I can hardly believe that Zackary will be starting kindergarten in September. I remember the day he was born so well and it seems like only yesterday that I was celebrating those special milestones of babyhood. The thought of my wonderful boy heading off to kindergarten is as overwhelming as it is wonderful.
As emotional as the event will be, there are lots of practical considerations as well, and of course one of the biggest and most time consuming tasks involved in getting ready for school is labelling the many schools supplies and pieces of clothing that Zackary will be using. But thanks to Lovable Labels, when most parents are painstakingly writing their child’s name on the sides of pencils and crayons, I will be quickly applying my son’s beautiful and detailed personalized labels and then getting back to having fun with my kids!
Lovable Labels haa labels for everything from clothing to toothbrushes to footwear as well as some amazing combo packs. With so many children preparing to head off to summer camp in mere months, the company has just reintroduced a great Ultimate Camp Pack combo pack filled with all the labels your son or daughter will need to label their possessions and keep track of their treasures when at camp. I was thrilled when I was given a chance to review one of the Ultimate Camp Packs for myself.
I chose the Movin’ & Groovin’ theme for my Ultimate Camp Pack and when the labels arrived, I was so excited by the fun variety of labels the package contained. Each type of label was a different colour and featured a different mode of transportation making the full collection so fun and child-friendly! Zackary especially loved the two red Mini-Metal Tags for backpacks and luggage featuring green race cars that were included in the package, and my own personal favourite had to be the blue Peel n’ Stick Clothing Dots featuring cute yellow UFOs.
Zackary was so excited to see all the colours and pictures on the labels that he immediately started trying to convince me he should be allowed to stick them on every single one of his toys. I quickly vetoed that idea, but we did work together to pick out some different objects on which to apply the labels.
The Slimline labels were one of my favourite types of labels because they were the perfect long and thin size for writing utensils or for personal care items like toothbrushes. I loved the bright red labels with their tiny train icons and I decided to test one out on Zackary’s new toothbrush.
When a preschooler brushes his teeth, it’s a wet business, which is one of the reasons I like to test these convenient little labels this way. If a label can stay on through the daily soakings my son gives his toothbrush, I know it has the ability to stand up to anything. The Lovable Labels Slimline label proved it was more than equal to the task and after over a month of use, it still looks brand new.
Now that spring is finally here, Zackary’s rubber boots have come out of storage, so we tested a set of shoe labels on them. This was another situation where I knew the labels would get a very thorough trial, since many times Zackary’s boots seem to collect more water than they repel! The sweet red and blue labels printed with a sailboat weren’t affected by the water at all and looked so fun and appropriate in the bottom of his boots!
The everyday labels come in both a rectangle and a square shape and are good for everything from food storage containers to special toys to books. Zackary applied a few to the reusable containers in his lunch kit. I really liked how they looked on the containers and I was happy to learn that they were both dishwasher and microwave safe.
The Ultimate Camp Pack features three full sheets of Peel n’ Stick Clothing Dots so that kids heading off to an overnight camp this summer will be able to have every piece of clothing identified. I really enjoyed the ease of applying the stickers; I simply stuck them onto the care tag of a piece of clothing and I was done! The labels came in three different sizes, which made so much sense since some pieces of clothing have much larger tags. I have washed and dried the labelled clothing repeatedly and the labels are still in place and beautiful.
Lovable Labels also carries household labels, allergy labels and personalized stationary. The fun Ultimate Camp Pack combo pack is a great money-saving way to have a collection of labels for every product in your house. I love the cheerful and durable labels I received from Lovable Labels and even though Zackary is a little young for summer camp this year, I’ll still be using lots of the labels over the summer for our own personal camping trips.
Kids misplace their possessions; that’s just part of childhood. But thanks to Lovable Labels, clothing, toys and other items have a much better chance of finding their way back to their owner. Before your kids head out the door this summer, pick up an Ultimate Camp Pack from Lovable Labels and ensure your child brings their favourite things home again!
