September 1, 2014 in Kids
Here in Scotland the schools have been back for a couple of weeks, but for Newcastle-based Liz and the kids school starts this week. Sainsbury’s were kind enough to send over some of their back to school goodies and it’s fair to say that Jonny & Sophie loved them!
We love Sainsbury’s clothing, their Tu range features quite heavily in the kids’ wardrobes. The quality is great and the designs so cute. However we haven’t really tried any of their stationery or bags. I was impressed. Good quality, fab designs (which were a hit with the kids) and at a reasonable price. In a world where there is so much pressure for kids to have new stuff for school every year, you want to get the most from your money and I’d say these items from Sainsbury’s achieve that. The notebook is perhaps on the pricier side for younger kids but older kids would get good use from it.
Sophie’s favourite colour is pink. She loves it. So, naturally, she loved the cute bundle she was sent.
The Butterfly Notebook was definitely a hit. She couldn’t wait to get drawing in it so ripped open the stationery set and got going. I was pleased to see that a sharpener was included in both of the stationery sets, and a fairly decent one at that. Don’t you just hate when you get unsharpened pencils and have to search the house for a sharpener?
As for the bag? I love the inclusion of the drinks bottle, and the bag is a good size. Sophie? Well I think her face says it all..
Jonny is looking forward to going back to school, and was delighted with his Back To School goodies.
The pencil case was a definite hit (with both kids), and the stationery set was promptly whipped out of the packaging and put to use.
As for the lunch bag, Jonny is a Spiderman fan so this will be well loved.
Thank you to Sainsbury’s for sending over these goodies. They were definitely a hit!
