When you wish upon a star, it’s magical Disney-themed school swag you may receive. Kids everywhere love Disney, whether they’re into the princesses, the Pixar characters from franchises like Toy Story and Cars, or the marvelous Marvel crew, popularized by The Avengers and co.
So when you’re eying back-to-school supplies for your littles, why not pick up a few things to help them express that love while getting them excited for a return to the classroom? There are tons of options out there, from themed water bottles to knapsacks to lunch boxes to stationary. Here are a few of the best Disney school supplies to get you started, and maybe even inspire you to pick up some of your own work swag while you’re at it. Because when it comes to Disney, we’re all just big kids.
1. Disney Frozen 2 Stationery Gifts Set
BEST FOR FROZEN FANS
No Frozen backpack is complete without this impressive and comprehensive stationary kit, which has all of the icy goodness your kid fan could ever want. Inspired by the adventurous sequel, it comes with pencils, a pencil case, a ruler, notebook, glue, a sharpener, eraser, a file folder and stickers so that if your kid does find something that’s not covered in Anna, Elsa and Olaf goodness they can also decorate that.
2. Disney Princess Emoji Girl’s 16 Inch School Backpack Bag
BEST FOR SAVVY PRINCESS LOVERS
Disney Princesses and emojis? What young Disney-loving kid wouldn’t be into that? This colorful knapsack covers all of the classics —Cinderella, Snow White, Jasmine, Ariel and Belle — with some fun adornments like pumpkin carriages, lamps and seashells for that extra touch of busy but fun design. It also comes with side pouches for water bottles and a front zipper for smaller items, making this a fun but functional back-to-school piece.
3. Eureka Mickey Color Pop! Stickers
BEST FOR KIDS WHO NEED TO GET ORGANIZED
Looking to add a bit of fun and personality to some basic or leftover school supplies from last year? These label stickers are an inexpensive and easy way to customize notebooks, binders, pencil crayon packs and other items. Each set comes with 12 stickers to keep your kid organized and ready for the school year in no time.
4. Disney Coco Blue Pencil Case
BEST FOR KIDS WITH LOTS OF PENS
Pencil cases are an essential item to keep any backpack organized, so why shouldn’t you invest in one your kid is going to love (and hopefully take care of)? This Coco-themed pouch is large enough to hold pencils, erasers and even a small calculator, and it’s made from cloth, rather than plastic material, which means it’s designed to stand up to the long school year ahead.
5. Disney Toy Story 4 Made To Play 16″ Kids’ Backpack
BEST FOR TOY STORY FANS
Kids are made to play, so they need a backpack that holds up — especially when they’re lugging around lunches, notebooks, gym clothes and who knows what else. That’s why we love this sturdy, Toy Story-themed backpack, which comes decked out with a separate laptop sleeve accessory pocket. The hope is that even if your kid has to bring a tablet back and forth, you can rest assured their technology is (more or less) protected. Or at the very least, packed separately from their lunch and water bottle. The best Disney school supplies are functional and versatile, and this backpack certainly hits that mark.
6. Belle Lunch Box – Beauty and the Beast
BEST FOR STYLISH STUDENTS
This stylish, purse-inspired lunch bag is perfect for all kinds of Belle-loving bookworms, no matter how tough they are on their things. That’s because this lunch bag comes with a double zipper top closure and a food-grade insulated interior to keep lunch fresh and intact during transport. It also comes with an interior label which parents always love, because let’s be real: kids are always losing their stuff.
7. Lightning McQueen Lunch Box – Cars
BEST FOR HUNGRY CARS FANS
Fuel your kid’s appetite for yummy snacks and Cars alike with this Lightning McQueen-shaped lunchbox. Kid fans will love the brilliant red color and shape, plus it comes with a sturdy fabric carrying handle for easy transport. It also comes with all the things a parent wants in a durable and long-lasting lunch bag, like an ID label, an insulated interior, and a double zip closure … just in case.
8. Disney Animators’ Collection Zip-Up Stationery Kit
BEST FOR CREATIVE KIDS
This cute and crafty princess set has everything a kid needs to start the year off right, from markers and pencils to an eraser, notebook, stencil ruler and glue stick. The best part is that it all stays neat and organized with the glittery, princess zip enclosure, which features beautiful drawings of young Tinkerbelle, Pocahontas, Moana and Aurora.
9. Stitch Spiral Bound Sectioned Notebook – Lilo & Stitch
BEST FOR DOODLING
Kids can scratch all kinds of musings into this Stitch-inspired notebook, which features a colorful design that’s immediately appealing to all fans of the classic 2002 movie. There are 90 lined sheets with three semi-transparent dividers to help kids take notes, jot down thoughts or even practice their printing skills when they get home from school. Because with Disney school supplies like this, what kid wouldn’t want to put pencil to paper before dinner instead of lounging out with their tablet?
10. Spider-Man Stainless Steel Water Bottle
BEST FOR THIRSTY FANS
Are water bottles now considered school supplies? We think so, considering kids are strongly encouraged to bring them these days. Older Marvel fans will probably appreciate this sleek but on-brand Spider-Man-themed stainless steel offering, which is sturdy and large, but will also keep water nice and cool all day long.
11. Spider-Man Zip-Up Stationery Kit
BEST FOR ORGANIZED CRAFTING
Spider-Man fans will also get a kick out of their own zip-up stationery set, which includes all of the fun craft- and art-making essentials any kid needs to spin their own creations at school and at home. This one comes with fun spider-inspired stencils and a retro cartoon notebook, plus there’s a removable Spider-Man charm and stickers for that extra hit of Disney-Marvel fun to their Disney school supplies.
12. Mickey Mouse Weekly Planner
BEST FOR PLANNING
For those kids out there that need a visual, this Mickey-inspired paper planner can totally help them keep their week in check. There are 52 sheets to cover the entire year (including holidays!) and enough extra space under each date that kids can also doodle and personalize their calendars as well. For better organization, it’s tough to do better than the best Disney school supplies.
13. Ariel Journal – The Little Mermaid
BEST FOR JOURNALING
Kids can have big feelings, so why not encourage them to write some down after school with an Ariel-themed journal? The hardcover offering was released as a part of the Disney Parks Ariel’s Anniversary Collection and it features lined pages so that kids can keep their emerging printing in check. Plus this journal features illustrated pages and patterned endpapers to spark extra creativity. There’s also a loop that easily holds a pen, so if you pop one in, this could make the perfect little gift for any Little Mermaid lover as they prepare to tackle another school year.
14. Raya and the Last Dragon Backpack
BEST FOR KIDS WITH SWAGGER
Getting Kumandra back together is a tall order, so your kid will need a pack with ample room for their jackfruit jerky and other essentials along the way. This shimmery backpack is great for kids of all sizes thanks to the adjustable, padded shoulder straps, and it also features side and front pockets to help keep items organized. Most importantly, wearing this pack is like carrying a piece of Sisu herself, which is bound to give any youngin’ strength as they walk up those steps on the first day of school.
15. Marvel Avengers Pen Bundle Set
BEST FOR AVENGER FANS
We may have left the Avengers in a not-so-great place, but that doesn’t mean your kid’s Disney school supplies have to be so somber. Be the hero in your kid’s life with a super stocked pen set that includes a variety of pens (including an Avengers projector pen that shines the Avengers logo onto any surface), bookmarks and stickers. The officially licensed bundle makes a great back-to-school starter set or a thoughtful gift for any Marvel fan.
16. Disney The Lion King – 12 Wood Pencils Pack
Whether you’re helping to restock a pencil case or starting out with a whack of fresh new Disney school supplies, you can never have enough pencils.
