Was worried about the quality of this backpack but was very pleased with it when it arrived. I think this is great for children who don't need to carry a load of books. There is a pocket on the side to hold a water bottle and a few zippered compartments inside. There is also another zipped pocket on the other side of bag to hold anything they need to get at without having to rummage through inside. Also they can tell which backpack is theirs since it is one of a kind. Can't wait to give it to my grandson, he is going to love it.
