A few weeks ago I started doing a search on ear muffs for kids. Do you know how many I found for kids specifically? Uh.... not very many. At least that wasn't just for looking cutesy in the cold season. I needed something for my son that literally could give him the silence he needed even if all my kids (well, there are 6 total) are crying in our van. I envisioned Chaz just putting these on when he needed some quiet. Chaz is sensitive to noise and tends to panic when it gets to be too much. When he is put in the quiet, it calms him down. These are good for so many reasons I could go on and on. Well, maybe I should. Even if your child isn't experiencing Sensory Issues, there I plenty of other times it's great to protect their little ears. I'm 31 and I've already had some hearing loss.

From the President of the company:
"As a parent of a child with autism, I have also become aware that many people have hearing sensitivities that make everyday life a serious challenge. My son had difficulty sitting in a busy classroom with lots of sensory input, so he regularly wore earmuffs during school hours. They were bulky and not very cool for a 10-year-old kid who was already having a hard enough time fitting in with his peers -- but the earmuffs were a solution that worked. They allowed him to tolerate not only his classroom, but also his sister's soccer games, and even our town's Fourth of July parades."
