The pack is cool enough on its own, just because of the killer design, but it’s also incredibly practical with a large, 16″ single pocket.

Everything your little Dark Knight needs for the classroom can easily fit inside the pack’s super buff outer shell.

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Shell Backpack

Well, actually, they can only be Michelangelo or Raphael… But those are the best turtles anyway!

The pack itself is rather small, able to fit spiral notebooks well but pretty snug for even a 1″ binder. But it comes with four toy weapons (two nun chucks and two sais) and two face bandannas (orange and red, naturally!).

This is a way cool backpack for TMNT fanatics, even if it is a little impractical for carrying anything more than the bare minimum of classroom supplies.

2. Animated Zombie Backpack

zombie-animated-backpackThis brain-hungry, slow-trudging, wild-eyed zombie backpack isn’t based on any established franchise, but that does nothing to take away from its utterly awesome geekery.

Controlled by your kid with a couple of buttons on the pack’s strap, the zombie’s eyes roll around in opposite circles and the nose lets loose a gross drip of yellow snot. And to top it all off, another button makes the backpack emit horribly fun zombie sounds. What kid wouldn’t love that?!

The backpack runs on 3 AAA batteries (not included) and features an inner area of 13″ x 10.5″ x 3″, which is plenty for a few books and spiral note pads.
