Have you ever lost your child for even a second? I have and let me tell you it is the scariest thing ever. We were at the plaza (that’s what it was called back then) and we were looking at the clothes. My son was about 3 at the time. One minute he was standing right next to me and the next he was gone! My heart dropped. I was calling him and calling him and I couldn’t find him. I started to panic. I was having a panic attack. I could hardly breathe. I went outside the store and he was no where to be found. About a minute later, it seemed like an eternity to me, he came out. It turned out he was hiding under one of the clothing racks. Back then which was 30 years ago, you didn’t hear about kids being taken or getting lost. Times were different then they are now. I have 3 grandchildren though and I worry constantly about them. We live right by Disney World and everyday you here about kids getting lost or taken. Another time we were at Downtown Disney, just my husband and I and we were at the the Toy Store. We were just walking through the store and there was a little girl, probably around 6 or so, crying. We walked over to her and asked her if she was lost and she said yes. So we started to walk around looking for a frantic mother. The Toy Store has different sections, needless to say we finally found her but she didn’t seem to be to concerned. I think I was more concerned than she was! Moral of the story, if she had a SafetyTat on, we could have found her mother a heck of a lot sooner than we did. I was given the opportunity to review the SafetyTat.
They are temporary tattoos you put on your child’s arm when at a shopping mall, airport, amusement park, any type of store and anywhere there might be a chance of getting separated. They are waterproof and you need to do is peel and stick. You write your phone number on them so in case you do get separated you can easily be found. Did you know that over 2000 US kids get lost everyday, 90% of families will experience losing a child in a public place, (like me), and 95% will forever remember the trauma of getting lost. Another time we had all gone out to a restaurant to eat. There were probably 15 of us. I was about 10 at the time. We had just got done eating and I had gone to the rest room. When I came out, much to my surprise everyone was gone. They left! Without me! Apparently we had to give them time to get home because that was before cell phones. The restaurant had called them to tell them they forgot me. Luckily I was old enough to know our phone number, but if I was younger I might not have. SafetyTat would have been great in that situation. Sure, we can all laugh about it now, but I was scared and I’m sure my parents were too once they realized no one had brought me home. SafetyTat was invented by a Baltimore, MD mom of 3 kids. You can order them customized with your phone number already imprinted on them or blank so you can write the number in. I received the blank ones so that if I have my grandchildren with me, I can put my number on them. They come with the alcohol pads to prep the area, 6 blank labels and the permanent marker to write on them with. The ones I chose are the Quick Stick Write-On 6 pack Zoo pack. There are so many types to choose from. Original SafetyTat (one line, one graphic), Quick Stick Write-On! Multi 3- pack, QR SafetyTat, and their new Custom Quick Stick. They are super easy to apply. They also have ones for allergies, special needs, medical, tweens, boys, girls and even special ones for alzheimers/dimentia patients. That was another reason I chose the blank ones. My mom is 92 and just starting to have Dimentia. My father in law had Alzheimers and he would wander off and get lost very easily. So these I can also use on my mom when we go places and I don’t have to worry as much. Some of the benefits of SafetyTat are:
- latex-free adhesive
