Preparing for School with Four Peas Bags

We just had our last day of the 2012-2013 school year at the school where I work. When I was a kid, I used to see the summer as practically endless. Long days of playing outside, adventure, and nonstop fun. But as a mom, I know how quickly the summers pass and though I still haven’t packed away all of our school gear, I’m already thinking about school supplies for next year.

When Four Peas agreed to send me items from their lines of backpacks and lunchboxes, I was thrilled to experience their products! When I’m shopping for items that my kids will use, I’m looking for products that are unique, affordable, and durable. Four Peas bags fit the bill perfectly! Here’s what they sent me and how we’re using them.

Miles with Skater Messenger Bag

The Skater Messenger Bag is designed for school kids of all ages! With magnetic closures on the main compartment, side pockets, and a contact information tag, this bag is all you need and more! Inside the bag is a secure zipper pocket, elastic pencil holders, and plenty of room to store books, notebooks, and a set of gym clothes.  A large pocket on the back side of the messenger bag (which will be up against the wearer’s body) is a perfect place to place important items that you might need to pull out quickly at school, such as permission slips, lunch money, or ID tags. The adjustable strap can be large enough to be worn by my husband or small enough for my 5 year old to wear! The bag measures in at 14 W x 12 H x 7 D and retails for $35.99. Additional matching items are available for purchase at!

Miles with Rocker Lunch Bag

Four Peas also has a great line of Lunch Bags! We were sent the Rocker Lunch Bag, which is perfect for any student packing their lunch! This insulated bag features a mesh inner pocket to keep items secure (I like to put the boys’ fork and spoon here) and opens and closes with a strong metal zipper. The bag is PVC and Phthalate-free but insulates to keep hot things hot and cool things cool! The inside of the bag is easy to clean and has a contact information tag so you can make sure it comes home every day! This lunch bag can also be personalized with your child’s name in embroidery for an additional fee. The Rocker Lunch Bag retails for $18.00!

I really love these two bags! The handles and straps are sturdy and the material seems durable and able to withstand the torture that kids put their things through during the school year!

Don’t let the start of the new school year sneak up on you! Start ordering next year’s school supplies now from!
