star wars backpack 1

She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts… actually, this Millennium Falcon backpack can’t be called a hunk of junk. It’s a cool new design from Bioworld featuring the iconic spaceship, and it’s even got the Rebel Alliance symbol on the back.

And it’s not their only new Star Wars backpack! They’ve also got a classy Boba Fett backpack and a Chewbacca messenger style backpack. How many bags is too many for me to own?

Check out Boba Fett and Chewie bags after the break.

Here’s your backward bit of news for the day. When 9-year-old Grayson Bruce told his Mom, Noreen, that he was being bullied for his My Little Pony backpack, she took appropriate action and told the school. The school then took completely inappropriate action and, rather than confronting the bullies, told Grayson that he could no longer bring his backpack to school.

Noreen Bruce understandably took exception to the school’s decision, feeling the show promotes friendship and positive values. They’ve now started a petition and created a facebook page to support Grayson and are using #SupportForGrayson to spread the word about what’s happening at their school. Even conservative radio host Glenn Beck got involved telling Grayson to stick to his guns and not let the kids or the school get him down. So what does the school have to say about the matter?

“An initial step was taken to immediately address a situation that had created a disruption in the classroom. Buncombe County Schools takes bullying very seriously, and we will continue to take steps to resolve this issue.”

Let’s see if they actually do something reasonable, you know, like call out the bullies and let Grayson bring whatever darn backpack he likes to school.

dragon backpack 3

If you spotted someone sporting a backpack like the one pictured above, you’d give them instant respect. It’s one of the most badass bag designs I’ve seen because dragon! Having a dragon on your back is so much worse than a monkey. The wicked leather design is by the Bob Basset workshop. The sad news is that the backpack was made in 2009, and you can’t buy one. You could try to take it Targaryen-style though – with fire and blood.

Check out more angles of the backpack after the break.

embrace plush backpack

Need a pat on the back or an embrace from time to time to lift your spirits? Or do you just want to creep out your friends with a weird backpack? In either case, the Embrace Plush Backpack is for you. I think this is the weirdest backpack I’ve ever seen. It’s not only soft like a stuffed toy, it has arms that can reach out and hug you.

As to why the hands are blue instead of flesh colored, I have no idea. I also don’t see how the arms would actually wrap around you in a hugging fashion. However, it is the perfect base to create a zombie style backpack, so there’s that.

In Minecraft, the Creeper is the player’s worst nightmare. The green monster’s main S.O.P is to ruin all your hard work… by killing you.

But now that bothersome Creeper can be put to good use–by carrying your children’s school supplies!

The above officially licensed Minecraft Creeper Backpack is water-resistant, features three different compartments (along with a special section for pens, pencils and erasers) and it’s made from 100 percent polyester. But I haven’t even gotten to the best part yet: This Creeper won’t try to blow you up!

Isn’t that great?

tmnt backpack 1

Backpacks that are also costumes – now that’s a clever idea. This bag will hold your books, and you can look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle while wearing it! Besides the fact that it looks like a turtle shell, it also comes with two sets of toy weapons and two masks. No word on whether the masks are different colors, but I bet they are. Two turtles for the price of one.

Pre-order now for delivery in December.

cape1

Send your kids back to school as superheroes with these caped backpacks. Each backpack includes a matching eye mask and cape that tucks away when not in use. These are a bit different than other caped backpacks in that they’re not modeled after specific characters. Instead they feature generic superhero designs so your kids can use their imaginations and become whatever superheroes they invent.
