13 Kinds Of Stationery You Had As A 90s Irish Kid

There's truly only one thing Irish children loved buying before returning to school in September - stationery. A 90s kids' stationery is probably the most colourful group of objects that have ever co-existed.

Although we more often than not hoarded said stationery we took pride in our bits and bobs.Here are just some of the bits of stationary you loved as a kid:

Gel Pens

'Cause every word had to be colour co-ordinated. You knew you were bad when you changed every letter to a different colour.

Jumbo Crayons

The front of everyone's 'copy book'/ 'exercise book' was coloured by one of these giant crayons.

Pencil Toppers

Every pencil or pen was deserving of a costume.

Books covered in Wrapping Paper

If you were lucky the wallpaper wouldn't be ten years old or a disgusting print. A brown paper bag would often suffice.
