Back to School with Creative Kidstuff

Get your tweens and teens ready for a new year with some new gear.

It’s August and we all know what that means: Back-to-school time is approaching! Upon us are the days to find those school supplies to get your kiddos ready for another year of learning. Creative Kidstuff in Wayzata has all you need and more to survive at school, so read on for a few of their top picks to start the year off in style.


Stylish satchel 

This is the must-have bag of the year—for kids and adults. Inspired by the neon Cambridge satchels seen all over the fashion blogs, Alex Toys created a neon satchel available at Creative Kidstuff in bright pink, orange and green.


Mad about this pack

The MadPax is the ultimate over-the-shoulder book holder that melds function and style. Forget the cartoon characters or simple canvas backpacks of yesteryear. The MadPax sport their soft spikes in bright colors, including a silver metallic crocodile print. MadPax is also coming out with a new bubble style, which Creative Kidstuff will carry this fall.


Sack attack

A recent study reported that more than 90 percent of bag lunches were eaten at unsafe temperatures. With the new PackIt Freezable Lunch Bag you can freeze overnight, your child’s lunch will always be at the appropriate temperature. 


30 Days Has September 

Pocket book with rhymes, shortcuts, acrostics, acronyms and other mnemonic devices. Even adults will find this one useful—especially if you can never remember the multiplication tables, the spelling of the word "Mississippi” or the names of the planets.


Leave a message after the tone

Use the Talkatoo clip to leave messages for little ones in lunchboxes or backpacks, or reminders when kids get home from school. They’re also a great alternative to the Kindergartener’s giant name tag with their name, address and “if found, please call” information.


iPad meets Etch-A-Sketch

The Boogie board allows kids (or parents) to take or leave notes in technology-infused style with this Boogie Board LCD Writing Tablet. You can lock the tablet to ensure notes don’t get lost, which makes it great for on the go notes.
