Backpack with school supplies

Most parents will be only too familiar with the extensive list of items that children need for a day at school or kindergarten, from shoes and coats to packed lunch and stationery. As well as having equipment that is practical and durable, it is just as important for kids to be able to express their individual personalities, both in the classroom and on the playground. The right accessories can make going to school a fun experience for children of all ages, and the best school kit combines functionality with a fun and trendy twist. There are many unique and funky takes on traditional school supplies, and we have selected some of our favorites for brightening up the school day. Enjoy!


Packed lunch should be lightweight, easy to carry and full of personality, and just as each child is unique, the same should be applied to their lunchbox. A trendy lunchbox makes yummy snacks and healthy homemade meals fun and appealing to children of all ages, and will really let your little one’s personality shine through. We love these Big Apple Buddies lunch sacks by BUILT, which are not only incredibly cute but also remarkably practical. Moms and dads will love the wipe-clean material and soft buckle handle that can be attached to backpacks, book bags and strollers, not to mention the heat-sealing technology that keeps food fresh. These lunch bags are extremely lightweight, and the variety of designs and colors available allow both girls and boys to pick the one that suits them best.


Practicality and originality are especially important when it comes to schoolbags. As the accessory that goes with your child to and from school, and everywhere else in between, it is crucial to find a bag that they are proud to carry. Ergobag have come up with an extremely innovative take on the traditional backpack, combining the ergonomic design of trekking rucksacks with the essential components of an everyday schoolbag, resulting in optimum comfort and style. Parents will appreciate the extra visibility afforded by the bag’s reflective material, whilst children will love being able to customize their backpack with exchangeable stick-on patches. With a huge variety of designs and ranges available, there is a funky Ergobag for children of all ages and personalities.


Cool stationery not only motivates kids in the classroom, but also helps personalities to shine and friendships to form. The classic pen has come a long way, and with fun and novelty pens like this, it is now easier than ever for your child to pick unique school supplies that express them best. From cute butterfly pencil pouches to cool stamps and erasers, basic school supplies are a thing of the past: stationery is the new way for kids to express their personalities and stand out as individuals.
