    1. A mini bat backpack to conceal the mysterious potions and spell books you're usually carrying around this time of year.


    Promising review: "I have been eyeing this bag forever, and finally decided to get it for myself! I absolutely love it! I adore the bat design, and that the decor is not flat (i.e. the wings can 'flap'). It came in great packaging, and doesn't need to be puffed put after being stuffed in a box all day. It feels sturdy and strong. This bag has all the space I need for my essentials, and I love finally having a mini backpack that has zippers! I got so tired over the string closed ones I own, and I think this will be much more secure with my belongings. So happy I finally got it." —LovelyZombie
