Both of my girls have pink...they are light so you cant even tell if they dont match something...which is usually good:) We love them!!

We got bright pink at first, with the thought in mind that they would be easier to find when she took them off/threw them (which she did as a toddler.)

Recently we had to get the cases redone because of cracking and my daughter changed to purple, which is her favorite color.

Just don't go for beige/tan----too easy to lose with tan carpets and so forth.  Also, I think it makes people think "old."  Just my opinion.

Our issue was picking a colour for our little boy... pink and some animal prints are cute on girls, not so much on boys.  We got sand coloured BTE aids for Jack.  They blend in really well with his colouring (pale, blue eyed blonde with not a lot of hair)- they're more golden and nice looking than the standard tan but if he's wearing them you can't really see them.  Then we bought eargear (http://www.gearforears.com/) in a colour to prevent losing them and for better visibility.  Once he gets to an age where he cares about the colour he can pick his own coloured eargear until the next time we buy aids.

I did beads...you can get them at AC Moore or Michaels. I just did one they go on the tubes and you can do them to match the girls outfits...they are very cute.  The older girls have two or three, but because theirs where so small they only got 1!!

My son is 5 and he has red and blue swirl molds, he calls them his Spiderman ears, when kids ask him what they are...he is very proud of them.

I am going to order cow spots for my little boy that is one of the only animals he can identify so we thought he would like them. Less likely to eat them lol. But my little girl is probably just getting pink ones.

We started with bright pink for my daughter when she got her first pair at a year old, we stayed with this color for a while. Once she was old enough (shes 4 now) she decided she wanted pink but with glitter in them, and then she wanted just the plain bright pink this past time. Shes about due for a new set of molds so we will see what she picks, lol.  Im not sure how old your daughter is, but if shes young, go with what you think looks best and then let her pick as she gets older, helps them accept it more if they can control at least something about having to wear them, it does for my daughter anyway. :)

I agree.  Let them have something fun!!  I have a boy and he wanted Royal Blue and recently he picked solid red ear molds.
