Warm Buddy Plush Polar Bear

Fevers, runny noses, sore throats, headaches, sneezing, a nagging cough and an abundance of aches and pains are common symptoms during the winter/holiday season. We deal with colds and the flu and spend days if not weeks in bed trying to recover. But, there are things we can do to prevent the flu, so we can enjoy the merriment of the season. We need to stay warm, take more vitamin C and embrace the warmth of a plush Warm Buddy.  They carry a variety of adorable animals and my family loves them all.

Warm Buddy is known for its plush heat therapy products with remarkable heat holding abilities. Their loveable Warm -Up Animals are very popular because they’re cuddly, comforting and consoling when we feel under the weather. Aside from the Plush Animals, they also carry a variety of therapeutic spa products; some of which are infused with lovely aromatherapy scents. Their products will keep you cozy warm, ease discomfort, soothe aches and pains, and put you in a tranquil place. The Warm-Up Plush Animals are by far my family’s favorites. This year we got their new adorable Polar Bear.

Warm Buddy Polar Bear

The plush Polar Bear is fairly large measuring 18″ long and made from the softest, fluffiest and silkiest fur to the touch. He’s opulently plush and perfect for snuggling when you don’t feel well. They’re so much nicer to embrace and cuddle up with than a rubber-smelling, potentially leaking, hot water bottle any day.

The Warm-Up Animals can be used for both hot and cold therapy. On the Polar Bear, there is a velcro opening on his right side that houses the removable pack. The pack measures 7 x 5 inches and it’s filled with a natural ingredient, milled white rice, and it has a cotton cover and a polyester outer shell. The pack is made right here in Canada where standards are high.

It’s very easy to cool and heat the pack. To cool, place in a plastic bag and then in the freezer for an hour or more. To heat, place in the microwave for 1 – 2 minutes on high. Caution is required because the pack can get very hot to handle, so only adults should handle this task. I only heat the pack for 2 minutes and replace it inside the Polar Bear’s tummy. We found the heat lasts approximately 2 – 3 hours before having to reheat the pack. The velcro strip seals the pack inside the bear fairy tightly, so it’s secure to use on children. The heat trapped in the Warm-Up Animals is soothing, relaxing and comforting, and everyone in my family loves them.

All of the Warm Buddy products are made from high-quality materials, are hypoallergenic and have machine washable covers. With the Polar Bear being a light color, chances are I’m going to have to wash it at some point in the future. I already have a few of the Warm Buddy products and have washed our brown bear a few times on the gentle cycle. I then put him in the dryer for about 3 or so minutes just to fluff him up and then I air dry him. He’s quite durable, so far he’s maintained his shape, color and plush feel and several years of use.

The cushy Warm Buddy Animals are popular in my home. Kids love them as reading and sleepytime companions. They also cheer a child up that might be having a bad day. They’re best friends who offer emotional comfort and a soft shoulder to cry on. Christmas is only weeks away and I can’t think of a nicer gift to give someone I care about. They come in a variety of different animals and retail from $29.99 – $39.99.
