Big C was quite excited by what he saw, as a result he literally got attached to it.
wide selection of bags with different designs and functions for different age groups at the store. We picked three designs that are best suited for his height (118cm). Naturally these bags are smaller in size than the standard bags. As Big C prefers his bag to be blue, we took the blue options for the different bags we short listed.

|The proper way to wear a bag|
- While wearing a bag, the top edge of the school bag is to be in line with the shoulder.
- The school bag should not be significantly wider than the shoulders for a proper fit
- The bottom edge of the school bag should rest on the hip bones
- It is always good to adjust the shoulder straps when taking up and removing a bag
- A cushioned , ergonomically shaped bag is good for a child
- The weight of the bag and content ideally be not more than 15% of the child weigh
