Do you remember growing up and all you wanted, all you begged for was a set of Derwent Pencils?? I mean your school popularity status was dictated by whether you had a set at all, had the 12 or 36 pencil set. I was only ever lucky enough to have the 12 set.
But move over Derwents, there’s a new guy in town. Smiggle! Princess looses her mind at the mere sighting of a Smiggle store and don’t even get me started when she received a voucher for her birthday last year from a friend. So when I was asked to review some products, for my own sanity and safety (from my beautiful daughter!), I just had to say yes! And because of this, I became Mum of the year!
The first thing that hit me when I opened the box was the smell!! Oh my gosh, it was devine and straight away I found the culprit in the 24 scented mini gel ink pens, yum! I think I’ll wait until Princess goes to bed and add these to my own stationery collection, hopefully she won’t notice.
The thing I love about Smiggle as a Mum though is that there really is something for every budget! For $5 – $10 (which could be some pocket money that has been saved up), you can grab some cute little rubbers, highlighters or even the cute and fluffy Swirl Rainbow Pen. And if you’re stuck for ideas, you can always grab a voucher and let them decide (just be warned this can end in countless minutes spent browsing, deciding, changing their mind, deciding etc).
But enough about what I think, it’s time to turn this review over to the Princess, who knows her stationery and loves her Smiggle!
“I really liked the Magical Activity Kit the most. I liked it because it had a bit of everything, not just colouring in. It had cute stickers and I loved the scratch pages the most”.
“I like taking photos so I liked the Mini Scrapbook too. It has everything in it, questions and gel pens to write your answers, lots of cute stickers. Both of them would make cool presents for my friends too”.
