With the summer holiday being about halfway through, it is time to start thinking of the new school year. I still can’t believe my little girl will be starting junior school in September. Besides needing a new uniform and new shoes, this will be the first time that Moozles will need to bring in her own stationery and backpack/satchel. So last week we visited Smiggle in Richmond to see if they had anything Moozles would like. There turned out to be too many things she liked.
If you’re not familiar with Smiggle, it is an Australian stationery store that is taking over the world. My daughter’s friends all love it. This was only our second visit (the first visit was to buy an initial keyring that all the other girls have on their bookbags). This visit, we got all the school essentials. Moozles picked out the coolest pencil case (in fact it’s my favourite item). You press various buttons and out pops out the tape or scissors or sharpener. And it has a ruler hidden somewhere. Why, oh why, did they not have these when I was young?
Moozles also picked out some colour change pencils as well as some scented pencils. She chose cola, and I have to say they smell yummy. I may sneak one of the pencils for myself. And why can’t the eraser/rubber ring fit on my finger? *sobs* I had so much self-restraint at the shop not to buy myself anything. I am of course now regretting it. Mums need stationery too! Have you been to Smiggle? What is your favourite item?
We were invited to the Smiggle Back to School event and given a voucher (though I spent a lot of my own money) and goody bag for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
