Product Review - Label Daddy

~ Posted on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 10:30 PM ~

I am so honored to be given the chance to review this awesome product:

The Label Daddy company is such a delight to work with, they are just so awfully helpful and prompt!

According to their website (,

"Our two founders, the Label Daddies, met back in high school when they were just sixteen years old, and to this day have remained the best of friends. For many years they have dreamed of becoming business partners and having the opportunity to combine their entrepreneurial skills. Before they could do that, they needed to find a great product that they believed was practical, useful, and worth its value to consumers.     
Both daddies have substantial experience in business in very different arenas, thus bringing a wide variety of skills to the table. One of our daddies has worked in the garment industry selling and managing production lines for all sorts of products while the other daddy has worked with banks and financial institutions assisting them in managing their balance sheets.    
The daddies were inspired to create Label Daddy soon after becoming parents themselves. They would often hear many fellow parents complain that too much time was spent labeling and re-labeling clothes and other items that their children took to camp or school with so-called permanent markers that often faded in the wash. They realized this was the moment they had been waiting for, the opportunity to use their respective business experience to create a stylish, adorable, and extremely useful product. A product that would be easy to use, time efficient for mom, durable for dad, inexpensive for both and very personalized.

I received the product real fast, I was not even expecting it to arrive so fast (normally those products that I get to review from US took about 3-4 weeks to arrive!) and the moment I saw the packaging, my eyes practically lit up! Isn't that the cutest packaging ever?!

You have no idea how hard it is for me to contain my excitement from ripping the packaging apart to see what's inside! I had to quickly rushed upstairs, grabbed my digital camera and quickly and steadily snapped the first few shots of the packaging before I open up the packaging! And what fell out were these awesome stuff!

A total of 4 packets of labels with the name of Benjamin and David (that's my hubby!), each design were individually packed in a vacuum sealed plastic bag! There's only 1 packet of label under my hubby's name, that is because I earlier asked Label Daddy whether I could request for a design under hubby's name and without any further question, they really did send me what I asked for! Awesome! 

Btw, they have a variety of label designs and colors to choose from, but as I really don't want to be too demanding, I did not request anything fancy other than asking whether I can have a set of the labels under hubby's name. Anyway, I quickly read the instructions which was printed behind each of the plastic bag on how to apply the labels.

Now, I'm already planning that I'm going to stick the labels to hubby's working shirts and pants and suddenly Ben snatched the labels and proceeded to investigate them... I let him investigate for a while more before I proceed to start sticking the labels with hubby's name to his working shirts and khakis.


I look for a shirt which hubby often wears to work and I proceeded to peel one of the label, ensure that the surface is clean and dry and started applying pressure to the label as I stick it onto the shirt's label.

Once it's applied completely, I tried to bend the shirt label at ALL directions. Just to see whether the Label Daddy's label is going to peel open or not. I fold to the left and the label stays on. I even tried flicking the label edges and it stays on! Good, good!

Then I fold from the top, even halfway and it remains where it should be. The Label Daddy edges are so strong that it doesn't peel open.

I stuck another one onto hubby's khakis that he just wore and is about to be send for washing...


The label on hubby's working shirt stays on even after wash! Ok, guess those guys at Label Daddy are true to their word! It's machine washable!

I actually tried peeling and folding the label on another shirt that I tested on (after wash) and they still stay strong!

However, sad to report that the label I stuck onto hubby's khakis came off after the wash. I just peeled it and it came out easily. Am not sure whether the material is not compatible with the khaki's label or that the khaki's label was a bit damp when I styck the label on.

* Note: After browsing through Label Daddy's website, I found out that I'm supposed to wait 24 hours before washing the clothing labels! Yikes! My bad!! But I wished this instruction was printed at the back of the sealed plastic bag as well...


I ain't going to stop the test at washing and drying. I wondered whether the label is going to be able to withstand heat, and I waited a few more days to collect more speciments (ehem I don't do my ironing everyday, normally I waited until there's a big pile of clothes before I proceed to do my ironing!) in order to perform this last and crucial test - The Ironing test!And the label remains unscathed!
Look at me having a go at ironing the label! I actually placed the iron and left it on the label for about 10 seconds.

Here's another shirt I ironed.

Here's me showing you guys what temperature I'm using to iron the shirt and test the label... In case you can't see clearly, the maximum is at level 6, and I'm using 5 for my ironing.


