Back to school is always a stressful time, but it doesn't have to be! Here are some school essentials from Amazon you definitely don't want to miss! All the products are accompanied by the top review from past buyers!
1. Hynes Eagle Printed Kids School Backpack
"Jawesome backpack! My son loves this backpack, it being the one that he rocked for his first year of school. It is comfy and large enough for all of his stuff. He likes that it has a shark!Thoughts out of the box: Well made. Pro’s: Large and comfy...and cool design Con’s: None. Would I purchase again? Yes!"
"These pens are absolutely the best pens I've ever used and I now use no other pens but these. I write a lot of books as a hobby and usually my hand gets tired quickly with ordinary pens because you have to use more force to get them to write. These Profile pens glide across the page and write smoothly every time. Also, you never have to scratch them on something to get them to work - they write the first time, every time. Additionally, there's no cap to use since it's retractable, preventing it from drying out. The price for these was great for a 12 pack since buying them at the store for a pack of 2 is close to $4, so these were a great bargain for price and quality."
3. Washable All-Purpose School Glue Sticks
"I do not know anyone who hasn't used and trusted Elmer's glue. I have used it my whole life and I am a grandma! I had a different brand of glue stick that I picked up at a craft store before, but it dried up before I even wanted to use it. I needed this product to copy on fabric. You just use the glue stick on a sheet of copy paper and cover with the fabric you want to print on making sure it is smooth and fits the sheet of paper exactly. The stick works great and I have never had a problem with the fabric going through the printer. Then just peel the fabric from the sheet of paper. Let that fabric sit back side down until you are sure the glue stick has dried. I use them as personalized quilt labels for my quilts. Thanks Elmers for another great product!"
4. Resettable Word Combo Lock
"I purchased this lock several months ago, but waited to review it, in order to see if it would continue to work under daily use and abuse. Now, having used it and abused it since June, I can state that it performs flawlessly. I use it at the YMCA on a daily basis, and have dropped it on the hard flooring several times. Although nicked and scratched up a bit, there's no loss in performance and nothing has come loose. I love the fact that you can use words to set the combination lock. Words are so much easier to remember than numbers, and if you want to change the word, it's simple to do so. The lock is very sturdy and just as trustworthy as the old fashioned Master locks. Apparently the color choices are sent out randomly, but I was lucky and received the blue one that I wanted. The bottom line is that this is a fantastic lock, and at least for me, it works perfectly. I would highly recommend this to anyone who prefers a word to a number combination."
5. Nail Polish Highlighters
"Cutest highlighters!! They are just as described. My favorite one is the yellow. Brighter than most highlighters out there. I really recommend these!!!"

7. Lap Desk
"Nice for a lap desk. The cushion on the bottom is thick without being too thick. Totally would buy again from this company. My daughter is fifteen and totally loves this desk to sit and watch tv and do homework on this."
8. Stretchable Book Cover
"This is a great variety of book covers, all very bright colors, stretchy, and perfect for my 11 and 13 year old daughters. There have been no complaints over them ripping, or looking stupid. This is great. They both have classes where part of their grade was based on getting (or making) a book cover for one of their books. And of course, if they were unable to, the teacher provided some very basic ones for them to pick. They like these, and I have tucked away the rest of them for next year when they have another class that requires they have a book cover. This is a great deal."
9. Make Your Own Scratch Off Cards
"These are adorable!!! My sons were thrilled and really enjoyed."
10. Polaroid Sitcky Notes
"Five stars. It is pretty decent. I like the design, it was what I'm looking for. Love it, and recommend."
11. Divided Lunch Containers
"Perfect for packing lunches, picnics and food storage. I normally take my lunch in a plastic bag which is far from ideal. This is exactly what I need. It has space for a sandwich or piece of meat along with 2 separate areas for side dishes. It also works great for salads and being able to put my dressing in a separate compartment. I am looking forward to using these to pack my daughter’s school lunches. They are easy to open/close and will keep food residue from getting into her lunch box. It will also save a ton of money on plastic sandwich bags and saran wrap which is also good for the environment. She loves the different colors (especially the pink!). These are BPA free so they are safe for microwaving and dishwasher friendly. They work great for storing food in the freezer and fridge. One of my favorite features is that they are stackable and save a lot of space in my cupboards. These are exactly what I wanted/needed and I’m very happy with them."
12. Sloth Notebook
"I am so glad I ordered this for it is the sweetest composition book! It is of the utmost quality front, back, sides, and inside! I can't even begin to describe was a delight it was to receive this - it is precious. Thank you."
13. Mini School Bag Pen Case
"Love this little bag! It is so cute an a great size! It fits a lot of pens and is perfect for keeping smaller things organized in my glovebox in my car. I personally bought this to keep things in my glove box organized and I love it for that. I keep some feminine hygiene products, pens, notepad, bandaids, flashlight, etc. inside of this pouch in my glove box. I like it so much that I might actually buy another one to keep inside of my backpack. I love this pouch! I think I will be buying another one and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a cute pouch to keep smaller items organized!"

