To be fair, the Critter Clips don't serve the same purpose. The one on the show was supposed to keep the hearing aid in while they're running around, so they always have awareness of their surroundings. The Critter Clips aren't a retention device. They're lanyards so the aids won't get lost or damaged when they do fall out, but they do nothing to keep them from falling out in the first place. It's not like kids won't notice when they lose their hearing aids. Wouldn't you notice if your hearing suddenly failed?
Not to say the clip on the show was all that original, though. The lower left corner of that Critter Clips ad already shows a behind-the-ear hearing aid. If the guy really had that much problem with his daughter losing her hearing aid, he should have gotten that style.
