Cool School Supplies

Stuff kids will want off their school supply list




Elementary school supply idea

No surprise that Minions backpacks and lunch boxes are flying off shelves. Of the numerous designs featuring the little yellow movie stars, only the 16" nylon version from Target comes with a speak-to-me function that plays Despicable Me sound bites (above; $14.99).

Middle school supply idea

Part of Staples’ Designed by Students product line, the Big Props Pencil Case was conceived by middle schoolers for ultimate classroom practicality. Its foldout design holds multiple writing instruments and props up phones, books and mini tablets ($7.99).

High school supply idea

Another Designed by Students winner, Staples’ Floating Locker Shelves use principles of geometry to make more room in 12" lockers. The shelves, in three reversible color combos, form triangular compartments that help books, lunch boxes and coats fit. ($12.99)

College school supply idea

A thoughtful gift for the university-bound, Beyond Bookmarks’ college care packages bundle dorm musts like a door-sized dry erase board, a flash drive and a stress ball in with plenty of class-supply essentials. ($19.97 & up)
