Pencil Cases for School Kids

Choosing the right pencil cases for kids can be quite tricky. And choosing the right pencil case is just part of the challenging task that parents have when preparing for a new school term, or simply updating a child’s stationery supply. Another challenging task is selecting the right items to include in it. Unfortunately, kids tend to lose things, and pencil cases are often forgotten, lost, or stolen. Some might say that the trick to ensuring that your child never loses sight of their pencil case and keeps good tabs on it is to get them one that they love so much, they never want to lose it. That is a trick that we can easily help you with at TOTEM, as we have an extensive range of stationery cases and bags that kids love. Oh yes, teens tend to love them too.

What Pencil Case Does Your Child Need?

If you think about it, pencil cases have quite an impact on a child’s life, regardless of what stage they are at in the education process. When attending classes and having to complete worksheets and exercises, the absence of a pencil or a sharpener can be a problem, so it is best to get it right first time around. Most pencil cases must include a pencil, pen, sharpener, highlighter, ruler, eraser, coloured pencils and markers, mini stapler, paper punch, and tape. These are the bare necessities to get a child started.

 Below are a few characteristics that a decent pencil case, and co-incidentally every TOTEM pencil case, has:

 Thick and padded material/fabric to protect the contents without easily tearing.

  • Material/fabric that is easy to clean. We all know how tough pen and highlighter marks/stains can be to remove.
  • A sizeable interior to carry all the required stationery without being an awkward shape or size. A compact or strategically designed pencil case is easier to carry around.
  • A fashionable and trendy design, so that a child is actually interested in looking after it. There are many designs, colours, and patterns to choose from in our range, and we always highly recommend including the child in the selection process. Strong and durable zippers, seams and binding. Keep in mind that the pencil case will be opened and closed every day, numerous times. The components used must be strong enough to handle the use without showing wear, tear, or damage
