As a teacher, I know how important it is that children are recognized by their names. We teach that names are about identity and having your identity established at a young age is important. Hence at school, it's usually "Billy" and "Jennifer" not "Sweetie" or "Dear".
At home, this also is true. That's why I thought it would be cool to have Hannah's name on her pacifier. No mix-ups at playgroups, no confusion during parties, and it's a great way for Hannah to see her name on something that she carries around with her. Personalized pacifiers are a wonderful product and besides making one for your little sweetheart, creating a unique one for your friends' kids would make a cool birthday gift as well.

They are reasonably priced at about 3 for $19.95 (the more you order, the more discounted they are). They meet safety standards and will take approximately three weeks to be delivered to Canada.
