I found this short highlight in the December issue of Parents Magazine, and I thought I'd share:
Cooler Hearing Aids
A little decoration may help a child feel better about wearing a hearing aid. Tube Riders--rubber accessories that attach to the tube portion of most hearing aids and over the ear hook of cochlear implants--are the brainchild of Nashville mom Stacie Pierce. She came up with the idea when her son needed glasses. She found that he was more willing to wear them after she attached little rubber figures to the stems. Her husband wears a hearing aid, and she realized the decorations fit them perfectly too. Tube Riders come in a variety of styles, including soccer balls, flowers, and rocket ships. $7 for a pair; http://www.otocool.com/ .
And...I just have to post this cute one cuz I'm a sucker for flowers--SO CUTE!
