Stuck On You Personalized Backpack and Tags - Review and Giveaway

Giveaway open to Canadians

Let's get one thing straight: school is NOT just around the corner. I say this for two reasons:

1. I am a teacher. Enough said. (Although ironically, spending my days with two kids seems to tire me out more than spending my days with twenty!)

2. My daughter will start school this year, which is a turning point in her little life. I still need the next six weeks to process it all!

However, I am a planner by nature, (as well as a shopper!) so I agree that it's never too early to start purchasing back-to-school items, and Stuck On You Canada is a great place to start! When I was contacted about the possibility of a Stuck on You review and giveaway here at This Mom Loves, I was thrilled!

I recently received an adorable personalized backpack for Frannie, with her name and my choice of design from their new Designer Collection. I went for the pink bag with cupcakes...and judging from Frannie's huge eyes when she saw it, I made the right choice! The quality is excellent, and it has several different functional compartments.

Stuck On You is also your one-stop-shopping destination for iron-on clothing tattoos, which I also received, and which will be going on several of Frannie's items of clothing before September! Never lose items to the abyss that is the school lost and found again! I also love their stick-on dots and rectangles (Frannie got some in the Cupcake design) which I'll be putting on her water bottles and reusable lunch containers. I also want to order some Shoe Dots to put inside her school shoes. She's a bright little thing, but faced with a lineup of Barbie shoes, it's pretty hard to tell whose are whose.


As a teacher, I would also highly recommend the Stuck On You "Tools 4 School pack", with personalized pencil case, markers, coloured and HB pencils, sharpener, ruler, eraser and stickers (shown above, available in different designs). These are all essential classroom items, and believe me, having your child's name on everything is sooo helpful.

They also sell personalized shirts, pyjama sets, height charts, wall art...the list is endless.

"Enough!" you're thinking. "You promised a giveaway! What can I win?"

Here it is: one lucky This Mom Loves reader will win a personalized backpack (your choice of design) and bag tag, both with your child's name on them. (Well, I guess you could put your own name on them, but your little guy might be jealous when you head off to work with your cool "Traffic Jam" or "Jungle Animals" backpack. And you might get some weird looks at the office.)

 The total value of this prize is $59!


Mandatory entry: simply visit the Stuck On You Canada website, and leave a comment here letting me know your favourite design from their new Designer Collection. Be sure to leave your email address (if it's not on your profile) so I can contact you if you win!

I received stickers similar to these a few years ago from my sister-in-law in Australia (therefore not sure if this is the same product). I loved the concept, as she had sent us stickers with our family's last name. I plastered them all over my daughter's school paraphanalia. However I must confess they did not stay on permanently (now I did not iron them on as the Stuck On You site suggests, as I was not aware this was an option). I did love them for her back pack/shoes etc; but I have found a permanent marker is a bit more efficient. This is coming from the mom who buys NOTHING full price!
The backpacks are pretty cute, I definately like the jungle animals best. My three children are totally in love with wild cats, and they would love the jungle theme.

I think this is a great idea, I love the fantacy design and know all my girls would love to have personalized items, (almost hoping I don't win as then I would have to buy the other girls one too lol)I also think the wall art was pretty cute and think it would make an excellent baby shower gift.

I would chose Beach Bus on The Move for the backpack and Monkey in my car for the bag tag. My youngest son is a huge bus fan!

I have purchased from this company in the past and I found their products to be fantastic; especially the shoe dots! I really liked the "singing birds" design.

I really loved the personalized wall art. With two girls, it's really a toss up between the cupcakes and the fantasy or the transport for my son.
