The Floating Putty Buddies Ear Bandit ® really do float! These colourful, soft silicone plugs are larger than most other child-sized silicone plugs to completely fill the outer ear, providing a watertight seal over the ear canal.

With an estimated 20-22 db noise reduction, the soft silicone lets your child hear through the plug well enough that you can get your child's attention if you need to.

The system using an Ear Band It with Putty Buddies Ear Plugs was originally designed by an ear, nose and throat specialist to prevents ear infection for his young patients with ear tubes to help keep the Putty Buddies plugs secure, even during vigorous activity.

Features
  • Recommended by physicians for prevention of swimmer's ear or for children with ear tubes.
  • Softer silicone for a more comfortable fit.
  • Tacky texture to allow plugs to remain in position better.
  • Bright colours - appealing to kids, and easy to find in the pool or bath.
  • Complete with storage case.
  • Suitable for all ages from new born to adult. (Younger users should be supervised).

 

Additional Information

  • Only handle the silicone with clean dry hands. Avoid touching the silicone with oily/dirty hands or bringing them into contact with lotions, oils, hair and other oil-based substances.
  • Make sure the user's ear is clean, dry and free from wax/oils prior to placing the ear plugs over the ear canal.
  • Make sure the plug does not have any cracks or folds prior to placement over the ear canal. If it does, roll the plug between your fingers until the surface is smooth and uniform.
  • Flatten the plug into a disk, place over the ear canal and pressed gently on the plug in a direction outward from the ear canal to "lock" the silicone into the outer cartilage of the ear.
  • To remove the ear plug, grab the ear lobe w/ thumb on the back of the earlobe and fingers on the front of the ear lobe. Push/pull up and down several times. This should ensure that the silicone dislodges easily in one uniform piece from the ear without leaving residue behind.
  • Once removed, store the ear plugs in the plastic container (covered)until further use.
  • The Putty Buddies ear plugs should be discarded once they become dirty in appearance or if they appear to be cracked or coming apart. This should be 1-2 weeks with daily use if handled with clean dry hands.

Customer Reviews for Ear Bandit Buddies Ear Plugs

  • 5 out of 5 Eat plugs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (1 Sep 2016)

    I used to order these from the USA and when I came across them on this site for that price .... I couldn't believe it! AMAZING!!! I have to use ear plugs everyday, my ENT recommend me to use this kind as they are soft and are truly great quality! I used to by the clear ones but found the Flotec ones better and last much longer!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Jul 2016)

    I buy these ear plugs for my grandson to wear along with his Ear Band-It head band to prevent water ingress into his ears as he has perforated ear drums at present. They are an excellent product and work very well, so that he is able to swim despite his ear problem. Full marks to Newitts their service is brilliant

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (26 May 2016)

    My little boy suffers from ear infections and so we use this all the time in the bath, shower and swimming pool. It works perfectly, keeps the water out and stops the ear infections from occurring.

  • 4 out of 5 Do the job!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (10 May 2016)

    The ear plugs stay in my daughters ears and come out easily enough after use. Just get a bit stuck in her hair!

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 May 2016)

    I have purchased loads of these ear buddies for my 7year old Daughter, after she experienced yet another troublesome ear infection, due to having grommets. They really helped a very very keen swimmer, to continue the sport she enjoys. My daughter found them very easy to use, and could still hear instructions, well done ear buddies, they even stayed in place whilst diving. I would recommended these to anyone. Thank-you.

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant

    Newitts Verified Purchase (14 Apr 2016)

    The ear plugs I bought for my son work wonders. Not only do we use them for swimming to protect his ears we also use them to block out noise. My son is autistic and can't deal with busy loud noises, these work a treat.

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent

    Newitts Verified Purchase (29 Feb 2016)

    Great product that stays in the ear. My son has a grommit and so used these ear plugs while at the swimming pool, it stayed in for the whole 1 and a half hours. He also uses it for bath time which is also great. Thanks

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Band-it

    Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Feb 2016)

    These ear plugs are easy to use. They keep the water out of my ears and are very comfortable to wear.

  • 5 out of 5 Do the job

    Newitts Verified Purchase (10 Dec 2015)

    My six year old daughter had had numerous ear infections and these are great for protecting her ears when swimming. We use with the ear-bandit.

