Gaming has taken over the world — or at least our kids’ brains, same as it did when we were kids (ahem). But what our kids have that we didn’t have back in the day is such an amazing collection of cool gamer school supplies.

Whether they’re into classics like Pokemon and Mario, the ubiquitous Minecraft, or the stuff you probably don’t understand whatsoever (Five Nights at Freddy’s, anyone?) we’ve put together just a few of our favorite back-to-school goodies with gaming themes that our kids will adore.

Sorry, no FPS games. We’re parents, yo. Go to your cool aunt for that one.
