These snazzy Suneez sunglasses are designed just for kids and have polarized lenses, UV400 protection and a flexible frame!
If you’re looking for a trendy new pencil case for the new school year, look no further than “Eat Sleep Doodle” their range of super cool colour and design pencil cases are a huge hit with little ones.

The best thing about these pencil cases is that you can colour them more than once! Yep, just pop it in the washing machine on a warm wash and the ink disappears like magic. Leaving you with a blank canvas to get arty with again. Connor loved colouring in the planets on his space pencil case and also noticed the famous moon landing scene on the other side too. He can’t wait to take it into school to show all his friends.
