20 Trapper Keepers That Will Almost Make You Wish You Were Going Back To School


There is something about getting new school supplies that makes you completely forget how annoying it is to go back to school. You totally ignore the stress of the tests and the pressure from your classmates, because all of your new pens and pencils are so perfect and new.

One of the best things about going back to school was getting yourself all organized to take on a whole new year. The best way to do that? A new Trapper Keeper, obviously! These perfect little treasures helped you keep all your notes and calendars in one place!

Did you ever have one? Do any of these look familiar?

A tiled pattern with dolphins was a good classic choice

Nothing is cooler than a jet plane!

I am not sure what this is supposed to be, but I bet kids loved it!

This looks like the design that would go behind a 90s sitcom intro sequence and I am into it

Lisa Frank is always a good choice

Because look how cute these are? Polar bears and puffins are exactly what you need to make it through the school year!

It you are more interested in real animals you can get one with some koalas on it

But honestly there are more Lisa Frank options than anything else

Not sure what's going on here, but it makes little to no sense and I am okay with it

Some real classics

There are still so many other styles of Trapper Keepers...

The listing for this one calls it "Elephant John Trapper Keeper"

This one is mildly unpleasant to look at with your eyes, but i guess to each their own...

A truly majestic horse

Beach vibe never go out of style

Everything should have a puppy on it, it just makes it so much better

Interesting geometric shapes were VERY prevalent back then

I see what they were going for here, but obviously it did not get executed as they intended...

Put this print on a t-shirt and give it to Zack Morris!

This cat is really intense...

To be completely honest, I really hate this one...
