|Very cool and incredibly detailed, American Girl Diabetes Care Kit~|
Like everyone else in the DOC, I was thrilled when I heard the news that American Girl had created and was launching the American Girl Diabetes Care Kit for their line of “Truly Me” Dolls.
I reached out to AG and they were kind enough to send me my very own American Girl Diabetes Care Kit.
|My very own American Girl Diabetes Care Kit~|
The logbook has a stitched back binder, the insulin pump has a clip and arrow keys, and from the BG number on the pump’s screen, I've come to the conclusion that it also has CGM capabilities.
The tube of glucose tabs look just like the tubes of glucose tabs I keep in my car and my gym bag.
The medical ID bracelet is pretty and perfect for a young doll with Type 1 diabetes. Sidebar: I believe that an American Girl Doll who wears a medical ID bracelet will encourage the little girl who loves her, to wear their own medical ID bracelet/ necklace.
And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE that American Girl included an insulin pen in their Diabetes Care Kit because just like real life, your diabetes may vary and not every little girl wears an insulin pump.
The kit’s meter has a test strip already inserted, the number on the screen matches the number on the insulin pump, and a lancing device.
All the diabetes accessories fit nicely into the kit’s carrying case, which has a working zipper and ID Card all ready for you and your doll to fill out. FYI: when I spilled water, I discovered the kit’s bag was water resistant.
And now for more awesomeness: The folks at American Girl have generously agreed to Diabetesaliciousness American Girl Diabetes Care Kit, giveaway.
