The dreaded needle-based appointments can be a thing of the past! Needle Buddies® is a syringe clip on that disguises the scary needle and syringe.
Created by a Canadian mother-daughter/healthcare worker team with experience with needle anxiety both professional and personally, children customize their Needle Buddy by decorating the needle cover with their favourite sticker or one of the “hero” stickers included with the product. The needle cover moves up during the injection and is removed after the injection to go home with the child as a heroic badge.
