ALLERBLING Food Allergy Alert Bracelet is a visual educational tool and a conversation piece that has the potential to save children's lives by raising awareness of a child's food allergies. Allerbling Wristband is cute and approachable, so kids will want to wear it. Yet it is clearly marked as a medical product for children's caregivers. It displays the iconic symbols of the food products that are risky to the children, so their teachers and caregivers can be constantly reminded at a glance. We believe the Allerbling allergy alert wristband will help young children, ages three and up; as they learn to read and talk about the ingredients in the food they eat; and what is not safe for them. It is a product that reduces children's health risk and that is no child's play!
ALLERGY AWARENESS - As a mom with a child who had food allergies I was constantly worried about leaving my child places where others might not be aware of the dangers of her food allergies. Allerbling Food Allergy Alert bracelet is a great solution for children with food allergies. I love that it is colorful and cute. My daughter would actually want to wear this cute bracelet! And since it comes with 2 sizes of bracelet in the package it will fit her for a long while.
Frequently Asked Questions
1. Why Allerbling Food Allergy Alert Bracelet?
When the manufactures one-year son was diagnosed with a severe allergy to peanuts, among other food items, they searched for a product, which would help them highlight his food allergies to his caregivers. They wanted to keep him safe, when he was not in their care. So they created Allerbling!
2. How do I insert the allergy charms into the wristband?
It is easy! Simply stretch the wristband a little with one hand, and elongate a hole. Then squeeze the charm backing and insert it partially into the hole and pull the backing through the other side - a bit like threading a needle. DO NOT use a sharp object to elongate the hole. That's it. Continue until you have installed all of the charms your child needs.
3. How many allergy charms can the Allerbling allergy alert bracelet wristband accommodate?
The wristband has five holes and can accommodate four allergy charms plus the recommended medic charm.
4. Is there latex in the wristbands or the charms?
No. The wristbands and charms are 100% silicone and latex-free.
5. My child needs six allergy charms, what should I do?
Please use the wristband with at least four of your child's allergies. Allerbling is a conversation starter and it will give your child more confidence to speak up about their food and other allergies to those adults who may be serving them food at school, on a play date, at a sleepover or at camp.
6. My son is allergic only to peanuts, what should I do with all of the extra holes in the wristband?
Many parents will order several peanut food allergy charms (and tree nut charms to be safe) and place them in the otherwise unused holes in the Allerbling allergy alert bracelet, providing extra visibility to the child's peanut allergy. The same can be done with any child's single food allergy.
7. If the wristbands included in the Allerbling kit do not fit my child, what should I do?
We also offers two additional wristband sizes - XS (132mm) and XL (180mm), mailed in individual packages. Please contact us to order these.
8. My daughter is allergic to strawberries and sesame seeds?
Five new food allergy charms have been released, including: strawberries, sesame, corn, coconut and chocolate. Please visit our online store to order. Allerbling allergy alert bracelet continues to develop its Customer Wish List of new food and non-food allergy charms - this helps our Product Development team when designing new charms. Please contact us if you have ideas for new charms or new products.
9. Why the red medic charm?
The Allerbling wristband is not a toy or kid jewelry. It is an important visual communication and awareness tool for your child. It can help your child to communicate important information about his or her food allergies, to day care providers, preschool and elementary school teachers, play date moms, etc.
10. Can I get any other color wristband?
Orange is our color of choice because it represents caution and becomes a silent communicator of your child's food allergic conditions.
11. Can my child wear the Allerbling allergy alert bracelet, with the food allergy charms, swimming?
Yes! The wristband is so comfortable that you child will want to wear it 24/7. Our son wears his Allerbling swimming, to soccer, to Tae Kwon Do and to sleep.
