Back to School Back Pack Segment- NBC Connecticut

It's the most wonderful time of the year- for parents. It's back to school and what is  the ultimate accessory but the back-pack also known as the book bag, and I had a blast this past weekend discussing it on NBC Connecticut.


No longer considered just an item to throw your books in, book bags are comfortable durable transporters that also are reflections of our personalities, lifestyle and status. They also provide easy to find and keep kids organized as well. I used four brands that covered from the tiniest of tykes all the way up to cool young adults. Take a look at the video here and below is a list.
