This January, Band-Aid released Muppet-themed bandages, made specifically for cuts and bruises found on the bodies of ToughPigs readers (we’re a scrappy bunch). As if anyone needed more incentive to buy such an amazing product, Band-Aid has just launched an app to help promote it.
Available in the iPhone and iPad, Band-Aid Magic Vision Starring Disney’s the Muppets (that’s a mouthful!) allows you to scan one of your Muppet Band-Aids (or the box… it’s not really picky) and then play a mini-game with Kermit, Piggy, or Gonzo. When I say “mini-game”, I mean really mini. As you’ll see in a second.
For a free app with some simple graphics and audio, I was pretty pleased with what I got. I ended up buying a box of Band-Aids, so I guess the promotion worked. But even if you don’t want to shell out a few bucks, you can print out a picture of a Band-Aid directly from the app to scan at your leisure.
Click here to get the app, and try not to hurt yourself while doing it. But if you do, I have some extra Band-Aids to help you heal.
