EXPIRED

Can anyone recommend some little girls earrings that WON'T fall out?

As above.

I am SOOO fed up of having to always replace my daughter's earrings when she loses 1, she has loads of odd earrings now LOL!

She is 6 years old. I bought her some pink heart stone earrings from H Samuel for £14.99 a couple of weeks ago, the stone fell out after after LITERALLY 5 minutes! So I returned those and exchanged them for a butterfly pair, one stud fell out after 1 day - we found the earing (squashed after having been stood on!) but not the back. With a bit of persuasion, my dear old Mum managed to get them refunded for me.

I have bought earrings from Argos, H Samuel and HPJ (they lasted the longest in the past but have not been too satisfied with any of them.

So, just wondered if anyone had found a good pair of studs, maybe with an extra secure back or something, or very small hoops (hoops do seem to last better) that don't fall out?

Looking to spend up to £15/£20
Rep will be left, Thanks

well yeah you do know its like child abuse to have a childs ears pierced before the age of 12 dont you?

doubt very much she asked for her ears piercing at such a young age!!!!!!
:x

The ones my daughter got from Claires accessories,when she got them pierced stayed in...they have special backs that keeps the butterfly at the right distance from the ear...so its a twist and pull motion to get it off..they never fell off..and they have loads of designs...you have to ask for them as they are in a display case at the earpiercing section

You know when you buy earrings with no backs on, but that are hooks? In the shops they put those little plastic tubes on them so that they don't fall off the packaging? You could try putting those on after the backs of stud earrings as well. That might help.

I hope that makes sense, I'm useless at describing things.

Maybe when shes old enough to look after her own earrings and keep them in herself? Most older children don't play with them or take them out.

She doesn't take them out or fiddle with them, maybe it's just because she is more active than an adult, I don't know? I have had the occasional pair that tend to fall out too, I just don't seem to have had luck with my daughters

my daughter had hers done when she was 6,she had been asking for about a year prior to me letting her have them done

my daught is always losing her earings too and she is 12 now

my daughter is 5 and harped on about it for so long i let her...she was fine getting it done ..i hardly think getting a kids ears pierced can be described as "child abuse" especially after the horrific "child abuse"cases that have been in the news ...its not quite in the same league..what a silly comment to make

I agree with the above my two daughters only manage to keep the ones from claires (must be the ones they put in when they pierce the ears) think they cost aroung £18,

will just have to agree to disgree on this whole subject .......obviously not everyone has my view.......but as an x gym teacher that has had to deal with ripped ear lobes due to earings I feel strongly on this one .

I am with you 100% on this one. I fail to see why a child under, say 11, should have their ears pierced.

"Mummy, I want pretty earrings like you"

"You can't, because the piercing may be painful and the area can become infected"

"Mummy, I am 6, I have no comprehension of what you just said and I fail to understand what "infection" means. I just want pretty ears"

Just because they ask for it a lot, doesn't mean they should get it. When a child of 6 can be taught that a certain action is going to result in potential pain and infection and can understand that series of events and how it relates to them, then they can have any body modification they want.

Surely child abuse is child abuse. Whether it's slapping a kid once in in the face or stabbing them 10 times, it's still child abuse.

That's like saying rape is less serious if the woman was drunk. No. Rape is rape.

Put it another way

young child gets ears pierced = tears and crying
Adult gets ears pierced = no crying

Of course not. I don't think so anyway. I just got the impression from your posts that perhaps you were saying that some child abuse is "less bad" than other forms.

I may not agree that a 5 year old should have pierced ears, but does that make you a child abuser? Does it hell!

So if your daughter wanted her nose pierced would you let her if she went on about it for long enough?
after all whats the difference?

My daughter is 5 and also wanted her ears pierced. So without committing one way or the other, we started to investigate things.

She went for her flu jamb at which she cried. When i explained that the ear piercing would be similar but done twice she started to rethink. Then when shopping we popped into claires where a little baby boy was having an ear pierced (personally i dont agree with babies who cannot reason having any form of body modification). He yelled the place down and so for now my little lass has decided to wait until she's older to have it done.

Now I buy those stick on body gems for her ears, she has pinks, blues, greens, silvers, golds and white diamond effect. The just about last the day but they are so inespensive. 1 set lasts ages as you are only using 2 gems at a time!

As for the OP's issue i too would reccomend buying the betterware (or was it kleeneeze?) backs. They arent butterfly style - more like a bell shaped tube. But the tube grips the post really well so they stay in for ages! I'm always losing my earrings and these work a treat! Photo isnt exactly the betterware ones but they are similar style.

EDIT: Just had a quick google for you, you can get spring loaded butterfly backs that help secure the earring, and you can also buy earrings with screw posts, so you screw the backs on - another potential soloution!

i can 100% say i dont think child abuse has levels....like low/med/high...........there is no less bad....if you read back you will see a post saying that "getting a young childs ears pierced is child abuse".............that is what i was replying to.
As someone who deals with abused kids on many levels....so to compare me a mum who lets her 5 year old get hers done to a child abuser.......that should explain it.:)

i was waiting on you asking that...what i choose to allow my daughter to and not to do is really not the point or have anything to do with you ............the point is you think ear piercing a 5 year old is child abuse......i dont.

OMG! how on earth did a thread about looking for earrings turn into the subject of child abuse and rape?.......silly me.......I should have seen it coming :roll:

I am quite speechless as to what this thread has turned into - I expected the odd comment about she shouldn't have her ears pierced as some people can't help themselves but I can't believe the term 'child abuse' has even enter this thread and I am upset that some people see it this way and are basically calling me a child abuser!!! :x when I think of child abuse I think of starving neglected kids who get locked in the cellar and beaten every day - not wearing 'pretty' earrings :w00t:


Thanks to those that helped, going to look in Claire's tomorrow and will also look into the screw on earrings and the plastic backs if I do end up getting a normal pair of studs, thanks :thumbsup:

Why do people have to be so judgemental? The op didnt ask for a lecture, she only wanted some advice on where to buy earings and not sarcastic remarks on parental skills! Some people have nothing better to do than have a go at people for nothing, If a post doesn't interest someone shouldn't they just pass it by???

By the way I find the earings in Claires really good too!

Go for the ones that they use for when they get their ears pierced, they are comfortable too

Claire's have actually got all there piercing earrings on their website and some of them are nice - think the ones she will like are £21. Will ask to see them instore and find out how secure they are.

Was just looking at the screw on earrings on Google, though - I might be better going for those, will see after our shopping trip :thumbsup:

Mrs z......hope you get what your looking for,as i said claires are the best i have found..they dont move intowards the ear so the butterfly never presses into the earlobe....and they dont fall off!!x
