If you are a parent, you’d know how it is with little children – they can be very upset when they lose something or when someone accidentally takes their stuff. The best thing we can do as parents to prevent such unnecessary unfortunate incidents is to make sure that their belongings are labelled clearly so that in the event that they are misplaced in a familiar environment (such as in school), at least there’s a chance of getting the lost items back.
When Stickerkid.com offered to send some stickers my way for the kids, I was really excited because I’ve heard so much about their stickers! (Note: I’ve blurred out their full names so it’s nothing to do with the quality of the printing)
To be honest, I’ve made several name stickers for my kids before – the usual ones that you see being sold on online platforms. Those are cute, no doubt, but the quality is a far cry from Stickerkid.com’s labels.
I had the opportunity to test out the durability of the stickers from Stickerkid.com when my kids were so excited to see the stickers that they used them as… bandages. Yes, they wound quite a few pieces around their fingers because the stickers appeared at a time when they were pretending to be injured… and when I finally discovered their deed, those few pieces of stickers were more or less crushed into a ball. Instead of just chucking them away (which would really make my heart ache for these are really super good quality stickers!), I decided to try to unfurl those stickers and see if they would still stick.
And stick they did.
And there were no loose corners or anything like that – I just straightened out the sticker and stuck it on their storybooks and voila, they stuck so well and neatly that you’d never be able to tell that they were crushed into a tiny ball. I discovered one more tiny ball of sticker the next day and straightened it out too onto a book and it still worked perfectly. 😀
After the bandaging incident, I decided that I should have a say in where those stickers go and so, well, the stickers at least found their rightful homes.
And the shoe stickers are really nifty! You even have the option to add phone numbers on the stickers in case the kids ever get lost.
The iron-on labels also adhere perfectly (as long as you don’t stick them on very elastic areas such as the top of socks or t-shirt collar) –
I even ironed one on her art bag:
You can customise each of the labels to your liking – the type, size, colour of the font, the cartoon design, the background colour etc. The only limitation as of now is that they don’t come in Chinese characters so no Chinese names on the labels!
