School Messenger Bags : For school these days kids need to carry around a lot of books and papers, even laptops and old style school bags don't really fit the bill any more. What more and more children want are messenger bags for school or college. They typically feature a shoulder strap so the bag can be worn across your body, in true messenger bag style, so can be safe and secure around the child. As they are normally large and rectangular in shape they have enough space for magazines, files and school work. They are very trendy and are available in a number of different designs and colours to suit any child.
