I can distinctly recall a time when I was a little kid - distracted by some cool new action figures in the lower-level toy department at Wieboldts - and when I approached my "Mom" - a lady turned around and revealed herself not to be my Mom, but a lady with similar hair and a similar jacket. I was terrified - and while I wasn't truly "lost" (my Mom was an aisle or two over), I could've been because I wasn't staying with my grownup like I should've been. Now, as a parent myself, I'm even more terrified of being separated from my girls - especially since they have a habit of just taking off. For peace of mind, there's a product out called SafetyTat, and with summer here and plenty of adventures taking place, I received a few samples that I was eager to try out.

The peel-and-stick (Quick Stick) Write-On temporary tattoos that we received are simple to apply, and each comes with a marker to write your mobile number on - after the tat is applied to each child. Waterproof, we've used these for both girls at the pool, and they'd be even better used at the beach, zoo or theme parks - anywhere that a chance of getting separated exists. Place the tattoo on the child's forearm, and instruct them that if they're lost, to find another parent or go to a pre-determined meeting/safe spot to have a grownup call the number.


While the Quick Stick Write-On tats are convenient and simple, SafetyTat has a full line of temporary tattoos available, some of which are water-applied like traditional temporary tattoos, and can be customized when ordered online. In addition to the tats to "bring kids back," parents with little ones who have food allergies and such might be interested to know that SafetyTat offers Allergy and Medical Alert tats - especially useful with activities, camps, etc. in full swing.

TRF ApprovedSix-packs of tattoos start around $10, and can be ordered direct from the SafetyTat website.

We're ordering more shortly for the rest of summer and back-to-school.