  • 5 out of 5 GREAT VALUE AND SERVICE

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Dec 2015)

    ORDERED EAR PLUGS FOR MY DAUGHTER TO USE FOR SWIMMING VERY QUICK SERVICE AND GREAT PRICES WOULD USE AGAIN

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (16 Sep 2015)

    I started using these and I cannot recommend these enough. They seal your ear keeping it dry. Mine stayed in my ear and are still pliable today. I have ordered two more pairs as I wanted variety to go with my swimsuit!!!

  • 5 out of 5 Ear putty

    Newitts Verified Purchase (11 Sep 2015)

    I have ridiculously small outer ear canals, which means that most ear plugs become extremely uncomfortable, very quickly. But I'm also a very light sleeper, so this ear putty is absolutely brilliant for blocking out louder sounds that stop me sleeping - I don't know what I'd do without it!

  • 3 out of 5 Good but sticky

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Oct 2014)

    Does the job but tricky to get all of it out. Arrived quickly after ordering and good service from newitt

  • 3 out of 5 Not exactly what I was looking for

    Newitts Verified Purchase (22 Sep 2014)

    My 9-year old had a grommet fitted in so I bought a pair of these. It's like play-dough so it does stick to hair, can also break off in bits and get dirty (not possible to clean it). The good thing is that it's moldable, but still it sometimes slips out when it gets wet.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Buddies.

    Newitts Verified Purchase (13 Sep 2014)

    I purchased these ear buddies for my 9year old son, after he experienced yet another troublesome double ear infection. They really helped a very keen swimmer, to continue the sport he enjoys so much. My little boy found them very easy to use, and could still hear instructions.well done ear buddies, they even stayed in place whilst diving. Thank-you.

  • 4 out of 5 A must for kids who like to swim

    Newitts Verified Purchase (5 Sep 2014)

    Having gone through pain (literally) of ear infections whilst abroad on holiday we decided to give these earplugs and the ear band-it bands a go and haven't looked back. A must for any kids who love to swim, dive and jump in. Highly recommended and great service from Newitts. :)

  • 4 out of 5 Great product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Sep 2014)

    Bought these for my 21 month old daughter. She has had gromits fitted recently. Great product, easy to put in and stay in place. Only downside is they get caught in her hair when removing. Overall a great buy

  • 5 out of 5 good product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Aug 2014)

    does what it says on the tin! delivered quickly and stopped the usual ear infection on our holiday - good

  • 5 out of 5 Fantastic

    Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Jul 2014)

    Our daughter missed so many swimming lessons due to ear infections that these were our last hope and they are great. She has not missed any lessons since using them, would definitely recommend them.

  • 5 out of 5 buddies ear plugs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (25 Jun 2014)

    Using buddies ear plugs has been a great health benefit for me. I used to suffer from repeated ear infections, but the buddies ear plugs keep my inner ears dry and infection free when I wash my hair.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear plugs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Jun 2014)

    Very good and stopped the kids and myself suffering with ear infections that normally occur when we are swimming everyday on holiday

  • 4 out of 5 Mrs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (5 Jun 2014)

    I was very unsure when I purchased the first two pairs. At first, I felt it awkward to get it in place as it often stuck to my finger. The plus side, they don't hurt the ears and my 4yr old grandson can put his own one "in".

  • 4 out of 5 ear buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Jun 2014)

    I bought these ear plugs for my twins swimming lessons, as they kept getting ear infections ! They love the bright colours and happily put them in for each lesson and the best bit so far no more ear infections! newitts were brilliant and sent them very quickly, and so we were able to use them ASAP.

    I did not hold out high expectations if I'm honest and I was pleasantly surprise!! What a bargain for a piece of magic!! My 3yr old suffered from ear infections abroad on holiday however not after we used these! Brilliant n I'm not easily pleased! Thank you

    Newitts Verified Purchase (7 Sep 2013)

    I purchased these plugs along with the Ear Bandit and am extremely pleased with the product.
    Very prompt delivery. Great product, my little girl has recurrent ear infections made worse if water enters the ears. These were great at stopping this

    very pleased with product grandaughter is very pleased as she is only and they easey for her to use thanks very much

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant

    Newitts Verified Purchase (2 Sep 2013)

    My son wouldn't go swimming before he got these, now he has no problems! They stay in really well, though we use the band just as extra security. Would certainly recommend! Easy to fit and to remove. Fantastic!

