Medical Buddies to the Rescue

If you were ever sick as a child, then you know how scary it was to go to the Emergency Room or to be admitted into the hospital. Kids still face these fears today – and if they are a special needs child, the medical world can be extra frightening. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were toys, dvd’s and television programming to alleviate some of the stress of the being ill?

Well look no further, its Medical Buddies to the rescue. This group of cute, fun characters each represent a different instrument that doctors and nurses will use to diagnose your sick child. There’s Ban-Dio (bandage), Ackobar (alcohol), Gaz-oo (guaze), Te’Per (tape), Seth-O (stethoscope) and Kit (first aid kit). This group of lively characters will take the fear out of routine medical procedures by explaining it in a fun and child-friendly way.

The Morning Buddies Show has also been created to let your child view the characters at work. Plop them down in front of the dvd or web show to watch an exciting adventure of the “buddies” helping ease the fears of a sick child.

We all want our children to live happy, healthy lives, however sickness and accidents do occur, learning with the Medical Buddies can ease the stress of being sick.

Check out their program at; http://www.wordcast.tv/ufl

Be sure to pop by tomorrow as I will have an interview with founder of the Medical Buddies, Teresa Freeman.

That is so smart! I think having these would make my job at the hospital WAY more fun! (Im a pediatric nurse) Awesome product!

First of all, great idea in this post. As a former Army medic from the Ped's ward, and as a mom, there is a lot of value in anything that can help calm a child's fears during medical procedures.

I found your blog through the 'Critique my Blog' list, and I think it's great! Lots of good information for parents and a family friendly layout.

This would be a lot of fun for my kids. They love to pretend to be at the Dr. office. There was a time when my oldest was terrified of the Dr. and this would have been nice
