Back to School Images featuring Bixbee backpack, all images are property of Frosted Events.
One of the coolest things I discovered at Blogger Bash this year was a line of backpacks, lunch bags and duffels from a company called Bixbee. The trendy designs caught my eye, sparkly backpacks with fairy wings and fun animal faces. When I stopped to ask about them I learned that these bags have even more cool details.
The “Flyers” line features a butterfly design and space flyer backpack, and they light up! Each has a battery pack to control the led lights built into the wings. You can change the settings from full on, to blinking or rapid blinking. I was so in love with the Space Racer backpack and raved over how my son would freak out over it that the Bixbee team kindly gave me one to take home.
As soon as I pulled the bag out Brady flipped! He thought it was just the coolest thing ever and immediately strapped it on and started “flying” around the house, pretending he was a rocket ship . He even slept with the bag by his bed the first night.
The Space Racer back pack has adjustable straps and is lightweight but very well made. I was surprised by how well made all of the Bixbee gear from the collections I saw at Blogger Bash were. They truly seemed to be very durable and well sewn pieces that would last the school year or longer.
The main compartment is just large enough to hold a book and a sweater and has two interior pockets for smaller things. On the outside there is a smaller pocket with a velcro closure. The small control box for the led lights requires two batteries and is hidden inside a pocket as well.
We get so many compliments on this bag, people stop me at preschool and at the park to ask where I got it from. You can find it at several retailers and online at bixbee.com or shop the links below:
