Ouchies Review

If you have young children in your house you know that bandages can be a big deal. They have to be just the right size and just the right pattern to avoid further meltdowns for even the smallest little scrapes or cuts. In my house, my oldest son is usually more concerned about what character/design the bandage is than he is about the injury that requires it! I have quite a collection of bandages in my house, and I’m glad to add Ouchies to my arsenal.

Ouchies was started by a dad of three who wanted to give his kids a cool stylish alternative to the standard beige bandages. Available to purchase online and at retail stores around the country, Ouchies offers an array of designs for girls and boys, with many of their designs suitable for both. I especially like their Eric Carle designs – even I would sport those!

Ouchies sent me two tins of bandages for review. First off, can I say I love the tins! Cute and re-usable, this is always a plus in my book. One tin is called 4Girlz and I’m keeping these on hand for when my nieces are over – you never know when you’ll need one with my group of crazies! The designs are pink, flowery and girlie and I think any young girl would love these. The other tin is a special D.A.R.E. edition with an anti-bullying message. There are five designs in this tin – designs perfect for both boys and girls. And the greatest feature of these is that 100% of the profits from purchases of this tin go directly to D.A.R.E. Each tin contains 20 bandages and each retails for $5.00.

You can learn more about Ouchies, and where to buy them, on their website. While you’re there, be sure to sign up for the People Against Boring Bandages movement – for every new member that signs up, Ouchies will donate bandages to local hospitals!
