How do I put the bracelets on my child's wrist?
Bracelets come with an adhesive strip on the back. Wrap around your child's wrist and press the adhesive strip into place.
Can my child remove the bracelet?
Bracelets can only be removed if they were sized incorrectly when put on. By taking care to put the bracelet on properly, it can only be removed with scissors. Alternatively, bracelets can be put on too tight and will be uncomfortable for your child. (Please note that older children as well as VERY tenacious kids might be able to figure out a way to remove the wristbands. Also, kids with sensory issues may find the wristbands unbearable.)
Can I use the bracelets in the pool?
Yes. Bracelets are water-resistent and do great in the pool, bath and at the beach.
Do the bracelets rip or tear?
It is virtually impossible for any child (or adult) to rip or tear TigTagz bracelets. Kids have even tried to chew them off with no luck! (Please note that older children as well as VERY tenacious kids might be able to figure out a way to remove the wristbands. Also, kids with sensory issues may find the wristbands unbearable.)
What age is too young/too old for TigTagz ID bracelets?
TigTagz bracelets are perfect for any child that can slip out of your sight and not be able to effectively communicate your phone number to a good samaritan. Ages vary from child to child.
What information should I put on my child's wristband?
TigTagz does not recommend using a child's or parent's name on wristbands. A simple statement such as "I'm lost please call" followed by a phone number is best.
How do the medical alerts work?
Medical alerts can be invaluable and are printed in red. Remember that the alert should be brief and to the point. For example: "PEANUT ALLERGY" or "SEIZURES" or "I HAVE AUTISM". You do not need to include extensive medical information as the point of the bracelet is to allow you and your child to be reunited immediately. Put the most important information on the bracelet.
Can I put my own graphics on the bracelets?
Yes. For an extra fee we can easily design special bracelets for you. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Who else can use the bracelets?
TigTagz bracelets can also be used for camps, birthday parties and group events. The uses are limitless! Be creative.
