Mabel's Labels Review

I recently had the chance to review a set of labels from Mabel's Labels. I love the motto "labels for the stuff kids lose!" Mabel's Labels is a great company that was started by moms and their product focus is for moms. After losing too many children's items themselves, they went in search of labels that would withstand the test of moms and time.

We got to try their Ultimate Back-To-School Combo. This deal is only available for a limited time, so be sure to take advantage of it now. The Ultimate Back-To-School Combo is $39.00 for a pack of 50 Tag-Mates, 40 Skinny-Minis, 16 Shoe Labels, 2 NEW Teeny Tags. This particular offer is only available through Sept. 25th.

The Tag-Mate labels are for the inside of clothing labels. I love the idea of this, because I had writing on clothes. These are especially handy for kids in daycare, preschool, school, etc, so they won't lose their clothing if it needed to be changed for some reason. The Tag-Mate labels are washable, so you don't have to worry about replacing them on the clothing. WONDERFUL! The only problem I see with these is we have several t-shirts that don't have labels on them. Some clothing companies have gone to label-free, in this case I'm not sure where to put the Tag-Mate.

The Skinny-Mini labels are more versatile. They can be used on bottles, sippy cups, pencils, toys, and many more things. They are dishwasher and microwave safe! These are small enough to fit on all the little things that your kids might lose.

Shoe labels are easy to use, and you won't have to worry about leaving a shoe behind somewhere. The Shoe Labels come with detailed instructions on how to apply them. You have to put a clear label (included) over top the label, but it's simple and easy to do. I think they're also great for restaurant play places and parks. You won't have to worry about your child mixing up their shoes with someone else's.

The Teeny Tags are nice little tags for backpacks, diaper bags and more. On their website, they even suggest these little tags for identification for runners and other athletes.

We liked all our labels and tags. They are great with their unique colors and icons. I let Zachariah choose the colors/icon he wanted, so we got the nature lover colors and the fire truck icon with his first and last name. I love this unique feature on these labels. Not only can you get it customized with your name, nickname, phone number, or whatever, but you can also get the image (from their list) that you want. When my son sees his labels with his name and icon, he'll know for sure they're his. And for younger children they can easily identify their unique icon and color.
Mabel's Labels has other types of labels too. There are stationery Mama cards. And household labels like cord control. I think my husband could use those at work (he works with computers). And Mabel's Labels also carries Kid Safety Products for traveling with children and children with allergies and other medical concerns - Allergy Alerts & My 411 Wristbands.

There are so many uses for Mabel's Labels. I'm sure that you'll find them fitting into your home quite nicely.

Buy It: Check out the Mabel's Labels website for all their pricing and purchasing options. They also have a promotion going on from Aug. 15 - Sept. 15 that if you spend $80, you will received a code for $25 to Mabel's Labels. Details can be found here.

Oh I see these types of things all the time lately, what a great idea for someone to pick up on! I couldn't see me using them right now however, Rachel goes through so many shoes and clothes, she literally has news shoes every 4 months. But what a great find for people who have wee ones in school or daycare!

We love Mabel's Labels--we use their allergy alerts on all of my daughter's school stuff.
