The best pencil cases

The best pencil cases
Updated 07 July 2022

MadeForMums, the UK’s No 1 parenting website for product reviews, has rigorously researched pencil cases to recommend the most fun and practical pencil cases available on Amazon.

Getting ready for the new school term is often a rush, as the summer holidays seem to fly by in a flash. At the top of every parents’ back to school list, alongside shoes and a backpack, will be a shiny new pencil case. A good case will keep your little ones’ pencils and crayons organised as well as look cool.

To help you choose the best kids’ pencil case, we’ve rounded up a suggested list of different designs, from monsters and magic colour changers to personalised cases and superhero themes.

Here’s our pick of the best kids pencil cases.

Easthill Big Capacity Pencil Case

As they get older, the list of items your child needs in their pencil case is bound to get longer (especially if they’re studying art or design subjects).

This pencil case is available in a number of colours, and though it holds lots, it’s still compact enough to slip into a school bag or satchel and has a carry strap for clipping onto things if needed.

Download an app to bring it to life

This fun kids’ pencil case is made from one long zip that also acts as the mouth of the talking monster. The fun design fits up to 60 pens or pencils and has an extra-wide opening for easy access to all those school essentials.

The machine-washable feature of the ZIPIT pencil case is a great feature if your kid often forgets to put the lids back on!

As a fun bonus, you can download a special app to bring this pencil case to life. Make sure you’re in a well-lit area, hold the camera over the case, and you can add jokes, animations and other fun elements to videos and photos that can be shared with friends.

Fringoo Sloth Silicone Patch Pencil Case

There are lots of different prints and colours available, but we love the cute sloth design. They all come with a silicone character on the strap, for a final fun touch.

Harry Potter Letter Pencil Case

This pencil case allows young witches and wizards to receive their very own piece of owl post. The case is designed to look like an official letter from Hogwarts, while the back features Harry Potter’s address under the stairs at Privet Drive.

Design that keeps everything in order

Parents will love this pencil case as it takes the stress out of stocking up before school starts. It’s filled with all the essentials, plus a few more unusual additions that may come in handy for older children, like a protractor and a set square.

Superhero fanatics will love this Spiderman-themed kids’ pencil case.

The double-zip and pocket design keep everything in order, with lots of space to swap in new items once the ones provided run out.

Smiggle Colour Change Hardtop Pencil Case

Previous buyers confirm that the colour change feature works saying, “just the heat from a hand, left in place for 30 seconds or so, will leave a bright print.”

As well as the fun colour-changing aspect, this is a classic Smiggle design with a hardtop, a robust zip, and built-in pockets and mesh compartments that ensure it’s as practical as it is fun.
