In this day and age, at least a quarter of your customers and clients are bound to have children. Although you may not realize it, this is a huge market to target your promotional products to! I love a company that gives away a free promo product that is safe for my daughter to play with, and she loves it as well.
Besides the obvious positive exposure that kid-friendly freebies bring, everyone knows that a happy baby makes a happy mommy (which, in turn, always makes a happy household)!
Here are my picks for innovative promo products that are safe for children:
Whether we like it or not, every child will get sick. And all the parents out there know what that means: it’ll eventually be time for medicine! No child likes taking medicine, but you can make the experience a little more fun by using this cute, double-purpose kids’ spoon. It comes in a variety of fun colors (like purple, pink, blue, or green) and it has an adorable teddy bear face at the top! If you’re going to have to give children medicine, then you might as well make it a little bit better by using this fantastic product.
Who doesn’t love rubber duckies? Ernie from Sesame Street does, I know I sure do, and so does my daughter! We have ducky everything at my house — from clothes, toys, and books — but nothing beats the age-old classic of the rubber ducky bath toy. In my household, NO bath can be had without it. Really. There’s no better way to promote your company and put smiles on children’s faces than with this bath time classic.
In this economy, we all need to be saving what we can. Start teaching a child the importance of money and financial stability ASAP with this translucent piggy bank. Whether they are trying to save up for ice cream, a new toy, or a new bike, it’s a great way to introduce the importance of saving while simultaneously making your company a household name.
#4: Bubble Bauble
Like most kids and imaginative adults, my daughter LOVES bubbles! It doesn’t matter if it’s in the air or floating in her bath tub; she’s one happy camper as long as she has bubbles of some sort. If your promotion involves children in some way, then this is a safe bet. Give a child hours of popping fun with these bubbles. With your logo printed on the side, you can go spread smiles, giggles, and your brand all over town!
#5: Plush Tropical Bear (Ocean Blue)
Ok, I must admit…I picked this particular product because I LOVE it! Blue is my favorite color so to have a blue teddy bear is a 2 for 1 deal! But in general, teddy bears and stuffed animals are great promotional items that are safe for kids. You can dress them up or customize them to be a certain theme — the possibilities are endless! Print your logo on the tiny t-shirt (pick from more than 12 colors) and your brand is sure to get a few mentions. I still have a teddy bear wearing a Cubs jersey in my home, which was a gift from a carpet company I worked with, and my little girl loves it to this day. And you know what? Everytime I see it, I think of the company’s thoughtfulness and see their name. For a business, what more could you ask for?
These are just a few of my favorite picks of the many things QLP has to offer. And remember, just like any purchase you’d make, double and triple check that an item meets your approval before giving it to a child! Items with small parts should never be given to infants or toddlers.
