The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that the Swine Flu is now widespread in 43 states last week which is slowly declining from the previous 46. The concerns escalate as the upcoming holiday events are upon us. More people will be gathering and spreading germs this Thanksgiving making it imperative to take measures to protect ourselves and children by implementing proper hand washing.
Healthy Hands have made it fun and easy for kids’ to learn to wash their hands “the right way” with the Disney Musical Hand Wash Timers. The timers fit on any liquid soap dispenser (standard, wide, or thin nozzle brands) and feature kids’ favorite characters and tunes along with flashing lights to help encourage children to wash their hands for 20 to 25 seconds ( the recommended time for killing germs). The natural motion of pressing down on the pump to dispense the soap activates the musical timer and your child will know to wash their hands for the entire tune.
“I’ve worked for years to spread the principles of healthy hand hygiene” said Dr. William Sawyer, founding member of the Clean Hands Coalition and creator of the Henry The Hand foundation. “I’m a major supporter of new and innovative ways for parents to get their kids washing their hands longer, and the Healthy Hands Musical Hand Wash Timers are a great approach.”
For years, parents have tried to find “tricks” to get their kids to wash longer – sing “Happy Birthday” or say your A-B-C’s twice, there’s no need for that anymore.
This is a wonderful invention! Aiden (2 years old) is still a little young to gain the full concept of hand washing but he was definitely interested in the Disney Princess Ariel Timer when it began playing the tune “Under The Sea.” I know when the moment comes to teach him the musical timer is going to come in handy and much easier for me to get him interested.
Healthy Hands Musical Hand Wash Timers are available for sale at www.GetHealthyHands.com and select retailers. Each unit plays 1000+ times and can be purchased for only $3.99! The timers are currently available in two styles- Ariel (plays “Under The Sea”) or Cars (plays “Real Gone”). They make EXCELLENT inexpensive stocking stuffers!
