Pencil Case Showcase

Pop out pencil case--a hit amongst kids in the 90s

This used to be a competition amongst girls back in grade school. The one with the most number of crayons wins. The one with the prettiest watch becomes the toast of town for at least two weeks. Lastly, the one with the most number of compartments for a pencil case will be crowned as Miss National Bookstore. 

Behold, the pop-out pencil case. This particular case boasts of a pencil sharpener, a kisses holder, a small container for paper clips, a calendar and it’s in bubble gum pink. What more can you ask for?

    I have to admit. I got into this whole pencil case galore when I was a kid. Everyone just had different designs, which were all so cute.

RSS Return of the Nineties by Kidswereus

  • Kidswereus Recalls (and ambitiously recommends) March 4, 2008
    It’s been a year since we’ve begun this blog. Wahoo! It’s time to bring back the love to the next batch of SEO experts, bloggers, and internet marketers! This year’s theme is more social-oriented. I guess this idea came from our professor who thinks that the Internet is more than an all-in-one medium that integrates […]
  • Pop Swatch! November 1, 2007
    They were funky, overly large, and well cute.  The Pop Swatch was born in the 80’s but it got to Manila during the nineties. My cousin was obsessed with collecting all the straps that would match. We would always pass by Gift Gate in the Greenhills Shopping Arcade so that we would see the new […]
  • Oh Tokyo! October 29, 2007
    The show’s goal was simple: to give the Pinoys an overview of the Japanese culture. We love it for the host’s flawless translation of Japanese to Filipino. It also helps that she speaks in a sing-song voice while she asks the Tokyo-dwellers about their day-to-day living. Sad to say, this show stopped airing in RJ […]

  • For kicks: Guess this 90s Telenovela October 27, 2007
    The year was 1998 and we, as a nation, have just recovered from the Thalia telenovela avalanche. We needed a change of pace so here’s a soap whose heroine is a child. Her height is as tiny as her voice! I love her show-gum smile and lengthy lashes. The story was interesting in the beginning: […]
