UK Area Sonic the Hedgehog School Supplies Page 3
|Even though school can be annoying, school supplies is still a fun catagory for Sonic. There are lots of neat Sonic theme things that can be done with school supplies. Plus, nothing says you have to use these for school work! Making Sonic arts & crafts, and using them to store other Sonic items are also good ideas. Many of the items make organizing your Sonic collection neater or easier.
The UK, while not having as much in the way of school theme stuff like Japan (but in the area of skool...Japan is nearly invincible stuff-wise) still turned out a nice selection. Most of these things are modern. If you see any classic items (true oldies) you'll need Ebay to find those.

|This is a soft-sides bag, likely to be a lunch carrier with insulation for hot/cold food. It has a blue checker themed background, with nice CG art for Sonic, Tails & Knuckles on the front flap. There are also some rings in the background. It has an adjustable blue strap & diecut paper tag. This is likely to be a part of the "Blue Print" release items going on at the top of this page. If you find it in stores, it should be about 7 pound. Found in winter 2012. Photo & owned by:|
|Here's a cool schoolbag back pack from Asda. It has CG Sonic & Tails (for fresh art) on the outer part, with an all black/gray checkered background. There's a handle for carrying and shoulder straps. The modern logo is at the top. The part of the bag with designs on them appear to be coated with (or behind) a glossy plastic of some kind. This was made in 2013, and should be about 7 pound if you find it. Photo discovered by:|
|This is a messenger style bag. It's likely made out of faux black leather (plasti-leather) with nylon strap. How does the strap go? Is it only on one end as it appears in the photo, or does it go all the way across like a normal bag? There's a fun graphic of classic style spinning Sonic in 1 corner, and a keychain-type flat rubber Sonic face for the zipper pull as a fun added touch. This is a 2014 bag at TruffleShuffle website, and it should be 26.99 pound. The price may or may not be reasonable depending on what it's made of/quality. Discovered by ShadowFoxx757|
|This hard-card 3-ring binder is a genuine classic item, from some point in the 1990s. It was probably around the time of Sonic 2, as it has a Sonic & Tails theme for the front and the back. On the front they are shown jumping, with a giant Caterkiller in the background, & the back has them running across a bridge while a Chop-Chop fish jumps out of the water. It looks like Tails sees the fish while Sonic is just looking ahead. Photo & owned by DarkwingUK|
|Hooded backpacks are a strange idea. This one that appears at Truffleshuffle.com is no exception. Are they super dorky? Is the dorky-ness somehow ironic in the internet age? Whatever the fashion, this mostly blue & black bag has a texture/shapes background in 'grunge' style with winking Sonic face. Classic 'frowning' Sonic is on the large exterior pocket. The hood attachment has little ears and a few improperly placed tiny flat spikes. The way it is posed for the picture shows the hood twisting to look back at the viewer...even though it is empty for a ghostly look. Discovered by Shadowfoxx757|
|This is called "Value Pack Bag".
That's what it says in the little orange sunburst at the top. It's a clear sack with 2 bags inside for school. The first is a schoolbag (Though not as big as a traditional one) with running Sonic at the top, checkered band, and clapping Sonic at the bottom. He says "Time for fun...homework's Done!!" as he claps near the Game Gear logo.
The second bag is a hip pack/belt bag/fanny pack type smaller long item. It has the Sonic logo on the front & features Robotnick chasing after running Sonic. The top to this is lavender to match the school bag, and has a red zipper.
These MAY have had a dual release, both in the UK and in the USA. This bag, or a similar bag may have also been sold by itself/not on a value pack.
|The solution for squished sandwiches?
A Sandwich Tin! This is a metal box about the size of a piece of bread. When you use a soft-sides lunch carrier, or even a regular lunch box, you can put your sandwich in here to keep it from being squished when packed/shaken around on the way to school or work. It also keeps it fresh & you don't use energy by throwing away tons of baggies. It's a pretty handy item.
The square tin has close up/off the edges winking forward-facing classic Sonic for the lid & a blue/white checker pattern for the box base. Sadly, it also has "Faux Wear" or the purposeful design chipping to make it look 'vintage', but generally comes across a bit shabby instead. This is a 2016 item, but where could it be found?
