I did some window-shopping on etsy tonight by doing some searches using school-ish words, and found some cute stuff to share. :)
Lucy Jane Kids sells "My Tiny Tote" -- a kid-sized tote bag in cute fabrics. Some include a rectangle of chalkboard cloth to personalize.
Babeloosh Mini sells organic reusable sandwich bags, snack bags, and lunch totes. (I think these make so much sense. We go through plastic Ziploc bags like we're the Jetsons or something.)
Chet and Dot makes pencil cases out of cute Japanese fabrics. I like that bear and bird who are obviously friends.
sarah + abraham has personalized kids' water bottles and dishes. So sweet! :)
Lily Reed has personalized allergy alert tags. She also has cute bag tags.
Jenster 76 has apple cardigans. :)
Happy Family has "Old School Microscope Science Geek" t-shirts (and onesies!) for kids. They have this illustration on some other neat stuff, too . . . do a search for "microscope" in the Happy Family store.
And Electric Boogaloo has a lot of fun "Geek Up the Nursery" stuff (tag line: If you're a nerd, there's a mighty good chance your babies will be nerds too. Why fight it?) I am fond of this gentle Force=Mass x Acceleration print.
And their what the earth is NOT made of poster is hysterical.
One of the favorite things I found this evening were little wooden figures available at Bunny With a Toolbelt. Make sure to check out her store to see how sweet they all are. Anyway, she will make custom wooden figures to illustrate your child's favorite book. (Ha. I mistyped that at first and it said "your favorite child's book." Oops.) She explains how it works here.
Gibberish has some really cool science necklaces and pendants and suchlike.
And Gibberish 2 (her other etsy shop) has some very pretty "read" accessories. :)
Oiseaux has some of the prettiest bookplates I've ever seen.
And finally, if you, the mama, need a little back-to-school organizational item of some sort, I have always really liked Mary Kate McDevitt's Mini Goals Chalkboards and Clockboards. It's a lovely and sensible kind of an antidote to an electronic to-do list with 15,000 items on it. :)
