When it's time for back to school, you usually have to do quite a bit of labeling of your kids' stuff and Lollipop Labels makes it a lot easier!
They offer dishwasher/microwaveable safe labels for water bottles, sippy cups, baby bottles, books, toys, eating utensils, lunch boxes, plates and bowls. You can use these labels on basically anything you would normally use a permanent marker to label things with. "These labels will stick to plastic, glass, metal, paper, cardboard, wood and virtually anything you want to stick them to." (Therefore, keep them away from your kids!) :)
Marcy started making these labels because she found that they really helped keep her life more organized and her belongings with her. Most of her mommy friends used the same bottles, cups, toys, etc. By labeling her son's things, she was able to quickly and easily identify his belongings.
Personally, I REALLY love our new labels from Lollipop Labels! They are super cute, dishwasher safe AND I got some for my sweet Caleb who has a peanut allergy. That way it would be a visual reminder for other caretakers that he has this life-threatening allergy. I think these labels are great too because previously, I would write my kids' name in permanent marker on their sippy cups and after one wash in the dishwasher it was gone.
It was annoying if I was in a hurry for church and had to re-write my child's name on his cup or completely forgot altogether, only to arrive at church without his name on there.
Here's how Caleb's turned out (I cut off his last name for safety.)
These labels are great for school or sports teams too that your child might be on when everything has to be labeled (think baseball mit, glove, sports bottle, etc.)
And, so far, so good for standing the test of dishwasher safe durability. Since I've only had mine a few weeks, I asked Marcy, one of the owners of Lollipop Labels, how long these labels last...She said she's been using some of hers daily for 7-8 months and they are still looking great!
Check out these other adorable labels that The Lollipop Label Shop carries:
Pacifier Labels (what a GREAT idea!!!!)
And, for your labels you can choose an image, font, color and up to 20 letters (including spaces) of your choice.
I also think labels like these would make GREAT baby shower gifts. I know that I would have loved to received something like this (or a gift certificate to the shop if gender or name aren't yet known.)!
Lollipop Labels also offer iron-on labels, shoe labels and clothing tag labels!
