We were very excited to be asked to visit the brand spanking new Smiggle store which opened in Liverpool One last week. We are all involved in education in one way or another and so we all have a need (and a love) of stationery.
We have bought Smiggle stationery before - we always find it funky, colourful and cheerful. I still have a blue "toaster" in my office at work that pops up post-it slices of toasts! People in work are always commenting how cool it is. They make great presents as well as being useful for all of our work! Alice, Rosie and Emily were very much looking forward to visiting the new store and finding out what they had to offer.
Smiggle offer pens, pencils, rulers as well as a whole host of products for all of your stationery needs such as lunch boxes, pencil cases and even lip balms and fun notebooks. Our kids, being of school age all use these types of items and the more colourful they are the better!
We spent quite a long time wandering around the store. There is so much to see! Staff were friendly and helpful, assisting Rosie trying out the glitter pens as she doodled.
I loved that they had ready-made gift packs. Items are bundled together with a lower price tag. We chose a rainbow heart lockable notepad with some coloured pens and of course once Rosie had tried out the glitter pens we knew that we would have to buy them.
I would recommend Smiggle to have a look around. It is great for presents and they have some really good bargains at the front of the store. Although it does cost more than I would usually spend on basic stationery, I think the price reflects the value of the products - and the bundes of goodies definitely would make a great Christmas present. Online at the moment they have a 30% discount on selected pencil cases so it is definitely worth a look. I also see that they now have a Christmas range - perfect!
