Giveaway! Win a Budons pack

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.

Giveaway time!

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

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below. Simple, right?

I’ll ask my 12 year old niece Amber to choose the answer that she likes the best.
The competition closes at 9PM WST on Saturday February 2nd and is open to international readers.

Good Luck!

***Competition is now closed. Thanks to all who entered!***

    Oh I love this! My little girl would adore ALL of this. I am super proud that I’ve indoctrinated a love of stationery into her at such a young age. 🙂

    I once had some paper from Budons
    which I tragically spilled some wet food on
    so now I have none
    but if this giveaway I won,
    I’d have lots of great items from Budons!

    My school bag is boring and lifeless,
    It’s in desperate need of a change,
    New supplies should do the trick,
    Especially from the Budons range!

    It will be my mum’s birthday on Saturday – Australia Day – but she should not be the only one receiving presents. Well, I hope not anyway. I cannot wait to start back at school. I will be in grade one with Miss Kylie.

  7. Amber Boyce January 22, 2013

    What an awesome giveaway!! Budons make such fun stationery.

    P.S. Amber is a really cool name – lol 🙂

    Cute! Target always carries the coolest stuff

    This pack looks fantastic and the best thing is if I won my son and daughter could both share the items because the customisable notebook is boyish looking and the rest is girlish looking so there wouldn’t be any fights (hopefully!)

    Harmony is a girl of twelve
    who gets picked on by the bullies quite well
    she can make them all jealous
    when she has budons to scratch and smell

  15. Jasmine January 31, 2013
