art. house. mum.
I remember my GP telling me once about a study which apparently proved that Mums could more accurately tell the temperature of their children without a thermometer than seasoned family doctors could. I still bowed to pressure and bought a thermometer... haven't ever used it. The moral of the story... just because a Chemist sells it doesn't mean it'll help you look after your kids when they are sick.
What will help, however, is Ava the Elephant.
Ava talks. And feeds the kids their medicine and supplements through her spout while they hold her ears. She's cute.
The day that we picked up our (free sample) Ava from the post office was a conveniently sick day kid-wise. Without being too liberal I was able to find a relevant medicine or supplement for each eager mouth which would actually help their precious little bodies.
And then they begged for more doses.
Ava will be staying at our house. But you know, I think that there are places where she would be even more appreciated. We've had kids who are worryingly sick before. When I promised myself that I wouldn't let them be admitted to hospital through emergency ever again. At those times, with a two year old fighting for air I would have loved to give her her medicine in a loveable dispenser. To make those hard times just a little more friendly. To distract her from the fact that she was stuck again in a hospital bed and not in her bedroom with her other half. Ava, how I wish I had had you to make her smile then.
You know what else I was thinking that Ava would be perfect for? A new baby gift. Or a baby shower gift. She strikes the perfect balance between function and fun and she is totall unisex. She is the item which will be stolen from the dishwasher (yes, she's dishwashable) to be played with. She has no age limit (my nearly five year olds were just as besotted as my two year old), but I really think that she would be best as an investment for babies. Even the fact that the dropper only measures up to 5mL makes it more suitable for little ones.
Apparently Ava the Elephant is an award winner in America. Quite frankly, I see why.
But enough of my trumpet blowing. The people of Fab Innovations have kindly allowed me to host a giveaway with three winners, each to receive their own Ava the Elephant Medicine Dispenser.
