Mabel’s Labels is a Canadian-based company which makes quality, durable labels for your children’s clothing. I have used them for years: shoe labels on my boys’ shoes, sticky labels on bottles, lunch containers, and school books; bag tags on backpacks, lunch bags and pencil cases; clothing labels on – that’s right, clothes.
What I really love about Mabel’s products is they stay on. Sticky labels are dishwasher and microwave-safe, and tag-mates (sticky clothing labels) and iron-on labels stay on in the washer and dryer. I’ve had mom-friends try to peel sticky labels off water bottles and comment “Oh, those are good” when they can’t, and then proceed to order their own. Our swim school uses Mabel’s waterproof and UV resistant Classic Sticky labels on its flutter boards, and they stand up to both the sun and the chlorine; our tagmates do the same thing on our boys’ goggles.
The other thing I love about Mabel’s Labels is that your child’s name is as visible as you make it. One year, my then 6 year old lost one shoe at school and, instead of finding it, he lost the other the following day. We went through 14 classrooms of stinky shoes bins; his shoes stood out in the two bins that they were in because of the clearly labelled name inside, and, boy, was my nose relieved. Three weeks ago, a “Lost and Found Mom” grabbed me at school to give me my now 9 year old son’s hat; again, his lost clothing was returned because it was labelled with a Tag-mate.
Believe it or not, I even label some of my own things now: my glass case, cell phone, agenda, camera – things that I might put down somewhere at work and forget to pick up.
I could write on and on about how wonderful Mabel’s Labels products are but I won’t. Instead, head over to Mabel’s Labels and look around for yourself. Then, come back and enter my giveaway.
