Although back-to-school season is a bittersweet feeling for youngsters—emphasis on bitter—Sprayground is here to put an extra spring in students' steps.
The backpack brand is unleashing its creativity by participating in a popular NYC phenomenon: the immersive experience. The End of the World Party at 5 Times Square (open until Aug 26) is your chance to score colorful, eye-catching gear so your kiddos can head back to class in style. Hallway or runway? We're not quite sure which is which.
This pop-up shop will feature roughly 160 different backpacks from Sprayground's newest collection, some of which are already sold out, so you know this is a fashion opportunity you can't afford to miss. No matter your kids' style preferences, you're bound to find something they can't live without. Digging those fierce shark bites? Pop-art-like lips? Look no further.
Naturally, these events take the shopping experience up a notch thanks to its cool offerings. Where else can you take in sites of a a 10-foot-tall transformer made entirely of luggage? It's museum-worthy (and obviously Instagram-worthy). Let the 7-foot-tall statues of Spraygorund characters help your kiddies discover the perfect backpack choice. Although we missed Shaquille O’ Neal passing out backpacks on Tuesday, keep an eye on the pop-up's happenings to see what other sweet experiences are in store.
So: Who's ready for school now?
