As a mother I go through scenario after scenario of what ifs….What if someone came into my home? What if my child was choking? What if something happened to me would by child be able to help? Scenario after scenario plays through my mind, and I only hope I will be prepared should anything actually happen. Many times preparation and forethought are what make the difference. I recently learned of a simple yet amazing idea called TIKE Sticker, which stands for Toddler Information Kept for Emergencies.
If god forbid you were ever in an accident with your toddler and unable to speak with emergency personnel, a TIKE sticker can truly save lives.
What is TIKE?
This bright red sticker is designed to assist emergency personnel in identifying a child in the event that an accident incapacitates the adults riding in the vehicle. By placing the TIKE sticker on the bottom or back of a child safety/booster seat, emergency responders can secure emergency and medical contact information about the child at a glance, without having to waste precious time.

4 Accessories for a Safe and Enjoyable Ride
- See more with a back-up camera. This camera activates when the vehicle is in reverse, showing objects and children who may be in your blind spot.
- Ride comfortably with sun shades. These may help lower temperature, eyestrain and stress. Avoid locations that block the driver’s view and choose the most secure mounting possible.
- Alert others with a parking alarm. These activate as you approach people or objects out of your field of view.
- Entertain the kids with video or DVD theaters. Kits are available to fit these media players and screens overhead or in a console.
