I bought these Peltor Kids Ear Muffs/Ear Protectors before my baby was born because I knew we would need them for at least two events during the first year: the Tramlines festival (we went to see Lucy Spraggan in the afternoon playing a gig in a beer garden) and, more recently, Bonfire night which means loud fireworks!
Protecting my daughter’s ears is very important to me so I decided to buy her some ear protectors for events like these. I chose the Peltor Kids Ear Muffs/Ear Protectors because they are very adjustable (fit from birth and up to age 7 according to Peltor’s website but they fit my normal size adult head too, so I think we’ll get many years use out of them), they tune out harmful loud noises but do not shut out ambient sounds, are comfortable to wear, light and come in bright colours making them fun and easy to see.
They have definitely passed the test! My baby was happy and comfortable at a concert a few months ago and surrounded by loud fireworks this week. Her hearing is really good but she didn’t even flinch from the loud bangs when she was wearing these and she happily slept through the loudest of the fireworks wearing Peltor Kids Ear Muffs.
