I am packing up the vacation gear and getting ready to load the car, but I suddenly remember that I did not pack earplugs. Every year we go away and the kids play in the water so much, or should I say underwater so much that one of the ends up with the very painful; swimmer’s ear. Not this year, things are going to be different. Get ready, set, SWIM, dive, jump and frolic in the water because the summer heat is on. Are you packing up and leaving on vacation like we are? The kids love the swimming part of our vacation the best and they spend so much time underwater you might come to believe they are part fish! With any summer time fun comes the opportunity for ailment and with swimming the chance of swimmers ear. Don’t live in fear of those trips to the water park, pools, beaches or firework displays as I have a great way to protect swimmers(ears) this summer and even for those little ones who don’t like the boom of a firecracker, get ready to plug it all out with AquaEars. Traveling families can achieve safe and comfortable recreation and travel for the ears and decrease occurrence of swimmer’s ear through their use. AquaEars protect the ears from loud noises like fireworks and water that enters through the ear canal creating horrible pains in the ear known as swimmer’s ear. These are soft, latex-free ear plugs that offer sound protection ratings of up to 22 decibels and they come in a variety of their favorite characters: SpongeBob SquarePants, The Little Mermaid, Dora, Disney, Cars, Nemo, Hello Kitty and the Mickey Mouse. AquaEars characters such as Hello Kitty, SpongeBob, Little Mermaid, etc. make them earplugs kids actually want to wear and reduce the chance for water-related infections like swimmer’s ear at the same time. You can also use them to reduce noise at loud events such as outdoor concerts, fireworks or for when you need some extra quite time to study. These are nothing fancy, just simple to use and they have received the GoodHousekeeping Seal. Simply place the AquaEar over a clean dry ear opening, and press, do not jam into this opening and it is that easy. These are reusable plug that you can mold over and over again and they have their own carrying case. I will tell you that once the item is molded the licensed character does disappear (you can see above) but the color of the AquaEar stays. (SpongeBob decal disappears from molding but the Yellow stays).
Don’t let the kids put up a fight, give them their favorite character and let them laugh, splash, and play the day away in the water while you have a piece of mind that you have offered them some form of protection from water, soil, sand and dirt that often ends up in their ears when playing on family vacations and days at the pool. Happy Summer.
*always watch your children when they are in water, or near water.
