NOBODY PANIC…Back to School with @Smiggle_

I fall into the same trap every summer. End of July I’m totally breezing into the holidays declaring we don’t ‘need’ anything for September, having adopted more of a ‘buy as needed’ approach to school uniform.

When it comes to toys, I firmly believe that a globe is an absolute must have for every child at some point in their early life.
