Back to school for kids goes beyond pens and pencils

When we were kids, back to school shopping was never this cute

1. We love the “Vs. Mittens” collection from Hoopla, which pairs up unlikely critters. They’re now available in kids sizes, making for silly commutes and recess puppet shows. www.vsmittens.com

2. They can upgrade their doodles with this fun journal from Crayola that uses a special paper and pen to create super-colorful notes. Also on our art-box wishlist: Crayola’s new markers made with recycled plastic. $4-6, www.crayola.com

3. There's no promising they'll eat the carrot sticks, but this "Victorious" lunch tote is just one of the items based on the hit Nick show. $6-$9, available at Wal-Mart stores

4. Coming soon to tween desks everywhere: Justin Bieber's line of notebooks, folders and binders for Mead. $1.40-$6, www.mead.com
