Hello, can anyone recommend small in-ear earplugs for my ds (6)? He is very noise sensitive but would love, this year, to attend a fireworks display. I would be really grateful for any suggestions. Thanks smile

I use some silicon ones from the chemist, they are called Bioears.
Very easy to mould and don't fall out.
they look large but my ds 3.10 manages with them fine, and they are much better imo than foam ones

I wouldn't use earplugs. I bought DS2 (also noise sensitive) some Peltor ear defenders, and they are fantastic for blocking out noise. Bought his first pair off Ebay, but he broke them (he can break unbreakable things) and bought a new pair from the local hunting/fishing shop.

We thought they would be ideal for fireworks, but he was still hysterical sad. The only way you'll get no sound at all is if you buy electric ones, but they are £80+

Thanks everyone, it went better than expected to be honest but still not great!
