Sonic School Supplies of the USA Page 8
|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 backpack school bag has a special effect!
The design is lenticular! That means that depending on the angle you see the backpack at, the Sonic art here will shift between poses and look like it's moving. The design is covered in tiny ridges of clear plastic that effects how the design is seen & from what angle. This is difficult to photograph (of course) but you can sort of see it going on there if you look below his pointing-away glove cuff, and above his shoes.
Lenticular stuff is neat, IF you can keep it nice & from getting scratched or scuffed up. That means no throwing the bag or banging it against anything. This bag is probably better for home use than school, because of the cool effect. It should be a standard size bag, but where is it sold? This appears in 2017 at Amazon, but only sometimes.
|It's debateable where this "2 Pak Value Bags" set came from. Is it the USA, the UK, or both? It's a bit of an odd thing, no matter where it's from though, as generally Sonic stuff doesn't come as a 2-in-1 packed like this. The big bag is Game Gear themed, with the handheld's logo there in the bottom right. It has clapping Sonic with a speech bubble that says "Time For Fun...Homework's Done!" Which indicates this bag is supposed to be a school bag, but it's not that big, nor is it (supposedly) that sturdy. The second bag is hard to tell what it is. A pencil pouch? Mini purse? Fanny pack? (do write in if you know for credit) That one is AoStH themed, as it has that version of Robotnick running after Sonic on the other side of the logo. Both itmes have a lavender colored top. Notice that the package also has this|
|lavender color, as do the tags. (Sonic stuff is rarely seen with purple of any sort near its theme) If you own either bag, or know what's up with the set, you can write in for credit. This is uncommon.|
