When my daughter turned five, her supply of bandages began to dwindle from all the boo-boo’s that kids get, so I decided to search the aisles of drugstores for some kind of alternative – something cool, something different, something stylish. To my complete surprise, I came home empty handed; only able to offer her one of my horribly, boring beige bandages.
As I stood there in front of her medicine cabinet, I thought to myself, “Why are there no cool bandages?” I felt that change was in order, but it wasn’t until my wife (who is the true inspiration and “umph” behind these products) gave me a nudge and said, “You can do it.” From that point on, I started Ouchies – offering kids an array of adhesive bandages that allow them to show their style and personality. Since that time I have had two more kids, furthering my dedication to giving kids the chance to express themselves through bandages.
So, join me, my wife, my two daughters and son and let the world know that just because you are 5 or 8 or even 11, you can still have style after you have fallen and scraped your knee. Down with beige bandages, baby!
The day after I received a package from Ouchies, it just so happened Little Music Man fell on the playground at school and he had a pretty big cut on his knee. His teacher cleaned and bandaged it with--yup, you guessed it--plain, beige bandages.
So after bath time, I showed him the cool Jon Scieszka's Trucktown bandages from the Ouchies Jr. line, and put two on (initially we used two because his scrape was pretty big, and then eventually we just used one).
Each tin contains 4 bandages of each of 5 Trucktown designs. Since Little Music Man loves all things on wheels, he really liked the bandages (and often times I'd find him playing with the tin because he wanted to put more bandages on).
Ouchies Jr. also has really cute Olivia bandages that I'd probably end up wearing (because yes, I am a klutz and I get cuts all the time).
I can't wait to see what other designs Ouchies comes up with next, and maybe they'll offer different sizes too in the future.
The Ouchies Jr. bandages are great for anyone who is a Trucktown or Olivia fan, or simply anyone who wants a fun and cool bandage!
