WarmBuddy Review and Giveaway

Do you sometimes suffer from aches and pains that Advil or Aleve can't cure? You hope that "sleeping it off" will help, but sometimes the pain is still there when you wake up. There is an aid for this!

Who is WarmBuddy?
Karen McKee developed the first Warm Buddy heat wrap in 1995. These heat wraps surpassed what was on the market with improved heat holding capabilities, the addition of herbs and essential oils and unique designs and shapes. Originally, Warm Buddy products were aimed at the medical market and were widely used by medical practitioners and massage therapists in their treatments.

Karen's Warm Buddy product line quickly grew and evolved. The development of our warm-up plush animals, known to many as Warm Buddies, included teddy bears, kittens and puppies. These cute stuffed push animals added a new dimension to the Warm Buddy business. Warm Buddy warm-up plush animals are a huge comfort to sick children and have been used in children's cancer wards, as well as helping to soothe the elderly, or simply to appeal to the child in all of us.

Warm Buddy warm-up plush animals have recently won the PTPA Media award for excellence in parenting products.

The introduction of elegant designer silks and soft chenille fabrics to Karen's aromatherapy wraps led her straight to the giftware and spa market. Elegant Warm Buddy products are now sold in leading spas and gift stores across Canada and the US. Warm Buddy now creates the most luxurious spa robes.

I received a small beary cream warm buddy stuffed animal, and a body wrap.

Let's talk about the body wrap first:
(I received the same sage swirl color that the model is demonstrating)

The Body Wrap is the Warm Buddy staff's favorite heat wrap / heat pack. Simply heat in the microwave or cool in the freezer as desired. Covers are available in the most luxurious soft swirl fabrics.

The body heat wrap contains natural grains & lavender flowers. It has LONG HEAT HOLDING ability of 1 hour or longer. Makes a very effective cold pack (place in freezer 1-2 hours).

Use heat wrap therapy to relieve stress and comfort sore backs, shoulders, necks, hips, stomachs and all aches and pains. A great hot water bottle alternative for warming up the bed. Packaged for travel, and washable cover. (10" x 20")

I think this looks fantastic. Even though this is used for aches and pains, I think it would be a good idea to microwave it to use it on those freezing winter nights when you just can't seem to stay warm. It has a great lavender-y smell to it too! It is very comfortable and soft, and I love it! It has a small opening in its back which the pack goes in and you can velcro it closed. I microwaved the pack and it got very hot and makes the whole bear warm! It's not burning hot, but it's pretty warm.

The warm buddy small beary is the cutest thing ever! This product is genius, especially for small children. You pair an adorable bear with a freezeable or microwavable pack, how can you go wrong?

(I received the bear in the middle)
I love this bear. He has such a sweet face and is so soft. The tag on him says that a small portion of the sales from Warm Buddy bears will be donated to allow bear rehabilitators to care for cubs in need. Warm Buddy Co. wants to help bears live free in their natural habitat.

Small Beary Bear stands 14". They are available in three color options: cream chocolate and black. These microwavable teddy bears come with a removable heat pack.

I know I am going to enjoy the bear and the body wrap, these are great products!

  24. Hi, Sammi

    What a great giveaway.

    I would love to win the body wrap for three reasons:

    1) I could use it cold to help with my back, hip, knee, shoulders and neck. I had to ice 2day with lunch box ice packs.

    2)DH could use it for his aches and pains from gardening

    3) DD has a health issue she is suppose to stay warm sometimes her heat in her room is on 90 degrees in the winter a warmed body wrap would help her and help my electric bill.

    thanks,
    fluerdelyis (CJ)

  70. I have a bad back that stems from a car accident several years ago. The body wrap is just what I need to soothe it! I have a son turning 5 soon that would adore the bear! He loves teddy bears and is always asking me to put his blankie in the dryer so he and his friends (the teddies) can snuggle and be warm at bedtime. The warm buddy teddy bear would be so perfect for him! What a neat invention!
