Palm Beach Gardens, FL (PRWEB) January 25, 2010 -- Finally moms and dads have a polite way to tell strangers to look, but do not touch. Mamabears.com, a Web site devoted to providing parents with products that give them a voice, launches Kind Signs, stroller signs that politely, but firmly tell strangers “Your Germs Are Too Big For Me Please Don’t Touch.”
“When my son was born, I was shocked when strangers would touch his hands or ask to hold him. It’s uncomfortable, not to mention it spreads germs,” said Kimberly Levine, President of Kind Signs, Inc. “Kind Signs are a way to have a voice on behalf of little ones and tell others not to touch.”
100 percent of Kind Sign sales through January 31 will be donated to Food for the Hungry (www.fh.org) to help Haiti earthquake victims. Mamabears.com will announce the total donation to the organization on February 1.
“We know our customers and friends can pull together to make an impact for the families and children in Haiti,” said Levine. “This is just one way to support recovery and relief efforts.”
Kind Signs, made of soft, nontoxic silicone, easily attach and detach with a plastic ring and hang on strollers, car seats, bassinets, cribs, diaper bags and even shopping carts. Clearly stating “Your Germs Are Too Big For Me Please Don’t Touch,” the signs communicate straightforward that this baby doesn’t want unsolicited hands or germs and certainly doesn’t want to get sick.
“The flu, H1N1 virus and germs in general are spread by touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then touching eyes, noses, hands or mouths,” said Levine. “So imagine strangers with infected hands touching your child without even asking – it’s scary and frustrating.”
Kind Signs remind others how susceptible babies and children are to infections. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, children less than five years old are at increased risk of complications from influenza (flu), and the risk is greater among children less than two years old. Most importantly, newborns less than six months old represent a particularly vulnerable group.
“This is excellent for motherhood – especially for bashful moms who aren’t sure how to tell people no,” said Theresa Ballou, a new mother. “So many unfamiliar people try to touch, hold or even cough on your baby. These stroller signs provide a way to avoid that awkward conversation.”
Mamabears.com encourages parents to use the signs as a means to say thank you, but no thank you. Kind signs are the same shape as the Mamabears.com logo, a mamabear head. They are available in three colors – blue, orange and pink, are 4” x 3” in size and can be purchased for $7.95 each at www.mamabears.com.
