Product Review: American Medical ID

As a food allergy blogger, one of my missions is raising awareness of food allergies.  And what better way to raise awareness than to wear my cause!

My kids love wearing bracelets and necklaces.  So why not make it so their jewelry helps keep them safe!  American Medical ID is a company that strives to provide quality medical identification jewelry for kids and adults.  They offer a wide variety of products from silicone bracelets to gold necklaces and everything in between with personalized engraving.  There are styles that are suitable for men and women, boys and girls.

Check out these awesome products we got from American Medical ID:

Bubs loves playing soccer, so he picked out this soccer pendant on a stainless steel bead chain.  We were able to choose the length of the chain to make it a custom fit for him.

Perfect necklace for my soccer stud!

GirlyGirl likes matching her jewelry to her outfit, so she chose the stainless steel sleek heart bracelet with extra bands in a variety of colors.  The engraved portion is interchangeable with any standard "cause" bracelet making her possibilities endless.

While at the Food Allergy Bloggers Conference last fall (here's my recap), I met another food allergy mom (Tiffany Glass Ferreira) who gave me the wonderful idea of wearing a medical ID bracelet of my own.  I even stole her engraving idea.  What a great way to start conversations and raise awareness!  I also got a variety of bands, including a set of three holiday bands (I am a bit of a Christmas nerd) so I too could match my bracelet to my outfit (like mother like daughter).

We also received samples of some of the new products from American Medical ID.

The Beware Bandits bracelets are perfect for children, especially young kids.  They have easy adjustable plastic snaps and cute animated characters representing each allergen.  There is also a place to write in emergency info on the inside of the bracelet.  The downside of these is that they are for a single allergy only.  But if your kids are like mine, they like to line their arm with bracelets.  So the more the merrier!

We also received the new Tyvek Zipp ID bags.  The kids love putting their extra bands or Beware Bandits bracelets in these, but they could also be very functional for other small objects you want to keep together in your purse or diaper bag.  When you order a pack of these, you get four colors.  And it's only $3.95 per pack!

I have been quite happy with American Medical ID products, and the service has been amazing!  When we received our order, there was a minor typo in Bubs' name.  They immediately sent us a replacement with no questions asked.  The company has been fabulous to work with. 

If you are looking for any type of medical ID jewelry, check out American Medical ID.  There are so many wonderful options to choose from. It is hard to pick just one.  You may end up with a box full of ID jewelry like us if you're not careful!

  1. Ordered my ID Necklace Dog Tag, with all my medication on it, plus health problems - urgent on it.
    I received the item in a week, looks really good and gives me peace of mind, that should I be involved in a bad accident and unable to communicate with the Medics, hopefully they will check out the Dog tag and administer the right treatment. Hospital staff will certainly find the Medical Tag and know exactly which Tablets I require each day, including dosage required in each tablet.

    For those wanting re-assurance in case of an emergency, this is the ideal item to wear, either Dog Tag, bracelet or even Personal ID Health.
    The cost is minimal for peace of mind and looks good too.
