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
I would love this cool critter on my desk, but at £37, he’s unlikely to make it on to my desk, never mind Abbi’s pencil case.
2. Pencil Sharpener Globe
This globe sharpener at £1.34 is a little more pencil case friendly, and may come in handy with that geography test.
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
Abbi was given this fab battery operated rubber fro some friends who visited us this summer. Unfortunately its addictive and encourages mistake making.
These cool highlighters from Muji are only £1.25 each, and have a thick and thin end depending upon what you need to highlight.
6. Mechanical Pencils
I’m a huge fan of mechanical pencils. These ones from Paperchase are bright, and only £2.50 for 10. Bargain!
7. Colouring Pencils
Double the colour for half the price. These double ended pencils are available from The Peas Knees. At £5.99 they even come in a handy tin.
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
La Cie do a range of really tough hard drives and USB sticks. I love this one, that reminds me a bit of an orange grenade. But at £35 its a bit pricey for school homework assignments.
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.
They all look great. Many thanks for sharing it. This will be so useful for me for the holiday gifts.
Sorry for the delay in replying, i took a long break over the festive period. Hope you had a fabulous Christmas and New Year break.
