My dd really wants a frozen back pack. She is going into kindergarten. I heard they aren't really good. 

Any advice thanks

In my experience they break easy. If you are ok with needing to replace in a few months then I would get it. If you want one to last all year of talk her into a frozen lunch box.

Nay

They don't hold up as well. And in six months she might not even like Frozen as much as she does now.

The only character backpacks that we've had any luck with came from the Disney Store. The quality is just better. Pottery Barn has super hero and Star Wars backpacks which are also good quality, but that doesn't help you.

I have never had any trouble. My boys loved getting character book bags for school.

We get a backpack with their favorite colors instead because fads come and go.

Frozen is so popular and it is so pricey for something that might not last. But since it is disney maybe I will take a chance. I have some time to figure it out.

They don't hold up as well. But my 3 year old loves his cars backpack. And I'm ok with replacing it a few times.

Nay....I used to buy 2 a year.  And those suckers range from $10-$20.  So, they have LL Bean backpacks.
