoallergenic to avoid allergies or itching.

Special Features

Some backpacks have special features, which make the item more attractive and more practical. For example, some have individual spaces for inserting markers and coloured pencils, and most have adjustable shoulder straps.

Or, some models are sold as a set with a matching case. A feature that seems very useful to us is the addition of side mesh pockets for the water bottle or bottle.

This way, your child won’t have to look for the bottle in the backpack. There are also models with some phosphorescent parts, which glow in the dark.


The use and choice of children’s backpacks must be appropriate for the different stages of children’s growth. It is necessary to evaluate the dimensions, the maximum weight supported, and other aspects such as the materials, in order to guarantee maximum comfort for the child.

In general, a backpack is an object with which the little ones gradually become familiar. In fact, backpacks will accompany them throughout their childhood and adolescence. At each stage, a different model will correspond, with different characteristics.

Backpacks for children are beneficial for carrying all the objects needed in kindergarten and primary schools, such as games, notebooks, pencils or a snack. If you know how to choose it well, the child will feel very happy with his backpack.
