Identicator's "Officer Thumby" Child Fingerprinting kits provide an immediate, permanent record for positive identification, complete with the child's physical characteristics, fingerprints and space for the child's photograph. The kits use special Perfect Ink, which produces permanent black fingerprints on paper without the mess and fuss of traditional fingerprinting. Any residue remaining rubs off with a paper towel. Both kits include a customization area. The do-at-Home kit includes an Officer Thumby fingerprint card, instructions and ink strip enclosed in an envelope, ready to be distributed. It is designed for home use, allowing the parent to the fingerprint the child.
