Do you need some fun gift ideas for stocking stuffers or Christmas gifts? Well, I’ve got a perfect, color-full stocking stuffer or Christmas gift for children! It’s called SoaPen.
What Is SoaPen?
It’s actually a very creative name for a really cool product that many kids will enjoy! And, it’s functional. Ok, that still doesn’t answer the question. I’ll explain. SoaPen is a hand soap in the form of a pen with a roller ball and it’s for kids (and it could work for adults, too). According to the product’s website, the SoaPen “makes handwashing fun, simple and colorful.” What parent doesn’t love a product that encourages handwashing (especially during cold and flu season)?
Kids use the SoaPen to color on their hands, then they lather with a bit of added warm water, and rinse as directed.
And, that’s not all. According to the website, it’s also hypoallergenic and free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, and EDTA. It won’t stain clothes or mark walls. If it gets on the clothes, you can machine wash to remove the coloring. It’s portable, too! You could pack it for trips or pack it in the purse for when bathrooms run out of soap. (I don’t know about you, but it totally grosses me out when we’re in a public restroom and there is no soap left.)
According to the company, SoaPen is for children between the ages 4 and 8 years of age (although, I know older kids who would love to use this, too). SoaPen is available on Amazon. The pens come in the following colors: pink, blue, and purple. You can purchase them in various package combinations (combos vary in price from $14.99 (3-pack) to $18.99 (4-pack). Prices subject to change.
SoaPen Benefits The Community In More Ways Than One
So, SoaPen can help the community by encouraging handwashing, which helps prevent the spread of certain illnesses. But, the product and its company also benefit the community in another way. How? According to the product’s website, “For every 3 SoaPens sold in the US, we donate one to a school in a low income community. Why? Because over 1.5 million children under the age of 5 die due to infectious illnesses that can be prevented by the simple act of washing hands with soap. We aim to make accessibility to soap and awareness of the benefits of washing hands with soap universal, no matter what your economic status.” Thank you, SoaPen!
