Disney Self Adhesive Labels
Santa Loves Disney Too
It has come around to that time of the year again when Father Christmas and his elves are beginning to wrap the presents, and even though Father Christmas is brilliant with delivering the presents to all the children around the world, he does tend to forget names, so even he needs to label the presents!
There are many different labels on the market for Christmas time, the non-self-adhesive kind are so annoying and quite often I make my own labels with cut out cards and string, though this year with a small daughter in tow, I thought I would make it easier for myself and brought some self-adhesive labels from Disney.
These specific set of Disney labels come in many different Disney character and programme types from Jungle Book to Winnie the Pooh. This specific type I am reviewing is the Winnie the Pooh set as my daughter adores this character though I believe from looking at others that this review will cover all the different types in this set apart from the different images of course!
This set is extremely cheap at between £0.70 and £1.00, there is even some new packs on Amazon from £0.01 though you do have to remember the postage and packaging costs here. I found these labels in Pound Land for...well you have guessed it, a whole £1.00! This price is very reasonable really, and you get 60 labels within the pack which is great.
The labels come within a small box which is decorated with the Disney character you have chosen, in this case, Winnie the Pooh with a selection of the labels on the sides to show you what the labels are like. As the box is sealed when you purchase it, you have to take it on what it shows on the side, though this is very accurate. When you unwrap the packaging you only need to open the cardboard box and fiddle with the roll of labels inside so that you can get the end of the label roll to stick out of the opening on the front of the box, making it easier to pull the labels out one by one when needed.
The labels themselves are very colourful with lovely images on them. There are only five different images which is a shame, though as I said, the images themselves are lovely and perfect not only for children but for adult lovers of this lovely character and friends too. The labels feature Winnie the Pooh surrounded by presents, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and Winnie and Piglet cuddling. Each label has the words Merry Christmas decorated on the image and underneath the image is a white area in which you have two dotted lines and the words 'to' and 'from'. The space available to write the names is limited, though there is a little space underneath for a small amount of extra writing. This I have found is average on labels of this kind which is one of the reasons I used to make my on labels as I like writing personal messages on them, though on these labels, you just haven't got the room. With children, though, I don't think they really take much notice of what is on the label really as they are more interested in ripping open the wrapping paper to see what is inside. Of course, when there are presents under the tree for more than one person, then labels are needed and these I find are perfect.
The labels peel off of the backing paper on the roll easy and stick well to the wrapping paper - too well sometimes as the moment they touch the wrapping paper they are stuck fast and so if you are like me, you will end up with wonky or bumpy labels! Occasionally a label is stuck quite hard on the backing paper and there is a small risk of ripping when unpeeling it, though so far I have only slightly ripped one.
There is not much else that I can really say about these labels as I think I have covered everything. They seem easily available in cheaper shops such as Pound Land and Wilkinson and probably many other cheaper places such as card shops and also available online at Amazon. They are lovely looking and a great finish to those wrapped presents for Christmas and children will love them (as do I!). They are cheap and easy to use and really nothing negative can be said about these labels.
