What is it
Eatsleepdoodle pencil cases, backpacks and bags make perfect creative gifts that are huge fun, practical and re-usable. In 100% cotton, each comes complete with a pack of 10 wash-out pens (ink really does wash out, including from everything else in the wash!) ready for endless doodling and colouring. Choose from our stationery-inspired graph paper and notebook designs to customise and personalise totally, or our range of colour and learn illustrations. Each of the latter is backed up with info for children to research on our website, making the creative activity an educational one too. Colour and learn designs include butterflies of the world, dinosaurs, space explorer and world map.
Here’s how it all works!

What our experts think
These fun, colour-in pencil cases, backpacks and bags really allow children the freedom to get creative and experiment with their drawing. They went down a treat with our testers, both the fabric and pens are good quality and adults thought they would be a good travel addition to keep children occupied on long journeys.
At first, the children were worried that the colours would bleed onto the fabric but they didn’t – it is great that the bags can be washed so that children can start the creative process again to make a new design. We found that the world map and the animal designs encouraged discussion with their peers and with adults, which is great for developing understanding and building vocabulary.
