Sonic School Supplies of the USA Page 10
|Use 'em at home or at school, Sonic school supplies are great. They're also pretty collectible, because they often feature many different characters & are generally inexpensive upon release. This page will have ONLY modern supplies. If you don't need school, and just need some place to store your gear, why not try handy boxes, totes, school bags and binders? They can store more Sonic stuff for you. If an item is currently obtainable, a note will appear with its description. Some items may also be in the Sonic Gear School Supply Store.|

|Here's a classic type canvas tote with "Gotta Go Fast" style!
This traditional colored canvas tote has a big design on the front of Sonic, Tails & Knuckles. They're all classic style, with neoclassic flying Tails, gliding Knuckles, and 'fists forward' Sonic. The art is blended at the back with a trail of matching cross fading colors. Tails fades to blue, Knuckles to yellow & Sonic to red in a 'flame like' edge. In the sort of triangular patterning is the "Gotta go fast!" slogan.
The added color and fun action poses make this a cool and colorful tote that stands out. Canvas is sturdy too, so the tote with it's long handle could have lots of uses. It is fairly reasonably priced at 13 dollars in the SegaShop in 2018.
|Here are 4 notebooks from the SegaShop online.
They all have coated black metal spiral binding & hard card covers. The first is patterend with items from the Sonic 1 special stage. The second has the detailed 'gold' (its a yellowish) running Sonic (modern) with Japanese text. The third is the line work "Emerald Club" art & the last is a Green Hill 16 bit scene with simple Sonic / wing ring art in the 'sky' area.
Each notebook is a nice idea. The complex line arts are a good application for something you're close to/can see the detail each day. The GHZ is a little boring, & the special stage qualifies for 'subtle Sonic'. The problem is that each ordinary notebook is 16 dollars. At that rate, no one would want to take them to school where they could get damaged in a backpack. These are all 2018 / Summer/Fall items.
|A nice canvas tote for your stuff!
Whether bagging books or saving the environment from plastic bags, a canvas tote can be a good idea...especially when Amy Rose is the star! Here, neo-classic art of Amy gets a new 'hands out' pose, and fun pastel colors. She is next to a colorful slogan, spelled out in a slightly abstract / geometric shapes font. It says "Emeralds are a girl's best friend". The phrase is very Sonic-centric, in that only a fan would know what it means.
This is a Sega Shop item in 2018 / 2019, and should be about 11 dollars or so in their online store. 11 is neither great nor terrible for a canvas bag. If the quality of the fabric is very thick, and the design printed on very well/good stitching it could be worth its while. Plus, it stars ONLY Amy, which is something nice to see. The colors are bright & the neoclassic art is fresh so it's a good design too. The 'stlye' of this is called "Color Shock" on Segashop, and several items share the look, as it was a part of a line. You can see the various other items among other pages here on Gear.
|This is a re-usable tote bag for any kind of items.
It's all black & was made for Sonic Mania Adventures. It has good, crisp and bright full color / fully shaded art. The logo is also fully shaded (looks '3d' and somewhat metallic) and large toward the top of the bag.
The scene is a new one, that's slightly confusing, though. It shows Eggman in an odd (stone??) chair, sleeping in his PJs. (Note the pom-pom string tie things & the wrinkly look) He has the traditional Japanese 'sleepy bubble' there, and has spilled his mug of tea on the ground. He's also got his pompom sleepy cap as well. (This is interesting to see because, if you remember some old concept art, the main character of the game was originally going to be Eggman in his pjs just like this...but he was good. So, because this art is new, it's based off that)
Then, there's Metal Sonic sitting on the ground and the front part of his head is caved in to a degree, and someone's applied a criss-cross bandage. He's also holding a small flower. Since you can see the red eyes, he's "alive/awake/whatever you call turn on in a robot) but doing nothing as Eggman sleeps with his feet crossed on his head, using him as a foot stool.
|Why's he have a flower? The foot stool bit is there to show that Eggman does not think highly of MS at all, because footstools are considered the lowliest & most degraded piece of furniture in a home according to traditional views. (Why to this also...) All together, it's kind of an odd bit for a tote. This is a SegaShop item in 2019 online.|
|The Sega Shop brings out a backpack in 2019.
This is their first school bag offering in the online store and it's...ok? It's an all black standard sized bag, in the usual shape. The Sonic element is a classic forward-facing face on the upper exterior pocket. But, it's cut to the pocket's rectangle shape so maybe it's supposed to have the appearance of him....peering through a window?
Then, the sides of the bag have his glove fists printed on them as if he were...what, hugging the bag? Behind the bag? The larger exterior pocket has subtle checkering, with squares of shiny & matte material to add interest. The black and white art with subtle checkers is an eye-catching look, but the design itself is confusing as to 'what they were going for'.
Making the bag all the (less?) attractive is the 60 dollar price tag. The bag doesn't seem to being any ultra-features to the table to be worth that kind of cash. Is there something this entery is missing?
