Congrats to Michelle- random.org picked #41 and you were comment #41!
As I mentioned in my last review, I am a type A personality. I love things to be organized and orderly. And I really love to label things. Is there a more beautiful sight than a cupboard with everything lined up and neatly labeled and put in order?
So, given my love of organization and labeling, I was so excited to have the chance to review a set of labels from Mabel's Labels, thanks to my involvement with the Product Review Place. I was sent the Ultimate Back to School Combo pack, which consists of 50 Tag-Mates, 40 Skinny-Minis, 16 Shoe Labels and 2 Teeny Tags. This combo pack is a special limited-time combo, only on sale until September 25, for $39.
I was really pleased with the quality of the labels I received- they are nicely made and are attractive and sturdy. The Tag-Mates are meant for labeling kids' clothing and adhere to clothing care tags with no ironing or sewing. Great for those jackets that kids leave behind on the school bus and playground. The Skinny-Minis are fabulous for labeling school supplies, dishes and sippy cups! I had stuck them on Ethan's sippy cups within 30 seconds of opening the package! The labels are dishwasher safe, which means there's no relabeling of your dishes every day for daycare or school- just apply and it stays put. The shoe labels are exactly what they sound like- labels that go inside your kids' shoes. I so wish we had had these when Ethan was attending daycare- we had to write his name inside all his shoes with a permanent marker, which was awkward and difficult to see. The daycare workers would have loved these big, bright stickers!
Not only are the labels useful, but they're cute. They come in a variety of colors, so you can pick what best suits your child's personality. And, in addition to your kid's name, the labels have an icon on them. I picked an airplane for Ethan's labels, since he loves airplanes.
In addition to the labels I reviewed, Mabel's Labels has lots of other items like "my 411 wristbands", which are disposable wristbands customized to include a child's name, parent's name, address and allergy information, "allergy alert", labels which can be applied to things like food containers and travel gear to remind people of a child's allergies and "bag tags", metal tags which are great for school bags and sporting equipment. And, they also make products which are great for adults, including the "neak freak combo", which has 50 bin labels, 16 canister labels and 56 spice labels. Seriously, people, I can hardly type that without exclamation points. It's seriously going to the top of my Christmas wish list.
I'm also happy to have had the chance to review these labels because Mabel's Labels is a company that was started by moms and is a company from Canada. As a mom to two dual citizens and the wife of a Canadian, I'm always happy to support Canadian companies!
