Last minute Back To School ideas from Smiggle!
Well we’ve survived the ‘back to school’ frenzy, but if you’re anything like me you haven’t got everything yet, even though you were still buying things the day before school went back!
There’s still a few things I need to get, including replacing our old manky drink bottles. I’m sure we will have some other things pop up during that first week back… once the kids are back in routine and realise they need something (there’s always something!).
Smiggle is like a one-stop back to school shop, and to make things even easier I have put together a quick guide which includes a few things you may still need to get (or replace) for the new school year.
School Bags for all ages
Smiggle has bags for all ages, below are some of my favourites.
The Light Up Trolley Backpack is great for school or travel. It’s a backpack that converts into a trolley with light up wheels (awesome!!). The Light Up Trolley Backpack comes in four fun colours/designs and is $84.95 and is a pictured below, top left in black.
A great back for the preschooler, the Teeny Tiny Backpack is nice and small for the little kids. There’s four super cute designs all with padded adjustable shoulder straps dual drink bottle compartments. The Teeny Tiny Backpack is $29.95 and is a pictured below, top right in mid blue.
The Buckle Up Backpack is great for older kids and perfect for school with padded adjustable shoulder straps and a padded laptop (or iPad) compartment. The Buckle Up backpack is $64.95 and is available in three colours (pictured below, bottom left in mid blue and bottom right in purple).

My kids seem to go through an crazy amount of pencil cases during the year, I actually think they ‘lose’ them just to get a new one sometimes. Never fear Smiggle have a massive range of pencil cases from crazy to the practical, there is something for every taste.
The Playful Pencil Case range ($19.95) includes a Soccer Boot, Hot Air Balloon, Rainbow Cake Slice and an Arcade Game. They are heaps of fun and big favourites.
If you are looking for something slightly more practical then the City Hardtop Pencil Case ($29.95) may be for you. It comes in two colours/designs (black and purple) and has an awesome embossed silicone scented front cover.
Another great option is the City Pop Out Fan Pencil Case ($29.95) which actually has a prop up fan!It has a built in sharpener and eraser drawer but the down side is it needs 2 x AAA batteries which are not included.
For those who have heaps of pens and pencils otherwise known as stuff, the Snazzy Go Anywhere Pencil Case is great. It has four deep zip pockets, lots of elastic pen/pencil holders and comes with a carry handle. You can get it in five awesome colours/ designs.
There is also a great range of soft pencil cases like the City 330 Pencil Case ($16.95). These are your everyday rectangular pencil cases which have two zippered compartments and are available in five colours/designs.
Top Row – Playful Pencil cases $19.95: Soccer boot (mid blue) Hot Air Balloon (blue); Middle Row – City Hard Top Pencil Case $19.95 in black, City Pop Out Fan Pencil Case in green $19.95,
Bottom Row – Snazzy Go Anywhere Pencil Case in pink $64.95.
Bags, Bottles and Lunch Box Sets
If you, or your kids like everything matchy-matchy then Smiggle is all over it! When you walk into a Smiggle shop you can easily identify groups of colours and designs which makes it super easy to match everything up. You can see what I mean below where I have created a boys and girls set.
