Thursday, May 23, 2013Summer is right around the corner and June is National Child Safety Awareness Month. Summer is full of fun, travel, going to the beach and more. Here are eight summer must-haves to keep kids safe this summer:
1. Parking Pal Magnet: Safer unpacking
This is a super safety product; unpacking the car at the beach can be challenging -- beach chairs, coolers, beach umbrella, towels, toys, kids, etc. The Parking Pal Magnet is a magnet to place on a safe part of the automobile and a child places their hand on the magnet to stay in place safely while the car is unloaded. Parking Pal makes trips to the beach and anywhere else this summer easier and safer.

"One super important safety necessity at the beach is to show your children where the lifeguard stand is and tell them to go to the lifeguards if they are lost. It’s easy to get disoriented at the beach and children do not always think to go to the lifeguards," shares Kathleen Pisano, inventor of Noblo.
