Type 1 Diabetes is a life-changing diagnosis with a huge learning curve. The testing, the equipment, the new terminology, the food restrictions, the constant monitoring... It can be a heck of a curve ball for the whole family, while also not being easy for the educators specializing in this field who have so much to impart during a time when overwhelm is real & prevalent.

We worked with the wonderfully sharing Katie Lamb to represent her T1 experience as she would’ve liked to see it when she was starting out.

There are 25 colourful pieces in this set. These include:

2 children with CGM

Diabetes pride clothing pieces


Shorts, pants

Dress, skirt

Hypo treatments – juice box, candies, glucose tablets

Water bottle

Blood glucose monitor

Test strips bottle

Blood sugar kit

Insulin injection pens

Insulin pumps – tubed and tubeless

Sharps bin

Carry case

Recommended for ages 3+

Always supervise play.

We do our best to make our toys safe and use the highest quality inks & materials, but they are still vinyl magnets, and should never be ingested by anyone, no matter their age.

How To Use

Magnets work best when played with on a metal surface – fridges, cookie sheets, magnetic dry erase boards, school lockers, tin lids...

One of our favourite ways is to put the printed backgrounds on a baking tray for use as a portable play surface - double bonus: the tray sides are great at containing all the pieces & any colouring tools used in one place!

Care Instructions

Because: little fingers!

Our magnets can be washed with water and gentle detergent whenever necessary. Pat dry with a tissue, or leave them to air dry. Easy peasy.

Note: magnets can become brittle at freezing temperatures, so should be used at room temp. Long exposure to direct sunlight can lead to colour fading.


The child piece(s) are roughly 5" tall. All the other pieces in the set(s) are sized to fit them. While the pieces are fairly large, there is still a choking hazard for wee ones.
