Why I name tagged my kids stuff, and you should too

my name tags


A couple of weeks ago the worst thing happened: Logan lost his favorite cuddly toy.

We went to see the trains at our railway station and of course, his cuddly toy rabbit Boris had to come along. Because just like Logan, Boris is crazy about trains as well.

We had a great time looking at the trains and after an hour or so we went back home. Logan played with his wooden trains and I had a nice cup of coffee.


Lost and found

Till bedtime came along. Logan drank his milk and it was time to go upstairs. But where was Boris? We looked everywhere. Underneath the couch, in the toy chest. We checked the living area and every place we thought Boris could be. Of course, Logan was very upset. He had a hard time falling asleep because his best friend wasn’t there. When my husband got home I checked the car and the parking lot but no Boris. I even went back to the railway station with my sister to search. We checked every bench and even peeked in the bins. But sadly Boris was nowhere to be seen.


Keep Calm

Then I got a little panicky. I decided it was time to make use of the world’s best way to search: social media. I posted a message on Twitter and Facebook if anyone had seen Boris at the railway station. A few hours later I got a message that Boris had been found! Thank God for social media.

A young man who was on his way home saw Boris lying all alone at one of the benches at the railway station. He picked Boris up and took him home and posted a picture of him on Twitter. Luckily I was able to get a hold of this man and we arranged for a reunification at the railway station the next morning.

My son talked about Boris went missing for several weeks till he was confident again that Boris wouldn’t go on the train without him ever again 😉


My Nametags

A few weeks later I got a message from My Nametags, asking me if I would like to review their name tags. This couldn’t have come at a better time.

I ordered 56 cute little name tags from the mr. men and little miss collection. If Boris ever would be gone missing again people would be able to get a hold of me because he now has my phone number on his label.

I’m very happy with our name tags, they stick to sippy cups and clothes labels.

The sippy cups go through a daily dishwasher cycle and the name tags stay on great.

Because Logan goes to daycare his belongings need to be labeled. I used to just write his name on the labels with a ball point pen but this fades out after a couple of washes. And it doesn’t look as cool as having your name and number with a mr. Smiley on a pretty label.



I blotted out our last name and phone number for our privacy.








You can order 56 name tags for E 12,95 including postage. That’s just E 0,23 cent per name tag. Have a look at My Nametags website, there are a lot of designs to choose from.




I received this product for review, the opinions in this article are entirely my own.
