little things :: child label review

as we're planning to put blake in playschool soon, i started looking around for cute labels for his little things! after searching high and low, i found one online that sold me labels and also sucked me into personalized bottles, name puzzles, the full works... and on top of that, it came with hefty international shipping charges. 


so when child label offered to send blake a "give me everything" pack, i was beyond excited! 


aren't they adorable? 

the colors are vibrant and it looks so legit to have his name on stickers!! it was a no brainer to pick the "vrooom" design for that transportation-loving kid of mine. it also came at the perfect time because he just added "bike" and "plane" to his vocabulary, so he had a fun time identifying them as i labelled! 


i started labelling toys in his sand/water play kit!


little champy medal that we give him when he's well-behaved!! 


and then i got distracted ...


and labelled his favorite boots!! 

after a few easy successes, i ambitiously decided to work on his picnic mat. and for the undomesticated people like myself, iron-on labels are attached on using *doh* a HOT iron. its dead easy to use... just press a medium to hot iron onto the sticker while its pressed onto your fabric/whatever you're labelling and in about 10 seconds, its done. easy peasy...

but in about 3 seconds after i press the hot iron on, the (recyclable) fabric on his picnic mat started to melt! PANIC!!! and of course everyone else knew that you're not meant to use heat on recyclable fabrics!! so not wanting to waste my half-ironed label, i pressed it on a scrap piece of cotton fabric and made a button out of it...


not too shabby, right? 


and after a few days of sand, sea-water and rough and tumble play, our labels are still fabulous and sticky as ever!! 


we are loving our labels and i'll be getting a few sets of them as gifts for his little friends as they all start to go to kiddie school!!

  7. Hi Zhing,

    I would love some Chinese Name Sticker Labels in Tiny Dancer for my little girl - it would also help her to recognize Chinese characters so win-win :) Living in Canada, it is near impossible to find anyone who does such adorable labels in Chinese too!
    Thanks and love,

  17. My favorite is the "Girl Patterns".
    Embarrassingly enough, it would be for myself. But hey, who said name stickers are only for kids. Adults can find great use for them too! (like... office stationeries?) :p

  25. Labels are great for keeping our family organized. The labels for school can be used on all kinds of things such as school bags, clothing, lunch boxes and more. If the children deposit their stuff in the same room at school, they will totally forget which one is theirs.
