Back to School with Stuck on You

We were sent a delightful bundle of goodies from Stuck on You to get us ready for the new school year.  It is great having everything personalised and there was lots of appreciative sounds from my two when they laid eyes on everything!  When it comes to personalisation you also have plenty of choice, so you can be sure to find a design that will really appeal to the interests of your child.  Youngest loves the lion on the Circus Boy theme!

The slap watch was my personal favourite.  I would highly recommend them as they fit little wrists perfectly and then can be adjusted as they grow, so will last them a very long time.  Great motivation to learn to tell the time with the incentive of owning a fabulous new watch!  Eldest is much more receptive to getting ready on time, now I can explain and show him on his watch how long he has left.  Am hoping the chaotic morning rush to school might be a thing of the past!  The wrap around to secure it is very clever, especially for a young child who might not be able to manage a watch buckle.  Much easier and a lot less fiddly!  Priced at £24.99 I do think these are a worthwhile purchase and would make an ideal gift.


The drink bottles have already saved me heaps of money.  I have been taking the boys to the local leisure centre three times a week lately and buying Ribena cartons for them at 70p each, I am now saving £4.20 a week taking their new bottles.  I would normally be begged to buy from the vending machine when they are thirsty, but even when their friends are having from there just me saying you have your lovely bottles with you has been enough to stop that expensive habit!  They cost £15.99 so would soon pay for themselves.  They are exceptionally strong, being made from stainless steel so no danger of breaking them if your child drops them (your more likely to hurt your foot than the bottle!).  Reassuringly BPA free, which is a huge plus point!



The hairbrush is a little expensive at £16.99 but if you have a reluctant groomer with hair very much in need of taming, having their name and a sweet picture might be just what coaxes them to let you brush!  I know youngest keeps reaching for his anyway and doing his best to keep his hair tidy anyway.  My mum is pleased to see he is taking better care of himself, as although he loves Lions we do not want his hair resembling a lion’s mane!  But this is a good quality product and a nice addition to our home.


The Backpacks my boys were sent went down a treat, they hold plenty and no danger of ending up in lost property with their names on it.  They cost £29.99 and are available in Navy, Pink or Red.  The backpacks fit comfortably on your child and the straps can be adjusted.  The best part is all the separate sections to zip up so they can easily find whatever they need without having to tip out ALL the contents from one over crowded main section!  Eldest has a cheaper bag at the moment but it does not have five sections to store school items and an area to store his drink bottle.  So I think it is worthwhile investing in a slightly more expensive bag to make sure your child is comfortable and happy on their first day (and the fact they can have their name on and a design of their choosing makes it even more special!!!).


Thanks to Stuck on You we should now arrive to school on time, looking smart and prepared for the day ahead (with everything needed stowed safely and neatly in their wonderful new bags!).  Both my boys cannot wait for their first day back to show of their new items.

Make sure you check out their website now and order in time for school, they have some great name labels very original and likeable to children.

I am offering one lucky winner the chance to get a little more prepared by winning a back pack and a drinks bottle personalised to your child’s liking!  This price is worth £45.98, which is very generous of Stuck on You (thank you!).  So fill out the rafflecopter below by the 14th of August to have a chance of scooping up this marvellous prize.

  31. School bags and their contents are so important to children they are part of their identity in school. They don't have to be expensive, but do need to be personal and fit everything needed. When I have a new class I like to do an ice breaker about their school bags. Some children feel left out without a new one for the start of the session. I tell them these bags are the experienced soldiers ready to train the new bag recruits when we are busy working in class. I think choosing and talking about a new school bag is a good opportunity to talk to my own child about anything that might be worrying them about the new term. I would love to win as a 'won' bag would be a whole new talking point. . .

  137. Love the back packs and love the fact they can be personalised with a design. Word of warning though, I wouldn't want my child walking around with a bag with their name clearly visible because someone could approach them and speak to them using their name which might make them less cautious than they normally would be.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Looks brilliant I could do with a drinks bottle for work!
