KinderCones, the modern versions of the German Schultüte, are now for sale as unique Back to School gifts at the grand opening of the newly expanded online web shop at the KinderCone site. Created and sold by Chicagoan Vivian Lie, KinderCones make lovely presents for children just entering first grade or for any kid returning to the schoolroom.
Decorated stiff paper cones that parents can stuff with Back to School supplies or tiny toys and treats, KinderCones are designed to get children excited and ready to go to school. (Read a full review of the history and function of Kindercones.) The cones and their felt tops come in a variety of festive color combinations using bright reds, blues, greens, yellows, oranges, and purples.
The line of KinderCones ready for sale at their online website now include the standard KinderCone designed specifically for incoming first graders (including a cone, a KinderCat journal, a Karli the Cat plush toy, 5 pencils, temporary tattoos, and a certificate), KinderCones for Everyone (or KFE that are suitable for schoolchildren of all levels, which come with a cone, 5 pencils, temporary tattoos, and a certificate), KinderCone minis (10-inch miniature versions that come in packs of four along with 8 pencils and 12 temporary tattoos), and a Craft MiniCone Party Pack (a pack of five 12-inch white MiniCones that can be decorated with stickers, crayons, and markers, and that come with pencils and temporary tattoos).
Better yet, for parents unsure of what toys and supplies to use to fill a KinderCone, the web shop also now sells Pelikano fountain pens (designed specifically for children just learning to write and offered in bright blue, green, yellow, and red), a 12-color Pelikan paint box with replaceable color pans for each block of watercolor paint, and an adorable set of 6 Pelikan Mouse Crayons (shaped like crayons to help young artists grip them correctly).

KinderCones can be restuffed and regifted year after year, starting a nice tradition in a family of excitement about the beginning of a new school year. Find them at their online web store.
