Back to School: Trendy items to help your child feel cool at school

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - On WECT News First at Four Friday, we checked out some of the most popular school supplies.

David Matrisciano from Staples in Wilmington joined us on the show.

He showed off items with trendy and playful animal patterns, including sharks and flamingos.

Another trend for back-to-school that Matrisciano highlighted: emojis. He said you will find them on items like binders, notebooks and Bluetooth speakers.
