July's highlight is a review of medical alert bracelets that I personally own. I needed a toddler-sized wristband, wanted the medical alert sign visible from an adult's height, and wanted one that a toddler could not remove. I also looked for one that could be worn all of the time without removing to swim. I decided on a Sticky J bracelet with an engraved plate. Later, I was gifted an Allerbling bracelet kit. I needed help with my Sticky J order and their customer service department was very nice and helpful. They guided me through their products to find the best fit for my needs. Allerbling is one of the nicest companies I have interacted with in a long time. I give two thumbs up to these companies for their passion.
Allerbling sells only their bracelet and charms. The full bracelet kit comes with a small wristband and a large wristband, so the child can grow into the next size or share with a sibling or friend, and a set of charms. The bracelet is very visible from an adult height and can be worn all of the time. You can purchase bracelets and charms separately to customize the bracelet to your allergies. I also like that they include less common allergy charms. The fit will depend on the wrist size, the small band moves around a little bit on a young toddler wrist but that has never bothered me. It is not easily removed by a toddler, and the charms cannot be easily removed. Allerbling's bracelet is meant for children ages 3 and up due to small parts.
Both sites include dimensions of the products but I included a ruler in the above picture to give a point of reference. You can also see the different clasp types and materials. The companies are nice, products are great quality and prices are affordable. I chose to purchase a bracelet as a reminder to people when we are in public. I think I am asked about the Allerbling bracelet more often than the others, although we like all of them. I hope this review was helpful!
