Reed chose Ralph the dog, Earth, the planet, and Tabby the penguin.
Tessa chose Damsel the dragonfly, Squishes, the dolphins, and Minty the pair of hearts.
(Upfront disclaimer: we received these 6 PakNaks (value $24) for porpoises of sharing our honest opinions.)
What exactly are PakNaks? From the PakNak site:
PakNaks are fun soft rubbery 3-D decorations for kids (and adults too!) to personalize all of their stuff. Backpacks, lunchbags, headbands, computer bags, household items, the list is only limited by your imagination.The mom view:
Each PakNak comes with one of 40 plus designs and customized velcro® that makes them interchangeable, weather resistant and quickly and easily adhered to your surface.
The kid view:
Tessa says, "If I get tired of them one way, I can change them to another way. Besides, they are so cute!"
Reed says, "I like them because you can switch them all over the place! They are cool and so colorful! Whoever invented this is a really good inventor because he made a really good idea of what to do, so THANKS!"
(I swear, this is exactly what he said, and he really does speak in exclamation points!!)
The inventors are two moms in Portland, OR who run their business with a sense of social responsibility.
I give PakNaks thumbs up as well. They seem very sturdy, are amusingly whimsical, and my children have so far been unable to destroy them.
PakNaks is holding a Back-to-School special. Head over and look at the 39 designs and make your selections. At checkout, enter code PAK20 and they'll knock 20% off your order.
I only wish they'd invented PakNaks back when I was sewing all those badges onto my Girl Scout sash.
