FlashBrite Reflective Stick-On Patches

You know, this is not a bad idea. I just got an email from the folks at FlashBrite, and thought it was smart enough to share.

These reflective stick-on patches shine when hit with direct light (think: car headlights), and are great for Halloween, bike safety, and after-dark dog walks.

You can purchase them online from the FlashBrite website ($3.99 per package), or at a few brick-and-mortar stores, including JoAnn Fabrics and Crafts.

    I found them over the weekend at my local A.C. MOORE. My little one loves the pumpkin and put it on her backpack

    This is actually a brilliant idea. We’ve been using them (well, a different brand from the dollar store) with our daughter for a few years now. They work really well.

    On the same note- we also deck her out with as many glow bracelets and necklaces as she’ll let us!! Safety first, especially when it’s littles that are more excited about getting to the next house than road safety!!

    Anthony, that’s an ok idea, except that a kid shining a flashlight in front would not necessarily be visible to a car approaching from behind, and it requires a hand, which a kid might want to use to grab candy, making it pretty likely that the kid would just dump the flashlight into the candy bag.

    Yes, this is a great idea to keep the little ones safe, but not just during Halloween holidays- all year long, finding a reusable idea could be useful, or maybe something a little more fashionable? :D MiniHipster.com
