Make sure to update your child's Ident-A-Kid card!

It is a great idea to get an Ident-A-Kid card for your child, but you have to be sure to keep it up-to-date!

Why get a new Ident-A-Kid card every year when I can just get one for my child and renew it in a few years? This is a question that is frequently asked of us here at Ident-A-Kid. According to the World Health Organization at, children between the ages of 5 and 19 can grow from 2 to 4 inches and gain up to 10 pounds per year! Also, according to, children’s hair color can change or darken as they grow older; going from a blonde head of hair to brunette. All this growing and changing can make a very big difference in your child’s appearance. It is very important to have an up-to-date, accurate picture and description of your child at all times. With an accurate description of your child, he/she can be found much easier and more efficiently if lost or missing. Not having the right weight, height or hair color can greatly hinder the search for a missing child.
