For many kids, the worst part about a cut is seeing the blood.And for many parents, the worst part is hearing their child cry about said blood.

BloodSTOP can also be used for nosebleeds.Ten in a package, $14.99 at www.amazon.com. Get more info at www.lifesciencePLUS.com.
Let There Be Light
A nightlight in your child’s room may scare away monsters, but then there’s the hall, the bathroom, and maybe the rest of the house.The new PalPODzzz™ Portable Night-Light is both a nightlight and a rechargeable flashlight, so it can help a kid who is potty trained find his way to the toilet. And since it works on both electric and battery power, it serves as a backup light in a power failure. In ladybug or rocket ship designs, $19.99 at Home Depot or www.sylvania.com.

These works of art start at $59 for an 8 by 10-inch print, and can get much bigger (and more expensive). Great for last-minute gifts; they ship within four business days
