BOO BOO ZOO Review and Giveaway!

Hey Neighbors!

I found another really great Etsy Shop! It is called Boo Boo Zoo. She makes cute little warm and cold packs, for aches and pains. She makes them for both children and adults. I love the shapes and material she uses. I received a Cowboy Boot, which my daughter has used. And then several pairs of hand warmers which we are taking on a trip out west soon. Her Boo Boo Bags come in an assortment of animal shapes, Owl, Butterfly, Hippo, and Kitty just to name a few. There are bugs, cupcakes, popsicles, trains, rocket ships, etc. To top it all off they are priced very reasonably. ($5-$6)





The Hand Warmers called Happy Hands Warmers run $3-$5. They are perfect for those cool days when you can warm them and stick them in your child's pockets. Or when they come in from playing and want to warm their hands.



Any of these can be chilled for a child running a temperature, or when they come in and want to cool down.

The Wrist Wraps are great for someone with a sprain, or Carpel Tunnel. I did not receive one of these but they look like they would work great! The Wrist Wraps run $4.50.

About Boo Boo Zoo:

"#5 - what got you started with your Etsy shop? and why that name? I have TMJ and need to use heat and cold to help combat it. Any old one will do, but well I thought about having something a little more fun. I saw an opportunity to do something no one else does and just started crafting. I picked BooBooZoo because the first designs I ever made were Hannah the Hippo, Edward the Elephant, Frankie the Fish and Wille the Whale and well it looked like I was making a Zoo (plus I like things that rhyme)
#6 - where do you get your ideas? And what prompted you to make what you do? Alot of my ideas come from fabrics I see or from customers. If I see a cute fabric I always buy it then try to make a design that will work with it. I am a faricaholic it is kinda scary... I have it everywhere! Not all designs work for me. I have tried many that I just can't get right... still working on most and I know one day I will get the shapes perfected! Alot of time (like with my wrist wraps, and Tummy Betters) it comes from a customer needing something, they put an idea in my head and well away I go. I am not afraid of craft Fails! I have alot of them, but I don't stop till it looks good and is functional. I do save all the fails... who knows one day I may need them for a hall of fame."

I'm not sure how creative it is, but my idea is for a series of VERY manly back betters or migraine managers... in fabrics like blue/green tartan or a suiting type of pinstripe.

Wow it was sooooooo hard to narrow it down to one choice, but this is what I would want to win from BooBooZoo:
http://www.etsy.com/listing/55019784/backtummy-better-retro-style-brown-and
and then I'd probably still have to buy about half of the rest of the store! ;)

Here's a creative new idea for BooBooZoo - Make a "family set" of BooBoo items that all have the same theme - for example, I love the kitties. So make a Kitty boo boo bag, a kitty wrist wrap, a kitty migraine manager, a kitty back/stomach bag, and a kitty neck wrap and sell it as a set!! :)

My son would use the Frankie the Fish BooBoo Bag! It is so cute he would want it even when he didn't have a booboo!

I would like to see some feet warmers. I don't know exactly how that would be made. Like a sock or slipper form i guess. (my feet stay so cold in the winter!)

Paul the Puppy & Pete the Puppy are my faves:0)

Steph said...

new idea:
a lower back wrap with velcro so it is like a belt!

I long one that would fit along the lower back would be really nice! My mom had back surgery and had to ice it every two hours and the packs they gave her ever seemed to cover enough area so if there were something developed to fit across the whole lower back that would be cool plus it could probably double as a cover for around the neck and both shoulders!
