Every worry about what would happen if your toddler or preschooler wondered off while you are shopping at the mall? Have you taken more than one child to the park and while you were helping one child another scurries out of sight?
It’s a moment to make any parent’s heart skip a beat. Hopefully none of you ever experience the panic of having a lost child. I was recently given the opportunity to try out a product called SafetyTat, which was designed by a mother of 3 in hopes to ease some of the fears involved when taking multiple kids on outings.
I asked to try out the Quick Stick Write-On version, thinking it would be nice to be able to write a different cell number on the tattoo if kids went with their daddy that day or a grandparent.
After reading through the simple directions, I applied one to my preschooler’s forearm, using the supplied marker to write my cell number on the tattoo. Then I put one on my toddler’s upper arm, where I figured he wouldn’t keep seeing it all day and try to pick it off… (Let’s be serious, he’s 2.)We headed off to the children’s museum, and the kids never even noticed their tattoos. Mommy’s mind was a little more at ease, knowing that should one of them wonder off, even though they can’t tell anyone my phone number yet, a museum employee could easily find my number on their SafetyTats, reuniting us that much faster.
The site says the Quick Stick Write-On version can last up to 2 weeks. (The original version, which is more like a temporary tattoo lasts 1-5 days) My preschooler peeled hers off shortly after our museum trip, but I left my son’s on his upper arm to see if it would truly last.
He even took a couple baths and went swimming with it on. It stayed, just as the SafetyTat site promised!
I left the SafetyTat on his arm for a week. I was a little nervous about taking it off; I wondered if it would be difficult to remove and if he would fuss about it. Thankfully, it truly is as easy to remove as the product claims. I simply used my fingernail to lift up the edge and pulled it off in one smooth motion, like a band-aid. No fuss.Did it leave a mark behind?
The only mark resembled how your skin looks after a band-aid that has been on for a day or two is removed.So, would I recommend the product? I certainly would. I try very hard to never take my eyes off my children, but when dealing with more than one little one, it happens. “Tattooing” them with my phone number gave me a little piece of mind as they explored the children’s museum that day and later in the week when we went to a small amusement park and my toddler still had his SafetyTat secure on his arm.
Wondering about the price? For the Quick Stick Write-On version I tried they are $19.99 for an 18 pack or $9.99 for a 6 pack, and they come in a variety of designs to choose from.
The company has graciously offered a give away to my wonderful readers to try this wonderful safety product for yourself!
