Smiggle Review and Giveaway! - Back to School in Style #SLHFeaturedThursdays


Is there anyone alive who does not like a good fossick in a Smiggle store?

As a family, we're wholly addicted to the Smiggle line. We cannot pass a store without a visit. Often it's myself attempting to disguise the greatest excitement, followed closely by the kids. Smiggle is an uber-cool place to visit at any time of the year but with the school term about to commence, it's also a fab place to pick up many of your kids' stationery and back to school needs.

Forget the plain, the boring and the dull practical suggestions on those bland school requirement lists. Smiggle has everything your kids need for school, but with colour, fun and a perpetual interest factor built-in to the mix.

Now that's a combination that's way cooler to shop for and use don't you think?



My kids were suitably, stupidly-crazy for the Smiggle gear that was sent to them recently. I can't blame them. (In part, their fervour is mum-driven and you can read about that here.) It's one of our favourite stores.

Seriously though, I know my kids will look after their stuff in the classroom if it's by this brand. Smiggle impresses them and their peers making it a worthwhile investment, plus Smiggle is fun to shop for when it comes to dragging along the whole family. There's little-whinging when a visit to Smiggle is on the cards. It's a win, win.

Active A4 pencil case $17.95.

Active A4 lined notebook $3.95.

My boys were all-agog over the latest Smiggle Soccer range of gear they were sent. There were pencil cases large and small as well as several matching exercise books, eagerly snapped up by sons of corresponding sizes.

Active 330 Pencil Case (right) $14.95.

Suddenly there was eager chatter amongst the boys about missing school friends, the prospect of new teachers and other random school-life things, hitherto avoided. Smiggle had inspired the first conversation I had heard from my young schoolies, that was actually positive about school-life since the holidays had started.

I swear this stuff is miraculous in so many ways!


Got to love it when your kids are old enough to label their own stuff...especially when there's six of them!
Active A5 lined notebook $2.95.
 
Pretty soon the toddler joined in the fun to share her delight in her new Smiggle offerings with her big brothers. Celeste is very smitten with her Smiggle ice cream gear (called Yums). It's pink, happy and very girly and she is one impressed three year old.
 
Yums 330 pencil case $14.95.

Yums drink bottle 14.95.


Smiggle has everything you need on those long, dull school lists so make an outing for essentially boring stuff fun, by checking out their range in store or at Smiggle online. Smiggle gear not only looks exceptional, but it's strong gear too, and will see your cherubs through a hectic year at school with fun and pride. Smiggle is distinctive and distinguished stuff that's guaranteed to come home each day!

Yums backpack $49.95.

  8. SMIGGLE! I remember Smiggle. My kids were addicted to it, but then grew and left Smiggle behind. I am personally still a Smiggle fan. I love the colour and the newness and the promise of it all. That's just me and stationery in general though.

    ReplyDelete
  9. I adore the Smiggle range. My daughter starts school this year and got a few Smiggle items for Christmas. She also got dress-ups, dolls and all sorts of toys that she'd asked for, but it's the Smiggle items that get oohed and aahed over every single day! We'd love the ice cream pack, please.

  11. I love how Smiggle appeals to everyone young and old! My tween and teenage kids still love Smiggle and I admit to owning the odd Smiggle pencil case and stationary item myself too!

  15. I love Smiggle too. I can't wait until Mr 6 is old enough to have his own stationary at school! I bought one of the Fox backpacks from Smiggle a few years ago and it is still going strong. I love that it has a heap of pockets too so that I can keep things separated. Tegan Churchill

  16. Smiggle is one shop I've walked past and never really gone in to delve but I have no doubt as Esther gets older, she will want me to get some stationary from there. Good luck to all who enter. What a great competition - perfect for back to school.

  41. My daughter would LOVE the ice cream (Yums) pack! I'm like you, stationery mad!! And it has certainly rubbed off onto my little girl. We moved away from friends and family last year so we often post letters and artwork to keep in contact with everyone. Who doesn't love getting something cute in the mail! Much more novel than email. One of her favourites to decorate with are the strawberry scented stick a yums- super cute!

    And he found it really fun,

    Would be something he'd adore,
    Because Smiggle's 'awesome' and 'cool',
    And he'd love getting his books out even more!

  68. We would love the Smiggle Ice Cream pack. Because....ICE CREAM! Of course the kids love all the colours and amazing things that Smiggle has to offer. I love that it gets their creative juices flowing no matter what age. A new notebook and pen for my 12 year old means she's writing a new book. Brightly coloured markers for my 8 year old means he's got those colouring books out again. And a super cute pen or pencil for me, means I actually make a grocery list. :) Tess Howard
