#BacktoSchool with Zippies: Review and #Giveaway CLOSED

Friday, September 09, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Zippies are cute round characters that help parents and children keep track of kids' stuff. They can be attached to children belongings - water bottles, lunch boxes, luggage, backpacks, jackets, and bicycles. Kids can even wear them on a chain as a necklace. Zippies can teach children the importance of being responsible for their things. They also help prevent the spread of germs by identifying identical objects such as water bottles.

The Zippies can be used also as ID tags. They are made of flexible rubber-like material and can be attached in three different ways. Each tag has an animal character on one side and space to write down a name and phone number on the other. I like having the peace of mind that our emergency contact information (last name and parent’s phone number) is with my kids at all times. Unlike labels, the Zippies can be taken off and reused multiple times.

My daughter is old enough to memorize phone numbers, so we wrote her name on the Zippies mainly to identify her backpack, lunch bag and jacket at school. One Zippie hangs on her bike and another on her scooter. She liked the idea of having a cool Zippie necklace with her favorite, Kayla.

The Zippies are available as 10 adorable characters that are fun to use and collect. Each of them has a name and a different personality. We love Tazmo the Tiger, Faina the Leaping Frog, and Flops the Bunny. Zippies - "the pals that hang around" - are perfect for back to school, on vacation and anytime in between.

Zippies sell for $4.98 each (currently on sale for $3.99 each with free shipping) or $39.99 for the entire limited-edition first series. Right now, the 10-piece collection is on sale for $29.95! A set of 5 is on sale for $15.95. Zippies can be ordered online at www.zippiesfun.com and found at select retailers.

The Giveaway
One lucky U.S. reader will win the entire Zippies collection (ARV $40)!
