Blue Bear Aware: Review and Special Offer for Readers
Posted Feb 18 2009 12:06pm
The kind folks at Blue Bear Aware sent me a special care package recently full of an assortment of allergy aware products. This photo highlights one of their shirts ("Some Bunny Doesn't Eat Peanuts" - so cute), a peanut allergy patch, stickers to identify allergies, and play date cards.
For those of you unfamiliar with this company, I linked to them in one of my epi pen posts (they make carriers ), here's a brief description from their website:
Welcome to Blue Bear Aware, where you'll find fun and fashionable t-shirts and accessories for kids with allergies and anaphylaxis. Every product in our store is designed with your child's safety and self-confidence in mind.
The shirt they sent is excellent quality (so soft!), and B absolutely LOVES it. I had intended on getting a photo of her in it, but she's worn it almost every day since she got it (it's been in and out of the laundry a number of times and it's still looking great)! They have a variety of adorable shirts for both girls and boys - check them out here. I'm not a big fan of products that scream "Look at me! I have an allergy over here!". These are different. The shirts call attention without looking sterile or too bright and embarrassing to the wearer.
I especially like their play date cards though. Even though I would never just drop B off at a friend's house to play without a rundown of what she could and couldn't eat, an epi refresher etc, these serve as a good reminder for caregivers and, well, moms at play dates!
As a special offer for Peanut Free Mama readers, Blue Bear Aware is offering readers 10% off their orders of $30.00 or more. Place the code PFM9 in the coupon box at checkout.
