This classic, retro style pencil sharpener is made of a sturdy metal frame measuring 3″x 3″x 5″. It works on standard sized pencils and has a handy plastic tray underneath that collects pencil shavings. I can easily remove the tray to discard the shavings. The front side of the pencil sharpeners features something like I’ve never seen before. It has these two bars on the top that when squeezed moves these three clamps on the inside that holds the pencils snug tight. This makes sharpening a pencil really easy for a young child. [/tab]

DormCo.com is a great one-stop online shop for getting everything you need to decorate your dorm room. The College Plush Rugs come in a variety of vivid colors. 12 different color in this particular style of rug. I picked the Charcoal Gray because it goes with my bedroom decor. The rug measures 4′ x 6′ so it’s a nice sized rug. The plush that makes it extremely soft measures 1.25″ thick. Each strand of the plush is free flowing which makes vacuuming really easy. It’s also machine washable so when and if my kids spill something on it I can clean it very easily. The bottom of the College Plush Rug is covered in Anti-Slip Gel Beads. This also helps the rug stay in one place and not skid around the house. So even in a dorm room where things can get kinda crazy, your rug will stay put and no one will slip and fall down.
The Cafe Wall Caddy stores the K-Cup coffee pods right on the wall using a single wall outlet. There’s no damage to the walls and the Small version can hold 12 pods. With the Large Cafe Wall Caddy there’s 2 extra sections that easily slide on to hold up to 22 K-Cup coffee pods. The Cafe Wall Caddy is super easy to install. Simple remove the Wall Oulet Cover and place the Cafe Wall Caddy against the wall over the outlet. Then place the Outlet cover back over the caddy and screw it back on. That’s it! It’s also perfect to use in those tiny dorm rooms. College go-ers NEED coffee to get through their busy day and late nights so the Cafe Wall Caddy uses the already existing wall outlets to create a nice space that doesn’t take up any room. And it doesn’t create any wall damage.

SmartKnit Kids Seamless Sensitivity Socks are very well made completely seamless socks that create a level of comfort that my girls have never experienced. The socks are made to hug a child’s feet this helps prevent bunching and irritation at the front of the foot. And there’s no heel this aids to prevent children from out-growing their socks so they can wear them longer. I really love how the socks don’t have a binding top, they feature a Non-binding Halo Top that fits a child’s ankle snug but stays in place. Even the material that the socks are made out of helps to wick away moisture. My kids feet stay dry longer so they don’t get any blisters or stinky feet. The socks come in 6 different colors: White, Black, Pink, Purple, Blue and Gray. And come in a variety of sizes and styles. [/tab]
