National Stationery Week 2016 || Stationery Review

This week is National Stationery Week, and in joyous celebration I shall be reviewing some lovely bits from Maped Helix.
A little bit about Maped Helix;
Helix was founded in 1887, with as initial activity, the production of Wooden Ruler
In 1912 the first Maths set was produced,
in 1935 the Oxford brand was launched,
In 2012 Helix becomes part of the Maped Group and the company name changes to Helix Trading Ltd

The Power of the Written Word

According to YouGov research commissioned by National Stationery Week, 92% of adults think that writing by hand is important and 97% think it is important for children to be taught to write.
National Stationery Week celebrates the written word and all things stationery – the products which make it all possible, and give pleasure to so many people.



I was very kindly sent the Color'Peps jungle innovation felt tip pens,
Color'Peps metal box colouring pencils and,
Color'Peps  gel crayons.




Both myself and the boys loved our goodies, I enjoyed using the felt tips and pencils to do my adult colouring, and the boys just loved doodling with all of them.

I love that the colours aren't just plain old boring; red, green, black...etc.
Instead they're names are there to give you a little bit of inspiration; Marsh Mallow, Marine blue, Bubble blue, Red kiss, Blush.


The crayons were perfect for you, they glide so easily on paper, he was making master piece after master piece.

The twins loved the color'peps felt tips, the innovative shaped holder meant it was easy for them to share, the pens didn't roll all over the place, and best of all no lids were lost!

(Probably my favourite thing about them, it meant I wasn't the one crawling around under the table for the stray lid!)

Noah has claimed rights over the colouring pencils as he prefers pencils over felt tips and yes far too old to be using crayons!
