Mompact Blog Hop! – Label Itz Brand Bandette, ToothBand, and MySpot Review & GIVEAWAY!
ViveVita is a mompreneur-run company that seeks to create innovative products that solve everyday problems experienced by moms & families! Run by Robyn – mom of NINE children, ViveVita is a company created with families in mind (and with nine kiddos, I’m sure Robyn knows all about how valuable time is and what a blessing modern-day conveniences are!)
I had the opportunity to review the Label-Itz line (Unique 4 Me) of products with my own family. As a momma of two boys (Charlie – 3.5 years old & Jack – 1.5 years old), aunt to three nieces & five nephews, once over nanny, and previous church childcare helper, I was extremely excited to learn more about these products!
First, I tried out the Bandette Labels for Kids’ Cups and Bottles. These labels are phthalate free, lead free, and BPA free which means you can feel comfortable letting your littlest ones grip them. These labels fit most kids cups, bottles & drinks and are perfect for daycare, playdates and every day use! They also reduce the spread of germs since kids always know which cup is theirs! For the non-readers of your house, you can coordinate all of their Label-Itz items by color & animal – Charlie chose the green monkey. While he recognizes his own name, even if your little one doesn’t, the color & animal coding help your child to know right away which cup belongs to them. In my own immediate family, Charlie & my nephew Ethan have similar cups – these labels quickly keep them separate from one another.
If you do have a reader in your house (or you send your child to a playdate/childcare with other kids), you can write a message on the Bandette Label, including either your child’s name or basic description (i.e. morning milk). To personalize, use a ballpoint pen to write your information. Apply mild pressure and the information comes off If you’d like to make the message more permanent, simply boil the band with the printed information still on! For these labels, I opted NOT to boil so that I can change them up! I LOVE these Bandette labels. They are simple to use and Charlie loved the newest accessory to his cups! I was also able to use them on Jack’s bottles when going out as well!
Second, I tried My Spot which provides the perfect place for your child to find his own “seat!” My Spot is soft on one side, while non-slip on the other. They come in coordinating colors (again, green monkey for Charlie) and provide a space to permanently give your child their own Spot! I used a permanent marker and found that it worked perfectly! My Spots are flexible which makes for easy transport (toss in the diaper bag to encourage your child to stay in their “seat”) and these work particularly well in larger groups. Jack (my 8.5 month old) doesn’t quite sit in his own Spot yet, but I can definitely foresee making these a part of our regular family routine once he does. For now, Charlie knows just where to sit at the dinner table and it’s perfect for getting him to wind down after a particularly busy play time!
Lastly, we tried out the Toothbands. It seemed like only yesterday that Charlie carted around no less than seven family toothbrushes to “play with.” I definitely could have used the Toothbands then! These bands are also phthalate free, lead free, and BPA free. These stretch to fit most styles and lengths of toothbrushes. We again color & animal-coordinated with the green monkey. The Toothbands make it easy to snag the right toothbrush right away and also gives Charlie’s a sense of ownership over his “new” toothbrush. For personalization, again write your message with a ballpoint pen and place in boiling water for at least five minutes to seal for a long-lasting message. Note: This was the only product I did the boiling method on. I used permanent marker on the My Spot and wanted to be able to change the label easier on the Bandette labels. Personalization is completely up to you and one of the components, I think, that make these products unique.
As a mom of two, these products definitely simplified our life in a fun way! The personalization definitely won me over (particularly being able to *change* the message) and the color coordination is great for the not-yet-reading kiddos in your bunch! This company is family-friendly, health-conscious, and always thinking of new ideas to make our lives simpler! I’m excited to be able to “share” some of these with one of you also!