  • 5 out of 5 fantastic earplugs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (30 Aug 2013)

    Excellent product. Fit is perfect as you mould them to completely in the ear unlike other silicone earplugs. The only problem we had is that sometimes it got bits stuck in my daughter's hair but it really isn't a problem as they do exactly what they are meant to.

  • 5 out of 5 Great

    Newitts Verified Purchase (22 Aug 2013)

    My daughter (3) loves swimming, but she is quit prone to ear infections. After searching shops for some ear plugs for her and not finding any I came across these online and they are great. They fit into her ears really well, but as they are putty-like would also fit in a bigger ear. Because they are brightly coloured she likes them & they would be easy to find if they fell out in the pool, but they have never fallen out anyway. We have two pairs now after I lost our first pair. Would definitley recommend.

  • 5 out of 5 ear buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (22 Aug 2013)

    my son just had gromets in his ears and needed to keep the water out didnt want him to stop swimming lessons so got told about these,.. very very good and the kids love the colours..!!!!!

  • 5 out of 5 Buddies ear plugs

    Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Aug 2013)

    I think this product is great. They are easy to use and comfortable to wear. Even come in their own little box.

  • 4 out of 5 Great for the price.

    Newitts Verified Purchase (18 Aug 2013)

    Comfortable. Work very well considering the price. Used them 4+ times without any issues. The only thing is that hair gets stuck to them, but it's not a big deal.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (11 Aug 2013)

    A fantastic product really easy to use, my son is 7 and wore these without any complaint. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone.

  • 5 out of 5 Highly recommend

    Newitts Verified Purchase (9 Aug 2013)

    Second time I've bought these, great for kids with Grommets. My son loves the illuminous green ones. Handy for swimming or just a shower.

  • 5 out of 5 Ear Bandit Ear Plugs

    Have been using these along with the headband for the past 4 years. These are very very good and we find that other ear plugs are not as effective. Daughter loves the colours and the little pot they come in is handy to pop in your pocket. She has been able to swim twice a week without any problems and without these that would not have been possible.

  • 5 out of 5 Brilliant!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Jul 2013)

    I got these for my daughter who had recently had grommets put in, they are perfect and easy to use! My daughter loves the bright colours too! This is also the cheapest place I have found for them!

  • 5 out of 5 Ear band it

    Newitts Verified Purchase (17 Jul 2013)

    I would fully recommend them as my four year old little boy was fine using them for in the pool on holiday and he loved the little case they came in.

  • 5 out of 5 ear bandit

    Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Jul 2013)

    Does what it says on the tin good product * 5 stars and good value at that, would recommend to all

  • 5 out of 5 An excellent water resistant ear plug

    Newitts Verified Purchase (8 Jun 2013)

    An excellent product used by my daughter for synchronised swimming. They are the only ear plugs that we have any confidence in and were recommended by her ENT consultant. Without them she would be unable to participate in this challenging sport.

  • 5 out of 5 very good product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 May 2013)

    Bought these for my 4 year old daughter who always has ear trouble after swimming. Free postage and only £1.50. Come in a small case in one piece like a small ball of play dough. Mould into ears and work perfectly my daughter has had no ear trouble at all since using these. All in all you can't really go wrong at the price

  • 5 out of 5 Fantastic ear buddies

    Newitts Verified Purchase (24 May 2013)

    My 4 year old daughter had gromits and having done swim lessons since she was 2 we didn't want her to have to give up. I was going to pay for ear moulds at £65 but thought I'd try these 1st. My daughter put them in herself and removes them herself and is so happy wearing them. She didn't wear the bandit as it interfered with her goggles but the plugs don't let anything in so they are ok on their own. She jumps in, dives under and is fine. The only thing is to make sure hair is tied and clipped back as otherwise small strands of hair stick to the plugs and this can make removing the plugs a little painful as you pull hair. Now she has her hair clipped back she never ever complains and always does them herself. The plugs are good for about 1-2 months but I then change them as I figure they may be getting dirty. Still cheaper than paying for moulds even if you change them after every use!
