We went for K’s P1 orientation recently, and one of the things that the principal emphasised during her talk to us, was to “label, label, label”. Because kids lose things. And the amount of stuff they find on an annual basis is simply staggering. So to minimise loss, “label, label, label!” We have taken her words to heart, and had a ton of fun in the process.
Whilst our generation of parents are very conscious not to label our kids, since we are told that saying “she’s shy”, or “so naughty!” might damage them for life, there’s no prohibition on labelling our child’s stuff!
Enter Child Label, a home-grown local brand founded by Daphne, who also writes at Mother’s Inc, one of the funniest and most honest family blogs in Singapore. Daphne generously sent over two packs of labels for K and B, after I let the little girls choose what designs they wanted. Here they are! Simply gorgeous. I particularly love how the names are in a matching colour to the rest of the design, instead of just black or white. 🙂
There were so many books, and some had surfaces that are particularly difficult to write on. So slap a label on it! For exercise books and work books, K wrote her own English and Mandarin names, since the teachers might prefer that.
Gone are the days when journal writing was done in a plain brown exercise book. Now there’s a fancy journal for all kids across primary schools!
Our Give Me Everything Pack came with a generous number of iron-ons as well, pictured below. Such pretty colour palettes!
I also appreciate the fact that there are a range of products to suit various budgets. From $15 for a pack of 42 cute circle sticker labels (my personal favourite – great for sticking on shoe insoles too), to $50 for the Give Me Everything Value Pack 130 labels (stickers and iron-ons), there’s something for everyone.
If you don’t need so many stickers per child, there’s also the Split Dual Name Pack, where you can have two different names in one packet for $20.
It’s the time of year when parents are preparing for the new school year. So whether your kid is entering childcare (all the more important to label since they might not be able to tell which is their stuff) or starting formal primary education, it’s a good time to get you some labels. These are so cute that I want to get me some labels!
