The list could keep going, but we’ll stop there for now. These are some of the basics, and a few extras to help stay organized through the school year. We just so happen to have everything on this list, all with plenty of cute, kawaii options!

Fun folders featuring favorite characters await! For back-to-school season, we’re offering a special deal on 4-piece San-X folder packs! Get all 4 San-X folders for only $10! Coordinate your classes with your favorite series like Rilakkuma, Sentimental Circus or Sumikko Gurashi! If you’re not sure what to choose, go for the variety packs for a combination of your San-X favorites like Mamegoma, ZombbitIiwaken Shiba Inu & more!



You won’t need to doodle to dress up these notebooks! In addition to the variety of lined and graph notebooks available from San-X and more, we also have Sanrio spiral, exercise and math notebooks. Let Kuromi and My Melody help brighten up your homework, or take notes with Hello Kitty and friends! Sketch with Kutusita Nyanko, graph with Rilakkuma, and practice penmanship with Gudetama.

Boring erasers be gone! Add a little fun to your pencil set with a bright bubble tea eraser or a pretty, pastel sakura blossom eraser. For when the homework gets tough, opt for the jumbo s’mores eraser to make the sweetness of summer last the entire school year.


Plain pens and pencils are no more! Upgrade the boring #2 with kawaii designs on wooden pencils, mechanical pencils, and pens. Whether you’re looking for something simple and sweet or want to invest in a pencil to last the whole year, there are plenty of options, each as adorable as the last. To get the best look at what’s in stock, check out our pen and pencil display in our Shadyside shop!

You could also go for a fresh and fruity theme with Hello Kitty scented erasers, multicolored pens, wooden pencil packs and paper clips featuring her and her Sanrio friends!




Everyone has a favorite pen or pencil, one they just have to use on every test and will never loan out to a friend for fear of losing it. Keep yours safe and sound with a pen and pencil pouch. We have a variety of pouch options perfect to suit your needs. Want to attach it to your backpack so you never forget it? The Kuromi plush pouch with a keychain is the perfect solution. Have a variety of pens, pencils and more to keep organized? Look into the Sanrio character face pouches with multiple zipper pockets. Need something small and simple to keep your pencils from straying all over your bag? Our bright Sanrio slim cases are perfect for keeping your writing utensils out of the way while saving space.




When it’s time to take a break, go to lunch with your favorite Studio Ghibli characters! Keep your lunch organized with a bento box, and make sure your food stays insulated with a lunch bag featuring fun, intricate designs and plenty of space for packing snacks. Don’t forget to stay hydrated! We have plenty of water bottles, too, ranging from light and simple plastic to insulated metal, all with cute designs. You can mix and match to build a lunch set of Studio Ghibli favorites or coordinate the set with the Maneki Neko Lucky Cat designs! Who wouldn’t want a little extra good luck on their pop quiz?




Already have the basics covered? Go above and beyond to be extra prepared this school year. It never hurts to have a stapler handy for you and your friends. You won’t find any snooze-worthy staplers here, but you will find a sleepy Korilakkuma! Don’t forget the staple remover. Dress it up with Hello Kitty!
