Space Ships, Spiders, Scary Pirates, & Soccer - A Stuck on You review & GIVEAWAY!

As well as being a ceramic artist, I'm also a busy Mama. I have 3 wonderful children so was thrilled to be picked to review the following amazing products from 
Stuck on You & Penny Scallan Design.

  My boys chose some Pirates, Space Ships, Soccer balls & other icons to decorate their  0-5 pack & 5+ Pack labels & stickers from Stuck on you & my daughter chose a beautiful tree design for her Red Artist Series lunchbox. In the labels packs we got Name labels, shoe labels, clothing labels, & a bag tag - all in fabulous bright colours, different sizes and shapes and fun personalized designs.


And You can WIN some of these great products so read on...

When my 6 year old saw his labels from his 0-5 pack he was more than chuffed! (Ever since we ordered them together he was chomping at the bit to get them in the mail - and I let him make ALL the choices!!) So when they arrived he wanted to stick them on everything. "Oh wow, awesome!" I think his response was. He picked his favourite blue colour and got sticking. We'll get to the rest of his designs later.

Even on his camping cup!

And it was quite fun choosing colours and icons with my 2 3/4 yr old for his 5+ pack (takes you from kindy/pre-school through to school) He had no problem picking the Soccer ball for his bag tag, with a firm yes or no when clicking through the appealing illustrations. 

Stuck on You make it very easy to order with a live preview of your child's name on the screen - Genuis I say! Kids also get a kick out seeing their name on screen as well.

I love that the shoe stickers have been designed for little people's feet with a much smaller sticker than the one for my 6yr old's pack. My 2 3/4 yr old adorned his boots with a green & red sticker. He chose to mix it up & we put the stickers closer to the top so they are easy to spot for him. (I know they probably work best at the bottom so well try this out)

They fit perfectly in his little shoes.

These boots are made for walking and that's just what they'll do... one of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
    

**Disclaimer... its a bit wobbly and it's my first ever movie ever made. Oh, and turn the sound on **


He also LOVES his Soccer ball bag tag and other labels. They have been perfect to use on his new pre school lunch box & drink bottle.
  


He also chose trains & stars for his labels for a bit of variety. He thinks his Choo choo stickers are pretty cool.



Little labels for little hands.


And what boy doesn't like Pirates?? 
Straight away he was drawn to the skull and cross bones and it matched his black bag perfectly!

Shiny new shoes get shiny new stickers!


The iron on clothing labels are also fabulous! Great when labeling his PE uniform as its the same size as his sisters, and they definitely don't want them being mixed up! Easy to apply and they aren't budging after several washes.

Gorgeous illustrations too. My creative daughter chose her design from The Artist Series lunch boxes - they have a different selection of equally beautiful designs than the first selection. Made from durable poly canvas with the name illustration printed ONTO the lunchbox.

This is still looking brand new after 2 weeks of use of being dragged about the playground at school and even on an easter holiday road trip.
The high quality lunch box also has 2 pockets! On the inside there is an elasticated mesh pocket, great for popping in raisin packets or cheese slices or teaspoons... or even a flat cooler block if you have one. And there is a pocket on the outside front with a magnetic enclosure which I have been popping in a paper towel for my daughter to use on yoghurt day or any other day! (even fits a banana) The lining is water repellant and super easy to wipe clean. Word on the playground is that it's pretty cool.



The 0-5 pack includes:

  • 50 iron on clothing labels
  • 25 small name labels
  • 20 shoe labels (great thinking here as littles grow fast!)
  • 1 personalized bag tag.

The 5+ pack includes:

  • 50 iron on clothing labels
  • 25 small name labels
  • 50 mini labels
  • 10 shoe dots
  • 1 personalized bag tag.
What more can I say - these are great quality products made with kids in mind, no boring plain labels here and I'm impressed. The eye catching designs will ensure that you child spots his/her drink bottle in amongst the many at preschool etc and also provide the most important part... return of lost items to the rightful owner. No more messy half rubbed of vivid names, these Stuck on You labels are stuck on us!

And a big THANKS to Stuck on You & Penny Scallan Design for the products to review AND as promised one lucky reader also gets the chance to win a set of their very OWN personalized label Packs - Go take a look at all the designs on www.stuckonyou.co.nz and tell me which is your favourite icon.  Comment below and I'll pick a winner on Saturday 13th April. I'll need to be able to contact you via email address afterwards.

  2. These are great. Used them them a lot when the children were little, but for a little while my kids were 'too cool' for them :D Need them again now for school camps and other group/team activities. They certainly help in teachers/coaches being able to return items to the right child, and it is really important that drink bottles and such are clearly labelled to prevent accidental sharing. They stick and stick and stick onto everything for ages.

  4. What a thorough review! The images are fantastic and great information about the uses and creativity behind each label and sticker. Looks to be a neat product, that is bold, colourful and useful as well as appealing to the kid's interests and creativity. I especially love the pirate and football designs as these are exactly what my little boy is into. Great read!

  7. awesome photos and video!!! Pretty clever of SOY to do shoe labels!!

    I think I'd go for the elephant design for my eldest (1.5 year old) - she really needs some clothing labels!

  8. Wow! How come I've never found these guys until now, I NEED to place an order and get Harry decked out for pre-school. I like all the vehicles such as the dump truck, car, digger etc but if I know my son, he'd definitely choose the wee guitar (my little rockstar!) Great review Gill and loved the video, had a wee giggle when the captions came across - well done :)

  9. Great review Gill - my boys have had these labels from little and they are so so durable! Breanna is now looking at their labels and wondering why she can't see her name anywhere!!! The butterfly is my favourite icon for her, although she is clearly tempted by the skull and crossbones too....the perils of having older brothers!

  10. I think the Butterfly would be cute for Breanna :-)

  11. oooo - great review and great products. I have been "importing" my favourite name stickers from Holland (where we lived when my sons were born) so it's good to hear about another option.

    I'm having trouble getting their site to load at the moment, but I love the pirates that you reviewed. Both my 5 year old and 4 year old would love them. They are huge pirate fans.

  12. What a wonderful review, especially with my wee man heading to his first year of school in July :-) it was a hard choice for him as he loved so many of the icons but the car was definitely a favourite. Thanks for the review and the opportunity to win some labels too.
