My daughter is entering the second grade and loves unique things. I saw this and knew that she would love it. And I was right. She wore it around the house for at least an hour! It is really well made and I expect it to last possibly to next year. It is very roomy but not too big for a seven year old to handle. I saw it on another site for more money and a ship date that would have it to us after school started. Zappos, of course, had it to us the very next day! I love Zappos!

I purchased the Spiketus Rex backpack for my son in an earlier version back in 2010. This one may not be identical, but I don't think MadPax has changed very much on the design. Besides the cool look (son loves it) that seems to frequently prompt people to ask where we got it - the number one thing I can speak quite happily about is the quality. Amazing!! He's used this backpack exclusively from Grades 1 through 4. And finally at the end of the FOURTH year of hard use, a seam around the main zipper gave out. I've never seen a kids backpack last that long. Kudos on the quality product MadPax - I'm back to get another one. :)

My 7 year old son loves this pack. He says it looks like Minecraft blocks. He only used it about 2 weeks for summer school so far. Seems able to take normal kid abuse. My son is rough with zippers and these seem to be holding out very well (no signs of wear or damage yet but it has only been a couple weeks). The outer cloth is amazingly durable too. My son drags the pack on the concrete benches at school (but not on the ground) and the cloth is a little dirty but no wear marks. We'll see how it holds out during the school year.

My son had a MadPax half pack backpack that he used in kindergarten. It held up very well. People always asked us where we got the backpack from. Now that he is going into second grade I decided to get him the full pack. He likes that it has the chest strap and he says the blocks remind him of his favorite game Minecraft. Even though it is considerably bigger than the half pack, it is still lightweight.

Really big, bulky and heavy. Did not hold up for even one year. Difficult to get school books into and out of.

Bought this for my 7th Grade boy this school year. He is very into Minecraft and this fit the style for him. He loves it, and says his friends are all jealous. Plenty of room in it for all of his homework, plus a lunch sack and sweatshirt. Seems ruggedly built, with heavy duty zippers. Would purchase again. Always LOVE Zappos ease of use, shipping, and customer service! Long-time shopper!

A great bag - very sturdy, well made and fun. My 4th grader loves it and gets a lot of compliments on it. Though I will say that even without books, the backpack itself is a bit heavy, so maybe not suitable for younger kids. Kind of wish it had a front pocket. The side ones don't have gussets, so you can't fit much in those, leaving you with really the only option of throwing everything into the main compartment, but I haven't found it to be too big of an issue.

I love this backpack! I bought it for my son because it was the closest thing I could find to a Minecraft backpack. He remains unconvinced, but I think it's great. I told him I wanted it when he was done. I'm not the only one who thinks it's cool. My husband came home after picking up our son from his after care and told me all the after care teachers were asking where we got the backpack. It's a little expensive, more than I would typically pay for my elementary child's backpack. It appears pretty durable, though, and I figure it will outlast my son. I have no doubt it will become my backpack in a year or two.

I bought this for my sixth grader in green, I was considering the spike ones but I thought he would get a little to much attention on that one but the block bags are perfect. The quality is excellent, sturdy, well made will have no problem lasting all year getting thrown around. Cushy straps so it won't break or dig in his arms. I am in school also and this bag blew away the designer one I bought for much more. I wish I was younger I would rock this bag in a second. Zappos is crazy good, on my step the next day. Middle schoolers will definitely need the full pack, the half pack is for little ones.
