Back at the beginning of February, my son finally had his long awaited first day of preschool. Even though he loves it and we're thrilled for him to be in the class, it's been an adjustment for all of us. The biggest thing for me to get used to isn't actually that Ethan goes to preschool- it's that he gets to school and then back to home on a school bus. That's right, every morning I take my tiny 3 1/2 year old out to a yellow school bus, strap him in to the harness and send him off.
You better believe that I have my kid labeled from head to toe (and all his accessories as well) with his name. But I hadn't come up with a good way to include my contact information in my labels, in a way that he won't lose or destroy. So you'd better believe I was beyond thrilled when I found out that I was going to get to review Zippies- a product that is just what I was looking for!
That's one of the Zippies- one named Chip. As you can see, Zippies are a fun, colorful way to easily identify your kids' items. The adjustable elastic cord means you can use the Zippies on lots of things- stuffed animals, water bottles- anything that you can fit the cord around. In the middle, there's a nice, strong metal clip that you can use to put Zippies on backpacks, coats, luggage, key chains... whatever you want to identify!
The Zippies are all bright and colorful and my kids love them. I told them they could each pick out two from the ones we received for review, and they had a tough time picking, since they liked them all. As for me, I love how easy Zippies make it for me to label my kids' things- and to label my kids themselves! I wrote my kids' names and my phone number on the back of their Zippies and attached the Zippies to their coats. Identity/contact info problem solved!
