Child safety is a continual interest to parents of young children, particularly new, first time parents. The online magazine and app called “First Time Parent” featured I.C.O.E. Child Safety bracelets in their September issue along with other safety related products. I couldn’t help but notice the differences in two items featured.
Electronic Safety Device
One was a cute electronic item called Audi Guardian Angel that is a little ladybug that you put on your children’s clothes or shoes to keep track of them. According to the article, it works best in line-of-site of your children particularly when outside but it can also alert you when they wander off. As if they are out of range. This might be the closest you come to chipping your children but they do have access to the device so there are some battery concerns. It’s a pretty cool idea.
vs. Simple Wristband
In total contrast is the simplicity of the I.C.O.E. Bracelet also featured on the same page. The only technology involved is our engraving of the bracelets. The article highlights the best safety feature of all – engraving up to 2 phone numbers and the fact that children will “want” to wear the bracelets instead of have to wear them. There’s no electronics involved but there is an action required by the children. If your children do get lost, they have to show their bracelet with your phone numbers to a parent or policeman so you’ll be reunited. Unlike the Audi Guardian Angel, there is no distance limit on where the bracelet works. It works everywhere!
Both are wonderful ways to keep track of your children – a topic of high importance to new parents. Thanks to First Time Parent for featuring our bracelets in their safety items. Here’s a link to their publication http://www.firsttimeparentmagazine.com if you’d like to read more. They also have an App with helpful information Firs Time Parent App.
