When we shared a story a few months ago about a little girl who was scared of hand dryers, we were inundated with comments from mums who had the same experience of having children who were, sometimes, SUPER scared of the noisy blowers you get in most public toilets.
So, when one of our mums spotted this Puff the Magic Dryer in a shopping centre in Norwich at the weekend – she had to take a picture and share it, as it was something she’d never seen in her hometown before.
(Though maybe you’ve seen them around?)
We did a quick search and found out all about ‘Puff’ – it’s described as ‘the first washroom hand-dryer specially designed with children in mind’ – and we have to say, the makers are right on the money with this one.
The touch-free hand dryer looks bright and friendly and is way less noisy (and scary) than the regular driers you get in public toilets.
Testimonials on the website make it pretty clear parents are loving it.
One said: “He usually doesn’t like to use dryers, but he was keen to go up and use it – he usually finds dryers quite scary. So it was lovely actually. For the first time ever we’ve used a hand-dryer.”
Another wrote: “I thought it was really good. It was attractive in colour, and the kids could use it on their own – they’d washed their hands and were using the dryer when I came out of the loo, so it was great in that way.”
High praise, indeed ✊✊
What do you think?
