As Big L is now coming to the end of year 2 I am fairly well-versed in lost property! We have got through several ties, jumpers, water bottles. You name it at some point we have had to replace it! I was really happy when Stikets asked me to review their name labels.
When he first started at pre-school I had grand ideas about the fabric name labels like the ones I had when I was a kid. I bought some and (my mum) sewed them in to his coat etc. Only for them to fray very shortly afterwards. I got fed up and resorted to writing on his garments with a
laundry marker biro. That was OK but it didn’t stand out (and washed off) which I didn’t realise until we lost a jumper…and a brand new PE t-shirt *sigh*.
I had seen the iron-on name labels but always forgot to order them in time for the new year so ended up hurriedly writing names on clothes. I finally got my act together when Stikets asked me to review their Basic Pack.
The Basic Pack consists of 142 labels as follows:
- 48 small Iron-On Clothing Labels
- 82 name stickers for objects (36 minis, 24 small, 20 medium, 4 big)
- 8 shoe labels (4 pairs of shoes)
- 2 luggage tags
It’s great value as you save 40% by buying it as a pack rather than purchasing separately.
I was really impressed by the number of different characters, backgrounds and so on you could choose to have on your labels. The addition of a phone number is great for items that are more easily lost or of a high value. The iron-on labels are really simple and bond to the clothes really well too!
As Big L is nearly 7 I opted for a star on his, but Little L obviously shares the same initial so I can use them for him when he starts pre-school too (I’m not just a face you know!). I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and will buy them again should the need arise.
I am really pleased to be able to offer one reader the chance to win a basic pack of Stikets worth £19.95. In order to be in with a chance of winning please enter via Gleam:
