Shot Stings No More!

A genius way to help kids overcome their fear of shots. It’s BUZZY: Taking the Sting Out of Shots.

The name says it all, really. This cute, little bee has a removable compress that you keep in the fridge or freezer until ready to use. It then slides into place and acts as the wings to Buzzy the bee. Buzzy also buzzes! That is … it actually vibrates. So, when you put the two together — the cold compress and the vibration — the skin is numb and ready for the shot. This is a great little product to have if your child is afraid of shots. Prepare them with Buzzy by attaching it to the arm just above where the shot will go a few minutes before. As soon as the shot is done, slide Buzzy into place right over the area for added relief.

It also comes with Bee-Stractor distraction cards. These colorful, little cards are the perfect distraction and can be placed in the slot on the bee’s tummy so that the child will look at the picture and not where the shot is going. Have them find the hidden pictures on the cards while the procedure is being done.
