AllerMates® Colorful Wristbands for Kids with Allergies Receives Mom’s Choice Approval and PTPA Approval

            AllerMates®, creators of colorful wristband, dog tags and lunch bags for kids with allergies just received approvals from Mom’s Choice Awards (MCA) and Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA), national organizations that choose the very best in children’s products, it was announced today by Andrew Eisenberg, President, Awearables LLC, parent company of AllerMates.

MCA Judges are especially interested in products and services that help families grow emotionally, physically and spiritually; are morally sound and promote good will; and are inspirational and uplifting. PTPA is the leading product awards program with the largest parent-testing community and seal of approval recognized worldwide.

 Iris Shamus, a mother of a child with multiple food allergies was frustrated by the lack of allergy-related kid-friendly products so she took action and created AllerMates, a new line of bright, fun, whimsical character-driven wristbands, dog tags and lunch boxes that her son would happily embrace.

Parents of children with allergies can now enjoy the safety and security of knowing their young ones are better protected against unwanted allergens when they wear or use AllerMates products away from home in places like school, daycare, parties, sleep-overs and play dates. 

AllerMates products are based on 15 fun, original characters that represent the most common allergies: peanut, nut, gluten/wheat, milk, egg, shellfish, penicillin, insect sting, latex, pollen, fish, soy, sesame, cat and the newest - asthma. Shamus created AllerMates, in part to help kids feel positive about their allergies. 

AllerMates products are hypo-allergenic, nickel and latex free and have passed rigorous safety standards and testing.  The wristbands are adjustable and fit most children.  

AllerMates products can be purchased at,, independent retailers and in the seasonal aisle available now at many Walgreens around the country until Nov. 1.
