So how do you deal with a minor graze that your child becomes obsessed with and won’t stop showing anyone that will look? Cover it up with a plaster of course so that’s what I did but not with any old plaster a tiger faced Dermocare plaster!
A plaster is a necessity in any families first aid box, ever since Little Man has been able to walk I always have some in my bag and in the bathroom cabinet just in case. Plasters generally are fairly standard stuff, not very exciting especially to the little people in our lives. Not these plasters. Dermocare provide the most fun and exciting plasters for children (and adults I have to admit) that I have ever seen. I mean what child wouldn’t want a tiger put on a cut on their knee to show their friends? The great added bonus to these plasters is when you buy a packet you are supporting WWF (World Wide Fund for Nature). I always think it is nice to know you are supporting a charity when you are buying your every day items.
There are 2 boxes to choose from. One is a safari theme which includes zebras, snakes, tigers, pandas, leopards, orang-utans and lions. There is also an ocean life box which includes a shark, crocodile, lionfish, penguin, seahorse, dolphin and clown-fish. The plasters are waterproof, hypo-allergenic, latex free and can be used from birth so great if you want to put a plaster on after those pesky injections.
In our house a plaster makes everything better even for the smallest little injury. When Little Man grazed his leg at nursery and continuously played with it or scratched it I decided to cover it up with a plaster to allow it to heal. Little Man loved being able to choose which animal he could have and loved having a tiger on his leg promptly forgetting about the graze underneath it. When it came to his shower that evening the plaster came off easily and didn’t cause him any discomfort or leave any residue. A sure fire hit in my book.
Now for the important bits. There are 18 plasters in a box in 3 sizes. You can purchase a box of plasters for £2.99 from Amazon, Ocado or the WWF Shop. For more information about the plasters and the work of WWF click here.
I would recommend these plasters as a great addition to your first aid kit; exciting for kids, practical for parents and you are supporting a great charity at the same time.
