Is your child allergic to bees or wasps? Sending kids with allergies off to school or camp can be a constant source of worry for parents, but have no fear, AllerMates BIZZZY Insect Sting allergy bracelets are here!
Hi, I’m Iris, mom to 3 awesome kids and founder of AllerMates. When my son Ben was diagnosed with severe food allergies, I wanted to find a way to protect him and teach him about his health concerns in a way that was fun and non-intimidating. One day I drew up a few allergy-related characters and wrote funny stories and poems about each of them. I wanted to be able to use those characters to create various medical awareness accessories that were fun – something that kids would actually want to wear! My kids loved helping me come up with silly names for the characters. Next thing I knew, their friends were asking to see the characters we had created again and again until they too knew all of their names and stories by heart. This showed me that kids are eager to understand medical health issues when there is an engaging way to learn about them and also that kids too can have a sense of style!
