A Leak Proof Drink Bottle
A leak and spill proof drink bottle with no messy straws to clean – we’re in love! Plus this beauty is vacuum insulated to keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours and hot for 12 hours – and no teeth pulling or twisting to open!
Why we love this drink bottle – thanks to the one-way valve in the cap no food can flow back into the bottle (need we say more!). It is also a great bottle to use at night or throw in a school bag as it won’t leak.

Kids’ Online Courses
Miss M Online Classes is a business educational project about entrepreneurship, marketing and financial literacy basics for kids and teens.
Self-paced online courses provide comprehensive marketing education to entrepreneurial kids that is beyond running a lemonade stand and can be taken anytime, anywhere – after school, on weekends or during school holidays.
Children learn to discover and monetise their talents, understand core elements of business and entrepreneurship, analyse advertisements, how to avoid impulse purchases and recognise powerful selling features. Miss M Online’s mission is to help you raise financially resourceful children and build their confidence to earn so they can chase their dreams, not money.

Stainless Steel Bento Lunch Box
Ecococoon’s large Bento Box is made from 18/8 stainless steel. And the magic that makes this Bento Box so amazing is its removable silicone seal in the lid which stops thicker liquids from leaking out and causing soggy crackers and sandwiches.
The Leak Proof Bento Box has five compartments which make it easy to pack a healthy, well-balanced lunch on the go. The largest compartment is great for a sandwich or pasta salad and the small sections are ideal for fresh fruit, veggies, and of course a treat. Each section is sealed individually to keep meals and snacks fresh and mess-free. You won’t have to worry about soggy sandwiches.

A Library Bag For Toting Reads
Customisable with your child’s name, these versatile drawstring bags put an end to endless trips to the Lost Property bin!
Available in blue or pink and a cinch to fold and store, they’re ultra-lightweight and water-resistant. Use them for library books, school swimming programs, or as an extra bag for times when the school bag just isn’t big enough. And when the weekend rolls around, they’re perfect for playdates and sports classes.
But perhaps best of all, they’re safe to toss in the washing machine when they need a good scrub.
Each bag measures 36.5cm x 40cm and can be personalised with up to 15 characters in a huge range of fun fonts and designs. The only problem is choosing!
Despite how eager certain kiddos are to crank up their favourite YouTubers, little ears need gentle sound. And that’s why Moki Kid Safe Headphones are some of the most popular amongst Aussie families.
Available in a range of fun colours and equipped with cushy pads, they’re specifically made with restricted sensitivity of 89dB to avoid damage to little ears.
The flexible headband means they’ll comfortably see little ones through growth spurts, and the single cable makes them less likely to get tangled during use.
A Durable Pencil Case
Creative kids need a trusty pencil that looks as good as it performs – and these colourful gems from Typo absolutely fit the bill.
Each style uses 100% cotton and measures 23cm x 15cm, making it big enough to hold a high school calculator. They have one large central compartment and two handy front pockets, so they’re perfect for tucking USBs into a safe spot, separate from glue sticks and markers.
Awesome Art Smocks
No parent enjoys scrubbing paint and ink off uniforms, so equip your little artist with a gorgeous art smock to protect clothes and bodies.
Bare and Boho children’s smocks use 100% recycled polyester with PU laminate to withstand anything the kids throw at it, from gloopy glue to pretty paints. And uniquely, each features stunning artwork from Australian Cass Deller in styles and shades to suit every little Picasso.
Front pockets give tools and treasures a special home and the adjustable snap closure caters to growth spurts. These beauties tick every box.
