Back 2 School With Wilko

Spud has been spoilt for choice this year with all the back to school items he has received, next up to be featured from Unique Young Mum's Back 2 Skool feature is Wilkinsons. Wilko very kindly sent Spud some items from their Galaxy Gang range, and some items from their Friendly Fairies range. Thanks to Wilko, three of my readers/visitors will have the chance to win the fab items we received themselves!


Galaxy Gang

We received the following items below from Wilko's Galaxy Gange range. Prices and details are below with individual product pictures.


Wilko Galaxy Gang Chunky Pencils, 90p for a pack of 6.

Suitable for ages 3+, you receive 6 chunky plain lead pencils in two different designs. Three of the pencil's are star themes and the other three are galaxy themed. Spud found the pencil's very easy to hold due to their thickness, unfortunately we don't have a big enough sharpener to sharpen them, so be warned if you do buy these, they do require a large sharpener as they are not pre-sharpened.

Wilko Galaxy Gang Chunky Felt Tip Pens, £1 for a pack of 6.

Suitable for ages 3+, you receive 6 chunky galaxy design felt tip pens. You receive the following colours; black, blue, green, red, orange and yellow. I was surprised for the price for the price how strong the colours were and Spud enjoyed using them. They have been added to his arts and crafts box for his next crafty adventure.

Wilko Galaxy Notebook A5 Wiro - £1.50 for 80 sheets.

Suitable for ages 3+, the Galaxy Gang notebook has 80 Galaxy Gang lined sheets. The notebook is not hardback, but is perfect for little ones to practise line writing and jotting down any little notes they have! For budding little story fans, for a small price they can create their own story!

Wilko Galaxy Gang Mini Art Pack - £1.75

Suitable for ages 3+, this little art set is perfect for on the go fun. The Galaxy Gang set contains; 8 coloured crayons (black, grey, orange, green, red, brown, blue and yellow), sharpener, eraser, plain led pencil, 12 coloured paint blocks (light green, purple, black, yellow, orange, light blue, brown, dark blue, light brown, red, pink and dark green) and a small paintbrush. The set closes back together and is perfect for car/train journeys bar the paint and is the perfect size to fit into a child's backpack!

Wilko Galaxy Gang Rocket Pencil Case Red - £2.50

Suitable for ages 3+, Spud loved the design on this rocket pencil case, but we found the pencil case a little small, we was able to fit 4 Galaxy Gang pencils in and all 6 of the colouring pens but had little room for any more. This would be the perfect starter pencil case for little ones starting school. The pencil case opens and closes with the use of a zip.


The Wilko Galaxy Gang range starts with prices as little as 50p and the most expensive being the pencil case at £2.50. To view more of the Galaxy Gang range check out the Galaxy Gange stationary page on the Wilko website.


Friendly Fairies

We received the following items below from Wilko's Friendly Fairies range. Prices and details are below with individual product pictures.


Wilko Friendly Fairies Chunky Pencils, 90p for a pack of 6.

Suitable for ages 3+, you receive 6 chunky plain lead pencils in one design, crowns and stars. Just like the Galaxy Gang pencils, the pencils are easy for children to hold due to their thickness. Unfortunately we don't have a big enough sharpener to sharpen them, so be warned if you do buy these, they do require a large sharpener as they are not pre-sharpened.

Wilko Friendly Fairies Roller Glitter Pens, £1.50 for a pack of 5.

Suitable for ages 3+, you receive 5 chunky Friendly Fairies glitter roller pens. You receive the following colours; pink, orange, green, blue and purple. I had to test the Friendly Fairies range out as Spud understandably refused to touch anything pink and girlie! I wish I was a little girl again, just so I had the excuse to use glitter pens in my life, with that being said, I am still young, so I have added them to my shopping list for when I next go town! The glitter was clearly visible and all the colours are very pretty! 

Wilko Friendly Fairies Hardback Notebook A5 Wiro - £1.50 for 80 sheets.


Suitable for ages 3+ this hard back Friendly Fairies note book is just the cutest! The Friendly Fairies notebook has 80 Friendly Fairies lined sheets. This  notebook is perfect for little ones to practise line writing and jotting down any little notes they have! For budding little story fans, for a small price they can create their own story! The notebook also comes with two beaded dividers!

Wilko Friendly Fairies Mini Art Pack - £1.75


Suitable for ages 3+, this little art set is perfect for on the go fun. The Friendly Fairies set contains; 8 coloured crayons (black, grey, orange, green, red, brown, blue and yellow), sharpener, eraser, plain led pencil, 12 coloured paint blocks (light green, purple, black, yellow, orange, light blue, brown, dark blue, light brown, red, pink and dark green) and a small paintbrush. The set closes back together and is perfect for car/train journeys bar the paint and is the perfect size to fit into a child's backpack!

Wilko Friendly Fairies Faux Fur Pink Pencil Case - £2.50

Suitable for ages 3+, the Friendly Fairies pencil case comes in a hand bag design complete with handles. I found the pencil case a lot bigger than the Galaxy Gang one, and was able to fit the full pack of pencils and glitter pens in, with more room to still add in other items. The pencil case opens and closes with the use of a zip.


The Wilko Friendly Fairies range starts with prices as little as 35p and the most expensive being the pencil case at £2.50. To view more of the Friendly Fairies range, check out the Friendly Fairies stationary page on the Wilko website.
