I guess I should backtrack and give you some background on Lovable Labels:
It is said that necessity is the mother of invention and this proved all too true for Laura Porreca, Owner and President of Lovable Labels. 
When Laura’s first child entered daycare, she was told to label all his belongings.  This meant labeling everything from his outdoor clothing, to his indoor shoes, lunches, sippy cups and backpack.  Laura recognized a need in the market for personalized labels that were tough and durable and could stand the test of time and the everyday use that children put them through.
After researching and testing many different products and designs, Laura created a line of labels that include Regular and Slimline Stickers, Shoe Labels, Iron-ons and Bag Tags.  They are not only bright, fun and colourful but also met the high standards that parents have come to expect. The Regular and Slimline labels are microwave and dishwasher safe, the Iron-on labels stay put in the washer and dryer, the Shoe Labels have an extra strength adhesive to ensure they won't come off and the Bag Tags are made of a durable and flexible plastic.  
In 2003 Lovable Labels was born!
Today, the company continues to grow and offer exciting opportunities for its team of sales agents.  Laura also feels strongly about giving back and has incorporated fundraising into the Lovable Labels company.  Schools, daycares and camps use our labels to raise funds for extra-curricular activities while providing a practical and useful product for parents and children. 
I was sent a one of their Friendship Packs to review for Valentines Day - the Friendship pack is jam-packed with 120 labels and as a bonus I got a Free Friendship Sampler pack as well which includes 40 labels for a friend!


I chose the Bedazzled (pink/purple) pack for Robyn - and she was able to personalize it by choosing one of 45 different icons ... she debated between a few, but settled on the dolphin as being cute, but still mature enough for middle school.  As for the bonus pack, I cheated and made baby Erik her friend, since I knew that as we started going out and about more, he'd need his own labels for bottles, toys and sippy cups.   He got the Majestic Friendship sampler (black, blue, green and gold) and as his mom, I chose to go cute, but different and picked the happy little frog as his icon.

The labels are high quality - they've survived the daily grind on Robyn's binders as she shoves them into her bookbag, carts them around school and accidentally spills soda on them while doing homework.  I color coded some of Erik's bottles because we have some that are Fast Flow nipples for when I add rice cereal to his bottles in the hopes he'll sleep longer (not working out completely, but that's a different post...).  I've also labelled his wipes container and some of the other things I carry in my diaper bag, in case Liam removes them for me when my head is turned and we're out...

So far, the labels have stood up to dishwashing, both by hand and dishwasher, I've also, for the purposes of testing them out, microwaved them - and they are stood up well!  

I love that the friendship pack comes with so many different sized labels, there are uses for all of them.
