>PakNak charms are adorable. They remind me of giant jibbitz for crocs- only they can be applied, and reapplied, and put on just about anything!! They are 3D rubbery foam figures, in all kinds of fun shapes, animals, colors and designs, and are such a fun, inexpensive way for kids to put their ‘signature touch’ onto their belongings!! Plus, they don’t damage the surface they are on so we parents don’t get upset.
#1 It’s not a pin – no need to puncture your stuff (like a backpack)
#2It’s not a sticker – it’s 3D and so much more than that
#3It’s not a patch – just stick and go; no sewing or ironing required
|Seriously. I would have LOVED this as a kid!!
I love that PakNaks even has some holiday inspired charms, because, well, I come from a long line of women with a genetic tendency to go overboard for holidays. (See, though, its genetic, so I can’t get in trouble for it, right?) How fun if your daughter has a plain headband that she can swap out the PakNaks on, or your son’s backpack?
PakNaks almost remind me of trading cards each PakNak has a name, a home, a favorite food, a best friend and a favorite activity with a photo of the PakNak above! Such a cute, fun idea. Although I can totally see my kids getting into trading these as they get older and never knowing what PakNak is coming home with them after school! These could also be a fun way for a kid who is sad to have a “plain” backpack or has a handmedown to make it *theirs*!!
The PakNaks we received are Mona and Ralph. Mona is a purple flower and my girl just adores this one. She’s got it on her dance bag. My little guy got Ralph, a white dog with black spots, and he has it on one of his backpacks (My kids have a lot of bags. Again with the genetics. They do get that from me…I get it from my mom) I am working on getting my computer to stop ignoring my camera for uploads but losing that fight- when I win the battle I will share pics of OUR PakNaks!!
I love this product idea. So simple and so much fun. Plus, safe for kids to use and durable. Trust me when I tell you we have put these through the wringer and they are holding up really well! A bonus? They are pretty reasonable as far as pricing goes, so it isn’t going to break the bank buying them. The holidays are coming…this could make a great little stocking stuffer!!
