Last year I had the privilege of working with Smiggle, a company that both my girls and I absolutely love, so when I was asked if I would like to review a variety of some of their newer ranges I may have squealed a little and I wasn't expecting the delivery that we received.
When the postman arrived with the products pictured above I couldn't have been more grateful. So when half hour later another even bigger package arrived, I was left in stationery heaven. Smiggle are predominently a stationery store but they stock many other things including bags, lunch boxes and arts and crafts, and all of these goodies are most definitely designed to make you smile!
We were kindly sent a variety of pen, pencils, diaries, notebooks and games. My girls hardly gave me a chance to photograph anything as they were desperate to start making use of it all. What is brilliant about Smiggle is that it appeals to such a wide age range, from kids to adults, boys and girls. There are items to suit all budgets. From party bag fillers and gifts to school supplies and day to day items such as watches and clocks, I think you'd struggle to not find something you want!
Bright colours and quirky characters make Smiggle's products stand out from most and I think because of this they can encourage children who are perhaps reluctant to pick up a pen of pencil to get interested in writing and getting creative.
I'm going to let the photographs do most of the talking as I honestly believe they speak for themselves as to the quality they provide and I will share a list of some of things we received that are available online with the prices at the end of the post.

I think I'd struggle to pick out a favourite of these products, each one is good in their own way. Although I have to say the girls loved the the spy marker pen, they've been writing plenty of secret messages that I'm not allowed to read. Some of the items may seem slightly expensive but I think in this case you get what you pay for which is well made items that will get plenty of use out of them. Whether you are a stationery addict like myself or you are just looking for something a bit different to the norm, with offers running on their products all of the time, Smiggle are definitely worth checking out!
