But what if your personality is a bit extreme?
Whether you’re shopping for yourself or looking to score some points with your kid, we’ve found five backpacks that will definitely impress.
Bonus: They’re all under $100, so you have extra cash to buy what goes inside…

Last week’s winner
In honor of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, we held a 2-week contest where we asked for you to post the best TMNT toy you could find for $100. We told readers that if we liked their submission the best, we’d buy the toy for them.
It was impossible to pick just one winner from the impressive 43 entries we received, so we didn’t. We picked two. Says Brittany J. Robertson:
I LOVE the Teenage Mutant Ninja turtles! I literally have the Original Movie, (which the cover happens to be my lock screen) as well as a few others, I have the original ninja turtles episodes theme song as my ringtone, I also have a disc which has a bunch of the original episodes on it.
I sadly don’t have any ninja turtle toys or anything like that, so It would be great if I could get this Leonardo Build-a-bear for me to cuddle with! The price all together is $42.14 PLEASE debt.com would you get me this turtletastic toy!
And here’s Wesley Hampton:
My wife and I are huge space fans, and celebrate its exploration in all its forms, we even have a space-themed library/guest room. We are also huge TMNT fans, so these Apollo 11 anniversary figures are the perfect melding of the two for us. I’ve been aware of these for years, but never seemed to have the extra money to buy them for our collection of awesome space things.
They’re out of print, but not extremely rare. They are available through personal Amazon stores and specialty toy sites on occasion, but the best deals I’ve found, for single figures or sets, has been through ebay stores.”
We’re splitting the prize so you can both get what you want. Hope you enjoy and send us photos when you get them. Thanks to all the fans for sharing their awesome finds.
