Pluggies Kids earplugs are specially designed to protect children’s ears against harmful noise, loud music and water.
These quality, soft and comfortable earplugs can be used for many applications and are suitable for children aged three to twelve years old.
Whether your child is listening to loud music at a concert, playing in the pool, watching fireworks or racecars, or concentrating at school, Alpine Pluggies fit the bill to protect your little ones hearing.
Sadly, one in eight children now suffer from irreparable noise induced hearing loss. Children’s ears are extremely sensitive to noise. Most noise induced hearing loss is permanent and best of all PREVENTABLE!
That’s why Alpine have developed Pluggies Kids Earplugs especially designed for children aged between three and twelve years. These great little hearing protectors muffle excessive loud ambient noise whilst still allowing your child to hear what’s going on around them. What’s more is they are waterproof so can double as a great earplug to prevent water from getting into their ears when swimming, the perfect all in one solution for kids ears!
Twenty years of experience have allowed Alpine to develop a revolutionary new earplug model with a noise filter, that filters out damaging sounds. The extremely well thought-out and extensively tested shape of the earplugs provides a natural flat absorption and a perfect fit.
Alpine Pluggies Kids earplugs are recommended for children between the age of 3 and 12, as they often have a smaller ear canal than adults. You can use Alpine Pluggies Kids in a wide range of situations and applications:
For example, to protect against excessively loud music at a festival, in the cinema, and in all other situations where kids or toddlers are troubled by excessive noise.
Children often experience earache and ear infection. Pluggies Kids earplugs prevent water getting into the ears during swimming, showering, water sports and bathing.
A great many children experience difficulties concentrating at school, while doing homework, or while reading. Children with ADHD, ADD, or a form of autism, can also benefit from earplugs. Research has shown that wearing Pluggies Kids improves concentration.
Many kids have earaches during the take-off and landing of an airplane. Pluggies Kids earplugs improve pressure regulation in the ears, thus preventing earache. In addition, you can sleep peacefully when you wear earplugs while flying.
Each ear is different. Some adults have smaller ear canals, because of which earplugs such as Alpine PartyPlug, Alpine WorkSafe, etc. do not fit properly. In that case, you can also use Alpine Pluggies Kids as an adults for listening to music, flying, working and swimming. Sleeping with Alpine Pluggies Kids, however, could be less comfortable for people who sleep on their sides. This is because the Alpine SleepSoft has a soft flexible filter, in contrast to the Alpine Pluggies Kids which contains a hard filter.
Pluggies Kids earplugs are equipped with special AlpineAcousticFilters. These filters provide optimal noise attenuation, but still allow your child to hear ambient sounds sufficiently. Thus, there is no sense of isolation and your child can still follow conversations.
By wearing Pluggies Kids earplugs during flights, unpleasant pressure on the eardrums during take off and landing is regulated. The filters operate like valves and ensure gradual and constant pressure equilibrium between the external environment and the middle ear. Thus, the Eustachian tube has sufficient time to acclimatise to pressure variations.
Alpine Pluggies Kids are made of AlpineThermoShape material especially developed by Alpine. This material adapts to the shape of the ear so that the hearing protectors fit the auditory duct perfectly. This guarantees an exceptionally comfortable fit and children enjoy wearing these hearing protectors. In the bath, at school, or during drumming lessons. ATS contains no silicone, thus causing no allergic reactions.
Every Pluggies Kids pack contains six cheerful stickers. You can use these to decorate the storage container yourself and write your name on it.
The lifespan of the earplugs depends on frequency of use. Keeping the earplugs clean will extend the lifespan. The earplugs can be cleaned with lukewarm water and soap.
The design of the Alpine hearing protectors is an exclusive Dutch Design. All earplugs and filter systems are produced in the Netherlands.
