I have two safety products that travel everywhere with us. No matter where we go or what we do. And both products always elicit questions from parents who want more information.
Let's face it- kids are fast. Take your eyes off them for one minute and a terrifying game of hide-and-seek may begin. We've been using the Harness Buddy (ours is by Eddie Bauer) since my five year old began walking. We chose the Harness Buddy over a plain “kid leash” for a couple of reasons:
- It's plush and the harness is soft. This makes it nice to wear in the summer as the straps won't irritate tender skin.
- It's a puppy and a small backpack. Therefore it is fun to wear. My girls often put them on at home and “walk” each other. (Other animals are also available- monkeys, giraffes, unicorns…)
Amazon.com has a nice selection of these (click safety) starting at $15. I have also seen similar items in retail stores, though selection is not as wide.
We've been using Safety Tats since since the summer of 2008. My choice is the Quick Stick Write On as I can add any information to it. These “tattoos” are easy to apply, last for up to 2 weeks and stay on in water. To remove you simply pull off like a band aid.
You can also have Safety Tats custom printed with up to 2 lines of information; they are also available with allergy and health information.
I wrote a full review last summer and still agree with everything I wrote then.
