There are few moments in life more anxiety-filled for parents than momentarily losing track of a toddler at an amusement park or other public place.
It happens to the best of us, toddlers have minds of their own and fast little legs; look away for a second and you’re toast. Now there is a great new child personal safety device that will help locate your child in a crisis.
When a child runs off, all kinds of terrible thoughts run through a parent’s mind. A few years ago, I was at the mall with my son and I must have looked away for half a second and he was off to the races. When I realized he took off, I nearly lost it. I looked around frantically for about a minute and ended up finding him playing in the window display of a clothing store. Thankfully, it ended well but there are some bad people out there. Anything can happen and it is crucial to find your young child as quickly as possible in the event that they wander off.
The Child Locator is a fabulous little gadget available at MyPreciousKid.com. The Child Locater is made up of two parts, the little key-chain worn by the parent and the tiny teddy bear worn by the child. The key chain is simply a transmitter and the teddy bear a receiver. In the event that you can’t find your child, simply push the button on the transmitter and the teddy bear, worn by your child, will emit an 86 decibel chirping noise.
It has to be said that 86 decibels is pretty loud and your child might find it a little “disconcerting” when their cute little teddy-bear key chain starts screeching like a banshee but they’ll get over it. As you can see from the picture above, the bears are very cutesy and available in brown or pink. They are just 3 inches in length can be easily hooked onto a child’s shoe lace or belt.
