Bixbee final 1

Disclosure: I received the items pictured above at no cost to facilitate this review. 

 It's hard to believe that the summer is coming to a close and kids are headed back to school very soon! School supplies are lining the shelves as parents, grandparents, and teachers prepare to get children and classrooms ready for the first day of school. I'm one of those parents that others find crazy because I love having my kids home and I'm already looking forward to next summer and their time off school. But as we get ready for that first bell to ring, I want my kids to not only be prepared for school, but to be excited about all the school gear that comes with it! The amazing folks at Bixbee have released some amazing new LED backpacks, and there's no better way to light up a smile and the first day of school, that with a new backpack from Bixbee!

 It didn't take my kids long to be captured by the fun and unique looks of both these Bixbee backpacks. It also didn't take them long before they learned that not only do their backpacks look awesome, but that they light up too! These packs were quickly on their backs as they flew around the room showing them off to their other siblings! My kids don't usually get so excited about school supplies, and I'm thrilled Bixbee gave them something to cheer about!

The battery pack which holds the batteries to light the LED wings includes a button which gives your child 4 different light settings including a constant light, 2 different speeds of flashing lights and a setting without the light. Both of my kids loved playing with the lights and especially loved flying around the room at night. The only change I'd make is that to turn the lights off you do have to click through the settings to turn the lights off, and knowing my children, they would totally forget to turn off the light once they got to their classroom. I would love if after a few minutes the lights would turn off on their own. However, this battery pack is able to be unclipped and taken out, which we may do for school (it also gives more room to pack more suplies, but without a doubt, both of my kids will be reaching for these backpack when they head to their friends and families house and will waste no time in showing off their bright lights!

Without a doubt, my favorite feature of these packs is that rather than carrying all of their supplies vertically, the horizontal design makes books easier to carry, putting less stress on the shoulder of my little ones. There have been times where I picked my daughter up from school and I couldn't believe how much she was carrying! I'm so glad that Bixbee took the time to assist in making books easier to carry. The comfortable mesh padding in the back keeps back from getting sweaty during the warmer months and adds an extra barrier between pointy binders and sensitive backs. There's also no doubt my kids will have some unique backpacks that let them show off just how and special they are and I love that Bixbee gives them the opportunity to shine in confidence of being just who they are!
