I'll be the first to admit, when I heard of Name Bubbles for the first time I wasn't sure it was a product worth having. Of course, this was before I had children in school! I couldn't imagine how a single child could need sooo.....many.....labels. Labels for their shoes? Labels for their snack containers? Labels for their clothing? Really? Yes, really!
I was intrigued by their company and started following them on social media. Then, one day they had a giveaway going on, and I just happened to be the lucky winner! We designed our labels and submitted our order request and waited patiently for them to arrive in the mail.
My opinion was instantly changed! Name Bubbles made getting our children ready to start school so much easier. They wanted to take care of their things even more because they had designed their labels and were proud of them. I know their teachers appreciated having everything clearly labeled as well!
As someone with experience teaching little kids, I can tell you just how helpful Name Bubbles can be in the classroom. As a parent, you may not see how the label madness really matters, but believe me- it makes such a big difference!
I've had students with the same lunch boxes, water bottles, shoes- you name it! Trying to send home the right items with the right kids can be challenging. Some parents try to label items with a permanent marker (which doesn't look great), with some type of tape with marker (which eventually falls off), with home printed labels (which get wet and smear), or they skip labeling their child's items all together. If you look at any school's lost and found bin, you can see that many parents choose this route and in turn lose some expensive items.
When a student uses Name Bubbles, it makes it easy for a teacher to keep track of several students items at one time. Using Name Bubbles can help keep you from losing items you've spent your hard earned money on which makes it an investment that just makes sense.
Both of my children have the school labels pack which includes:
18 Small Rectangle Labels
16 Rectangle Labels
2 Big Rectangle Labels
4 Square Labels
8 Shoe Labels
28 Clothing Labels
They also sell labels specifically for those with food allergies that help alert others of your dietary needs that you can find here. I encourage you to check out Name Bubbles, subscribe to their newsletter, and get geared up for the upcoming school year!
*DISCLAIMER: I received one free set of labels to review and to allow me to share my honest opinions with my readers. I hope you enjoy this product as much as I do!
