Editor's Review: Mabel's Labels
Written by Karen Logan   

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Mabel’s Labels. I received a voucher to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Next month is the month my mom takes off to treat all her grandkids for a week of fun at her house. For my nieces and nephews, it’s been a summer tradition for the past 15 years, and now that I have kids of my own, mine participate too. That’s about 12 little ones in all (and yes, it was Grandma’s idea)! While I look forward to my one-week “vacation from the kids” every summer, I DO NOT look forward to having them return home with less than what they left with. With everyone’s sleeping bags, clothes, pajamas, socks, shoes, stuffed animals, video games, hair stuff, etc. strewn all over the place, it’s easy for things to get lost. That’s why I decided to use Mabel’s Labels to keep track of everything this year. All of my kiddos items will be labeled, so there will be no question about “Whose is this?” when it’s time to pack up. Also, having things labeled will allow my mom to help the younger ones avoid mix-ups and lost items.

 

Although I’ve used Mabel’s Labels in the past, to facilitate my review of the product this month I was able to customize and receive a Mabel's Labels Limited Edition Camp Label pack – a Mabel’s Labels product designed specifically for campers to keep track of their belongings.  The process of ordering online was super easy. It literally took only a couple of minutes and I was done. I knew what the pack was going to include, but I was still surprised when I physically got the items from the mail and saw how many shiny, neat labels it really amounted to.

The Camp Label pack included:

·                     10 Personalized Name Stickers: 70mm x 16mm (2-3/4" x 5/8")

·                     24 Mini Custom Name Stickers: 38mm x 8mm (1-1/2" x 5/16")

·                     8 Custom Shoe Stickers: 33mm (1.3")

·                     50 Tag Mates™ Stick On Clothing Labels: 21mm x 10mm (13/16" x 3/8")

·                     2 Personalized Bag Tags: 57mm x 32mm (2-1/4" x 1-1/4")

I even received a bonus set  of five fun postcards (available while supplies last).

I’ll be ordering 3 more packs for the other 3 kiddos, but I used this initial pack to help keep up with my 1-year-old’s stuff. She’s too young to keep up with her own stuff, and having her items labeled will help my mom out tremendously. Here’s what we’re labeling:

  • Diaper bag and busy bag – The 2 durable personalized bag tags are GREAT for this.
  • Everything in her diaper bag:  sippy cups, snacks, hairbrush, bag of wipes, and shoes. (Great for her week at Grandmas, but also perfect for the church nursery and the YMCA child watch).
  • Everything in her busy bag – toys, books, and stuffed animals.
  • Suitcase and everything in it – clothes, socks, shoes, blankets... oh boy!

 

In the past, I’ve used  permanent markers to label my kids’ items, but that has proved to be a BAD idea! We’re a household of hand-me-downs, so on any given day, my 5-year-old is using a lunch bag that has her 9-year-old’s sister’s name permanently etched on it, or the 1-year-old is wearing shoes that has her 5-year-old’s sister’s name written in them. It’s confusing! Mabel’s Labels are the way to go. They’re 100% guaranteed and safe to use in the dishwasher, laundry, and microwave. What’s more, peeling and sticking a label is SO much better than writing your child’s name several dozen times. And of course, the labels can include the phone number (mine does), so if anything is left behind, the person in charge of lost items can easy reach you.
