Monday Madness: LostMyLovey ID Tags

Are you a wee bit paranoid about losing your child’s lovey?  Apparently, quite a number of Trekaroo families travel with their kids’ special friend.  Some of us have even been very panicked searching for a lost lovey or have had to be very creative in replacing a lost lovey.  Here is some road-tested advice on Travel Safety for Lovies from Trekaroo’s families.  Yet, no matter how vigilant you are, sometimes a lovey can still get lost and if that happens, you’ll be very glad you took the time to give your child’s lovey a lost and found tag.

LostMyLovey.com sells handmade ID tags and provides a one of kind return service that enables a lost lovey to find his way back to your loving home.  Lostmylovey.com acts as the intermediary should that dreaded situation occur.  The bright orange and purple tags have an ID number that is registered with Lostmylovey.com. When your child’s lovey is found, all the finder needs to do is go to the website and provide the unique ID. LostMyLovey looks up your contact information and takes care of locating you. If you are traveling, they will even hold on to it until you return home or arrange to mail it to you where ever you are.

I received a Lost My Lovey Tag about 2 months ago and we’ve already taken a couple of trips with it.  Here are 4 reasons I would get a Lost My Lovey Tag:

1) It’s cute and looks like dog tag.
2) It’s easy to attach and can be moved from one lovey to the next.
3) You don’t have to give out any personal contact information to the finder.
4) LostMyLovey.com is accessible from anywhere in the world.

    I love this idea. I keep a very tight grasp on my son’s lovey and have yet to lose it (knock on wood). My friend Kim lost her daughter’s lovey and immediately sought out more, bought 2-3 backups and now just circulates those.

    My daughter stuffed her lovey behind a product on a shelf while shopping with hubby. He didn’t realize it was missing until they got home. We called the store, then leaped back in the car and drove 30 minutes to retrieve the lovey, then 30 minutes back home. Since then, we check on the location of the lovey constantly.

    My children’s loveys are unfortunately, handmade quilts from Grandma. Grandma has made “backups” that we think will work for the youngest child in a pinch, but our oldest is so attached to hers still at 7, that I’m not sure she would be able to sleep if we lost it! These tags would definitely be a lifesaver!

    How cute! We have never had a lost lovey situation but if we traveled with something like this my lovey paranoia would certainly decrease.

    very handy and unique

    Mine hasn’t attached to a lovey yet (he’s almost 2) but he is starting to attach to stuffed animals and a blankie. Does that count? I try so hard to make sure we have duplicates of what he wants and now I have to see if Target still makes the blankie he took to daycare yesterday.

    my daugther looses her blankie at least once a day since she takes it everywhere around the house. the worst time was when we were on our way to a 5 day trip to san diego. i realized, while we were in the taxi on our way to the airport we forgot her beloved blanket at home… so my husband talked to her and we were able to get a replacement blanket for her to use while we were on vacation. she was very understanding and cried a little but liked the new, special blanket we got her to use on our vacation.

    My little 4 year old granddaughter lost her first lovey last fall and cried for weeks. She would accept no replacement. We contacted the resort numerous times with no results. We finally found an identical replacement and mailed it to her saying that her lovey was finally returning from vacation because she missed her so much. It was heartbreaking to us and this tag would certaintly help in the future

    We were traveling to Florida when we lost my daughter’s favorite blanket. My husband was trying to get the carseat, his laptop bag, and her blanket down the aisle of the plane. He ended up having to leave items at the front of the plane and travel back and forth to get the items to our seat. Well, he left her blanket up there and the flight attendants decided it must have been left by a previous passanger and they took it off the plane! Nevermind it wasn’t there when they checked between flights. Common sense says that it was someone on this plane. We called the airport as soon as we landed in Florida, many times during our trip, checked with the small regional airport when we returned home, filled our missing paperwork at both airports, called the airline, but it had disappeared the moment it was taken off our plane. Can you tell I’m still miffed and this was several years ago!

    My daughter’s favorite toy is a TY stuffed duck she’s named Ming Ming. Several years ago, Ming Ming went to the church nursery with us. As she usually doesn’t travel to church, we didn’t miss her when she was left. Later that day, we had no clue where Ming Ming was. I quickly checked online and found a replacement (we now have several!) About a month later, my wife was volunteering in the nursery and found Ming Ming! She was a little grubbier, but I often wonder how she enjoyed her month in the 2 year old daycare room! Oh if she could talk! =)

    My special needs little cutie loves his tiger! It’s actually the first and only toy he’s ever shown an attachment too. He takes it to school with him, on vacation, and anywhere else he goes. Because it’s getting really worn, we finally found another one we thought we’d be able to swap out and that way we’d have a back-up. Unfortunately, it had been too long and he can tell the difference and won’t have anything to do with the new “ga”.

    One time, he was caring him around in Barnes and Noble, we left, got all the way home, and “ga” was no where to be found- tough night. Luckily, we retraced our steps via phone and a customer service person found “ga” and we were able to pick him up the next morning.

    It’s fun to see your kiddos love something so much, but so scary for us as parents to have that item be lost. Especially when our children don’t understand why. Great idea for the tags! They are super cute! 🙂

    I thought I lost it but after much searching eventually found it.
