This Bug-Shaped Sticker Is An Ingenious Way To Measure Your Child’s Temperature Without Any Hassle

Every parent can agree that raising kids is not an easy task and the difficulty only grows when children find themselves with one ailment or another. You could easily explain that the liquid with an awful taste is a medicine that’s going to make them feel better, or that this weird device is meant to measure their temperature to find out just how serious their condition is. But kids? Kids would have none of it and try to squirm (oftentimes literally) away from the situation only to complain that they feel bad in the same breath.

Well, if you’re a parent that has trouble taking your child’s temperature, this nifty little device might be just the right thing. Physio Logic is coming to the rescue with their “Feverbugz”, a stick-on fever indicator that not only takes away the hassle of disturbing your sleeping child, but also keeps it fun for your kid. The stickers come in various shapes, such as a bee or a caterpillar, and can continuously measure the child’s temperature for up to 48 hours.

One “Feverbugz” pack contains 8 stickers and costs $6.50. With 239 reviews, the average rating of the product is 4 stars out of 5. Most of the reviews of the product praised it for being easy to use as well as very efficient. One woman shared her experience with the world after finding her child in trouble during a vacation. With a regular thermometer being unavailable at that time, the woman gave “Feverbugz” stickers a go, and it worked well!

The few negative reviews mostly blamed the stickers for being faulty and other people showed concerns with the thermometer not being as accurate as other means of measuring a child’s temperature. But hey, sometimes when you have a sick child who’s crying non-stop, you might need just this helping hand to make things at least a little more fun.

These temperature strips have been around since at least the 80s. My parents had one when I was a kid, it was just not fancy like these ones.

I could never sleep with a sticker on my forehead, not even as a child. And 6,50? Here a normal (digital) thermometer is 2 euros and the cheapest forehead/ear one is 12,99. Why would you spend that much money on 6 non-reusable stickers? Not even mentioning the waste you are generating with all that throwaway stuff. Consumerism at its finest :(
