Buddy Gel Pack product reviews

Use them Warm - just warm it in a bowl of water, or in the microwave (no longer than 20 seconds on 600 Watts).

Use them Cold - keep a couple of these in the freezer at all times, they are handy to have on hand to put on bumps and scrapes. Use them after an injection to help prevent swelling, and distract your child - they end up focused on the buddy not the pain. When using from the freezer always have a cloth between the skin and the buddy.

Buddy is comforting and relieves pain cause by swelling and bruising. Use a Cold Buddy to treat any incidents from strains and bruises to insect bites.

Buddy gel contains no toxic materials and is Phalate-Free.

Choose from two great designs - snowman or ambulance

Monkey Buttons gave me a snowman Buddy Gel Pack to review. This is ideal for my household with two preschoolers of my own plus doing homebased childcare. The children were curious about it as soon as I opened the parcel and I don't blame them. He is very cute. I put him in the fridge and waited for a child to hurt themselves.

The first time it was needed was when my youngest daughter was a bit rough with her big sister. While I was cuddling the injured party I sent the guilty party to the fridge for the snowman. Once the snowman was on the sore arm the tears stopped. It was like giving her a teddy bear but I also knew it would help ease the physical as well as the emotional discomfort.

The snowman wasn't as cold from the fridge as an ice pack would be from the fridge. This meant that it was able to be applied straight on the skin but it also wasn't as cold as I would expect an ice pack. It was more of an instant distraction until I could get the frozen peas onto it for big bumps. For minor bumps it is perfect.

I am pleased we have the snowman rather than the ambulance. I can tell a child to get the snowman without confusion. If I said to a child (or worse an adult that didn't know about the buddy gel pack) to get the ambulance we may end up with the emergency services being called for a tiny bump.

It is also great to know that if I pop it in the microwave or warm water to give me a heat pack for aches and pains or even just to warm my hands. I'll need a second one so I can have one in each pocket on a cold day. It is great that the contents are non-toxic especially around young kids. The best thing about it is the kids love it and prefer it over an ice pack from the freezer which I could never keep on them for more than a couple of seconds.
