Back To School Stationery
Jamie starts back at school today….he moves up to secondary school, but was still happy to take the grubby tired old pencil case he’s had for years, (along with the half chewed pencils and almost run out highlighters!). I snuck a few new things in there all the same.
Abbi on the other hand has been looking forward to a new pencil case with all the trimmings since she broke up in July. We are shopping for them today (Abbi reckons we need a whole day!), while Jamie heads off to school. To get in the mood, here is a selection of some very cool stationery (though some is unlikely to make it into the school bag!)
1. Kastor a pencil munching beaver by Alessi
2. Pencil Sharpener Globe
3. Emoji Erasers
There has got to be an emotion that suits you in this little collection. I want the whole set. There are lots for sale on Amazon.
4. Battery operated Eraser
6. Mechanical Pencils
7. Colouring Pencils
Isnt this a fabulous glue? Apparently its what Italian kids use at school. I Looooooove the retro tin with the little glue brush. This is £3.50 from The Deskstore, and definitely trumps a boring pritt stick!
9. USB Stick
Ok this may not be the most PC ruler to take to school. Its available from (which also stocks plenty of other cool stuff). The ruler definitely isn’t suitable for school, and won’t make the pencil case cut. In fact the kids at my kids school seem to test the “shatterproof” claim on most rulers. We go through about 1 a month, so I buy the cheapest possible ruler from the local stationery shop.
