It may almost be March, but cold & flu season is not over just yet! Keeping little hands from touching runny noses is Sniffle Buddies – ingenious little cuffs that can be worn to tend to itches, sniffles, and tickles. These ultra-soft, washable wristbands teach young children “mindful” wiping by keeping germ-ridden hands away from their noses, eyes and mouths. Rather than running after your tot during playtime with a tissue to catch every drip and drop, you can redirect their hands and sleeves by having them wear one of these extremely handy wristbands.

Made in the USA of eco-friendly bamboo & organic cotton, Sniffle Buddies reduce paper waste and as they say, “help to lighten the load of our landfills one sniffle at a time!” This is such a smart idea – “Mom” loves that she can send her daughter off to play with ease, knowing that she is not constantly wiping her nose with the back of her hand when she has the sniffles. In addition to being used for colds and allergies, Sniffle Buddies can be used by those with Special Needs to tend to drool, or they can be used as a sweatband for biking, hiking, running, or skiing.

Sniffle Buddies are available in both children’s and adult’s sizes in a wide variety of colors, as well as a dye-free, natural wristband for those with extra sensitivities. To order, visit
