The 20th Mommy Review

The 20th Mommy Review



Today's Mommy Review is for a UV Detectable Turner Tag by Sunthings Charming!


Cute and useful! Here's some more info on it:
Turner Tags for Tykes™ are a reminder system utilizing UV reactive beads to alert you that it is important to protect your baby from the harmful rays. They can be used a multitude of ways and are completely customizable to suit your taste. Choose your bead colors and choose a charm, and we will send you the Turner Tags for Tykes™ that you designed!

Turner Tags were created by Lauren Turner. She used to be a Science Teacher, but became a stay at home mom after her baby was born. One day when sifting through her old science supplies, she found some UV Detecting Beads and was inspired to use them to make a reminder of when to put sunscreen and a hat on her son. Soon other mommies began to notice and want one, and Turner Tags was born!

I love having a Turner Tag for Calvin. I am such an incredibly forgetful person ever since I've become a mom. I'm always forgetting something, it's horrible. With my Turner Tag, I have it either attached to my diaper bag or stroller, and it is an instant reminder to put some sunscreen on Calvin (and myself). Lucky for me, I keep a small bottle of sunscreen in my bag, so I at least don't forget that. Plus it's so cute to have on there anyways :) Also, with it she included an extra bead that's attached to a ribbon so I can test my sunscreen. If after I put my sunscreen on it, it still changes color in the sun, then I need a stronger sunscreen! How handy is that? Love it :) It is so important to protect your child's and I love that Lauren came up with a product to help us do that.

I love the cloth diaper charm. We are cloth nappy users and feel it is an important part of bring our babies in to this world- that we do it with the least impact possible.
Thanks,

Rocking horse for me- thanks so much for the giveaway. Sun awareness is so important (I have an uncle with skin cancer) and I really appreciate the attention these sorts of products bring to the cause.

It was kind of hard to find where in the site you can find the choice of charms and beads. But when I did I like the bear charm with blue and orange beads. What a great idea!!

I would choose blue (my favorite color) and yellow (my son's favorite color) beads along with the Teddy Bear charm. I am hoping that my son does not get my skin - I slab on SPF 60+ anytime I'm out in the sun for an extended period!

gkstratos said...

The Love charm would be my pick.

The Rocking Horse is both universal and great charm for any age.

This is a great product. A lot of parents easily misjudge intense the sun's rays are to tender flesh.

Case in point was a father out working on his his grill next to a mobile home, while his toddler daughter was playing with her dolls right next to him in the grass and on the concrete patio. By the time he had finished puttering about his daughter had suffered a series of sever burns from only a few hours of direct and reflected UV light.

UV is sneaky in that you do not need direct or obviously sunny days to be overwhelmed by it.

These beads can be used for many years and as a reminder to adults about avoiding too much sun!

I would definately pick the pacifier charm with blue beads - as my little guy is definately a 'suckie man' - I'm afraid I may have to pry it from his hands for his high school graduation photos if i'm not careful, but for now it's cute :)
It's always nice to have a reminder of UV awareness. My father had a cancerous mole removed when I was just little, and I can't even bring myself to imagine what would have happened if all didn't go so well. This wonderful product will hopefully make sure that less people have to worry about such dreadful things!

Thank you for the chance to win one,
