Product Revew: Hurtie Hug for Hurt Kids
posted by: Julie B
I usually try and pick edible products or items that might accessorize my or my son’s wardrobe for the product review. This was not the case for October. It’s back to school and I got an adorable e-mail from Katie of Hurtie Hug and I have soft spot for local entrepreneurial moms . . so I agreed to give the Hurtie Hug a whirl. There was no food involved but there was an accessory!
The purple Hurtie Hug ended up sitting on my counter for two weeks, my 1-year-old was not big enough to wear it. He had gotten plenty of bruises, cuts and bumps during those two weeks that would have benefited from the sample product, but alas, I had no need for it. Then I thought; we are the wrong demographic. The Hurtie Hug is adorable and girly, why not see if Emma, my 12-year-old, soccer-playing neighbor could benefit from the product. Ahhhaa.
The Hurtie Hug is the ultimate stylish accessory for the young girl, boy and tween who injures herself during a soccer practice, jazz class, Kung Fu session, Emma informed me. She liked it because it stayed in place and did not allow her ice pack to leak anywhere. Emma also liked how the ice pack did not have to come in direct contact with her skin since it was in the Hurtie Hug pouch. There’s the entire product perfectly explained by Emma!
Basically, it’s a fleece pouch that holds a hot or cold pack for injury. While I was not able to test it out on any 3 or 4-year-olds, I think either gender would love the fleece creatures for covering up boo-boos. The Hurtie Hug is available in yellow, purple, pink and blue making it an easier sell at times for toddlers who can be choosy with colors.
Is this a product I would run out and buy? Not as a mom of a 1-year-old. However, it would make a cute gift for a coach of a team, or a get well for that injured football player or cheerleader this fall. As I embark on toddler-hood, this item is a nice thing to keep in the back of my head should we have any resistance to ice packs. In the meantime, athletes, friends and family of athletes, this could be a clever stock stuffer or sympathy gift. Visit www.hurtiehug.com for more information and to purchase the product. Each Hurtie Hug retails for $15.99.
