I didn't really want to put any restrictions on O in picking his bag....until he picked up a Handy Manny bag at Toys R Us the other day....then those feelings changed. It wasn't because it was Handy Manny (well maybe in a bit it was), it was because I knew Owen doesn't like Handy Manny (he used to, then 100% changed his mind, until we were at Toys R Us of course). Owen picked the Handy Manny book bag because it was the very first book bag that was not pink...he then picked up every other bag. He didn't want a specific book bag, he just wanted any book bag!
I talked O into just getting a lunch box (Star Wars - another random) and told him we would look around at book bags to find the right one. We "randomly" received an LL Bean catalog in the mail that same day and I started looking at their book bags. I showed them to Owen and he fell in love with the camo bag (they have a red and a blueish), and he wanted the as close to brown and green camo as possible.
Before I bought the book bag I asked O
The second we realized it was delivered we HAD to open it.....and he was so excited. We had to take it with us to MeeMaw's that day, take pictures to seen to Missy & Papa who were out of town, and take it to Granny's this past weekend. He also has already asked to pack it with his school supplies because he may just be too busy the morning on the first day of school!
I love this bag - and I really love the lifetime guarantee!
