A few weeks ago, I received an email asking if I would like a chance to review Mabel's Label's Ultimate Back to School Combo!! My response? You bet I would!!
I won a set of Mabel's Labels in a giveaway at some point when Zachary was a baby, probably in 2008 or 2009, I would guess. Well, Zachary is now six and a half and his name sticker is still stuck firmly on the booster seat he used when he was a baby and a toddler - now my three-year-old is using that same seat!! Here's a picture of the label that has survived six years of kids, camp dining hall life, being washed (occasionally :) ), and moving through three different houses, not to mention the trips and vacations it has joined us on! :)
That should make it pretty clear why I would jump at the chance to review a new set of Mabel's Labels!! The Back to School Combo comes with several different kinds of labels that I didn't even know Mabel's had! The most fun part was picking out the colors/patterns and logos from ALL the adorable choices on the website! I ended up ordering our labels with the words 'Hart Family' so we could all use one set. :) The first kind, the Skinny-Minis, are dishwasher and microwave-safe! I stuck one of these on my coffee cup, because I tend to leave them at church...
And one on David's favorite new Lightning McQueen water bottle, which goes everywhere with us and has been through the dishwasher many times! :)
The second kind of labels included in the combo are called Tag Mates. They are intended to be applied to clothing tags and are washer and dryer safe! I put one of these on Natalie's favorite sweatshirt, and plan to use them on our coats and sweatshirts this winter! :) This sweatshirt has been washed a few times, and the sticker is still firmly in place. I also attached a Tag Mate to our beach bag and diaper bag, and to each of our beach towels!
Zachary started playing baseball this season, and I have put cute little Mabel's Labels on ALL of his baseball stuff!! :) I used a Tag Mate in his baseball hat! (Isn't it cute? I still can't believe he's old enough to be on a team!) At least he isn't old enough to tell me not to use the cute labels on his sports stuff! :)
And here is the rest of his baseball stuff! His glove got a Tag Mate, while his bat and batting helmet got a Skinny Mini each. :)
The other kind of labels included in the combo were called shoe labels, and are waterproof. They are designed to be stuck inside your child's shoes! Here is a pair of Zachary's shoes with the Hart Family shoe labels in them! These have been worn several times, and they are still perfectly attached to the shoes!
This combo also included two metal Teeny Tags with mini key rings attached! I put this on my key ring about three weeks ago, and it is not chipped or faded in the least. You could use this on your child's backpack if your kids go to school! :)
I just noticed that the Mabel's Labels Ultimate Back to School Combo is only available until September 30th, so you'd better rush over and grab one up now!! If you have older kids who might appreciate more 'sophisticated' designs, or you just want some labels for yourself, check out the Stylish Scholars Combo or any of other products on the Mabel's Labels site! :)
