I was excited to try the Cool Gel n’ Cap because like every parent before me, my children tend to either get sick or have accidents. My son, Spencer, tripped on his shoe laces last year and smacked his head good.
This would have been perfect to have in my home to help him heal!
When I got the package I was happy it wasn’t a girly colour. It was unisex in a grey bunny form.(Tulip the Bunny) Since I have both a boy and a girl, I try to keep things that they would share in neutral colours.
I was reading the box and saw that the warm package was good for earaches too! Now I wished I had known about this earlier! Spencer had an extremely bad earache this winter. If I had it handy it probably would have done more to help him.
The Cool Gel n’ Cap comes with 1 easy to adjust hat and 2 non-toxic gel packs.
The non-toxic gel packs can be placed in the freezer (cold) or in the microwave for 10 seconds (hot)
If you don’t have a microwave then just place the non-toxic gel packs in hot water to heat up.
All caps are machine washable.
There are 2 styles to choose from:
Tulip the Bunny (which we received)
Toby the Puppy
$12.99 plus shipping from the Cool Gel n’ Cap site (Free shipping if in U.S)
