    What a brilliant idea. They are also quite pretty. Pity they do not make them for adults.

    What a cutie!! I saw these a while ago and made a pair for my daughter and her husbands baby hope chest. When I saw these, I remembered how many times my son would love to run from us and play hide and seek in places like Target!!! One time Papa and I met up and I saw him without Mason and FREAKED OUT! He just says, Oh, he ran into some clothes, then I could not catch up to him..and now can’t find him. He says this calmly, like it was nothing! I must have really made a scene because I had several empolyees and security surrounding me in seconds. Doors were covered by employees, as others scattered to go look. The Target employees were great! I stood at the junction where two long isles met, that was right by both doors leading into the mall, and outside… watching for him. Then I saw him, he was 3 at the time, he was coming around the corner way down at the end of one isle near the back of the store…you could see him smiling and giggleing thinking he was playing a game, the little stinker. I yelled at people….”Grab that little boy, grab him!!” and people looked at me…then totally ignored me!! I was running to try and get him down this long isle, and people just turned the other way! Could not believe it. Only one older gentlemen that was near Mason went to grab him, while Mason tried to runn the other way into the middle of a clothing rack. But, the gentlemen was able to grab him and brought him back to me. I was in tears, crying and thanked him profusely, because you know all the horrible things that ran through my mind!!
    So, remembering all the times he would pull these kinds of stunts, I wished there was some way to hear where he was! So, I made a few pairs of these anklets with bells, enough to last until way into the toddler years for my daughters baby’s hope chest. These are a must have, just to save yourself from all those moments of terror when you look around and can’t find your baby, toddler. (he hated the stroller and holding hands and was too heavy to carry, he had to be walking or running!) Some kids stay, hold your hand or will ride in the stroller…not this little runner. Funny, he got a scholarship for track!! That is how much he liked to run! He even set records and won State every year he ran! He even came within secounds of meeting the times to qualify for Nationals and the Olympics in his firt time trails at college. This kid loves to run!
    Next, they will develope a GPS chip you can use to locate them…or have they already? I could have used that on my kids when they were teens!

    Those are such cute little anklets. I love the idea of something like an anklet or a bracelet for your little toddler. Plus, the little bells on it would help you know where your kid is all the time. That is such a smart idea, and the bells are so cute too!
