Here’s just one more reason to love Target

Target was one of the first major retailers to introduce adaptive clothing and sensory-friendly home items. They also pioneered the way for adaptive Halloween costumes. This year, they’re doing it again, but this time, it is with the one supply every student needs – a backpack!

These adaptive backpacks are expertly designed with multiple mounting options, full-open panels, tube/cord ports, and easy-grip zipper pulls. They’re also made with high-quality fabric to prevent rips, tears, and punctures.

But, here’s the best part – they start at just $19.99! Plus, most of them are the Cat & Jack brand which offers a 1-year guarantee! If your kiddo’s backpack doesn’t last the entire year, simply bring the item and your receipt back to Target and they will refund your money or exchange the item for a new product. How awesome is that?

AND if you’re a Target REDcard holders you can score an additional 5% off!

We also love that Target made sure these adaptive backpacks were stylish – they come in nine fun patterns and totally look like every other kiddo’s backpack.

Each has a main compartment with a laptop sleeve and an organizer pocket as well as multiple openings for tube or cable access. The front pocket on the exterior offers even more storage space, plus the tuck-away backpack straps let you easily mount your pack on a wheelchair. Side pockets help keep essentials organized and close at hand.

They also come with an adorable matching plush attached!

Note that while we did find a few styles in our local store, the sign said they were available online only so we’d advise shopping online for these new backpacks.

We know the new school year is months away, but these adaptive backpacks are already selling fast so make sure to grab your favorite style soon.
