Zippies - Pals That Hang Around

One of the things I find exciting about  a new school year is all the cool back to school items.  It's the only thing keeping me really calm.  Something about new clothes, notebooks and book bags to get me in the back to school mood. 

And what I'm most excited about is Zippies.  Creative Child Magazine hailed Zippies as 2010 Product of the Year; they will be great for The Boy's backpack, lunchbox - even to hang on his belt hoops for personal identification.  (Use the rubber loop - or detach it to clip the pal on a key ring.)  They'd be great for play-dates too, to identify water/juice bottles. 

The Boy isn't the kind of kid that will tell you his name or phone number voluntarily - so the Zippies are a great way to  ensure The Boy can be identified in case of an emergency. 

The best part is - The Boy is really excited about them too!  He chose Ranger for his back pack.  And the description makes me smile - sounds a bit like The Boy. 

There are 10 to choose from.  But why choose, you can have them all and mix and match as you please. Zippies have a suggested retail price of $3.99 each, $15.95 for a five pack or $29.95 for the entire limited-edition first series. They can be ordered online at and found at select retailers nationwide.
