A big thank you to Pak Naks

.
.
I'd hoped to get this post up before the holidays because these Pak Naks would make GREAT Hannukah or stocking stuffer gifts but with my parents in town for an extended visit things got away from me a bit. Now that the holidays are behind us though they're still just as cute as ever and would be a fun way for your kids to spend a little of that Hannukah gelt they got.
.
So what are Pak Naks? Easy. They're adorable little texturized rubber decorations for things like backpacks and jackets. They attach easily with heavy duty velcro and come in over 40 different designs ranging from flowers to sports to animals to science to pretty much whatever you can think of, so you know your child will find one they like. Each one is named and comes with a cute little back story too, great for firing up the imagination.
.
I won a set of six Pak Naks in a giveaway over at Sandier Pastures and I think my kids had almost as much fun choosing their Naks as they did getting them! Can you tell by looking at the photos of their backpacks that I have one sports-obsessed boy and a real girlie-girl? Both kids were avidly stalking the mailbox waiting for the package and when it arrived (much more promptly than this post I have to add) they couldn't put them on fast enough. I did try to suggest that they could put just one or two and then rotate them but neither child was interested. If one is good more is better. My daughter especially made sure to show them off to everyone she came in contact with the next day, including total strangers in the elevator!
.
They've been on for a few weeks now and still look brand new. No fading or wear and tear and the velcro that holds them on is still going strong. At just $4 a Nak (on the website) they're easily affordable, and better yet Pak Naks is a mom-run business, too.
.
My kids and I give them six thumbs up.

A good idea. I can see these taking off.

I've never heard of these before. I sure could have used these when all the kids were still living at home.

You know I love a mom owned business! These are great. My kiddies might just need a few.

Sorry for the late comment. House guests kept me busy! Glad your kiddos loved the Naks!
