All Hallow’s Eve is coming up. Your kids know it as Halloween and they’ve probably already been excitedly discussing costumes, candy and treats with you and their friends. But walking around at night can also be dangerous because, while some communities have lots of street lights, there are plenty of roads where it’s quite dark between homes.
We at Nite Ize have lots of fun solutions and tips to help you and your little ones stay safe while trick-or-treating -- and best of all, these light up products are all super bright and use replaceable batteries. Costumes may not make it through the night in one piece, but these fun light-up products can long after the candy is all eaten for night time walks, early morning runs, or family bike rides around the neighborhood.
Kids love hanging LED Mini Glowsticks™ from their trick-or-treat containers, which are perfect for keeping them visible and casting light into their treat bag to assess their booty. And since kids are more likely to lose their own shoes than their candy buckets on Halloween, parents get to rest assured that the kids will never be far from their light-up glowsticks.
Pets, parents, and kids all benefit from wearable illumination, and products like the NiteHowl™ LED Safety Necklace are a great addition for every family member. Young'uns get a kick out of the festive lighting, which can be set to glow or flash. For the furry family members, these can be cut down to size making them perfect for Pugs and Great Danes alike. And parents who don't necessary want to dress up in a costume, can still partake in a little extra fun while escorting kids.
Ditch the candle and add a little extra color to your Jack-O-Lanterns by putting a Disc-O Select NiteGem inside. This waterproof light means that a little rain (or snow) won't put a damper on your pumpkin fun, plus you can choose from one of six colors or leave it in color-changing Disc-O mode.
If you are trick-or-treating in a particularly dark area, another great addition that you can reuse for your night runs or winter biking is the LED TagLit™. With strong magnets built inside, these can be clipped to shirts, capes, or wolverine fur to ensure that drivers see your little ones well before anyone crosses the street.
One of my personal favorites is the BugLit® LED Micro Flashlight because of its legs. These can easily be twisted to cling to various parts of a costume, and in the dark they look creepy. You can also get creative and glue glow-in-the-dark googly-eyes to ‘em for extra creepiness. And most kids love a little benign creepy!
Finally, we parents know the challenge of walking around with little ones excited about trick-or-treating and getting way more candy than is probably good for them. That’s why a hot beverage - or other brew of your choice - tucked into a Traveler™ Drink Holster might well make this one of the best family adventures you’ll have all year!
Happy Halloween from the team at Nite Ize!
