CSC Review and Giveaway: Mabel's Labels

This contest is now closed. Please check out our contests page for the most recent contests and giveaways.


I took Little AG to play at an indoor playground the other day, and it was one of those places where you set your kid's shoes in one of those shoe holders right inside the door -- along with the other 100 pairs of shoes from the other kids. Well, Little AG rarely wears shoes anyway, so I actually managed to leave the place and go to lunch and never realize we were missing them. When I went back to look for them, they were easy to spot among the other 100, because the bright purple labels inside of them clearly had Little AG's name printed on them, along with a sweet little butterfly.

Don't start thinking that I'm all clever-like, and that I had developed a way to keep track of her stuff, or that I had purchased some sort of special shoes for her with her name in them. Nope, it's much more simple than that. Mabel's Labels, a great company out of Canada, had shipped us a bevy of labels for everything under the sun. We have the multi-purpose labels as well, which we stuck on her sippy cups so that they wouldn't get mixed up at playdates. They have been through the dishwasher multiple times, and they have really held up. I like to say that they "take a lickin' and keep on stickin'". But, that's just me. It's ok, I revel in my cheesyness.

Mabel's Sticky Labels and Skinny-Minis™ can be used for toys, dishes, bottles and more. Shoe Labels are extra tough and fit nicely on the insole of boots, shoes and more. Bag Tags are sturdy metal tags that are perfect for labeling school bags, diaper bags and other luggage. Their labels are designed to deliver maximum durability - they will withstand the dishwasher, microwave and UV rays for years to come.


Win It! Mabel's Labels has graciously offered one lucky CSC reader a chance to win the Ultimate Back-to-School Combo Pack - ($39.00 value!) for a pack of 40 Skinny-Minis™, 50 Tag-Mates™, 16 Shoe Labels, and 2 Bag Tags. The winner can choose their color combination - True Blue: berry blue, ocean blue, sky blue. Juicy Citrus: orange, lemon, lime. Tickled Pink. Pack in Black

My 411 wristbands are awesome, I am always so paranoid of losing my daughter, this would give me a bit of peace of mind that she would be able to be found, because it would have me cell number on it!

The Iron-On Clothing Labels, definitely. With taking extra clothes to daycare and playgroups for those just-in-case situations, it'd be a great way to make sure they come back home with my daughter.

I was going to say Tag-Mates, which I love, but then I saw the new Backyardigans stuff. The stationery is great!!!

Jenn S. said...

I love the 411 Wristbands, especially the Artsy design.

Suzie said...

The 411 wristbands are brillliant! My kids are all in Elementary shool, but will they remember all the pertinent info in the midst of being lost at a theme park, for instance? THese are a great option for kids of all ages!

I like the return address labels in "buzz". The back to school pack is starting to seem like a necessity!

I want the curbside labels for sure! Its so tacky to just spray paint your house number on your trash can. Using these labels I'd have the most stylin trashcan around! Thanks. Charlotte

All neat stuff. I liked the iron ons and cord control. I would probably use those the most!

Aimee said...

I really like the 411 wristbands. My daughter has special needs and struggles with her speech, so it'd be great to have a wristband for her to wear when we go places where we could possibly get separated or even on field trips for school. Who doesn't love labels!!

Patty said...

Thank you for having this contest. I really appreciate it. I like the school pack.

I love a ton of those products, but I haven't seen the shoe labels before today. That is awesome, would be great for dance classes! The girls are always throwing around their shoes in between classes & they are so easy to mix up since they all wear the same type.
