Nine awesome back-to-school supplies from Target.

9 Totally Ridiculous but Totally Awesome School Supplies

While classic No. 2 pencils and composition notebooks will always have a place in our hearts (and backpacks), there’s a new crop of school supplies raising the bar on back-to-school shopping this year. From locker chandeliers (yes, they’re real) to slap bracelets that double as rulers, these stylish supplies are trendy, affordable and, dare we say it, even make last period seem shorter. Check out these supplies and more in stores.


Slap bracelet rulers: The 80s are making a comeback in the classroom via slap bracelets, but this time they’re not just for show — they double as rulers for any and all on-the-go arithmetic needs.

Fox backpack: What does the fox say? We’re still not sure, but we know he’d approve of this fierce backpack.

Neon school supplies: These Yoobi school supplies make a statement, and it’s not just because they’re bright neon. Yoobi’s “One for You, One for Me” brand mission means that for every Yoobi purchased, an item is contributed to a classroom pack that is distributed to a K-3 class in the U.S through the Kids in Need Foundation.

Yolo notebooks: But seriously…you only live once so study up and stay in school!

Magnetic locker chandelier: Come on — it’s a pretty bright idea.
Shag locker rug: Because, why not?

Stretchable book covers: Forget wrapping books in the Sunday comics; it’s so much easier to protect textbooks in stretchable covers that won’t rip or tear.

Gold blade scissors: Art class just got a little fancy.

Printed binders: A three-ring circus for your three-ring binders — from floral to forest creatures, there’s a pattern to entertain every type of student.
