The Dot Girl First Period Kit® ~ Review and Giveaway~Closed

Sponsored by Tomoson.com
We all know that information is power. I had an opportunity to review a product that I wish had been around when I was a teen. This little kit is a great way to prepare your daughter for her first period.  The product was developed by two sisters to help insure that your daughter's first period is a positive experience, or at least one that she will be prepared for.  The Dot Girl First Period Kit® is a stylish zippered pouch that includes:
  • The Dot Girl Period Answer Book® which answers 20 most asked questions in a way your tween or teen will not be horrified.  I liked the booklet's honest approach and that it did not have pictures.
  • 5 individually wrapped pads.
  • A reusable heating pad for menstrual cramps.
  • Two hand wipes just in case so your daughter will be prepared wherever her first period strikes.
  • Five disposal bags to cleanly and discreetly dispose of used pads.
I cannot stress how much that I liked the booklet.  It was simple yet informative.  It provided much needed information in a way you can easily discuss them with your daughter.  You could read this then give this book to your daughter/granddaughter to read then expand on with you.  There were not shocking pictures or big words.  I was a little surprised by the size of the pouch.  It may be a little big for a tween or teen's purse but would be perfect for a backpack, bathroom drawer, locker or all of the above.  It is very nicely made.  I would love to see The Dot Girl's come out with a streamlined case for carrying hygiene products once girls have started their period.  Good News!  Dot Girl products has offered one The Dot Girl First Period Kit® for giveaway.  This would be perfect for those StuffSmart readers with daughter's or granddaughters.  Don't have a daughter or granddaughter?  This would be a perfect gift to pay it forward and donate to your local school clinic or runaway shelter.
