KTLA: Halloween Family Safety Tips

KTLA: Halloween Family Safety Tips

I was back at KTLA this morning to feature some clever Halloween safety tips for the family! Watch the segment and get more info about the products below.



Switch Witch

Over 6 million children suffer from food allergies and Halloween can be a big challenge for those parents. Switch Witch is the perfect alternative for little ones that aren’t able to enjoy candy this Halloween. Similar to the beloved Elf on a Shelf, children simply set aside the candy they’d like to be “switchcrafted” for a special surprise. Families are free to come up with their own traditions and rules for their Switch Witch, making it a fun fall activity for weeks after Halloween!

$29.99, www.switchwitches.com


Canary Home Surveillance

Keep an eye on your doorstep at home and while you’re out Trick-or-Treating on Halloween with the Canary Flex. Canary Flex is the first and only indoor and outdoor HD security camera that can be used wire-free or plugged-in. This device captures motion with vivid clarity, day or night, so you can have a clear view of who’s approaching your home. Plus, unlike other security cameras, Canary Flex offers a stake mount option so you can easily place your device in a potted plant out of sight. Simply download the Canary app, connect to Wi-Fi and stream live or recorded video to your phone.

Radio Flyer Classic & EZ Fold Wagon

Rather than having to worry about your little Trick-or-Treaters wandering off or running in the streets, have them ride in a wagon from house to house instead! Radio Flyer is the maker of the famous and beloved Little Red Wagon, but what many people don’t know is that they are the safest wagon brand around. Radio Flyer offers wagons for all of your needs. Their Classic Red Wagon is a must-have favorite among parents and children. Featuring an extra long handle for easy pulling and no-pinch ball joint to keep fingers safe. Or, opt for their 3-in-1 EZ Fold Wagon that folds up so you can keep it in the car for on-the-go ease. This wagon also offers the option of adding 2 thick padded seats and seatbelts for extra safety.

$89.99 and up, www.radioflyer.com


BugBand Wristbands and Towelettes

Keep disease-carrying mosquitos, ticks, and other annoying insects away while Trick-Or-Treating with BugBand. The glow-in-the-dark band keeps wearers visible at night while repeling insects naturally by forming a protective shield around the immediate area. Designed with a patented break-away strap that snaps if it becomes entangled, BugBand is ideal for the whole family. Or try BugBand’s nifty towelettes. Simply wipe the towelette over exposed skin for protection. Use them in tandem for best coverage!

$11.95-$14.95, www.BugBand.net


Spirit Halloween Costumes

Spirit offers tons of kids Halloween costumes that light up, are reflective, or feature light up accessories. For example, kids can have a blast dressing up as a Barbie Ballerina or an adorable Lavender Witch! Both costumes feature twinkling skirts, making them visible in the night. Spirit also has an awesome Superman costume with a matching Superman flashlight or Paw Patrol costumes with a flashlight hat! Plus, all costumes are flame resistant.

Thrive Market Organic, Non-GMO Candy

What’s the most important part of Halloween? The Candy! Most of the candy handed out on Halloween is chock-full of artificial and unhealthy ingredients — and we’re not just talking about the sugar! High-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, and other nasty ingredients is present in most candy. Opt for a healthier alternative that’s non-GMO, gluten-free and organic too! Thrive Market is an online healthy foods grocer offering wholesome foods at wholesale prices. It’s membership based, but for every membership purchased, another is given to a low income family in need allowing healthy foods to be accessible and affordable to all. Thrive Market offers several all natural, organic candies that are perfect for handing out on Halloween, including a bag of spooky Trick-or-Treat gummy packs!

$4.45-$6.95, www.thrivemarket.com



Keep track of your kids on Halloween with Tinitell! Tinitell is a kids wrist phone that pairs with an app so parents can both talk and see where they are via GPS.Parents control the contacts through an app, kids dial the number with the push of a button.

Visual interaction typically found in such devises is replaced by voice guidance, essential during outdoor activities. Instead of numbers on a screen, Tinitell has voice labels for each contact, recorded by parents and ids. Tinitell is available in coral, navy, aqua, and charcoal.
