  • TECHNOLOGY

    With E-learning going on, some extra supplies may be necessary to improve your child’s learning experience. Headsets improve sound quality and are helpful in blocking noises out, especially when there are siblings in the same room. Smiggle headsets are very attractive for younger kids while Sony headsets are great for slightly older kids. Smiggle is fun and has many cute designs, and some even have fluffy cushions!

  • MARKERS

    Aside from drawing and coloring, markers help make projects become more colorful and attractive. Here are some excellent colored marker brands. Crayola markers are perfect for younger kids to play with and have fun. They come in different shapes, colors, and thicknesses. To top that off, they are water-soluble markers, meaning if your child decides to write on wood, glass, or some other hard and smooth material, it can easily be washed away! There is also Faber-Castell, which has a huge variety of colored markers. Most of these markers are thin and good for outlining things and writing. Yet another brand is the good old Sharpie. Their permanent markers come in a wide range of colors and sizes. They are recommended for slightly older kids as the markers are permanent and cannot be easily erased. However, they are of excellent quality and look really nice on big projects! These markers are readily available on Tokopedia, as well as bookstores and department stores like Paperclip Indonesia, Kinokuniya, Toko Gunung Agung (TGA), Sogo, and AEON.
