The folks over at Oliver's Labels were kind enough to send me a few labels for review.The labels are designed to be attached to kids clothing, shoes, toys, dishes, cups or what-have-you. I like the labels very much. The labels are personalised with the child's name and are waterproof and quite durable. I received labels for shoes,cups or toys and clothing. I put two labels in a pair of shoes belonging to a four year old. I put labels in some of her clothing. I also applied them to a dish and a cup.
After a couple of weeks, the labels are hanging tough inside the shoes. No wear or peeling is evident. The labels I put to the toys have held up well too. I was a little skeptical about the labels I placed on items that would be washed. But they seem to be holding up rather well. Again, I have seen no evidence of peeling, fading or scuff marks. I can honestly say these labels are waterproof, dishwasher and laundry safe.
Not only are the labels colorful and fun, but they have a great feature I find quite interesting. Printed on the label with the child's name is a code that is used to get the item back to it's owner if it is ever lost.
I work at a small theme park geared toward the 3-9 year old set. I find a lot of shoes, cups and toys that have been left behind. While I send everything I find to the lost and found department, there is only one way a lost toy or shoe can be reunited with its owner.The parent has to call us and see if their item actually showed up in lost and found. With the code printed on the label, a finder can let the fine folks at Oliver's Labels know the item was found. Oliver's labels will then alert the family and help arrange to get the toy or shoe or cup back to it's rightful owner. I bet this could all take place before the child or mom even realises the thing has gone missing.
Check out these rough and tumble labels over at oliverslabels.com. Once there you can design your label and customize it the way you like. The original labels are priced very nicely at just under 50 cents each. I like this price because it seems the labels will last a very long time and may never need to be replaced.
