As much as we all love the summer holidays, as parents we also have to think about back to school, and making sure we have everything they need.  Maped Helix has been helping parents and children get back to school for years.

To help make things a little easier for you, I have a list of products to make sure you do not miss anything out.

    I used to love the flexi rulers when I was in school. They were the “cool” thing to have. I also think the froggy pencil sharpener is really cute, I think my little one would love it.