14. Locker Mirror with Light
"Cute little mirror. Perfect fit in a locker. Light isn't super bright but it does the trick. My daughter went to middle school this year and was super excited about decorating her locker. This was a hit!"
15. Mini Dinosaur Erasers
"This was an awesome deal for my grandson's kindergarten teacher who uses them for counting games and prizes. They are bright, cute, and not the kind of erasers that fall apart. My grandson loves them."

"Annoyingly great for a preteen effective."
19. Over the Door Organizer
Get it here!
"Does exactly what I need it to do! I personally hang this on the inside of my coat closet as a catch-all and storage for my kids' schoolwork and to hold mail so I can sort it later. It's sturdy enough to hold a few binders, notebooks, stacks of school papers, and fits your standard business-sized envelope (for those of you who want to hold mail in it like I do)."
20. Wireless Headphones
"Never gave anything a five before! Pros: comfortable on my large head. No headphone has ever covered my ears without hard places or sweaty or too tight. These are good for hours 2. Battery seems to last many hours. Lost track 3. Pairs easily with my moto G 4 phone and also a BT transmitter connected to my Chrome TV dongle. Easily xfer back and forth 4. Clean, rich sound. Nice break from my ear buds.5. Build quality acceptable for this price. Soft earpads and padded cross support. Buttons gave solid response. Ear cups are flat enough to lay head on pillow to watch TV.6. Adjustable enough to find perfect comfort position.7. Good volume and surround and noise rejection."
21. Canvas Lunch Bag
"Great lunch bag. The velcro closure works well (I'm sure to close it when I wash it), it washes really well in the washing machine, and it holds a lot. Very sturdy fabric and handle. My daughter loves it and got lots of compliments on it. I highly recommend this product."

22. Ninja USB Key
"Great item, highly recommend seller AAAAA++++"
23. Magic Flexible Bendy Pencils
"They came without any problem, the shipping was fast, the product was as pictured, and the packaging was good. They bend well, but are still durable. The colors are vibrant as well. They came a bit cold (But it is winter and I was expecting as much). After warming them a bit with my hands they were very flexible."
24. Loose Leaf Paper
"Most people think paper is just paper and nothing is different.I have tried many off-brand college ruled papers and their quality usually contrast with the shade and thickness of the paper.Graphite stays on the paper very well and doesn't smear.It also doesn't rip as easily as most papers and have very clean holes for your binder."
25. Weekly & Monthly Planner
"Excellent planner, especially considering price. I love the large day-by-day layout, and use each day to double as a schedule and a to-do list for that day. Also, pretty design and fun to color :)"
26. Whole Family Planner
"This calendar is perfect for organizing our busy schedule. Our entire family can now keep track of important dates and events throughout the month. You fill in the month, along with the days, and it can be re-used as many times as needed. I've been using it for a while , and it erases perfectly clean every time.It arrived in perfect condition, along with a bucket list and 3 markers. Both the planner and the bucket list have a strong magnet backing that sticks perfectly to our refrigerator without taking up the whole thing. It's a premium quality product and it has a nice clean look to it. The unused date blocks are ideal places to keep notes for next month's appointments, and the squares are large enough to easily write in a couple appointments a day without squeezing the words together. I love having the convenience of the bucket list right on my fridge to write trips or stuff we want to do so we can save up for them.. The company has excellent customer service, and they thoughtfully follow up to make sure that you're happy with the product, and send directions on how to get the best out of your calendar, like not getting it wet.I confess that I cannot find a single thing to criticize about this wonderful calendar set. My family loves it, and I happily recommend it to anyone."
