If you’re anything like us, you’ll have been keeping yourself busy this summer, only to look at the calendar and realise it’s already half past August!
That means a huge list of school supplies, and not much time left to spend traipsing round WHSmith, trying to find an overpriced pencil case that’s “cool”, but not “the one that everyone else had last term!”
That’s where we come in..
We’ve discovered the ultimate in back-to-school cool… MadPax. These totally unique backpacks are about to hit the UK with the full force of hurricane Bertha; we can guarantee that if you don’t buy one this September, the kids will be clamouring at your wallet and wearing down your patience before Christmas. Kids are always going to want the latest thing, and these bags are the tween equivalent of the latest sought-after iPhone – they’re all going to want one, and they’ll want it now.
Don’t believe us? Check out these Instagram snaps we found. Kids love MadPax!
