Blüm™ (‘bloom’) was founded as a high quality gum eraser manufacturer in 1936. Although we have evolved over the years, we remain a family owned business focused on producing high quality products at reasonable prices.
In addition to our erasers and print making blocks, Blüm™ now offers uniquely designed art, school and travel kits, as well as our own line of colored pencils.

I absolutely hate back to school shopping. The lists are long and over whelming, and the stuff gets expensive! I have two boys in two different grades, and of course their lists are completely different. I was offered the chance to review these Blum School Gear kits. I was very impressed with these! There are a lot of items packed into these little kits. They of course can't match every list from every school, but there are plenty of the basics here. With these kits you shouldn't have to buy very many extra items, at least not the smaller items. The markers, colored pencils, crayons, scissors, erasers, and so much more are quality products that kids can really use and they will last them quite awhile. I love the little whit board in the kits. I can write them reminders or just leave them a note telling them I love them. They can write themselves reminders for homework, activities and so many other things. The Blum School Gear Kits zipper completely around and the zipper is secure so they won't be losing pieces out of them. These have really helped with the back to school lists and the routines for my boys. They love them, I love them, and we will be buying these for the next school years to come too!
