Neon Drawstring Backpacks
Fun for All
This is the second year I purchased these for my scout troop to decorate while we were at a camping trip. The kids had a great time coloring and painting them. Big hit with everyone!

Great Favor bags
I used these as favor bags for my daughter's birthday party, all the kids were wearing them on their backs, after a quick look inside.

Not worth the $$...
I purchased these bags for a Girl Scout event with a troop of 10 year olds. We passed them out at the beginning of the event, and within the first 5 minutes I had two returned to me that were falling apart! The event was about 2 hours and the bags were NOT being heavily used. By the night's end, I had 9 of the 12 bags back in my possession with drawstrings unraveled and/or stitching coming loose. NOT AT ALL WHAT I BARGAINED FOR!!! I called customer service and was given a refund with the suggestion that I had gotten a "bad batch". Don't know if that's the case, but will definitely NOT recommend these or purchase them in the future!!

Awesome Party Favor!
After having way too many plastic tops, candy made in China and other random junk that I will, inevitably, throw away when my kids are at school I determined I would not be the mom that sent home junk after a party. These bags are too cute! I had nine 9 year olds here with a plethora of puffy paint to decorate these bags until their little hearts were content. (P.S. That takes A LOT of paint because 9 year olds like puffy paint...and a lot of it)
Anyway, the bags are cute- small? I guess so- perfect for packing a few books or coloring stuff or whatever for an excursion (like going to the dentist or a restaurant) but I certainly wouldn't plan on packing a load of heavy books in the backpacks. Bottom line- for the price I think they are fabulous and will definitely be useful for kiddos- I'm pretty sure if goes without saying, by price alone, that these are great for elementary kids carting around 'treasures' and not for college kids carrying 5 lb. textbooks.

Good for our event
We used the backpacks for Girl Scouts during a day event to hold smaller items. It is lightweight and would not hold a lot of weight but it worked out well for us. The girls liked the bright colors.

This product needs to have the full measurements included in the description because I also purchased the bags with the measurement of 17 1/2 inches so I thought the 15 inch bags would be just a little smaller than the 17 1/2 inch. Was very disappointed and had to order another bag for my event and had to pay $22 extra postage to get the other bags on time for my event. Would only recommend the bag if measurements were included in the description.

I've bought the large drawstring backpacks before and based on the $5 price difference and the 15 1/2in measurement, I was expecting these to be a little smaller. They were dramatically smaller! Although they are 15 1/2in tall, they are only 9 1/2in across the bottom. The quality of the bag is what I expected (good for the price) and the colors of the bags are vibrant (unlike the large bags). The size however, was a shocker! You just need to know what you're getting!!

not what I expected...
The size would be okay, it is just the opening is not very big. It is hard to even get a sandwich through the opening with out mashing it. It said 15 1/2 inches I was assuming hat meant all the way around not just in length. I have ordered bags from here before and they were just fine.

great camp bag
purchased to have for the children to put their personal belongings in during the day at kid's camp and it worked great - they got to decorate before we left and we put their names and our church name on the them so the leaders always knew at a glance where our group was.
