We have quite the collection of Smiggle items. Some of which I don't object to, such as the rucksacks which are £21 each and are a great size and even have space for a 15" laptop in a separate compartment (not that they have such a thing mind).
The water bottles are nice too with the big selling point to children of the 'spray' feature. Great for hot summer days at school. However, I'm doubtful of their durability if they were dropped as they seem to be designed of shattering plastic (say a few friends whose children have had them).
One of my daughters takes a packed lunch daily to school and just before the start of term 2 this academic year, we bought her a Smiggle lunch box. It was a nice size, carrying handle, separate compartments, knife/fork holder (if you have a baby knife/fork only though) and, of course, she said it had a lovely smell. It's also relatively well insulated. However, after only 2 terms use, it is beginning to wear out at the bottom. She certainly doesn't drag it around so how it's got like this is mystifying. It sits in her school rucksack and then sits on a shelf in the class until she takes it to lunch. It's then put back in her rucksack until it's time to go home!
