Andrew's new allergy bracelets

Remember a few weeks ago, I got some silicone bracelets from Australia, but they'd had a mixup on the order? Well, the replacement ones arrived last week, and here's what they look like.

They're a great fit on his little 3-year-old wrist, and it's now very easy to read the writing on the bracelets. The inside of the bracelet still has contact cell #s on it, but they're just indented, not in dark text.

I'm happy with these, especially at the price and customizability. They're from Buzzmeband, in Australia. Shipping seemed to take 2-3 weeks, but it's 2 weeks from the US, so only an extra few days from the other side of the world.

Now, if only I could get Andrew to keep them on his wrists -- he'll put them on, but then takes them off again after 20 minutes or so.

UPDATE: January 3, 2009
Buzzmeband seems to have gone out of business. See this post for another fun beaded allergy bracelet from Australia.

Hi! Thanks for posting about BUZZMEBANDS! I just ordered some for my daughter who has several food allergies (dairy, soy, peanuts, tree nuts). It's also nice to hear from someone in Canada! I'm in T.O. but am originally from Vancouver. Keep up the great work with the blog. Very enjoyable and informative!

Thanks for the info and posting this on your blog. I found it through google. My son is allergic to eggs and milk and I've been trying to find a customizable rubber band (instead of those heavy metal bands). Thanks for the recommendation! I put my order in today!
