Hand Coverage is crucial. Preventing infection and limiting skin irritation for children is dependent on a safe solution for hand coverage. An effective, and cute, solution has not been available to parents before Handsocks. 

 Everyday, children are impacted by things like:

newborn scratching

bug bites 

hand coverage for skin conditions/medical procedures

cold hands at night

eczema

Every other option available (using socks......) doesn't offer the effectiveness (or cuteness) that Handsocks does.

All of our designs are named after real children that have benefited from Handsocks, being able to honor someone with our campaign makes this very personal. 

 

 

Handsocks are designed with comfort and function in mind. 

-finger access

-plush material

-proper fitting

They will be manufactured right here in the USA, so you can expect the highest quality and workmanship in Handsocks.

We have perfected our design by using feedback from parents and doctors to include features such as.....

  • A sleeve that is stretchy enough to slide up, but snug enough to hold on.
  • Mitten flips open so you can access those sweet little fingers, and provide time for exploring, eating etc without having to remove the whole mitten. 
  • Unexpected peek-a-boo patterns make everyone excited when the mittens open up. 

Plus, Parents and Professionals LOVE them!

We have already distributed samples to doctors and parents across the country and the responses have been terrific. Check out our testimony below.....

We're also offering custom logo mittens!! 

Handsocks can be a functional keepsake for corporate gifts, fundraiser baskets, company promotions, or private labeled products to sell through baby boutiques and retailers.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges:

The real risk is when parents who need Handsocks don't know about them and kids miss a chance at protection and warmth that could really help.

We need to meet the minimum goal to afford to buy the minimum quantity required by the factory. If we raise our minimum funding goal, we do not expect any significant risks in completing the project.

For Kickstarter projects, there is always a risk of delay in delivering rewards, but we've been careful to allow extra time than we think we'll need – so we hope we'll have the new Handsocks sooner than listed. Sometimes shipments can be delayed but we have worked this time in to consideration as well.
