If there’s one thing that always makes children nursing a nasty scrape or bump feel better (after a cuddle), it’s a little first aid. Some attention and a sticking plaster usually cures all ills. Here’s a handy little kit that’s easily portable, so you’ll never be caught on the hop.
The cleverly titled I’M OK! first aid set is bright and colourful, aiming to take a little of the sting out of a child-related injury. It contains twenty four sticking plasters, six non-sting antiseptic swabs, a cold pack and emergency information card, all tucked neatly into a pocket case. It’s the perfect size to slip into a handbag. It’s often when children are away from home that they’re most out of their comfort zone, so a simple fall can lead to a mess of tears and tantrums at the most inconvenient places.
The I’M OK! first aid set may be as much placebo as it is medicinal, but I would dance on my head if I thought it would comfort my injured child. Toddlers soon become enamoured with plasters, and cold packs are a godsend for bumps.
The kits are available in three colours in Australia, Pink Princess, Blue Pirate and Orange Bear. They retail for $24.95 each from MessPots.
