Another school year is just around the corner and with the arrival of a new September, it’s time to say goodbye to your cash and hello to back to school products for your little ones.
It’s an (unproven) fact that most back to school items go missing into a black hole by the second week of classes, but we have a solution; school supplies and clothes that kids will actually want to hang onto. Even better, they won’t fall apart by second period.
If you have a Star Wars fan, a Disney lover, or a Marvel fanatic in your house, we have the cool and useful back to school products for you. Well, actually for them, but some of the items may ‘accidentally’ end up in your room as well.
Here’s some Disney back-to-school gear that doesn’t look cheap
