Teen and Tweens love shopping at @FiveBelow and parents love the prices! #shop5B @SheSpeaksUp #sponsored

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Five Below.


Parents of Tweens know that sometimes shopping with them can be a bear.   They  think they are too cool to shop in the kiddie section, but too young to hit the adult areas of stores.   That is why we love Five Below.  It is a total Tween friendly zone from lip gloss to wacky shirts to fun locker decor, they have it all! 

If your kids are dying to spend that birthday money, allowance money, etc, then why not take them to Five Below, everything is $1 to $5, or $5 and below.  This is the store, that I don't say "no" to, when they ask if they can get something, it is a "yes".  I personally love the low prices and that everything in stock in trendy and relevant to current trends and fads.  You are getting high quality items that are at affordable prices!


My little tween is on a traveling soccer team and we are always looking for the perfect hair band to keep her flyaways out of her face.   We found M Wrap and M Tape at Five Below for only $3 each!    The M Wrap is perfect to tear off and tie around your head as a head band.  They has tons of colors to choose from and even some funky styles.  Her team is yellow and blue, so of course we picked up the yellow M Wrap.  The M Tape is more for keeping items secure with a tape aspect.  So great to wrap around laces on your cleats to keep them from coming untied!


Calling all Minion/Despicable Me™ Fans!  Five Below has a section dedicated to you!  My son found some of the coveted MegaBlock Mystery Minion Boxes while he was there.

My daughter picked up a seven pack of Minion Lip-gloss.  When I asked what she thought she was going to do with seven lip-glosses, she said they were for her birthday party.  She then explained, she knew she would have 6 girls over for her sleepover and she would keep one and give the rest to her guests as party favors!

Star Wars™: The Force Awakens may not be in theaters until December, but now is the time to pick up merchandise and get your Star Wars fan geeked out with cool blankets, lunchboxes, posters, key chains and so much more!

Still on the topic of licensed character and products, you can find a large array of them at Five Below.  If you have a Frozen fan, Lego fan, Sponge Bob fan or even Transformer fan, they have something for you there!  My son picked up some super cool Transformer figurines for $5.  


Party Planning is made easy at Five Below!   Now only do they offer paper products and wrapping paper, but fun items to make your party pop!  They had fun string of light, disco balls, items for goodie bags and more.

My daughter is having a candy bar at her party next month, so it was fun to pick up some unique candy that you don't see elsewhere at Five Below!  We are planning a trip to Universal this winter, so if was a must to pick up some of the Harry Potter gummies and chocolate frogs!

Funky socks...need I say more?  My daughter is a HUGE funky sock fan.  So we are always buying short socks, long socks, slippers and more.  Now it is a signature gift of hers as well.  She always likes to give her friends a pair of funky socks for their birthday or Christmas gifts!

Some of the items we purchase were: lanyards (traveling to Universal this winter and need them to hold our park tickets), soccer bracelet, M wrap and M tape for soccer, flashlight (hubby had to take part in the shopping trip), candy, mirrored ball for birthday party, funky socks for gifts, toys and of course  glow in the dark bracelets (for birthday party and drive in movie fun).

Living in Ohio, we are fortunate to still have drive-in movie theaters.  So we also hit up Five Below for our snack and candy needs.  It helps to save some money!  We also love getting glow sticks from them.  You can get so many glow sticks and they keep the kids entertained while dusk is setting in at the drive in!
The staff is warm and friendly at Five Below.  You are always greeted when you walk in and they say goodbye and thanks for shopping when you leave.  There is always someone there if you need help too.

Have a fun time shopping with your Teens and Tweens at Five Below.  They will get the items they love and have been wanting and you will love how much you save!
