Sonic School Supplies in the USA Page 13
|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.|

|This is called the 'vintage style Sonic' backpack. It's a Spencers item in spring/summer 2021. The name for it is both true and not true. It uses all classic style and neoclassic art for the rather busy design, but the look of the bag is not 'vintage' nor 90s at all. Something like this wouldn't be produced then, it is not the style of the time.
The slogans don't help either, with "Gotta Go Fast" which is the meme/gag thing that caught on from the Sonic X anime opening theme song getting made fun of. The bag is white with black trim, straps, handle and zippers. It's a full size bag, probably canvas-type as it is somewhat costly at 50 dollars. It has "Let's Go", "Gotta Go Fast", Sonic's name and Sonic's name spelled out in Japanese (along with 'the hedgehog' also in Japanese) 1991, checkers, pixel rings and an unknown Japanese phrase in red.
The bag is certainly very Sonic, if a tad busy and lively but that's the point. It's a nice item for classics fans.
|Spencer's Gifts (that store in the mall) gets back into Sonic in 2021 with this "Wrist Pouch". Is it an accessory, or a school supply? Who knows...but here it is. It is classic style, with black/white checkers and only profile-running classic Sonic scattered on it. It also has his name spelled out in Japanese in a blue font. The zipper pull is plain and black. The wrist strap is that blue nylon-weave stuff, with his name in Japanese and English. There's also a fun, pixelated ring-charm attached too. That's a nice touch and really puts this from 'plain' into the thoughtful/fun category. It's a nice item for 13 dollars....if you can figure out what you want to do with it.|
