Last summer of 2008 when the family went to mall to buy my kids' school stuff, I brought with me my daughter. She is kind of choosy on her things so to avoid any trouble I let her choose for the notebooks. We do the buying in a bookstore located inside a mall for more convenience. The things are grouped in order so we did not find it hard to look for notebooks and compare those that are available. She picked these 80 leaves notebooks with different pictures of Little Pony. The My Little Pony writing notebook by Orions already has plastic cover, very colorful design and stapled twice. The paper is smooth and has Page and Date content on the upper right corner. The cover can also be detached from its plastic cover easily if there's anything to write or paste on the front cover. It also has a red line on every page and overall I think it will serve my daughter's needs.
We bought 12 pieces of that and this coming school year 2009-2010 we will be looking for the same brand of notebooks.
