Back To School With Smiggle - WIN A £50 Bundle

The fresh uniforms are ironed and labelled, the fridge is stocked with lunch box goodies and the new bags are hung up above the shiny shoes. Although selecting all of these new items is fun, getting the stationery and pencil cases is our favourite part of going back to school and we like to seek out the most fun and quirky products available. It makes writing those stories and drawing those pictures a little more exciting doesn't is? 

Smiggle certainly helps with this!






These erasers are seriously funky and were an instant hit with the Mini Mes (and myself). The plastic pot resembles a little lunch box which the food can go inside, the pieces of which can all be separated and rebuilt.  If your child gets a little bored on a wet lunch break they can always play restaurants! Have you ever seen anything like this before? Me neither, and that's partly why I love them so much. They stand out from the crowd but still do a great job of rubbing out those pencil errors when required. If fast food isn't to your taste then you can always opt from roller skates, footballs, macarons or other great sets too.

The 3D dog and robot erasers are a bit bigger in size and can be used as figures for role play games too if you wish. They are more solid but still vibrant in colour with lots of detail. Again there are other characters available too including cats, horses and even turtles to choose from.




These animal print pencils are huge and quite a novelty item due to the size. They certainly won't fit in a standard pencil case, or even some backpacks or book bags for that matter, but being bright and unusual they will encourage writing! And that, as parents, is what we really want.
Each comes with an eraser on the top and a sharpener attached with string. They are kept in the Mini Mes room and will mainly be used for homework - I know they will be keen to complete it each day with these!




I wanted to keep these for myself but Minxy was adamant that she 'needed' them. Boo! They are miniature in size with cute animal faces on the lids, each of which pops on and off with ease. They can be kept together in a small plastic case that they arrive in and they are really handy while shopping and reading in particular. Each pack has 6 pens which come in blue, pink, green, yellow, orange and purple. Tiny in size but certainly bold in colour!




These water bottles hold 600ml and are really great for school as the flip top lids are designed to make leaking unlikely. You shouldn't need to worry about damp bags and soggy books when your child unpacks each day! There are different themes and colours available including safari, pets and bikes. With a love of animals these were spot on for the Mini Mes and being transparent it is easy to see when they need refilling.
They are BPA free, freezer safe and created in a shape that makes them easier for little hands to hold.



We were really impressed with the products and I have already visited the website several times to see what other items I quite like the look of to purchase. They have some great gift solutions and if you are thinking of Christmas already there are plenty of socking fillers too.
