Mabel's Labels: Review and Giveaway (Ends 2/14) CLOSED

Saturday, January 30, 2010 Posted by Dina N

If you have children, you know that every school, preschool, and daycare insist on having all kids' items properly labeled. Sometimes, you may choose not to label at your own risk. I learned my lesson last year when my daughter's brand-new - and still unlabeled - winter coat walked away and was never found, despite numerous visits to the lost-and-found bin at her school.

Prior to discovering companies such as Mabel's Labels, I used a permanent marker to write my kids' names on their clothing, bags, and other belongings. A messy, unreliable, and rather temporary solution - it turned out permanent markers did not always survive close encounters with the dishwasher, washer and drier. And trying to fit a name on the tiny clothing tags was a pain!

I first saw Mabel's Labels products online, and fell in love with their cute designs. Mabel's Labels is a Canadian company, founded by moms who were frustrated by the amount of stuff that left their houses, never to return. Sounds sooo familiar! So they decided to create fun and durable labels for the stuff kids lose.


Mabel's Labels are dishwasher, microwave and laundry safe. The labels are customized with a child’s name, favorite mix of colors and an icon (animal, symbol, etc.). The company's product line also includes personalized stationery products, ID wristbands and household labels.

I was excited to try Mabel's Labels newest addition - the LOL (Label Out Loud) labels! Gotta love the clever name. The LOL labels come in packs of 45, and are relatively large at 2-3/4" x 5/8". You can choose from 20 fabulous designs, each in beautiful color combinations. I customized them with my kids' names and a butterfly design.

When I received the labels, I could not wait to try them out! I love the bright, happy colors. The set comes in three color combinations - yellow, green, and pink background for the name, and pink, purple and blue background for the butterfly. Plus, there are bubbles in the background! My kids wanted to start labeling everything right away. The print quality is superb, and the labels stay put even after repeated washing and laundering. We used them on jackets, bags, sippy cups, lunch boxes, toys - you name it, we've labeled it! After three weeks of use, the labels still look brand new. The labels are UV resistant, microwave and dishwasher safe, and look great on my kids' stuff.

In addition to the LOL labels, we received some tag-mates. These are smaller labels that fit perfectly on  clothing care tags. They stick securely, and survived numerous washes. These labels can also be customized with a name up to 20 characters and an icon, and come in raspberry or blue.

Needless to say, I have retired the permanent marker as a labeling tool and plan to use Mabel's Labels from now on.

    I love the LOL labels. If I win, I would customize them with my son's first name and the initial of his last name, and with the Race Care Motif. These labels would be great for labeling all the stuff that go back and forth now that my son is in Preschool.
