What they say: Calling all Star Wars and Frozen fans – Elastoplast, the UK’s leading plaster range has just announced two exciting new launches.
Featuring much-loved characters such as Chewbacca, Darth Vader, Queen Elsa and Olaf the Snowman; the plasters provide both physical and psychological care to children after suffering a scratch or cut. As well as effectively protecting wounds from dirt and bacteria, these skin-friendly plasters help take children’s minds off of the pain and inspire the healing power of delight.
Elastoplast’s expert family therapist and regular TV psychologist, Corinne Sweet, comments: “putting on a plaster and a bandage can have a ‘placebo effect’, helping the child feel tended to and cared for, aiding rapid recovery. The fact that the new Elastoplast plasters feature children’s favourite Star Wars and Frozen characters further helps this, allowing children to recall the pleasant experience of watching well-loved films and to imagine the characters caring for them.”
What we say: “My son is a huge Star Wars fan and when we were sent these new Elastoplast plasters I knew he would love them, although he absolutely hates having a plaster put on…
…Well! What a difference a character or two makes! He is now proudly wearing a Chewbacca plaster on his leg and a Lightsaber on his arm – neither of which have cuts or grazes!
These themed plasters have a full size image covering each plaster (two different child sized plasters in each packet of 16) that are bright, colourful and true to the character and theme.
I have to say that I agree with therapist Corinne Sweet, using a favourite character plaster certainly appears to help – and any help with an upset and hurt child is worth taking.”
Elastoplast Star Wars and Frozen plasters are currently available at retailers across the UK, RRP £2.60
