What you need to know

Benson & Marieta will brighten up a young child's walk to school this September

Val Pierce has designed the fun and fantastical Benson and Marieta, two backpacks for children. Benson, in the design of a bumble bee, will be loved by fans ofThe Bee Movie, and Marieta, a vibrant ladybird, will be guaranteed to cheer up a grey Monday morning. These two will make a great start to a collection of back packs; why not adapt the designs to create a spider with long, spindly legs, a stripy caterpillar or even a butterfly?
