  • In addition, the schoolbag should be ergonomically shaped to fit the child’s back.
Visibility

  • Reflectors should be located at the back as well as the front of the backpack to ensure maximum safety from both directions.
  • The reflectors also reflect car headlights, for example, and drivers can see your child better.
Accessories

  • Many manufacturers offer complete sets that include a pencil case and a sports bag in addition to the school bag.
  • School bags for first graders are offered in many different designs . Choose a design that matches the child’s interests.
