Parents of kids with allergies and asthma can take comfort in knowing their children can be a little safer this Halloween thanks to AllerMates® products: bright, easy-to-see wristbands, dog tags and stickers to help make the people around them – at school, around the neighborhood, at others’ homes – aware of their ailment.

A child reaching for that peanut candy while trick-or-treating just might be reminded or remind their caregiver of his or her peanut allergy with the P. Nutty wristband, one of 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 and cat, and also asthma.


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, stickers and lunch boxes that young children would happily embrace. AllerMates has recently added medical alert products to their lineup with the recent release of their “Puffer” asthma wristband.  A portion of the proceeds from the sale of “Puffer” will be donated to asthma research.

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 is the proud recipient of the Mom’s Choice Award for best in family-friendly media, products and services.

The AllerMates website ( offers both parents and children easy to read and understand tips, facts and general information about allergies as well as lots of fun games and activities based on the line of AllerMates characters. The website also has a fully functional social community allowing its members free and easy interaction and sharing of the latest blogs, news, videos and information within the allergy community.
