Ouchies review and giveaway!!

Being a mom of a toddler, I'm bound to need a bandage from time to time. And being Coopers mom, I need a bandage all.the.time! He loves to play doctor and pretend we're all hurt and a bandaid is the perfect cure according to Dr. Cooper!
We've always used the plain brown bandaids because I'm not a fan of the characters that are displayed on the popular brand of bandaids.

I discovered and I fell in love with the Ouchies products after getting an email about them from my friend. These band aids are so much fun! There are many styles to choose from. I was given the opportunity to review 3 tins of band aids from Ouchies. I chose the Mr Men and Little Miss because I absolutely love those characters, and have since I was a kid. And I also chose the Ouchies Jr Olivia prints because Cooper is a big Olivia fan. The first thing I noticed were the tins they came in. I love the fact they come in tins, it reminds me of the style of band aids my own mom used and who doesn't love something nostalgic? The tins are entertaining with pictures and blurb on the side with the directions for use...it's actually really cute how they instruct you but I wont spoil it, I'll let you find out for yourself!

I actually was (unfortunate) enough to use my first Ouchies right away, as Cooper had a small blister from his new pair of shoes. He loved picking out which character would help him feel better. He of course chose an Olivia band aid. These band aids are soft and plyable, not like the crunchy store brand kind. And what I loved most of all, and if you have a toddler you will too, is that if it gets wet it stays on! Even better, is that it doesnt hurt to peel off despite how strong it is. That was a huge relief to me because my little man is a touch dramatic when it comes to his "owies" so the less pain the better! He loved these bandages so much he of course had several imaginary injuries that needed covered up :D


There are so many fun styles to choose from, and to name a few: 4Boyz, 4Girlz, Trucktown, and you can even design your own!! I didnt notice that style until after I got my package to review, those ones would be so great for kids!
Ouchies says they "Hide your wound, not your style!" and they are not lying! Your kid will love these, I know mine did (and of course, I do too!)
