This subject vexes me.


Every year I go school supply shopping and every year my frustration level rises.  So I am putting this question out to the Universe: WHY DON’T THEY MAKE MORE SCHOOL SUPPLIES TAILORED TO BOYS?

You can find even the most standard of all standard things (like, a hand cranking pencil sharpener) in a girl pattern or color.  But not boys. Oh. No.

Girls have a plethora of folders, binders, pencil cases, composition books, lunch boxes and the like available in every possible color, pattern, combination and style.  You can be a rocker, a pink princess, a horse enthusiast, even a coordinating little prepster.  Boys have none of that.

Every once in awhile you come across something.  BUT IT IS RARE.  My boys are 9 & 11.  Trust me, they don’t want “Cars” folders.  They are a little past Mater and Lightning McQueen.  They need something that is a little rock star, a little skater boy or hell, even something plaid would suffice.
