1. This Harry Potter Formidable Backpack from Cotton On, which could only be improved by being in Ravenclaw blue, aka the superior house.
2. This beautifully illustrated, colour pencil case, which will hold in place all 694 pencils your kid has somehow accumulated over the years.
3. These obscenely cute Kikki K pens, complete with cat toppers, should your kid be missing their furry companion during the day.
4. And this stackable lunch box, because this is the year we stop sending our kids with food stored in single-use plastic.
5. These Adidas Superstar Foundation Shoes, because if you're going to drop money on shoes, your kid better be willing to wear them on the weekend too.
6. This small ice brick, because ham and cheese sandwiches need help surviving the Aussie summer.
7. These dry erase markers, because — well, I'm not sure, but they're on my son's back-to-school supplies list.
8. This SanDisk 32GB Ultra USB 3.0, which in my day would've been a floppy disk and it's making me feel very old.
9. This Smiggle Gleam Novelty Pencil Case, which I kinda want to bring to work, not gonna lie.
10. This dinosaur backpack from Kmart, which your kid will love if they're into dinosaurs — and let's be honest, that's basically every second kid in primary school.
11. Alternatively, there's this unicorn-print backpack, which I can't let my daughter sight, as we've already bought her a bag and she'd instantly reject it in favour of this one.
12. This insulated water bottle, which will avoid nasty build ups in straws and narrow bottle necks.
13. This A5 notebook covered in silicone building blocks, so your kid can learn first hand what "work hard, play hard" means.
14. And finally, this pack of Bic Kids Colour & Erase Magic Felt Pens, which will make school projects much more fun than if they were written with your average marker.
We made it, parents. We made it.
