It's not often that I am offered things to review that are related to my day job, but when I was approached to receive a sample of the new Filofax 'Back to School' range I jumped at the chance.
The 'old skool' soft green cover reminded me straight away of the exercise books that I used to have in secondary school (I think it was the maths books that were that colour), and I loved the soft textured material the cover had been made out of.
Once the elastic band has been popped off, inside it resembles a normal Filofax with the click-shut ringbinder, and the different sections for addresses and diaries. The 'Back to School' range comes with six dividers and to-do lists, coloured lined paper and white squared paper. The diary inserts are available to purchase separately.
It's a great gift and one I'm thinking of getting for one of my colleagues who loves retro products like this. I do wish the diary section was available with it, as it would actually help students using it for school information, but it's a great basic starting kit to engage the younger consumer.
The Filofax 'Back to School' range is available from the Ideas Network for £20.
