Everyone can always tell my boys are doing the school run from miles away. Not because of their shouting and laughing at high volume (although they do that as well) usually it’s the jangling of all the key-rings on their school bag which gives it away. It’s got to the point now where I have a policy of one on/one off as the cacophony of jingles can send me batty when it’s one of those days.
Thankfully their latest gang of backpack buddies make no noise whatsoever, and are also much easier to attach than the myriad of keyrings. The boys can even do it themselves.
The name for them is Floppets, and these new friends are all set to become a new playground craze. Attaching to almost everything thanks to the easy fastening velcro loop. Children will be able to customise backpacks, pencils, shoes, glasses, or even wear them as rings around fingers and toes.
Collect and choose your Floppets from the different Floppet groups, Petlets, Munchkin Monsters and Flop Seas.
Floppets are a great pocket-money buy at £1.99 each and are available from Toys ‘R’ Us, The Entertainer and W H Smith.
Start Rite Shoes are also including a special Floppets Foil Pack in every new pair of back to school shoes purchased. This offer is available from Harrods, Brantano and other independent stores.
Toybuzz has a Set of 5 Floppets to give away to one of our readers.
All you need to do to enter is to leave a comment about anything relating to back to school. It could be back to school tips, reminiscing, or pet peeves and gripes.
