Since I tried my little sample pack of the Mabel’s Labels that work on clothes and plasticky bottles and food containers, I have not looked back. I wasn’t sure that I would really like these things… in fact, I’ve tried a fair number of home-grown substitutions.
Three reasons to love them:
- Each boy has a symbol so that even pre-readers can find their stuff: Milo is a little airplane and Holden is a little dog (sad but true)
- Dishwasher safe. Over and over… in a way that my Sharpies are not and my contraband label-maker labels (from a previous company long since disbanded) don’t seem to be.
- Slurp-resistant. Most importantly, they survived the loving but incredibly intense slurps of a nine-month old on his naptime lovey. This was the area in which I didn’t want to take any chances.
This Thursday only, Mabel is celebrating a fifth birthday with a special promotion: Orders placed between 12:00am and 11:59pm EDT on Thursday March 27th will be shipped with a coupon for free Sticky Labels, the original product that started it all.
The good folks at Mabel’s Labels sent us a sample of their product four months ago. I would not say I loved it if I hadn’t thoroughly tested it.
