Depending on what your child’s school schedule is, your child will be heading back to school in a couple weeks (like mine) or a couple months. Regardless of when Back To School is, school supplies and accessories are on every parent’s mind. This year send your kids back to school right with Mead and Five Star. I was supplied with some items from Mead and Five Star to send my kids back to school in style. These items are feature-filled, and great for kids (or teens) of all ages.
It’s no secret that Five Star Backpacks are some of the best backpacks around. They are durable enough to handle young kids, while still being able to stay age appropriate for the older kids as well.
The Five Star Expandable Backpack is by far the coolest backpack I think I’ve ever seen. It has multiple expanding sections that open like luggage to give you extra storage space up to 7″. The main compartment has a zipper that runs down the length of the side so you can easily get what you need from your backpack if it’s hanging in your locker. You can see from the pictures above, I was able to put A LOT in the Expandable Backpack and still have tons of space for anything else that might possibly need to be carried. The way the straps are connected to the front of the backpack help pull the weight upward and relieve some of the load so your backpack won’t feel so heavy. This is going to help my oldest son out a lot. Last year his backpack was so heavy sometimes it was insane.
The Big Mouth Backpack is another great backpack design from Five Star. It has a unique zipper that opens extra wide to make it easier to stuff more in and find what you need quickly. This is perfect for my daughter who will be headed to school for the first time this year. Lots of pockets to hold essentials like pencils, markers, crayons…you name it!
The Five Star Flex Hybrid Notebinder is another great addition to the school supply list this year. It acts like a notebook and works like a binder. The cover folds back and the 3 rings keep your papers securely in place. With coated plastic covers and TechLock® rings, Five Star Flex is durable. There are divided sections of the notebinder that are also capable of holding papers securely where they belong. This is going to help my sons stay organized and on track this school year…no more backpacks that look like they’re spewing paper when opened.
If you have heavy handed children like one of my sons, the Five Star Reinforced Paper is the way to go. It’s double the strength of other brands of paper, and it has reinforcement tape along the edge with unique holes that help resist tearing so notes stay securely in your binder.
Every kid needs folders, and I’m loving the variety of designs available in Mead’s 2 Pocket Folders. Whether you want sophisticated style or just a cute fuzzy baby animal, Mead has got them.
What kid doesn’t go through a half a ton of notebooks during the school year? Mead College Rule Notebooks are fabulous. With a thicker cover they are more durable and won’t get shredded to pieces going in and out of your child’s backpack.
Mead Sports Notebooks are great for any sports lover. My middle son saw me pulling these out of the box and shouted “DIBS!!”. He loved the designs and can’t wait to take them to school.
Every little girl (including mine) is in love with anything that has pretty colors or glitter. Combine the two and little girls go bananas! The Mead All Around Girl Notebooks are the perfect combination of hip colors, fun designs, and of course, GLITTER! My daughter is more excited than ever to go to school, and all because of something as simple as a glittery notebook.
