All kids love bandages that look like bacon, pirate skulls, pickles or—a perennial favorite—boo-boo kisses. We’ve never seen, throughout this great city, a collection of Accoutrements-brand bandages as wide as the array at Enjoy, An Urban General Store. There, toward the back of the store, a supply is continually stocked and refreshed.
And they’re great. There’s a variety of adult-ish themes too, including the oft-lewd Shakespeare Insults bandages and the classy tighty-whities underpants bandages you’ve been searching for your whole life. Buy these and stock up for that next wave of birthday parties: they make great budget-minded gifts. The bandages, packaged in attractive tins, usually run in the range of $7. On average, a tin contains fifteen bandages, so they may not be a great value for the volume. Still, the bandages are a clever way to heal your child’s ills with an odd dash of whimsy.
