BIC Star Wars Stationery Range – Review

Ben hates writing.  He always has.  There’s so many things he would rather do than pick up a pen.  Even as a three year old, he saw no fun in mark-making or trying to write his name.  Of course this wasn’t such an issue when he was little but as he gets older and the expectations to write more increase, it’s something we need to address.  I’ve never quite been able to decide whether he doesn’t have great handwriting because he doesn’t like writing and can’t be bothered to practice, or whether he doesn’t like writing because he has poor handwriting – either way, he’s full of words and great ideas but putting them down on paper just isn’t his thing.

We all know the difference that new stationery can make when it comes to getting us organised or inspiring us to get on with our work and it would seem that Ben is no different.  When we received a bundle of Star Wars stationery from BIC, his eyes lit up and he was keen to get his hands on it all and start writing – although, in the interests of honesty the first sentence he wrote was “I have no idea what to write”  before asking me if he could draw instead.  Rome wasn’t built in a day.

The BIC Star Wars stationery collection features instantly recognisable characters from the famous Star Wars saga – even as someone who has never actually watched a Star Wars film (I know!) I could still tell you who all of the characters were on Ben’s new pens!  And of course, the BIC Star Wars stationery collection isn’t just for kids – we all know someone whose day would be brightened by a Yoda ball ben . . .

    This is a great idea and a really good way to get boys interested in writing a bit more! Mia would really like these too and for some reason she loves Star Wars even though she hasn’t ever seen it and shes 4! 🙂

    What a great way to get children more interested in writing. I used to love using exciting stationery when I was little- great way to keep them motivated! #triedtested

    That looks like a great set….It’s amazing what a themed set of pens can do. My girl is a reluctant writer and when she likes the pens she seems more willing to write x
