This thermometer has all the bells and whistles, but does not overdo it with unnecessary accessories. This thermometer is fast, accurate, and easy to read. It even has a large color changing display that notifies you if your child has a fever (red), no fever (green), or is approaching a fever (yellow), which is always helpful when you are half asleep in the middle of the night. The thermometer also has a flexible hypoallergenic tip and is waterproof. Be warned some parents have had problems with a short battery life and difficulty removing the battery.

  • Location: Oral, axillary, or rectal

Featured On:

  • LATimes
Mabis Healthcare Zoo Temps will take an accurate temperature, but the 30 second time frame is a little longer than other comparable models on the market. The thermometer’s design is fun and appealing to children and may make it easier to coax them to take a temperature rather than the sterile look of most other thermometers. The screen however, is smaller then many other units, but readable.

  • Speed: 30 seconds
  • Location: Oral, axillary, or rectal
  • Special features: Zoo animal designs, colorful, soft flexible tip, auto shut off, memory recall, beeps at maximum temperature, water resistant
