10 year old Alanna Meyers, of Tarpon Springs, the inventor of the “Pain Free Bandage Remover” was recently awarded the grand prize on Nickelodeon’s Game Show, “Figure It Out”, after stumping the show’s celebrity judges about her invention.
A fifth grader at Safety Harbor Montessori Academy in Clearwater, Alanna’s Pain Free Bandage Remover was inspired by her long time dislike of the bandage removal process. At the grand old age of 8, she decided that enough was enough, and experimented with several different combinations of safe, organic ingredients until she hit upon the perfect formula. Her focus group was her then 2nd grade classroom, where kids and parents alike were immediately sold.
Since then, her product has been featured on “The Doctors”, “Rachael Ray” and several local news programs. Alanna has applied for a patent trademark hopes to go into full production soon, marketing to childrens hospitals, pharmacies, health food and natural food stores, assisted living and nursing homes, with plans to donate 1% of all sales to the Arts for children.
Way to go, Alanna!
