I am completely calling out to the girls my age in this post, or at least close to my age. I loved (and really, still do love) Lisa Frank products.
When I was younger, school supply shopping was absolutely my favorite thing to do, besides going shopping for books. I didn’t really wear a lot of makeup or care all that much about clothes when I was in elementary school (and I’m still not much for clothes shopping now- some things never change!). Nothing was as exciting to me as filling up a new trapper-keeper with paper and decorating a new pencil box. And sharpening a pack of new pencils!
Anyway, my all-time favorite school supplies were Lisa Frank supplies.
How can a grade-school girl resist this stuff? The colors are so vivid, and the animals are absolutely adorable. All the characters have back stories and likes and dislikes. It’s a whole world of kittens wearing halos and eating lollipops or unicorns dancing on rainbows or whatever. It’s completely magical, and I absolutely loved it. The company is still producing merchandise, and even though it makes me smile to see it in the store, the new stuff just doesn’t compare to the Lisa Frank supplies of my childhood. (That being said, I did buy a Lisa Frank coloring book for my girls to use during free time. They love it!)
Do you remember Lisa Frank? Do you remember it fondly, as I do?
P.S. Also, “L” is for Lost…. because I just cut on the pilot and I can already tell I am about to watch the entire series over again.
