It's one of the most famous visual signs of Japan, the box-like backpacks that elementary school students wear. They call them randoseru, which comes from a Dutch word, ransel. Distinctive in their leather materials and firm cube shape, the bags are durable and very practical when it comes to carrying packed lunches and textbooks around. Now you can own this symbol of Japan... with some very cute extras! The Barbie Japanese School Satchel Ransel combines a great American kids' brand with this highly Japanese item, and the results are just great.
The pink (of course!) backpack is designed with ribbons and the iconic Barbie logo in the middle. The attention to detail here is as Japanese as you'd expect. There are hearts and diamond-like studs on the exterior, plus Barbie decorate inside, making this a very fancy randoseru that is ideal for fans of either Japanese school satchels or Barbie herself.
