Yoobi – SoCal’s Awesome New School Supply Store

Yoobi Store in the Westfield Santa Anita Mall

this past weekend, the boys and i took a trip to Westfield’s Santa Anita Mall in Arcadia to check out Yoobi’s first-ever retail location. our family has been big fans of the school supply company, since they first launched in June 2014. we love that they give back to classrooms in need across the U.S.! Yoobi, pronounced “you-be,” means “one for you, one for me.” there are many kids in the U.S. that don’t have access to basic school supplies, unless teachers pay for them out of their own pocket – typically spending nearly $500 each. Yoobi doesn’t think that’s right, so their goal is to ensure that one day, all kids in need have access to fundamental tools for learning.

for every Yoobi item you purchase, 
a Yoobi item will be donated to a classroom in need, right here in the U.S.!

this is one of the reasons we LOVE Yoobi! they really make a difference in the lives of children and teachers through their give mission. until now, you could only buy this brand find Yoobi online or at Target stores, so i partnered with Yoobi to get the word out about this AWESOME new store that brings the Yoobi experience to life!

Westfield Santa Anita Mall Yoobi Store

just a short drive from Los Angeles and Orange County, the store features a hyper-localized giveback component – turning everyday shoppers into local change-makers and community builders. for every item purchased in this store, Yoobi will donate an item to a classroom in need WITHIN a ten mile radius! just in time for back-to-school shopping, we can all feel good about helping schools in our own communities.

  9. Soncie says

    Holey-moley!!! This is school supplies heaven!

  10. Michelle says

    We love yoobi!!! We try to get as many things as we can, but I love the pencils and paint kit. The pencil colors give that extra flare that other #2 pencils don’t have, and my kids say they sharpen and write well too. The led doesn’t break like many other pencils. Great products!

  11. Jenn Garner says

    So much to take in at one time. Can’t wait to look at their website . I love all the different colored pencils. This is a great place to buy from to get my little first grader excited for school.

  12. I’ve never been there before but I’m loving the awesome spiral notebooks! So many cute designs to choose from!

  13. Becca says

    I pretty much love everything from yoobi, like the bright colors, but I love the Pencil pouches because of the fuzzies and how much it can fit in it! It’s very handy!

  14. Lizzy says

    My favorite product from Yoobi are definitely the gel pens!! Nothing is better than color coding all of my notes and assignments in my agenda with some super fun, bright colors! It helps keep me super organized. Yoobi is such a great company with their colorful products and their mission to help schools in the U.S.!

  15. Shana says

    There isn’t anything from Yoobi I don’t like… I Love it all. Their products are great quality and even my 8th grader (boy) has picked every color for his back to school pack. He wants to promo his goods to teachers to get them on their desks so it helps everyone who’s needs it. He tells me “mom you know the more we buy the more we give…” Sad Puppy dog face… Really?! I’m a sucker! We shopped and shopped. I’ve always have a reason to shop Yopbi. Thanks Yoobi and everyone who keeps its going!

  16. Surbhi Kasbaum says

    Love the Yoobi cat ruler! kitty kute! 🙂

  21. Cristy Johnson says

    Love all the bright colors! The backpacks are my fav.

  22. Miriam Eufracio says

    I’ve never have shop there, but looking at your blog im in love with it all and im sure my girls would too. I have five kids, one being special needs and the thought of school supplies is out of the question especially this year since we lost it all in house fire. Seeing this amazing opportunity I had to comment and hope I am the one randomly selected. Good luck to all of you moms!

  23. nicole says

    I had never heard of Yoobi until my son picked out some of their glue sticks at a target last week. I’m so excited to hear about what they’re doing in our communities and we will definitely be shopping at Yoobi often!

  24. Debi M says

    What I like is you can buy the same item but a different color so everyone knows which one is theirs. Love all the colors and there are so many products. And the company gives back, win win for all.

  25. Denise Taylor-Dennis says

    The back packs look great.

  26. Ileana says

    I love all their products. What I truly love is being able to find everyone’s favorite colors in one place!

  27. My kids love the glue sticks, but their favorite item is the pencil sharpeners!

  28. My kiddos and I are super excited to learn that we have a Yoobi store so close to home. I personally love the color coordinated desk items, tape dispensers, scissors, etc., to match my company brand. My kids love that they can pick and choose just like kids in a (healthy) candy store! We are excited to come school shopping, and would love to win $100 towards our shopping spree. From my 3rd & 4th graders, up to my high school junior, and me (Mommy), we look forward to visiting soon and helping to make an impact on children in need in the U.S. My heart is happy and we plan to share this colorful news with all of our friends, and invite them to shop with us!

  29. How fun are these colors! Would love to have my 2nd grader try them out! She would just swoon over the fun erasers!

  41. Julie G. says

    This store kind of reminds me a little of Sanrio for school school supplies! ha I LOVE school supplies so much. I even end up buying stuff for myself, and haven’t been in school for years! It’s my favorite part of back to school shopping with my kids, and could easily see us going crazy in this store! I think I too would like the pen section the best. How fun to individually pick out the pens/pencils you want most! Thank you for this opportunity,. and thank you even more for sharing your awesome discovery!

  42. Vanessa says

    I love the Yoobi glue sticks because they’re in the shape of a triangular prism, so they don’t roll off the desktop!
