Even though school is winding down, these cool new backpacks from LEGO are too awesome to not spread the word. Not only are they highly functional, they are eco-friendly, too! So if you’ve got a serious brick-o-phile in your household, read on about the latest gear you won’t want to miss.

What It Is

For more than ten years LEGO Bags have partnered with Carry Gear Solutions to make safe, practical bags for kids. Chances are you already have one of their cool storage solutions. New this year, the LEGO Eco backpacks and soft-sided lunch boxes take the love of LEGO and being green to a whole new level. Not only will you find amazing designs (like packs that look like giant bricks) every bag is made from recycled plastic water bottles. Eight for a backpack and four for a lunchbox, and each bag comes with a tag that illustrates the point.

Styles & Styles

There’s one for all tastes: because LEGO lovers come in wide range of ages, there are plenty of styles to chose from. You’ll find NINJAGO and NEXO Knights; clever brick-patterned fabric styles; and—our favorite—the giant LEGO brick pack that has two outside pockets, and plenty of room for all the gear kids tote around all day, along with the coordinating lunch box.

Bells & Whistles

All the bags are well-thought out with kiddos in mind. They feature places to write your kiddo’s name, stash pockets, reflective fabric strips on the padded shoulder straps, and the lining even has its own brick pattern. The bags are big enough to hold everything without being too big for the kids. Backpacks range from $25-$50 and lunch boxes $16-$25.
