Back to school

CBBC Newsround Online

Back to school - and it seems that tatty lunchboxes are definitely out when it comes to transporting your Marmite butties.

Lunch bags: snacks are rubbish in anything else
We've asked all the big stores selling back to school stuff, and they've told us that coolbags for packed lunches have been one of the biggest sellers in recent weeks.

In fact, what you're seen with in the dinner hall clearly matters more than ever.

Department store John Lewis say that they're shifting loads of sports bottles for that all-important break-time slurp.

But making sure you've got your homework looking great is also a priority.

Woolworths told us that gel pens have flown out of their stores. It seems you just can't get enough sparkly cola-smelling ink to fill up your exercise books!

And they told CBBC Newsround Online that Micropets - the tiny plastic creature which needs looking after - are one of the latest crazes to drive your teachers barmy.

For the lads, anything Spider-Man and footy is best, and the Bang On The Door and Groovy Chick ranges are right up there for the girls.
