Dot Girl First Period Kit Review

I received this too late to be able to include it in my Cool for School reviews, but this is a product that would definitely come in handy for young girls in school. My daughter is still too young for this since she is only turning 6, but those of you with girls approaching puberty might want to consider offering her the Dot Girl First Period Kit.

I got my first period when I was 11 – in an airplane on a school trip to Quebec. By that time, the majority of what I knew on puberty I had learnt at school. It isn’t that my Mom didn’t talk to me at all about it, but it was very brief. I wasn’t prepared with my own pads, and I certainly wasn’t prepared for the horrible cramps that I got for that first year.

The Dot Girl First Period Kit offers everything a girl needs for her first period including information and supplies, fashionably packaged in a discreet carrying case. The Kit is a perfect addition to a tween girl’s backpack, gym bag or school locker and a must have for every girl on the first day of school. Help parents help their daughters be prepared.

Inside the cute circular pouch you will find a Period Answer Book which addresses 20 questions that young girls often ask, 5 sanitary pads, 5 disposal bags, 2 antibacterial wipes, and a gel heating pack that fits perfectly in your hand. The heating pack warms up in seconds and can be re-used, it can also be used as a cooling pad by leaving it in the freezer. It doesn’t get hot enough to burn, and stayed warm for around 30 minutes.

I would have loved to have a kit like this one handy when I got my first period, and the heating pad would have been fabulous to have for those first year cramps. My niece’s 10th birthday is coming up in November and I plan on giving this to her. She lives with her Dad, and she does visit her Mom on the weekends but as a single Father I’m sure this is something he might be able to appreciate too.
