aparently EVERYONE has one in DDs class hmm Ive never heard of them but a google image search brings up some nice results.

Sorted you might think?

Err, no - no where seems to sell them hmm even amazon

Is this the new thing?

DD wants one for Christmas - with foxes on, oh and buttons, apparently shock

I've bought myself one from the Smiggle website, I use it for my crochet hooks and scissors.

We have a smiggle store in our shopping centre, is there a locations list?

TheoriginalLEM Tue 08-Dec-15 17:04:10

oooh, theres a website??

Every girl at the school where I volunteer seems to have one, so I think your DD may be speaking the truth!

Surprised Amazon don't sell them. I thought they sold everything!

There's a smiggle store where I live - try and look for your nearest, or order directly from there.

Oh yes there's a shop in Manchester must check it out

Kids have gone Smiggle mad! Not sure where you are but Lakeside and Bromley have Smiggle shops.

Try Bluewater shopping centre if you are nearby or their website.
My daughter has the foxes pencil case and she loves it!

Smuggle is from Australia where it is wildly popular with children aged to about nine. It came to the uk this year. About twice a year they change the range so that new things come out. They occasionally add another colour (like orange) for a short time.

£14.50???? <faints>

Personally I think it is wildly overpriced, but maybe I am stingy. THe smiggle snakes are quite good and the invisible pen that comes with a light (UV?) that you can use to read the writing is also nice. (It has a normal biro one end too).

If she can wait they do pretty hefty reductions in the sales. The rucksacks are normally about £28, I got DD one for £16 in the mid summer sales.

If you register your email address you get 20% off your first order and I think there are some other offers on, lots of nice bits for xmas presents and stocking fillers. It's not cheap, but they are all mad on it at my dd schools !

TheoriginalLEM Tue 08-Dec-15 17:36:42

it is stationary heaven i tell ye!! i used to have a pencil case like that smile Thanks for the headsup about the 20% going to get some stocking fillers too. That should be Christmas sorted smile

My DD is 2 and loves it - one just opened in our local shopping centre and she can spend ages in there. I think it's tat though...blush

My girls love it too and tbf, if it had been around when I was 7 I would have adored it. Santa has made good use of smiggle this year...

DS has a black car shaped one. Very funky.

We got "smiggled-up" whilst living in Australia....amazed to read this is officially a thing in the UK. Some stuff is fab, chocolate scented pencils and the like. We've got a massive black knobbly pencil case it's pretty cool.

EddieStobbart Tue 08-Dec-15 20:19:08

Oh no, have I messed up? I have some young relatives to buy for this year who I don't normally give presents to. I don't know them that well but I though a pop out pencil case might work for a 12 year old girl so I ordered. Thought it was £££ but job done. She's way to old for it, isn't she?

SewingAndCakes Tue 08-Dec-15 20:23:26

I'd love one and I'm 38 blush

Twistedheartache Tue 08-Dec-15 20:32:58

I'd never heard of it til they opened in our shopping centre - fab stuff but mega pricey.
Got a backpack in the sale for Dd2 for nursery coz it was something a bit different.
Haven't got teens but can imagine them loving it - I would have a couple of years ago.....

TheoriginalLEM Tue 08-Dec-15 20:35:07

Eddie, my DD is 10 and i think stationary is the holy grail to teenage kids and adults alike

EddieStobbart Tue 08-Dec-15 20:41:09

Phew! The kids live in the States and I don't know if they have it there - thought it might be something a bit different.

DD loves Smiggle. She has the advent calendar this year so every day starts with excitement and she has more goodies coming on xmas day. I just buy everything on the website and always get free bits added to my order which is nice smile
