Recently we received an invitation to attend the release of the latest range of stationery products from Smiggle at their Manchester Arndale store. Smiggle (where smile meets a giggle) are a brand which first began in 2003 and has quickly taken the world of stationery by storm.
We have come across their vibrant and innovative products before and I knew that Meg would absolutely adore the new range. I wasn't wrong!
On arrival, the staff were positively brimming with excitement and encouraged Meg to interact with everything. Scented erasers, fluffy pencil cases and pretty much everything in between; the store is an assault on the senses, but in a good way! Meg dove straight in, commenting on the new products before heading to the back and the row of pink; her eyes twinkling.
The new product range is inspired by all things Australian and predominantly features two new Aussie pals; a squirrel and a koala. The range features items such as pencil cases, wrist slapbands, keyrings and notebooks. The Aussie scented erasers have gone down a real treat here, the kids both love the fact that baby Joeys can be removed from the tummies of the kangaroos to form their own tiny erasers; a sweet and clever touch!
Although Meg was definitely drawn in by the pink items, there was plenty for boys too. We got to see the unveiling of a brand new product range which is being launched the summer as well; the camo range is aimed at both lovers of pink and blue and is another fab stationery range.
We had a really enjoyable morning exploring the products on sale at Smiggle; meeting lovely blogger friends, trying some sweet treats and getting involved with the activities in store as well.
Thank you to Smiggle for hosting such a fab event and for inviting us along. I can see we will be returning before the start of the new school term to stock up on exciting stationery!
