We have been using Stabilo products for a while now. H has had problems with his handwriting and we have been using Stabilo pens and pencils to help him get a better grip. It seems to have paid off because he was granted his pen licence last school year after a lot of hard work. We’ve used both the EASYergo (a mechanical pencil) and the Stabilo EASYoriginal (a pen which H has been allowed to use instead of a standard fountain pen at school). If your child is having handwriting problems using these items might help them get off to a good start to the new academnic year. This time Stabilo sent us some different items to try out and we have been trying the EASYgraph ergonomic pencil too. We liked this because it just looks like a fun pencil and I think it seems more grown up than the EASYergo range, but it still provides some help on getting a good grip. Triangular design and non-slip grip moulds ensure a relaxed hand posture, plus there are left and right-handed versions available.
Whilst the handwriting pens and pens are in fun, bright colours, it’s nice to incorporate a bit more fun into going back to school and fun stationery is a great way of doing this and it doesn’t have to break the bank either. We loved these fun highlighters from Stabilo’s MINI Funnimals range. They’re based on the classic STABILO BOSS ORIGINAL range, but this is a mini version which captures the unique distinctive shape of the BOSS Original. Printed with 5 funny animal friends that glow in the dark, they really are a lot of fun. They also have a 4 hours dry out protection time which is good to know.
What are your stationery recommendations for back to school? I used to get a new maths kit each year, was there something that was a part of going back to school each September for you?
