It’s that time of year again! Parents are happy to have to no longer pay for summer camp and kids get to be reunited with some of their favorite classmates. Oh and of course the great education and school lunches that comes with it all.

Even if you’re not a parent, this time of year affects you. Try going to a store the day before the new school year begins. It’s a scene very similar to Valentine’s Day. People scramble for what’s left over to give someone.

But alas the first day of school arrives and hopefully the kiddies have all of the supplies they need and clothes to help them feel good starting the new year. For the extreme couponers, the commercials from different stores or product manufacturers do not faze them. For others, the commercials provide some sort of branding reminder of where to go or what to consider purchasing to “help make the kids’ year successful or cool.”

Below are a few of our favorite commercials from the past and even more recently aired. Take a look at them. Let us know which ones you like or others that didn’t make the list.

Target – Retro (unsure of year)


Staples – Most Wonderful Time of Year


Old Navy – Desk Til Dawn Horror


Footlocker – Sneaker Thing


VW Passat


K-mart – The Walk
