Have you heard of Kiddsafe before? They are a new company, making safety identity wristbands for children to keep them safe if they become separated from you.
For any parent, it is a scary thought that your child might become lost. Especially as younger children are very unlikely to remember their home address or parent’s telephone number.
This was exactly the thoughts of the creator of Kiddsafe, a Mum herself who when sat on the beach with friends watching their children play, thought to herself just how easy it would be to lose sight of them on a busy beach. This is where the idea for Kiddsafe ID wristbands came from.
I’ve had that sinking stomach feeling of ‘losing’ my child before, luckily only for a brief moment, but if Kiddsafe had been around when my boys were younger I would definitely have bought them, especially for days out where they disappeared in to soft play areas.
As anyone who has spent much time on my blog knows, my eldest son has Type 1 Diabetes and this means that the risks to him if he had gotten lost when he was younger were much higher. The Kiddsafe wristbands can also be used to write medical information on, so that if someone finds your child, they will know straight away that they have additional medical needs.
There are two types of Kiddsafe ID wristbands, one of which are the fun-ID ones which are waterproof and have characters on. You use a permanent marker to write your contact details and medical information on the inside of the band, and the band can not be taken off without cutting it, so it won’t come off by accident and no strangers will be able to see your information easily, unless they find your child and remove it for them. These are the disposable wristbands.
The eco-ID wristbands are bands that will appeal to all ages of children, but will no doubt be preferred by older children (suitable up to age 10) compared to the fun ID bands.
These bands are reusable, and you write your details on a special insert, that goes inside the wristband, which is revealed when the wrist band is opened.
Both type of wristbands would provide peace of mind for parents, or even teachers on school trips. I know some parents actually write their numbers on their child’s arm before sending them off to play at soft play centres and other places – the downside to this is that numbers written in pen can be rubbed or sweated off, a wristband is a much better idea.
The lovely people at Kiddsafe are offering my readers a chance to win any two wristbands of their choice from the Kiddsafe website. So you could choose one eco-ID and one pack of the disposable fun-ID wristbands, or two of either one. It’s entirely up to you, but if you want to win then you need to enter via the rafflecopter below.
