This past Tuesday, I shared my Spotlight on Mom interview with Michelle Brandriss of NameBubbles with you. If you missed my post, click here to read it now -- http://www.inspiredbysavannah.com/2013/03/spotlight-on-mom-michelle-brandriss-of.html. Like I said on Tuesday, Michelle was kind enough to let my create personalized labels for Savannah to try out. I have to say the ordering process was easy. The only hard part was choosing from all the great designs and color options. I ended up choosing the penguin labels for Savannah in purple and had her first and last name put on them. I thought these would come in handy when the nice weather comes and we are at the park. I can't tell you how many times last year, that we would go to the park with the girls, only to find that a few of the kids would have the same colored sippy cups. And, the same thing would happen when we went to museums and indoor play centers. Not only did other kids have the same colored sippy cup, but a few times Savannah grabbed the wrong shoes, as other girls had the same Abby Cadabby shoes.
So, I have been searching for name labels for quite some time, and have invested around $100 in different brands, only to be disappointed each and every time. Either they didn't stick well, would smudge when I wrote on them, and/or weren't waterproof and would come off in the dishwasher or laundry. Knowing this, I was keeping an open mind when I was sent Michelle's labels for review. I didn't want to get too excited, only to be disappointed when they didn't hold up. But, after I watched a video she posted to YouTube that showed her labels in use, and how they didn't smudge, etc. I was eager to receive them and try them out.
As soon as Savannah saw them and saw the penguin, she wanted one. She thought they were stickers for her sticker book (or wall). But, then I told her it was to put on her toys, sippy cup and other personal items that we may mix up with other children's. Then, she brought me her sippy cup and asked me to put a penguin sticker on each side. Once the penguin NameBubbles sitckers were on her sippy cup, she smiled. Then, that afternoon, we took her sippy cup to our mommy and me meetup and Savannah couldn't wait to show it off. She kept telling the other kids that the sippy cup was hers, as it had her name on the label. :-)
Now that we have had these labels for over a month, I have really put them to the test, and have been pleased with how well they have held up. Even with constant washing in the sink and in the dishwasher, as well as the girls handling the sippy cups daily, the NameBubbles penguin stickers are keeping their shape and not wearing off at all. And, I can't tell you how many times I have received compliments from other moms who see these name labels on Savannah's belongings.
