Late last year I attended the opening of a new stationary store in Birmingham’s Bullring. Smiggle is an Australian phenomenon that has now hit the UK and is developing a cult status amongst children, teenagers and stationary lovers everywhere due to it’s fun products which are updated regularly. Now Smiggle has a new website with a huge range of products which means you can enjoy Smiggle products even if you don’t leave near a Smiggle store.
The Smiggle range has everything a young person needs for school and college, from rucksacks and water bottles, to wallets and every kind of stationary you can imagine. The range changes regularly, every six weeks in fact, and has something to suit all tastes, from bright red Ninja designs, green footballs and the new Woodland collection that is perfect for animal lovers.
Smiggle very kindly sent me a selection of their products for Joe to test drive. He is totally football mad at the moment, living, eating, drinking and sleeping football, so we were very excited to see a football backpack, cute soccer erasers and football hologram stickers amongst the goodies. The backpack is wonderful, large enough to carry a 15inch laptop and with separate pockets for keeping wallets, dinner money etc. There are side pockets that can accommodate a water bottle safely, keeping it away from the other contents of the bag in case of spillages, and the back straps are both adjustable, and padded for extra comfort, these will not be cutting into shoulders or back of your child. This is one of the best quality children’s bags that I have seen, and the vibrant colour and Smiggle tags on the zips just add to the quality feel.
