Throwback school supplies

Lisa Frank 

Unicorn, Pegasus and rainbows, Lisa Frank school supplies were the most colorful school supplies you could find.

Giant erasers

Basically, you would purposely mess up just to use this giant eraser. It barely worked, but at least it looked cool.

Pencil Grips

We spent most of our time in a competition to see who could flip them inside out, while the pencil was still inside

BUY NOW

Pencil boxes

It had to be clear, because then everyone could see your awesome school supplies. 

BUY NOW

Gel pens

Because it wasn't cool to write your notes in solid colors until the 10th grade. 

BUY NOW

Pencil sharpeners

They didn't work half the time, but at least you were prepared. 

BUY NOW

Eraser top

Because even though all your pencils came with their own erasers, it was good to have backups when doing those fractions.

Smile stickers 

Good when they're scratch 'n sniff, and even better when your teacher used them!

Snap bracelets

How else were you supposed to annoy the boy in front of you?

Mr. Sketch scented markers 

We all know watermelon was the best smelling marker.

Jansport backpacks

Kids today don't know how good they have it. Light blue used to be the only cool color. Now, they have cool ones like doughnuts!

BUY NOW

Floppy disks

Do they still sell these? 

Milky pens

Remember convincing Mom that there was a difference between gel pens, and yes you would die if you didn't have them? 

BUY NOW

Stamp pens

They weren't for paper, but for your hands instead.

Summer is winding down, and everyone's heading back to school in a few weeks.

For parents, that means schlepping to stores in search of new shoes, uniforms and last minute school schedules.

For kids, that means new school supplies. Shopping for that was basically the only good part of the end of summer vacation. You promise your mom you won't lose your lunch box, that you will take notes in your new galaxy binders and yes, your planner will not stay unmarked.

For us oldies, that means reminiscing about gel pens, the coolest Lisa Frank folders and who had the weirdest colored floppy disks.

If you went to school in the 90s, chances are these back-to-school supplies will have you feeling some type of way.
