If you have little ones like I do, you know how often you are in need of an ice pack or hot wrap. It seems like they’re always scraping or bumping something! ButWoopsies Kid Comfort Hot and Cold for Boo Boos! usually, trying to get them to sit still while you hold the ice is a struggle. If you have the same problem, let me introduce you to Woopsies. They’re adorable little critters, similar to a boo-boo bunny that you can either use cold or hot.

Woopsies come in many different colors, and they all have different personalities. They’re like boo-boo bunny ice packs with attitude! There is Zibble, a blue critter with a gentle smile and pointed ears; Arble, a little green guy with a grin that shows off his one tooth; Freedle, the orange one with outstretched arms ready to comfort boo-boos; Whoodle, a pink creature with a concerned expression; Zooble, who is purple and has an infectious smile; and Bozzle, a yellow buddy whose expression seems to say, “I’m sorry you have an owie!”

One of the best things about Woopsies is that they are made of sustainable material. Unlike boo-boo bunnies, these Woopsie - Zibble (Blue)guys are made of bamboo terrycloth. They’re filled with buckwheat, which gives them a soft, squishy, lovable consistency. This also gives them a lot of flexibility – they can be put in the microwave for 20 seconds for moist heat, and they can be used as cold packs by freezing them for two hours. They will stay hot or cold for about 30 minutes, which is plenty of time to help your little one recover. And did I mention that they’re machine washable?

These little boo-boo buddies will not only provide therapeutic heat or cold for your child’s ouchies, they also provide companionship and sympathy.Woopsie - Bozzle (Yellow)Their sweet little faces will help take your little one’s mind off the discomfort.

Ice Pack to the Rescue!

As one of the customer service specialists, it is particularly satisfying when the products I represent Ice wraps come to my rescue!

It’s that magical time of year when we head out doors in earnest, and like you, I’m no exception to that. One of activities I enjoy is rollerblading! I have chronically bad knees so jogging just isn’t possible for me. Rollerblading is low impact and a wonderful way to get back into shape after sitting indoors all winter long.

This year with the addition of two dogs to my family, I decided a wonderful way to exercise the dogs as well as myself would be to take the dogs rollerblading with me! And for the first few days, it was perfect! Granted…the road was a little rough but I got to move and the dogs got to run! So far so good…

I’m sure you’ve guessed…all was not to end well. One afternoon, I started down the road, the dogs in the lead and I heard a car approaching from behind. Normally, I simply move over to the side with the dogs in tow. Well, on this day I was coming up to a driveway, and thought how convenient…I can simply skate into the drive and stop there. (yes I know the owners of the driveway).

Unknown to me…there was a rather large stone which of course my rollerblade managed to find. Down I went! Fast and hard, knee first. I quickly realized continuing to skid across pavement on my knee was not really the best method to stop and chose to finish off my fall with a head over heel roll. Ouch! It must have looked rather dramatic since the car stopped to be sure I was ok.

Once the initial shock wore off, I assessed the damage (which to my knee was conservable), took off my rollerblades and hobbled home with the dogs untangled and seeming rather pleased with my neat trick!

Once home, I cleaned myself up…bandaged up my knee and grabbed an ice pack since I could see my knee swelling minute by minute! I followed the general suggestion of 10 to 20 minutes on let things warm up for about an hour…and back to the 10 to 20 minutes on. It was so convenient to but the ice insert in the wrap, velcro it in place and let the cold do it’s work.

I continued to ice for the next couple days and much to my delight, the swelling went down pretty quickly and I didn’t even wind up with a black and blue knee! (Road rash however is still plaguing me!)
