A few weeks ago an email invitation from Smiggle arrived in my inbox, for those of you who have never heard of Smiggle they are an Australian stationery brand who sell original, fun, colourful and affordable products. Smiggle (where a smile meets a giggle) opened it’s first UK store in 2014 and I was so excited to be invited to their Manchester Arndale branch to see the new G’day UK collection.
Both Daisy and I are stationery addicts, we regularly have little journalling and craft sessions together where the washi tape, coloured pens and stickers all come out, I’m always looking for new products that will spark her creativity and be lots of fun at the same time so I knew we would love Smiggle.
We arrived at the store to be greeted by the friendly team who work at Smiggle, you can tell they are passionate about their products as they are all super knowledgeable about the ranges. The G’day UK display at the front of the store entices you in with fun Australian themed stationery it really is a delight for the senses with colour, textures and even scents to enjoy.
Daisy’s favourite G’day UK product is this ausie scented eraser tub with these delightful kangaroo and koala scented puzzle erasers inside.
My favourite product is this fluffy cuteness, it’s the ausie kangaroo & joey journal set I’m not sure how I resisted temptation and left it in the store, it’s definitely going on my wishlist.
If you were a fan of scented erasers when you were a kid like me then Smiggle is the perfect place to re-live your childhood, I was in awe at this shelf full of amazing scented stationery.
Daisy had so much fun looking round the store, sniffing all the scented products and trying out the range of fun toys and gadgets, she enjoyed a cupcake and coloured in a boomerang getting into the ausie spirit.
As a self confessed bargain hunter I was delighted to find a huge sale section, the products are already affordable so to find a sale section was a huge bonus.
We were even treated to an exclusive sneak peak of a brand new range of back to school collection called Camo which will available in stores at the end of July.
We left the store with a gorgeous goodie bag and I also bought some things for Daisy, she chose the scented pencils and the duo spy pen that she hasn’t put down since we got home I think every kid should own one they are awesome.
We are so lucky that a Smiggle store has recently opened in our local town centre, Daisy and I will definitely be regular visitors.
If you are passing a store don’t forget to pop in and enter this competition.
Thanks Smiggle for inviting us to your wonderful Manchester Arndale store we had so much fun.