Other than the one label on hubby's khakis that came off after machine wash, the rest of the labels remains strong to this day.

As for Ben's name label, I stuck a few on his glass cointainer which I always used to store his food prior to going out. Because I homemade and homecook all Ben's food, I will cook his oats real hot, poured it into the glass container and serve it to Ben during his meal time whenever we are out. So far, the labels remain where they were stuck at and did not peel off after washing and scrubbing.

What I like about the Label Daddy's labels?

* Very easy to apply onto the clothings.

* Prompt & very friendly customer service and very cute packaging!

* Its machine washable and withstands heat from ironing!

* Looks so awesome and lots of trendy designs to choose from, which makes it very unique and eye catching! (Darn it! I should've choose mine!)

Go to Label Daddy's website and choose the type you would like. They have labels for clothing, camp pack, school pack, combo pack and other stuff such as labels for garbage bin, allergy note, photo stickers, zipper tags and much much more! Once you've got the type you like, you can proceed to choose the designs you like - the icons, label colors, font style and font colors. You can even choose to laminate the labels for some extra protection! The 4 sets of labels I received are all laminated! Awesome again right?!

But wait just a minute!!! I'm in the midst of finalising the details for a giveaway of this awesome labels with ONE of my lucky blog reader! Yes, yes, I know, you all love me, yes, please, don't stop praising, keep them coming, oh thank you, thank you... So, stay tuned and watch out for the giveaway post coming up soon! Control your drool please! I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO jealous of you guys for this giveaway!

Ben Gogh in the Making??

~ Posted on Tuesday, July 13, 2010 at 1:05 AM ~

I know I'm bad. I called my son names...

One moment he is Ben, the Ben-pire.

Then he is Ben, the Ben-blebee...

And now, ladies and gentlemen, I'd like to introduce you to:

Ben, the Ben Gogh! Cool

Hmmm... ever since Ben picked up some color pencils and started scribbling around during one of our recent family outing to our close friend's house (their daughter is 2 months older than Ben), I decided to take out the Sketch and Etch toy given by my brother during Ben's 1st birthday. I still kept the shape magnets as I think they are still a bit too small for Ben to handle for now.

So, during our usual balcony time, instead of playing with water, I decided to let Ben sketch or scribbles whatever he wanted on the Sketch and Etch toy. At 16 months old, Ben is still not very good in holding the stylus but nevertheless, it's better than the first time I let him tried it. He just stuffed the stylus into his mouth (which is why I kept it until now). I took a closer look at what he came up with... not bad, not bad... at least there's something! Everyone's gotta start somewhere right?!

And I noticed he loves sliding the magnet eraser left and right. And he only does that after he scribbled on it. Clever!

Ben pausing for a while... looking for inspiration??

Picture below of Ben taken from the top where I stood over him heheheh... (Btw, unlike the superstitious Chinese customs which is to shave a baby's head bald when they turned 1 month old, we did not shaved Ben's hair at all since he was born. And yet, Ben had a headful of hair, smooth and soft, just the way we love it!)

Ben starting his weird antics... am not sure whether he's looking for more inspiration for his sketches or he needs that rush of blood to his head or something...

Ben got distracted by our dog barking at the people walking past our house. And yeah, him standing on the sketch board... sigh... will try again next time...

I wonder whether my son is going to sketch something like this for me one day?  Just thinking... Cool

A Day at the Park...

~ Posted on Monday, July 12, 2010 at 1:09 PM ~

Here are some of the latest pictures of our recent family outing at the park again:

Ben getting all excited the moment we stepped right into the park area. And yeah, he's in pink again hahaha... (* Note: For those of you who don't understand why I say this, read my previous post on "Pink is for Boys, Blue is for Girls!")

Ben hinting he wants to play in the slide. What we always do is put him right at the top, hold him by his armpits and slide him down.

I don't know the name of this but you're supposed to hold on to the metal handle and sort of slide yourself to and fro the railings...

Ben having a go at walking on the field...

And he runs off further in and hubby had to chase after him to stop him from walking further as we realised there are dog poos all over the field. Yeah, some really irresponsible people who walks their dogs in the park but don't have the basic manners to clean and bag up their dog poos. Sigh...

We left at 7pm, before the mosquitoes started their blood sucking missions. Nice sunset sky huh?
