#ReadItMD13 Theme Week - "Back To School" - A great range of Miffy and Beano Comic merchandise for your new school bag!

Miffy Stationery and school kit. Far too good to keep just for kids! 
We've been checking out a rather awesome range of back to school products featuring book and comic related characters. With Dick Bruna just celebrating his 86th Birthday, we were very happy to see the new range of Miffy products designed for making your children's school bags look ulta-cool and trendy.

Miffy may well be knocking on in years (recently celebrating 60 years in print, 60 years!) but Miffy and her friends are still brilliant designs to adorn a notepad, pens or a fab pencil case.

Miffy Pencil Case. Perfect for all your best pens and pencils
With extra storage for your favourite and most used pens and pencils, and a zipped pouch to keep the rest in, it's a super stylish addition to anyone's school bag (in fact if you're short of one of those too, there's an awesome Miffy backpack or messenger bag available too). The Miffy Pencil Case is priced at £5.99 and the notepad is £3.99.

Miffy "Flower Themed" notepad. For jotting down all those things you always forget when getting back into the school groove. 

The Miffy range of products can be obtained from http://www.miffyshop.co.uk

Of course if you're the mischievous type, Miffy might be a bit too prim and proper for you so how about a certain menace and his Beano chums?

A Dennis the Menace notepad for the discerning catapult-wielder's satchel
Beano merchandise has been around for a while now, featuring the classic comic and some brilliant retro-feeling visuals for this very good quality notepad (which is now my 'story ideas' pad at home). With elastic retainer and handy bookmark so you always know where to scribble, it's nicely made and can be obtained from http://www.bloomsburystore.com for £9.95

All that gadding around is thirsty work, so how about a menace-themed drinks bottle from Foskars?

Glug Glug!
Again, obtainable from http://www.bloomsburystore.com for £5.95 this drinks bottle is one of the few we've tried that doesn't leak (hooray!) and has a good quality rubber seal and screw lid for storing your favourite drinks for sipping throughout the day.

So whether you're a Miffy or Menace fan, we've got you covered!
