**Thank you to our reviewer Krista for her excellent review of the new Vicks AGESMART Family Thermometer**
When I was asked if I’d be interested in reviewing the new Vicks AGESMART™ Family Thermometer, I jumped at the chance. With a teething baby, fall clearly here, cold and flu season kicking in I was interested to see what edge this thermometer might have over others.
Here’s what you’ll find in the box…
It comes with the thermometer, detailed instructions, probe covers and a cover to protect the thermometer. Once out of the package you simply and easily choose your age range, turn it on and take your temperature. This can be done orally, rectal, or under the arm.
I tested it on myself under the tongue and as I have small children I used it under their arms. It is quick and accurate it took 8 seconds (exactly as it says) to get my reading. The green light indicated my temperature was normal at that time. If a low grade fever is present it will be a yellow light, which was the case with my teething toddler. If a high grade fever is present you will get a red light.
I love this new thermometer!
It is especially handy as I have a toddler and a young child in my home. No more Googling, calling Teleheath or looking for temperature charts in the middle of the night for Celsius/Fahrenheit conversions to see if it’s a “normal” temperature.
When it comes to having a fever, age truly does matters. What is considered normal body temperature in a 5 year old may be regarded as fever in a new born. Vicks AGESMART is the first age-adjustable thermometer, using medical guidelines to interpret temperatures. This is available to you at the simple touch of a button.
The many features include: Fever Insight Feature, Screen color displays fever levels: OK, Mild Fever, and High Fever, Faster 8 second temperature read-out, Displays in Celsius and Fahrenheit, Flexible tip that is also softer and more gentle, Professional accuracy and is Water resistant for easy cleaning. It comes with a Lifetime Warranty!
The Vicks AGESMART™ Family Thermometer is a truly inexpensive way to help you keep your family safe and well!

when my oldest daughter was smaller using the one I had trying to stick it under her armpit
Jonnie (JB) says
My kids are 5 years apart so this would have been handy every time they’ve been sick. I really love that it’s both fahrenheit and celcius – I hate trying to interpret the thermometer i own now!

With having 4 boys, it always seem like they are sharing their stomach bugs and viruses with each other. with it being able to read a temp. in 8 seconds, that would be a God sent so it would make our life easier when they are sick :)
When it’s in the middle of the night, my baby boy seems like having a fever but I am not sure if the temperature is right or slightly too high for his age
Anne Taylor says
when my eldest daughter had her first shots and she had such a bad reaction to them; she had a super high fever
Stephanie LaPlante says
A couple months ago. I didn’t know how high my fever actually was until my skin burned and peeled off. Weird eh? I REALLY need one of these.
Karry Knisley says
I could have used this when both kids and myself were sick and it was hard to tell by touch if anyone had a fever
Mommy Outside says
Oh too many times to even mention I’m afraid :(
When I had to take the temperature of my dog.
Denise G says
There are numerous times. Like above too many to count.

My son has autism and therefore screams when he is not well (he is not able to express what is wrong) …. this would come in handy knowing if he has a fever and that is what is bothering him.
Karla Sceviour says
Its always good to have a thermometer on hand,which I do not right now! :( I need this! Thanks.
Many times I have been unwell and wanting to check my temperature but the thermometer wasn’t working or had a low battery and not able to give a reading.
when my baby boy was 6 months old and had pneumonia. Always wondered if the thermometer we had was working properly.
When I’m sick and I can tell if I can’t tell how high my fever is by touch or if I had one.
Doris Calvert says
When I had adult chicken pox and temp was 104
lisa b says

How about everytime my impaired child gets sick!! 8 seconds? That would be awesome since most impaired children resist anything out of the ordinary like trying to take a temp.
eleanor q says
I’d really like this thermometer for when someone in my family is running a fever or feeling sick.
I haven’t had a time when I’ve needed this yet, but would like to be prepared for future children!
Katharine W says
There were a few times we wished we had a proper thermometer with the baby was sick especially in the middle of the night when she was irritable.
julie bolduc says
I really liked the mercury thermometer but can’t find them.anymore!!!
Everytime there is an illness in my home I wish I had a thermometer!
My son had a very high fever over Christmas a couple years ago and we were at a friends house overnight. They didn’t have a thermometer. I could have really used one then!
Anytime someone is sick or feeling sick.
Caryn s says
I wish I had this thermometer right now as both my kids are sick with colds!
Dayle B. says
When the flu hit our family in the summer – how yucky.

As a good mom should. Great and useful giveaway. too.
Angela M says
I wish I had this thermometer for a middle of the night wakeup with our daughter when our thermometer was broken.
great to keep in a travel bag as this is something you tend to remember to pack
This would have been great when the kids were little. :-)
I wish I had this when my boys had the flu! Ours just quit working, and with flu season coming, and my boys just starting JK this year, I know we need one!

I wish I’d had the Vicks AGESMART Family Thermometer when my son had an ear ache.
Erika E says
I wish I’d had it last weekend when I was trying to get my son to hold a thermometer under his tongue.
