Warm Buddy is a Canada- based company that makes tons of products that soothe, comfort and relax! All of the products are not only very comforting in touch, but can also be cooled off or heated up.
Karen McGee, the creator, is a registered nurse and was interested in alternative medicine, that led her to a natural healing hospital in India. There she discovered heat therapy and her idea was born.
When she returned to Canada, she put her idea to use, and in 1995, the first warm buddy was born. Originally, they were aimed towards the medical market. The idea spread and evolved to the cute creatures Warm Buddy offers now. The animals were a huge hit with sick children and older patients as well.
Later down the line, fabrics like chenille and silks were introduced, which opened up a door to the spa world. All of the products are comforting and soothing, which I am sure we could all appreciate!
Warm buddy items can be cooled in the freezer to relieve swelling or heated up to comfort and relieve stress.
I had the opportunity to review two items from the store- The Baby Wooly and the Body Wrap. I was pleased with both items, and I think they will come in handy with my clumsy 3-year old and with all my muscle tension!
Wooly the sheep is the perfect size for the kids.These are the original warm up animals! Not only is it precious and my daughter loved it first off. The sheep is very friendly looking, and very very soft. It was very useful! On the backside of the sheep, there is a velcro closure, open it. Inside, you will find a pouch. That pouch can be heated up or put in the freezer. We heated it up for nighttime, and cooled it down for bumps and bruises. Worked like a charm. Wooly the sheep is for everyone over the age of 1, and a great item to have around! The Warm Buddy family includes puppies, kittens, leopards, sheep, bears, and frogs.
The Warm Buddy Body wrap is right up my alley. No doubt about it. As you can see, the body wrap is a great size for us grown-ups. The body wrap can also be heated in the microwave or cooled in the freezer. Inside there are natural grains and lavender flowers. This body wrap can be used on the shoulders, back, neck, stomach or hips. It comes in several different colors and has a washable cover.
I have already put both items to good use.
I love that all items from Warm Buddy are made of all natural ingredients.
