Smiggle comes to Bury in North Manchester on June 10th!

If you haven't heard of Smiggle then somewhat unusually I'm well ahead of you. The Australian-based stationery company have recently opened a branch in the Manchester Arndale, and now they're spreading out further with branches in Bury, Bolton and Bradford opening in early June.


Smiggle is dedicated to creating original, fun and affordable stationery. The products are focused on bold colour, quirky graphics, good value, innovation and most of all – giving fans the tools they need to have fun. A pencil at Smiggle is not 'just a pencil'. It might be smelly or furry or liquid chalk or disguised as a wild animal, but it isn't 'just' anything.


And a Smiggle pencil case isn't going to be something you want to hide at the bottom of your bag...


Three of the people through the doors at the Bury Branch when it opened on Friday June 10th to choose some stationary were me and my 6 and 7 year old boys...There were bundles of creative fun planned for the opening, including double craver saver stamps, giveaways and more!


Smiggle have a huge range of products, and the boys had great fun spending their voucher. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, and really attentive to he boys, showing them all kinds of great goodies, and even demonstrating a few!



The staff knew their products really well, and were happy to explain and demonstrate any of them - including the Rainbow Ribbon and the Spy Pen!



There are more flavours of smelly pencil than you would ever imagine! 


Save up Craver Stamps for rewards, plus over the opening weekend reaching certain spending totals will also earn you extra free gifts.


The stationery my 6 and 7 year old boys chose - plus our free gifts. Colour-in books, coloured pens and smelly coloured pencils. Sparkle coloured gel pens, notpads, smelly stickers, rainbow ribbon, a swanny whistle pen, snake puzzles, a spy pen and a create your own dinosaur craft kit.....


When you visit Smiggle - smell everything. 


Smiggle now have almost 60 branches in the UK. To find your nearest store, see the Smiggle store locator.

Smiggle have kindly offered one of my readers a £25 Smiggle voucher so that you can go and choose something for yourself or your children. Entry to the giveaway is by Gleam form below. There are no mandatory entries, but each task completed earns you more entries into the random draw.
