Teresa from Tiaras & Tantrums, a 5 Minutes for Mom contributor, shares her excitement about the relaunch of a beloved 80’s product in this sponsored post. Our writers are compensated, but all opinions remain their own.
I could not be more excited about a product making a return to the main stream of school supplies. #TrapperKeeperIsBack!
The Trapper Keeper was introduced in 1978 and was a mainstay in the 80’s, all through my years of schooling. I’m so happy to introduce the Mead’s Trapper Keeper to my kids now.
My children are home educated but attend a private academy one day a week. We compile all our school books, school work, supplies and binders in a rolling cart and off to academy they go. My children have 3-ring binders for each class they attend, because 3-ring binders are necessary tools to teach our children good organizational skills that they will take with them through their formal education and beyond.
The only issue with a 3-ring binder is sometimes they are hard for little hands to manage. My daughter has dropped a couple of the binders when passing from one class to the next. You can imagine all the papers that go flying out of her binders. It does cause some distress to her. Thus my joy at the new design element of the snap closure.
Mead has updated the closure to a super sturdy snap, making it easier and more durable for my girls to keep their things stowed away safely and securely. Also, standard on all new 2014 Trapper Keeper products, the new Snapper Trapper feature makes it easier than ever to snap supplies in and out of their binder without the hassle of opening the rings. This will save my daughters valuable time whilst transferring in between classes.
There are many new product options that include binders, folders, notebooks, dividers and student planners. Additionally, all these amazing products are offered in a variety of colors: red, blue, green and purple. My girls can color code any way they desire to fit their own organizational and personal styles. The cohesive platform will enable my children to use this system of tools quickly and easily and aide them in staying organized.
I loved them and now my kids can too, because the Trapper Keeper is back!
