I heard of this brand name from my kids. My daughter came back from school and told me she wanted a Smiggle. I asked her what was a Smiggle. She told me Smiggle was a lot of things. She also told more than half of her class had a Smiggle.

I did not believe her at first but when my son also told me he wanted a Smiggle, then I thought may be this should be something good. So I brought them down to the Smiggle at Vivocity. I was afraid to bring them to such shops because if the items were very expensive and I could not afford them, then my children would be disappointed.

The items were not really cheap but given that they wanted it so much, I bought them each a water bottle and pencil case. The designs of the products were unique but where would the uniqueness be if everyone in your class was using the same things.

What attracts me to Smiggle is the way they organize their items in terms of colors. The brightly lit store with stationaries arranged nicely is really a joy to walk into and have a look. I myself couldn't resist buying a few pastel colored ink pens to try out. It came in a box of 8 different colors and were a joy to look at. When I tried out the pens at the store, I was impressed as the ink was smooth and the colors that came in the box were unique. I realized that those pens were scented too. Since there wasn't any occasion that called for the use of these pens, I left them sitting in the corner of my desk collecting dust.

A few months later when I decided to use those pens again to write a birthday card, I realized that the ink has already dried up and I couldn't write smoothly anymore. I guess the quality of the pens weren't that great after all. Hence, I wouldn't recommend keeping these pens aside for long.

Smiggle sells back to school stuff that are perfect for schooling kids due to the wide variety of colours and interesting discoveries such as a bank box that looks like a diary! It provides practical yet interesting gift ideas for kids becuase such stationery appeals to them. Even teenagers like them i suppose since they are interesting yet useful materials. There are also simple pencil cases and diaries around but it attracts my attention due to the different colours you can choose from. Sometimes, simplicity is what makes it unique. (: Even if I am not planning to buy any items, I would usually go walk one round and see if there are any new arrivals!

Prices range but for those unique items like the bank box, prices are slightly more expensive.

Colourful!

I was amazed by the bright colours Smiggle offers it's customers. From quirky stationery like erasers to "remove huge mistakes" and unique watches, there's a lot to choose from. Smiggle also classifies their products according to colour, which makes it easier to navigate to each individual's preferred items and colour too.

Albeit their products are attractive, I would not spend on them since it will be quite silly to use a gigantic eraser or bendy pencils after a while. Comparing their products to typical stationery, Smiggle is more costly and less practical. Best to find the best stationery at places like Popular!

Look into the shop, and your eyes would be greeted with bright, luminous colours then hold your gaze in the most peculiar way.

There is nothing more tantalizing than this - the bright green, yellow, purple, blue and etc that keeps you lingering outside the borders of the shop. It draws you in naturally, and the next thing you know, you're going in to get something for yourself or someone else.

Smiggle is especially popular amongst the younger generation and the plethora of stationery - pencilbox, pens, bags, notebooks from Smiggle are often the best and most common gift teens would pick for birthdays. Such simple and typical things we often come into contact with in daily lives are made innovative, attractive and cute.

However, as much as the cuteness of Smiggle's products are attractive to us, the marked prices are a little over our budget. Of course, people might agree that good quality products calls for a certain price - but ironically, if their products largely cater to youngsters, then shouldn't the prices be altered to fit into their budgets? We cannot forget that teenagers are not yet working adults that can afford expensive stationery in their absence of any form of salary.

Anyway, Singapore's economy is doing well. And it seems to me, the prices of the products of Smiggle is still not enough to serve as a deterrence to our wealthy Y-generation.

This place leaves a vivid impression on anyone and everyone, for their interesting, eye-catching colour themed stationery.
In a short period of time, they have expanded island-wide, establishing a total of 13 stores and garnered many fans. Certainly, the stores do not lack crowds.

Quite a substantial amount of people are using their metal tin pencil case and pens.
To me, it used to be a great place to buy stationery. However, it did not manage to leave that impression for long. Now, it just seems to be a kiddy shop for children to indulge in attractive stationery.

Perfect gifts for children I guess.
