When I was a kid I looked forward to the start of the school year. Yep I was one of those kids. I wasn’t bored with the holidays or particularly excited about learning. Nope. It was about one thing. Shopping for stationery. Paper nerds get it. The start of the school year is like Christmas all over again for us.
Now, I haven’t been to school in a very, very long time but all the back-to-school nostalgia came flooding back when I got my hands on a few goodies from Budons to review. All I can say is my Mum and Dad would be significantly poorer if these were around when I was a kid!
In my opinion, kid friendly stationery needs to have three things.
1. It needs to be durable.
2. It needs to be colourful.
3. It needs to have longevity (i.e. kids can’t get sick of it after a week).
The Budons range (which is available from Target) ticks all these boxes, particularly longevity, by introducing a collectability factor to the mix. The larger items (notebook, backpack, pencil case etc) can be customised with 26 different clip on characters. The kids in my life love anything cute, collectable and changeable and the ease that they can swap these items makes the range even more appealing.
Budons were kind enough to give me a Back-to-School pack to give away to a lucky PPT reader featuring the items in the image above.
- A customisable notebook
- Scratch ‘n Sniff notebook
- sticky notes
- water bottle
- two cute Budons characters to start your collection
