Kid’s Medical Alert Jewelry That’s Functional And Fun | July 25, 2012

Just as grown-ups are reluctant to wear Epilepsy ID bracelets – even though they know they’re important, if not essential – kids are even more resistant. They’re “ugly,  they’re dorky, they single me out” and they sure aren’t exactly something they’re crazy about wearing.

Well, we’re about to shatter that myth. Because there’s plenty of kid’s medical alert jewelry that’s not only functional, it’s stylish and fun!

Here are a few of the best…

N-Style ID http://www.n-styleid.com/children.html has lots of choices…lots of style. They’re children’s medical ID bracelets that are interchangeable and come with one slider ID tag which works with all bands so that your child can mix and match, for versatility and fun. Choose from both different materials and buckle choices.

Ultralight Kid’s Medical Bracelets are the perfect choice for a child’s sport activities with bands are made of durable nylon webbing and a center push plastic buckle.

Jelly Bands are the perfect medical bracelets for kids in the swim. Waterproof and latex-free.

Oneida Medical Jewelry http://www.oneida-medical-jewelry.com/ has child/infant vinyl shoe tags or pin-on tags which are brightly colored vinyl to attract attention. (Now, that’s brilliant!)

There are also children’s necktags, necklaces and bracelets of stainless steel, engraved with the child’s information.

Lauren’s Hope http://www.laurenshope.com/category/111/medical-id-alerts-for-kids-and-girls is Medical ID jewelry ranging  from casual to elegant…bracelets, necklaces, ankle bracelets…you can even create your own personalized, custom design. And they have medical-alert watches and pill boxes with built-in alarms.

Medical ID Store http://www.medicalidstore.com/store/WsDefault.asp?Cat=ChildMedicalIdWatches also has medical alert watches in 4 stylish designs, with custom engraving on the back and a  medical emblem on the front watch face and on the strap. There are also some unique products like child ID zipper pulls and cultured pearl baby bracelets.

Peace of Mind Jewelry http://peaceofmindjewelry.com/charity.htm#Epilepsy_Awareness_Bracelet has Czech bead and cane glass bracelets in shades of purple which include a sterling silver awareness charm. Best of all, $10 of your purchase is donated to the Epilepsy Foundation.

Fiddledeeids http://www.fiddledeeids.com/ boasts a whole array of beaded medical alert bracelets, charms, you name it. And each bracelet is customized and engraved for you — FREE.

Sticky Jewelry http://www.stickyj.com/ has cool Pandora style bracelets, beaded bracelets, bangles and lots of fashion forward medical alert jewelry.

While there are tons of fun and attractive children’s jewelry out there, it’s also important to know about the Medical Alert Foundation.  http://www.medicalert.org/

Medics recognize it and you can change your child’s information, when needed. (Like if their meds change.) They also know whom to contact, especially if your child ends up in the hospital. The price for membership is just $30 a year. And if you have an “Advance Directive,” (always a good idea), they’ll include it with your information — FREE.

Another life-saving option is the Medical Text ID https://www.hopepaige.com/text-id.aspx a powerful Medical ID in case of emergency. It assigns your child a unique personal identification number (PIN) that is displayed on a wallet card, key chain, sticker or snap-on device that can be worn on clothing. The PIN is linked to an online account that you can set up on their secure iB Web site. Your online account has information about who your child is, what medications and allergies they have and up to ten emergency contacts.

A new and clever entry is SquID Squares. SquIDs connect to to your online medical profile and optionally alert emergency contacts by text and/or by email. An EMT or medical care provider can access the medical profile by scanning the QR on the front of the SquID with one of the thousands of FREE apps or by going to the URL found on the back of the SquID. The subscription to the online medical profile is FREE for life. No monthly or yearly fees, ever! Myidsquare.com/products/squid-squares

  6. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and engaging,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy I found this in my search for something relating to this.

  7. Well, a lot of research went into it (as you can tell). But it was fun.

    And I’m happy if I helped you.

    Since I’ve been a writer for 34 years, research goes with the territory!

    Thanks for the compliment.
