Attach-A-Tag is a clothes labelling system and they recently reached out to Mummy Wishes for us to try their starter kit. Although #JasperBean doesn’t start school until next September, we were keen to try this out as he is constantly losing everything at nursery. So either I’m “crying” because he’s lost something expensive or have been in the family for years or he’s crying because he’s lost his favourite fluffy toy/comforter.
The Starter Kit
- 10/30/50 tags
- dolphin applicator (and removal tool)
How it works
The starter pack has 50 tags included and is pre-printed with your choice of name etched on it. The size of the tags is about 13mm and looks like a small oval shaped button. At first I thought it would be too small to fit a name on it for it to be properly legible. However, when I saw the product, it was perfect. Especially since #JasperBean has a fairly short first and last name, so the size of the print was pretty good. Obviously if you have a longer name, the letters will be smaller, but it won’t go any smaller than the size of a newspaper print and you can have a maximum of 33 characters on 3 rows. Then I was worried that it was too bulky and may irritate him. Mum anxiety is never too far away, right?
Attaching the tag to clothes is actually a lot simpler than I thought it’ll be. All I had to so was place the tag and retainer into the dolphin applicator and press it onto the label in his clothes. To finish it off, I turned the dial and it was fixed together permanently. Simples!
Step by Step
I decided to attach the tags to thicker material to see if it would hold as well as the thin labels as suggested in the instructions manual.
Verdict from the little one? He didn’t even notice there was any difference, so again, I was worrying for nothing. 😛
- Easy to attach and remove
- Doesn’t peel or wash off (or tumble dry off). Removing the tag requires the use of the dolphin applicator.
- Quick and efficient, especially if you’re labelling lot of items.
- No sewing, ironing or messy markers. No more finding your stuck on labels at the bottom of your washing machine or stuck somewhere it’s not suppose to. Names fading or bleeding after just one wash will a thing of the past!
- Fast delivery
- Lasts forever (or at least a very long time)
- Can be used on clothes, bags, jackets/coats etc.
- 33 characters on 3 rows is a lot of letters for a name, you definitely wouldn’t be able to clearly write that with a marker onto a standard clothing label!
- It’s plastic
- only 2 colour choices for tags (black or white)
- You’ll need to buy more retainers if you run out or re-applying.
- Difficult or not able to attach onto thick materials
I highly recommend this product! For little ones AND adults. I put a couple of tags on S football gear and now there are no more random pieces appearing or disappearing! No more (or at least fewer) excuses to not have items finding their way back into our house! #winning
The starter kit with 50 tags is £23.83, which works out to roughly £0.476p each. Checking out my list of Pros above, this is definitely a price worth paying especially since you can use them OVER AND OVER again! If you get these at the start of nursery, they will last them throughout their school life, although you will have to purchase more retainers! Think about all the time and money you ‘re saving from marking, sewing, ironing and re-marking, re-sewing, re-ironing. Additional retainers start from just £3.75.

Try this out and let me know what you think about it! It really is a mummy (and daddy’s) best friend when it comes to labelling!
Thank you for reading and until next time…
