Kids are much more active in the summer. Almost weekly during the summer, we start going through toys that have accumulated in our yard that belong to other neighborhood children and we begin to search the street for items my children lost. Zippies are adorable tags that can help your children keep track of toys, bags, water bottles, and more this summer season. In addition, they can be given out to a group of kids to place on their bottles to avoid spreading germs during a party, sports event, etc.
Unlike traditional tags, Zippies make your child's belongings easy to identify by simply looking for the bright character tags. In case the item becomes lost, there is a place on the back for a name and phone number. There are 10 Zippies in all, each a unique face and different color. They easily attach to items with their cord and stay in place once set.
Both of my children really liked the Zippies and immediately placed one on their bookbags and then put away the rest for use with water bottles this summer. They are made of a flexible but thick rubber/plastic. They managed to survive the last couple of weeks of school attached to bookbags without damage. The back is meant for an address and phone number. Using a regular Sharpie marker, there was not enough room for both so if you intend on using both name and number, you will need to use a find point marker. Overall, this is a cute and functional product that seems to make kids (at least mine) smile.
