Smiggle sale: Why these are the only school bags I buy

As a Consumer Editor, there's only one place I'm prepared to spend money when it comes to back-to-school season and that's Smiggle. Why? Firstly, they design stuff that kids adore. If you've got a little one who's hesitant about starting school or just not mad keen on going back after the summer, kitting them out with a backpack that they can't wait to show off is a really good way to get them raring to go when it's time to head for the school gates. 

Secondly, Smiggle's school gear is second-to-none when it comes to quality. They're literally the only school bags I've ever bought for my eight-year-old daughter and every single one I've invested in is still going strong - no rips or tears despite taking a battering over the years, and they still look good as new.

Finally, the Smiggle bundles - backpack, sandwich tub, lunchbox, drinks bottle and pencil case - take all the hassle out of shopping for back-to-school essentials. Pick the design that most appeals to your youngster and you've got all the co-ordinating kit sorted. And if you wait for the sale, you'll get it all for less than the usual price of the backpack alone!

This year, Smiggle sent us a selection of items from their Better Together range - my daughter couldn't open the box fast enough and trying the items out really helped her get in the mood for back-to-school season. I love that everything matches so that she looks smart and organised. Our annual front door photo shoot was a serious vibe.

I particularly love that there's a wallet included in the school bundle in a matching graphic print. It means youngsters can keep some money tucked away safely for those days when there's an unexpected bake sale or book fair - without missing out or scrabbling around to find loose change in their bag.

Smiggle's best-selling Giggle collection is available in a range of all-new prints. The backpack has padded, adjustable straps, 2 zipped compartments and a sleeve for the drink bottle sleeve. There's also a main compartment with double zip and an internal compartment that fits an A4 notebook, plus a carry handle and name label.

Designed to keep snacks cool, the lunchbox is compact and easy to carry and has a wipe-clean lining that is BPA-free and food-grade safe. Also included is a separate sandwich container - no more squashed sarnies!

The drink bottle is also BPA-free and has a flip-top spout that's super easy for kids to use 0 so you don't need to worry about leaks. 

The pencil case (W 22cm x H 7cm x D 5cm) keeps all your stationery sorted in one place so kids have all they need for creative moments.
