Zippies - Pals That Hang Around {Review and Giveaway}


Having three kids in school, we LOVE labeling things at our house. If a kids' item is off to school, it personalized somehow, someway. Low and behold, we were lucky enough to be introduced to a very new and unique line of identification tags called Zippies.

New Zippies “the pals that hang around” are round, flexible, characters that help children to identify their things by simply clipping them onto any belonging — water bottles, lunch boxes, backpacks, jackets, and even bicycles. Each collectible Zippies ID tag features a different character on one side with a place for contact information on the other.

Zippies give kids a fun and easy way to keep track of their stuff while parents rest assured that emergency contact information (last name and parent’s phone number) is with them at all times. Use the rubber loop – or detach it to clip the pal on a key ring. They can even help prevent the spread of germs by identifying water bottles and teach children the importance of being responsible for personal belongings. These kid collectibles can also prevent constant arguments over their belongings.


 

Some great uses for Zippies
  • Clip it on your luggage, making it easier to find
  • Clip it on your necklace
  • Clip it on your key chain, easily identifying your keys
  • Clip on your clothes, matching your mood
  • Clip on your backpack, to easily find which backpack is yours
  • Clip them to whatever or wherever you like...

ace and friends thoughts

Little *e* immediately grabbed Edge, {1} because it was pink {2} had cool teeth and {3} wanted to get it before her sister. She was excited to show her friends at preschool that she could now easily find her bag amongst all the others. All she said she had to do was look for Edge. We also personalized the back of her Zippies with her name and also identified her PEANUT ALLERGY. This was the perfect place to put it. We could easily move the Zippies around to attach it to her lunch bag, coat and water bottle. The clip was easy to open and quite secure once attached to any of the previously mentioned items. Overall these were a big hit in our household. They are super cute, very durable and perfect not only for kids, but for adults as well (I have Faina on my gym bag... because that's how I feel after a good workout. LOL!)
