Being an outdoors family we have numerous first aid kits, one for the car, the rucksack and oddly even in my handbag. We are often out without kids, beavers and scouts and more often than not when we have younger siblings come along too. This is absolutely fine of course until someone has an accident. Most younger children and I remember my boys being like this too won’t let the cut have a plaster easily put on let alone to being able to cleanse the wound.
The same occurs at home when you’re trying to take their temperature. Kids especially when they aren’t 100% have short attention spans and really do not want to sit still while we take their temperature or calm their down to find out what’s wrong. Something St Johns don’t really cover when you’re on their 1st aid course.
So when I discovered that a dad I used to work with had taken this all on board and made a child friendly first aid kit I was over the moon to review it and introduce you all to it. Yellodoor’s main intention in life is to make you (and your kids smile)

I took this down to a local toddler group to see how the kids found it and I was amazed. For a start it’s not a clinical boring green bag which is whipped out when they fall and the amount who made a grab for the bag to look at the pictures on it were fabulous. They all loved the puppets and half the kids demanded a sticker and plaster to show off and examine without having fallen over. It was great to see the tears and upset so quickly turned round to smiles!
|So much fun to play with!|
This is most definitely an essential for any parents or grandparent and I would highly recommend investing in one. You can buy them from Amazon incredibly reasonably as they retail at £14.99 with free delivery. However, to make this even more worthwhile Tim (the dad) has offered you an extra £2 off using code: 8Z7P-DJNEJ3-9G4UCW Is he fab?
Then just to make this even better he’s even offering one to be given away to you. So enter below for your chance to win one of these fabulous kits and turn your kids tears to smiles.
