You should never snip a real stork but if you do embroidery, cutwork or other fancy seamstering, you’ll recognize these small, 3-1/2” long, stork-shaped scissors as the specialty cutters you need for that sort of work. Their tiny, 3/4” long super-sharp points will snip all the way to the tip.
Better than your average compass set, this beauty from Maped is 5-1/4" long with a 2mm lead plus a spare, 1mm mechanical pencil, an attachment to put your own pencil in, a small lead sharpener, sliding point guard and a clutch. Opens to a max of 5-3/4" and comes in a snap-shut case.
Our 4" long plastic school protractor measures angles of 45, 60, 90, 120 and (duh) 180 degrees with wide bands of color. Great for aspiring engineers, architects, astrophysicists and just general anglers. Not so useful for fishermen, though. From Helix®.
Be ready for anything with this 12" plastic ruler, punched to fit in a 2, 3, or 5-ring binder and holding a 7" pencil, small pencil sharpener and a rubber eraser, because we all make mistakes. From Helix®.
This plastic folio measures 12-1/2" x 9" with internal flaps to hold papers, and an elastic cord. In a blessed relief from the dreaded beige, the outside is covered with assorted Star Wars™ images (our choice). May the reports be with you.
This 360-degree protractor from Helix® measures 6" dia and has 10-degree gradations on the inside and 1/2-degree on the outer ring, as mirror images of each other. In blue translucent plastic, it also folds in half when trigonometry class is over.
The digits are your fingers, and you personally use them to keep track of everything in this compact Mead® day planner, dubbed the "Fat Planner," which never has to be recharged or turned off in class because it's spiral-bound paper inside a nice portfolio with a zipper around three sides. In assorted colors (blue, green, red), they measure just 6" x 5-1/2" x 1-5/8" and have a calendar, class-schedule sheets, exam records and study sheets, a 50-page notepad and storage pockets. Plus you can slide a pen inside the binding. We'll pick a color for you because you've got enough to do.
The manufacturer calls them pencil boxes, but who carries that many pencils? These are just snazzy 8-3/8” x 5-1/4” x 2-1/2” plastic hard-sided boxes with hinged lids, reinforced metal corners and edges, and keyed clasps (you get two keys). Good for jewelry, diaries and special stuff in general. We’ll pick from assorted types including the pink leopard print, clear, blue swirly, or hipster smoked black. But special requests don’t upset us.
