This is a sticky post. Scroll down for my regular daily postings.
Here's your kids' chance to express their personalities right there on the backpacks, or their lunchboxes, or their notebooks, or even their bedposts (ask mom first!).
What are Pak Naks? Easy. They're super-cute 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 Pak Naks in a giveaway over at Sandier Pastures a few months ago 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 (quite promptly I might 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 months now and still look brand new. No fading or wear and tear and the velcro that holds them on is still going strong. Best of all Pak Naks is a mom-run business, so you know they stand behind their product.
My kids and I loved them so much that I actually wrote to Anne from PakNaks to see if she'd be interested having me host my own PakNaks giveaway here on my blog for the latest Bloggy Giveaways carnival. As you can see she thought it was a great idea and I'm delighted to be able to offer each of THREE WINNERS a chance to win FOUR PAKNAKS OF THEIR OWN CHOOSING.
They're adorable, fun to wear and fun to share, and sure to put a smile on your child's face. They'd make great party favors, too.
