The Write Backpack
By Lylah M. Alphonse, Globe Staff
With a dry-erase panel that you can write on, you don't have to rely on colorful ribbons or handle wraps to make this bag stand out. Your tween can print her name and destination right on her Graffeeti backpack, doodle to stave off boredom while in transit, collect autographs, or scrawl Keep Out as a warning to pesky younger siblings. Each bag comes with a set of special markers. About $30 at http://www.graffeeti.com/ or call 800-851-1272. [More]

The "write" gear for your trip
Most kids love anything they can personalize; parents love it as long as the writing doesn't wreck the thing. Graffeeti's backpacks and sneakers have built-in dry-erase panels on which kids can scribble to their heart's content -- makes them perfect for travel, too!
