THE LITTLE GROMMETS STORY
We live in Melbourne Australia. Two of my four children have grommets. Mason and Harper both had chronic glue ear when they were two and half and subsequently had grommets operations. I could not find anything anywhere to help me keep their ears dry.
I visited pharmacies and googled "swimming with grommets" with no luck at all. When I did find an earband it was clumsy and couldn't be adjusted. It was also fluoro.
My husband said, "Why don't you design something?". So with the encouragement of our ENT specialist - I did! And little grommets was born! My eldest son Royston helped create and inspire the dinosaurs and my younger son Mason is the boy you see on our packaging along side our dear friend Isabella. Our daughter Harper is the little girl your see modelling the pink band on our website.
Now we send our earbands, earplugs and mesh bags around the world and have amazing feedback from every corner of the globe. I cannot tell you how satisfying and fulfilling it is to be providing a product that is really helping people.
All I hope is that the frustration I had finding something to keep my children's ears dry has led to something very positive. And that that frustration of not knowing how to keep ears dry is now alleviated for others. Easy grommets after care is everything and I am sure with little grommets we have found a way to take the stress out of swimming and bathing with grommets.
Thank you so much for visiting little grommets. We hope you love our earbands as much as all our other happy customers - and above all we hope we've helped make your life a little easier.
