Going back to school is an exciting time for many kids. After a long summers break, kids are eager to get back to see their friends, tell everyone about the holidays and the best bit…get their hands on some new kit.

The seemingly simple task presents some challenges of making sure you get a high quality item that’ll see your child through the year while withstanding everyday use.

At The Pen Shop, we care about creating a lasting memory of the joy of writing, so we’ve pulled together our top 5 back to school essentials that’ll have your little one prepped for the year ahead and excited to learn!
