Yesterday I enjoyed lunch with two very wise friends. One of which is a mom to two boys. Scratch that, they both have two boys. Anyway, one mom recommended the Sliver Grippers as a mom's best friend. She testified of their incredible splinter removing power as well as the sharp point to penetrate the skin so that you don't have to whip out a needle and scare your kid half to death just to pick out a cactus thorn.
