a)readily available and relatively inexpensive
b)is sturdy enough to withstand younger (toddler) siblings, yet that won't damage things like walls and furniture.
Thank you so much!
They have them at Wal-Mart here, too.
I just saw that post-its just came out with labels too and they are attractive. Or you could just print your own out on card stock and laminate them or print them on sticker paper. Let us know if you find something really cool!
I was thinking of printing out the words on regular paper, laminating, cutting out and using regular tape to tape them places. DH and I are trying to learn Japanese (we live in Japan) and expose our oldest to it.

Having grown up with that, my recommendations are to not label in your primary language and to make sure they know the phonics of the other language, if at all possible.
Because as soon as I could read English, when I'd glance at the cards (placed on their objects, with a picture of the object on top), I just read the English and rarely read the Spanish or French. And the Korean I especially didn't read because I wasn't familiar enough with the writing system.
Of course, I was also quite old when the labels finally went up. I think if they had been used as a way for my parents to be reminded of the words, it would've been more helpful.
Physically, the cards were 4x6, with a magazine picture glued to the top, words written beneath, and laminated. Stuck up with regular tape, which wasn't a good method.
