Once upon a time there were three bears. One day, a rascal named Goldilocks broke into their home, ate their gruel, and destroyed their personal property.
She also left nasty germs throughout the den.
Too bad the family didn’t have a Mamabears.com Kind Sign on the door. The friendly reminders hook onto strollers, car seats, cribs, diaper bags, and shopping carts, reminding strangers to keep their grimy hands to themselves.
Made of soft, nontoxic silicone, the signs come in pink, orange, and blue, and attach and detach easily.
Making them just right.
