Going Back to School with Smiggle

In a few weeks time, my children will be going back to school. I am a little sad about that as the summer seems to have been syphoned from under my feet. But also pleased because I am a person who loves a bit of routine & structure. However, with the new school term upon us, we are in full swing to get the kids ready for going back to school. We have collaborated with Smiggle to share a few amazing products from their massive range of Back to school goodies. Ranging from backpacks, pencil cases, stationery and so on. 

Back to school

Here in Belfast, we only recently had our own Smiggle store open, and it’s one of those stores that we love popping in too, anytime we’re in the City. Mainly because it’s so colourful & inviting, plus, the products are quite quirky & different too. 

So, to kick start the many amazing products we have to share with you, I’ll start with this Neon Football Boot pencil case. I am all for novelty pencil cases, but the thing that makes this just that little bit cooler {in my opinion} is the shoelaces. RRP £12.50

Back to school

Sure, you have shoelaces on a shoe and to make the item seem more realistic these have been added. That’s grand! However, kids who don’t yet know how to tie their shoelaces can practice on their pencil case. How cool is that!

Keeping with the pencil case theme, how gorgeous is this Now you see me twin zipped pencil case. It’s so shiny and spacious and it means if you like to stay organised, you can have your pens & pencils on one side and your colours in the other. Organised and happy, even during your school day. RRP £8.50

Speaking of pencils, they’re all Annabelle can use to write with when she’s back in Primary school. But when you roll up to school with cookie scented pencils, I think that is something special. RRP £4.50

If there is one part of the school day that my children love, it’s lunchtime. So Annabelle, as soon as she spotted it, loved the Now you see me Double decker lunchbox. I have been a parent for a long, long time and maybe I’ve just been under a rock or something. But I have never seen this style of lunchbox before, but I love it!

Back to school

It comes with a top compartment to fit some snacks in, maybe using some nesting boxes for break time. Then the lower section to store your sandwiches, fruit, yoghurt and maybe a cheeky cookie or something.  It’s spacious enough for what the children need, easy to carry & the design is super cute, too. RRP £17.50

Going Back to school can be daunting. New classroom, new teacher but it’s good to know that you have everything you need to kick start the new school term. Which is why I think this Ultimate Back to School pencil case is a bit of a winner. I remember having something similar to this when I was in school. It was smaller, but the concept is the same – which is having everything in one place. 

Back to school

It has a sharpener, rubber, 2 pencils, a ruler, a multicoloured pen, sticky notes, colouring in pens & pencils. All stored neatly in one case which also fits into your bag, easily. RRP £18

As for keeping notes during school or just having the time to doodle on your lunch break, this Mermaid scale notebook is perfect. It is a little on the chunky side but it has loads of pages, ranging from mermaid tales and scalloped pages. The front cover is also mesmerising to play with. RRP £

Soon after starting Back to school the leaves start to change colour & fall from the trees. The darker mornings arrive and the colder months lay ahead. These are the months that I give my children money for their school meals. I would much prefer them to have a warm meal during school, during the colder months, than at any other time. So being sent this Now you see me wallet, with a cool space theme on it, it’ll keep any dinner money I give them, safe. RRP £8.50

Back to school

It has all the compartments you could ever need in a wallet, as well as a section to write your name and class {or your address} if you were to ever lose it. 

Lastly, what are you going to carry all of this in? That’s right, a backpack and I have never seen a more beautiful backpack, than this Fluffy Junior Meow backpack. And to quote Agnes from Despicable Me, “IT’S SO FLUFFY!”.

This backpack is, in my book, the backpack of dreams. The straps are padded {Kudos for that, Smiggle}. It has 3 zipped compartments as well as having dual water bottle compartments. The inner compartment fits an A4 backpack {to get an idea of the size} and it also has scented ears! It really is beautiful. RRP £36

You can check out the Smiggle Back to School range over on their website – I’d love to know if you have a favourite! We love everything we have been sent for the kids going back to school and yes, this brand is on the expensive side – that’s clear to see. However, everything feels very durable and looks like a great quality product. I think the next school term will put them properly to the test – so I’ll keep you posted on that!

Smiggle has a few Back to school offers on, such as 40% off & mix & match 3 items for £5. So, do check them out if your child is a Smiggle fan!

    Smiggle makes me miss my schools and all the cute things we used to buy, the stationery that was never-ending.

    I would have loved the smiggle ranges when I was a kid as I absolutely love stationary. Going shopping for my new stationary was always one of my favourite things to do in the summer x

    • 20/08/2018 / 12:25 PM

      I know what you mean – I would have loved it if Smiggle was around when I was wee, too. GOing stationary shopping is still one of my favourite things to do, haha.
