What you'll see in school hallways this fall

Newsday Kids editor Valerie Kellogg shows News 12's Elisa DiStefano what you will be seeing in school hallways this fall. News 12 video. (News 12)

This year, backpacks turn into superhero capes, come with interchangable patches and get a runny nose. School supplies get a twist, with everything from jewelry for pencils to pencils you can play hockey with. Kids will wear mismatched sneakers and Rainbow Looms bracelets. And technology will not only be functional but fun -- have you seen the microscope you can capture video with on your computer?

These are just some of the back-to-school products kids will be showing off this fall, as Newsday kids editor Valerie Kellogg and Newsday style writer Anne Bratskier recently demonstrated on News 12 Long Island. Here's a link to the clips with News 12's Elisa DiStefano, and make sure to go to exploreli.com/backtoschool to see even more stuff for the new school year.
