This is a First Aid Kit specifically designed for the needs of the family.

Would you recommend this to other mums?
Emma: I would recommend this product as it looks good and it's easy to find, grab or throw into a handbag or changing bag without taking up too much space. I do not go anywhere without this kit and it will be coming on our family holiday with us. The little booklet is handy and informative and it is obvious that the company has put time and thought into this kit.
Darchana: The kit contains strong scissors and a burn gel, which many other kits do not have. It comes in a compact, sturdy but soft case. The case is a pretty colour without being too girly. The case has a shiny water-resistant outer surface so no soggy plasters if something leaks inside your main bag. There is space in the bag to add a travel thermometer and some sachets of painkillers if you want.
Naomi: It is a very compact design, easy to use and has loads of space in it to add extra there. I like how the casing is wipeable so it doesn’t matter if it gets dirty or wet. It is not that heavy to carry around in your changing bag or car so you have always got it with you on-the-go. The pattern is a lovely bright as well.
How did this product make your life easier?
Annabel: It's so handy to have everything you need for small emergencies in this neat little bag. The design is really well thought out and it really does have everything you would need for accidents - we all know little ones like to get into all sorts of trouble! It is so light and compact that you can put it in the bottom of your bag and forget it's there until you need it!
Kirsty: You don’t have to worry about carrying individual items around with you, such as plasters, because the bag has everything you would need. At first glance, everything seems to be of a high quality and standard, which you sometimes do not get with other cheaper alternatives. It’s compact so it is not heavy or bulky.
Helen: The Family First Aid Kit packs a lot of punch for something so small. The kit is small enough for larger handbags, changing bags, glove compartments and wouldn’t take up much space in a suitcase if you were heading off on holiday. I know I have an easy go-to without having to trawl through a first aid cupboard or box which can easily get messy in the home.
Would you choose this product to win?
Laura: I do think that the mini first aid kit should win this category. Not only are the contents of the kit second to none, but the bag is super stylish to carry around with the rest of my baby's stuff! It is also a great size (relatively small in comparison to others) to transport, meaning I can take it wherever I go.
Laura: I think this product definitely has a place in any day bag or maybe in carry-on luggage when travelling abroad. I really like the distinctive design which helps it stand out in your bag and would make it easier to find when in a stressful situation. It's also cheap enough to buy a few which can be kept in various useful places.
Emma: I absolutely love this product. I really appreciate the tough cut scissors and the fact it has everything I need for minor accidents that all kids big and small have whilst out and about. The fact the plasters match the pattern on the kit is a cute touch. Being a Muslim, I really appreciate that the wipes are non-alcoholic.
What changes would you make to this product?
Darchana: This product is great and doesn't really need much improvement. It contains all the essential items and the design/materials are perfect. Additional extras that might be useful in the kit would be a strip thermometer to check for a fever, some steri-strips to close large wounds and a foil blanket in case of hypothermia.
Naomi: I would only replace the tweezer as I didn't think it was good quality. They don’t pinch very well so you couldn’t have got a good grip on a splitter that was embedded in the skin. Apart from that, there was nothing else I would change.
Annabel: I think this kit could also include sachets of antiseptic cream and maybe something for bug bites and stings. Perhaps a thermometer would be useful as well. I understand that these would make the kit more expensive and I think the current price point is ideal for the size of the kit. Other than that, the kit is a perfect size and has a great selection of products!
