Happy Birthday, Walt Disney!
Walt Disney is a household name, and over the years, the spirit of his imagination has become representative of the wonder of childhood. Since Mickey Mouse was first drawn on paper in 1928, Disney characters have captivated generations and become icons, role models, and superstars. Mickey Mouse even has his own star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame! Walt Disney built an empire that will likely last forever, and he wanted us to remember its humble beginnings: “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing — that it was all started by a mouse.”
In celebration of Walt Disney’s birthday on December 5th, and the small mouse who became a big star, SmileMakers wants to add a little magic to your practice with our Mickey Mouse themed prizes for pediatric patients.
Mickey Mouse Bubbles
Bubbles have a way of lifting your mood and making everything a bit lighter. Kids typically gravitate towards bubbles due to their mesmerizing colors and movements, making these themed prizes a great experience for children, and a useful tool for you. If a pediatric patient is distracted or fearful, blowing bubbles can soothe anxiety and refocus energy. The fun label on the front of the bottle can also be a great conversation starter with a small patient who loves Disney characters. “Did you know Mickey was the first Disney character? Who is your favorite character?”
Mickey Mouse Slap Bracelets
Pediatric patients love prizes that will last. With Mickey Mouse Slap Bracelets, kids can wear their prize and show it off to their friends and family long after they leave your office. Prizes give you something that you and your staff can use to connect with younger patients. Put one on, or have your team wear them around the office, and draw your patients’ attention to the cool accessories. Children will be thrilled when you offer them one of their own, or when you promise one at the end of their visit. During their appointment, chat about Mickey, Minnie, and the gang, or ask if they’ve ever heard of Walt Disney.
Mickey Mouse Magic Slates
Perhaps one of the most fitting prizes you can offer patients to celebrate Walt Disney’s birthday is a drawing pad. With these magical slates, kids can doodle over and over, just like Walt! Ask your pediatric patients if they like to draw or ask them to draw you a picture. Use the slate as an icebreaker to get to know your patient and tell them a little about the magical imagination of Walt Disney.
Everyone Loves a Party!
With SmileMakers Mickey Mouse themed prizes and giveaways, you can turn routine pediatric appointments into a Disney celebration! Stickers, toothbrushes, and puzzles featuring everyone’s favorite mouse will give your patients a reason to smile and keep them entertained.
