Normally “Back to school” shopping excites me! Probably more then I should admit. Quite literally Me in a stationary aisle is like my Little’s in Hamley’s toy store… The same level of excitement!
But this Summer? I can think of nothing worse then being pregnant in the Dubai Sauna and pacing up and down shops with the Little’s arguing about which drink bottle is best and which character they want on their snack boxes. You know usual Mum to Little fights. This is where Mr O would say “Pick your battle’s” and he would be right – lets not tell him though!
So as you can imagine when an exciting new business in Dubai Kidoré contacted me and explained their concept, I instantly felt relieved.
They have come up with a ‘Too cool for school value pack’ which not only helps lazy mama’s like me but also helps any mama’s that are still away for the Summer. I can imagine the panic in shopping malls when everyone returns to Dubai late August, early September. You can order your back to school essentials and just give the date that you are home and the package will be delivered on your chosen date directly to your door!
See so simple, even this Mama with baby brain knows what to do!
The idea is you go online with your Little and let them pick their favourite character. Everything is matching (great for my OCD) and a description is given so you know exactly what you are ordering.
We went for the ‘Trolls Value Pack’ which comes with…
- Water bottle
- Lunch box
- Lunch bag
- Pencil case
- Trolley bag
All the items fit directly into the bag leaving room for their hat, cardigan (thinking of winter), and books so at least you know it is a decent size bag.
Once we clicked on these Littlered wanted to look at what stationary they had. All our favourite brands – which also had value bundles from Crayola to geometry sets and then to a environmental brand called Tree Wise.
We opted for the Crayola pack for Aoibhie and Littlered decided to do her bit for the environment and went for the Recycled packs. She loved the Plantable pencils which are Made from 100% recycled newspaper. These pencils can be planted, once they are to short to write, to grow tomato, chilly, basil, fenugreek and coriander. Seriously! How cool is that?
Disclaimer: We wont lie – We had to google Fenugreek!
With all the exciting items on offer, Is there any wonder this brand has been picked for ‘The Mother, Baby & Child” Awards? Such an easy go to for Parents and quick and easy delivery also.
Either way we are BIG fans and this Mama is super thankful to be ready for school!
Love, Helly xx
