What we thought: Of course fun band-aids are always a hit with children, my son too. The best part about Sports Shield is the variety of sports that you can get. You can find boys themed and girls themed ones too. They come in baseball, basketball, football, soccer, cheerleading, girls soccer and fun fashion.

Over the last few years my son had played a variety of sports: soccer, baseball, football and swimming. It didn't take too many practices for me to realize that it was important to have a few things handy...and bandages was one of those. I just made it a point to always have them in my purse at practices and games. Several times they were used, and most times by someone other than my son. It was good to have the bandages handy to give to another parent. They are very useful. And even better is having the bandage that features the kids sports. They love to use them too.

Where to buy: You can get Sports Shield Bandages through their website-, on Amazon, and a few other online retailers.
