Going back to school as a kid after summer break was always bittersweet. On one hand, it was always sad to leave vacations and lazy pool days, but on the other hand, you got to go back-to-school shopping for things you kind of needed, but mostly just wanted to impress your judgy peers. While new clothes and shoes were always exciting, the best part of back-to-school shopping was for school supplies. While this may sound boring to you, it was actually the best for one reason: Lisa Frank.
The coolest girls had every tie-dyed school supply with animated cats adorning every pencil, agenda, and binder, and honestly, nothing made you feel more cool. Unfortunately, we don’t really get that excited about back-to-school shopping anymore, because who likes spending $600 on textbooks every semester? However, you can get that excited, little kid feeling again because Lisa Frank is back, this time for the adults that shopped for her products as kids. We’re also getting something infinitely better than trapper keepers because Lisa Frank has just announced her adult coloring books.
In the trend of today’s adult coloring books, you’ll see the Lisa Frank drawings you know and love from your childhood redesigned with intricate levels of detail perfect for wine nights and splurging on a new set of colored pencils. You also won’t have to wait long for the purchase you never knew you were waiting for, because they’ll be available beginning next month at Dollar General stores, just in time for you to pick one up to procrastinate your schoolwork in the fall. Put on some Backstreet Boys, break out your chokers, and get to coloring, because the ’90s are officially back..
