It’s part two of my Warm Buddy feature… and hands down, this is the coolest (and warmest) bear I’ve ever encountered!
Warm Buddy Beary, a PTPA Award Winner, is the very perfect bedtime companion to help relax and soothe children to sleep.
Wondering what makes him so special? Beary comes with a removable inner heat pack that can be warmed in the microwave or cooled in the freezer – a wonderful advantage for cuddling up on cold winter nights or cooling off feverish children. We’ve taken Beary along on countless road trips in the winter – with his soft, fuzzy belly radiating soothing warmth, he is the perfect travel companion too.
But don’t take my word for it – Ryder loves Beary! He is his preferred bed mate and even makes an appearance at the dinner table from time to time (Beary has a separate booster seat of course). The bear is so soft, cuddly and perfect for snuggling. Just by touch, there is absolutely no way you can tell that there is a heat/cool pack buried in Beary’s tummy; a definite bonus when matched up against curious little fingers (strong velcro fasteners keep the bear closed at the back).
Also impressive is that the stuffed animal looks just like the bears you would find at high-end toy stores. I’m talking FAO Schwartz calibre! It’s impossible not to notice the quality visible in every aspect of the bear – from the fact that it is made in North America with 100% polyester fibres to the fine sewing detail made evident by Beary’s durability. Even the heat/cool pack is filled with natural milled rice – so if some reason it tore open, there’s no need to worry about chemical-laden products spilling all over the place.
In my experience, the pack was heated perfectly after zapping it for 1.5 minutes. It retained most of its heat for about 45 minutes and then cooled off completely in less than one hour (thereby eliminating the fear of a child overheating). When frozen, the bear let off a subtle cooling sensation which made it both possible to cuddle the bear and appreciate the fringe benefits.
Beary is available in 3 sizes (small, large and jumbo) and 3 colours (chocolate, cream and black). Warm Buddy is proud to donate a portion of sales to Bears Matter and their conservation efforts. Bears Matter’s mission is to help conserve all species of wild bear populations, by providing a forum and funding for specific bear conservation issues around the world.
