PakNaks: The Versatile, Cute, Interchangeable Stick-On! {Review & Giveaway}

I was recently introduced to PakNaks, and Im loving them! These interchangeable velcro stick-on charms have a high cute factor and an even higher fun factor. At first I thought that they were just for kids to stick onto their backpacks and bags, but after receiving them and looking around online to see what others used them for, Im finding that there is much more to them than that!

Dont you love the flowers on the lamp? Whats even better is that you could decorate a childs room in any theme because all of these PakNaks are easily interchangeable!

Heres how it works (and my thoughts):

Each PakNak charm is soft, bendable and 3-D, giving it almost a pet-like quality that kids will love!

Peel off the backing of the Velcro circle and stick it to anything it can be a backpack, purse, notebook, laptop, clipboard, or the side of a bunkbed just let your kids have fun with it! The sticky side is super adherent and the directions say to let it stay undisturbed for 24 hours before messing with it. Of course, trying to keepmy 2-year-old away from these new and exciting colorful little bugs was much too hard, so I let her play with them right away. And we had no trouble with it staying stuck, thankfully. But if it had been a backpack or something like that, I would have hidden it away until later.

Heres what we did with ours:

I bought Emma this magnetic chalkboard from IKEA and its waiting to hang on her wall. Right now, we have it out in the living room so she can draw and be near us. I decided that some of these PakNaks would be a cute addition and fun for her to draw around, so on they went! And we love the result! And yes, that is my quick artwork, not my 2-year-olds. But shes quite a good artist, too. 😉

Another fun feature of the PakNaks is that they each have a name and a little bit about them on the information card like where their home is, their favorite food, best friend, favorite activity, etc. So cute!

There are over 40 PakNaks to pick from and you can also buy more Velcro backings or fuzzy coins for even more PakNak fun!

I like these PakNaks so much Im saving Manfred the Snail for something special. I just havent decided what yet
