We are up in Scotland at the moment, until the husband comes back from deployment, so we didn’t get to hit up our usual military base fireworks show for bonfire night this year. We had to go on the hunt for a new location to ooh and ahh at some lovely lights in the sky, and stay cosy next to a big bonfire. We ended up heading to Banchory, and my goodness it was a good show. We wrapped up warm (the weather was awful) and made sure we took the toddler’s new ear defenders from 3M, so she could enjoy the fireworks as much as we did.
We were sent a little package from the lovely people at 3M with everything we needed to enjoy a family bonfire night together, including the pair of ear defenders. Little I was also lucky enough to get a hat and scarf set and a glow wand. There were some pretty delicious snacks for us all to enjoy too.
In the past, when we have taken Little I to fireworks shows, we have just popped a hat on her over her ears to protect her from the noise. We used to stay quite far away from the ‘action’ but she always still seemed a little bit spooked by it all.
This year, with her 3M ear defenders, she was more than happy to be closer to the show and seemed to enjoy it a lot more. They were great for us as well, as parents, because they gave us peace of mind knowing that her ears were completely protected from any loud bangs and noises.
She actually ended up keeping them on for the whole evening and even tried to wear them in the bath! They look great and are a good price. You can take them apart to clean pretty easily and they feel really comfortable. The cushions relieve pressure around the ears and allow the ear defenders to be worn comfortably and for a substantial period of time, if needed. We would definitely recommend them. Especially as most parents will find themselves in a situation where their little one’s ears will need protected from loud noises.
Rich Davies, marketer at 3M, says:
“Over the next few months there will be plenty of reasons to celebrate and fireworks are no doubt going to be everywhere, particularly with Bonfire Night, Christmas and New Year around the corner. To stop loud bangs from fireworks ruining your celebrations, you can protect your children with Peltor Kids Ear Muffs by 3M. These hearing defenders will allow you to take your youngster outside to enjoy the displays, rather than having to resort to going back inside.”
