My nephew just cannot get enough of the Ben 10 cartoon character. He loves everything Ben 10. So much so, that he would eat any thing green, for it is the Ben 10 color! He has just started his school, and I was looking for a Ben 10 backpack, which I knew, would make him feel happy about going to school.
I've had a look online, and found some of the best Ben 10 themed lunch bags, water bottles, lunch boxes and backpacks at Amazon and eBay. Ultimately, I bought one from Cartoon Network at the Starmark. The backpack is extremely colorful and heavy duty - just what I was looking for. Ben was featured along with Four Arms, Heatblast, Diamondhead and more characters from the popular TV Show, and was packed in a nicely done nylon pack. I really liked the pockets and the compartments that are neatly accentuated all round. It has mesh holders for the water bottles, lunch boxes and a few others compartments that seem to hold in all the school stuffs. The shoulder straps are conveniently padded and scientifically designed for the tender shoulders. With rooms all around and inside, I found the backpack really light weight, neat and attractive.
My nephew is absolutely delighted to get the backpack. Every character is clearly visible with detailed, demonstrative individual characteristics. It is slightly oversized for a four year old though, but it looked enduring enough to be stretched to the next academic year. It is so attractive that even my eight year old niece wanted it for school. So, the next day, I went to the shop again, hoping to buy another similar backpack. But, the shop had already sold out the Ben 10 backpacks!
I tried not to purchase the first bag I saw. Through online research, I had learnt, that there are many different styles on the same Ben 10 theme. So, I wanted to take my time before choosing one. However, I didn’t have any option but to buy the only one I found. Due to the popularity of Ben 10 bags, that was the last one that the store had. So, it’s a good idea to buy early in the season. The kids would hate to see the ‘sold out’ placard.
Coming to price, I found it slightly expensive at 890 INR, which is little above 19 USD. But, the backpack looks really lasting with heavy duty features, and I am positive about its longevity.
Ben 10 cool backpacks, from Cartoon Network, also come in Ben 10, Ben 10: Alien Force, and Ben 10: Race Against Time, and all seem to have the same features and theme. I would definitely look for another one for my niece, and this time online, either from Cartoon Network or Amazon.
