Getting Ready for School with Mooo + Giveaway

Competition now closed. Congratulations Melissa!

It was a mistake to tell my soon-to-be-in-prep girl that she would start school after Christmas. Do you realise how long after Christmas school actually starts? To an excited 5-year-old it’s a very long time. Trust me.  So yeah, we’ve been talking about school for a little while now.  My kids love picking out groovy name labels for their school belongings and, believe me, you need to label EVERYTHING that goes to school.

When it comes to labels, I’m a sucker for the gorgeous designs at Mooo.  Mooo specialise in personalised products, and not just name labels, they do wall canvases, backpack, wall stickers, puzzles, invitations, clothing and more!  The website provides a live preview of how the name of your child appears on the product and, in my experience, this is very true to life.

I’m highlighting some of Moo’s great products and check at the bottom for a special offer and giveaway opportunity.


These adorable medium sized bags are perfect for children starting school. They are just the right size for small people and the personalised bag can be clearly recognised by the child.

Chalkboard Wall Stickers

These chalkboard stickers are so cool!  Very handy for older children to leave notes like “library tomorrow” or “swimming”.  I think I need one for the kitchen too.

Family Calendar

I have three kids at school this year. THREE! Far out, I find it hard to keep track of music days, library days, sport days, swimming days, excursion days and everything else involved in schooling.   The family calendar is ideal for this very thing.  Each person in our family has their own column so at a glance, I can see what everyone is doing.  Click the picture to see the entire range of family calendars.

    Ooh I’d love some labels, Muffin starts school this year. Those tound ones would be good to stick inside kids shoes (at the heel) since most primary schools have adapted the “shoes off” policy inside the classroom. So a with a personalised sticker, the kids wouldn’t get their shoes mixed up!

    (especially when there’s only like one place to shop from, everybody has the same shoes lol)

    I made the same mistake of telling my Kindy Girl that she’d be going after Christmas. We’ve made up a calendar for January with all (any!) special events marked, so she can cross off the days until the 28th when she actually starts. Its working well.
    Labels would be awesome….

    LOVE these products and the labels sure would be a Godsend. My youngest heads off to school this year and with 3 now there – well, the odds for missing things certainly go up!!!! BTW – totally love the backpacks with the personalised name.

    Oh my DS goes into Grade 1 this year and ever since the first week of holidays asks every morning if it is a school day he loves school lets hope he still does in 12 years time. I love Moo products and more labels would be very handy we use so many of them on our possessions.

    Mooo stuff is too cute and practical! Love it!

    I have been looking at those backpacks for Owen for this year.. Prep 2011…

    Prep is a big step! Collecting all your own things for yourself is a HUGE step!
    I’m not sure how Owen is going to go in that respect, but having his name splashed over every. single. thing. will be a great start!

    Oh this pack would be perfect for my little boy. This year is his first year at school and he has a habit of leaving things on the floor and not putting them away. I’m worried that I’m going to have to buy a new jumper, lunch box and bag every day because he always forgets where he puts things. The teacher has already been alerted but these labels would definitely help us find those missing objects

    Our 2nd is heading off to Prep for the first time this year as well, and she can’t wait…I can see her sleeping in her uniform the night before at this rate. It’s definitely going to be an early wake-up on the 24th!! We’ve just moved house, so some pre-prepared labels would be jolly useful instead of handwriting for both the girls…

    My fave gift that my son received for his birthday was a Mooo cooler bag (it felt more like a gift for me!). He loves rifling through it to find what snacks I’ve brought out for him!
