Bixbee Backpacks


Bixbee makes some of the cutest backpacks, duffles and lunchboxes! The backpacks are specifically designed for kid’s unique measurements. These bright and tough-built bags are backed by a limited lifetime warranty. Tailor-designed in 3 sizes, Bixbee backpacks feature a patented horizontal design to carry weight above waist level, taking some of the pressure off your child’s lower back.

The unique shape allows easy access to books and supplies with laptop/tablet protection in the medium and large sizes. Plus, with Bixbee’s “One Here. One There.” initiative a school bag filled with supplies will be donated to a child in need with every bag purchased. They come in a ton of different fun colors! Find them on Amazonback-school-supplies-kids-ages.

EYN Smart Phone Case


If your tween or teen uses a smartphone, they have to have a case! Trust me on this one. YN cases can fit on most smartphones including the iPhone 4/4S, iPhone 5/5S, iPhone 6 and 6 plus as well as the Samsung Galaxy S4 Android phone. The Eyn cases (which stands for “everything you need”) are 5″ x 2 3/8 x 3/4, and services as an all-in-one storage piece for cash, credit cards, keys, and of course, your smartphone.

EYN has a built-in storage compartment that also serves as protection for your smartphone as well. Also included is a mirror inside, which doubles as a stand to rest your case while watching videos or playing applications with ease. Cases are available in many colors, and each includes a strap to go around your wrist while going out to functions or just going to the gym. Find them hereback-school-supplies-kids-ages.

WAFF Notebooks


How cute are these notebooks? Inspired by the grid of a waffle the WAFF Notebook comes with 2 Clips on the side that can be used to customize the book as well as to keep it closed; you can clip them anywhere on the WAFF cover. They come in tons of colors and different styles, making them perfect for every student from elementary school through high school.  Check them out hereback-school-supplies-kids-ages!

Re-Play dishware

 Re-Play plates, bowls, utensils, and cups are made out of recycled HDPE plastic – basically that means milk jugs! All Re-Play dishware is available in a wide variety of colors and sets. From snack stacks and no spill sippy cups, to divided and flat plates, each product is designed with the 5 tenets of responsibility in mind: sustainability, affordability, functionality, durability and safety. These come in tons of colors and styles, so they’re not just for the littlest ones.  Check them out hereback-school-supplies-kids-ages.

  1. I love all of these products. Love the colors so much. We always buy minimal before the first day. It seems the older kids (middle/high) get their list sometime during the first week…

  2. Those plates & utensils are so neat! I love the colors & knowing they are made from recycled materials make them even more perfect.

  3. We got our back to school shopping done already because I love to shop and every time I would go in the store all those school supplies would just be there waiting for me to buy them lol. But we got backpacks, notebooks, pens, pencils, binders, crayons and outfits. I love the Bixbee backpacks, they’re so cute! and the Waff notebook is really cool and different. I bet the kids would love it!.

  4. Those are some really cool notebooks! My kindergartener doesn’t need any this year. His school supply list was filled with crayons, glue, and pencils.
