I am not sure why I didn’t think about this before, but… we bought ÀiShī a Lion Dance keychain to go on her Elena backpack. It’s glittery and fabulous, and something Chinese that she absolutely loves. We are so pumped about this!
Also, we’ve found that you can sometimes find a cool backpack, pencil pouch, lunchbox, etc. on Amazon if you have something specific your kid wants to look for. We found a stellar TFBoys backpack that we got for her for in the future! Cannot wait to give it to her. 😀
