Our Local Cool Kids™ Family

This summer we have had the pleasure of working with an incredible local family in Stow, Ohio. Three of the children have varying levels of heat-sensitivity as  result of medical conditions. These active kids can't just stay in the AC and miss out on the fun of summertime, so we were happy to help them stay cool!

The youngest, B. is just three years old. This sweet little boy was the inspiration for our newest cooling product, the Cool Kids™ Toddler Stroller Seat. He has an IV line access in his chest and a feeding tube in his tummy, so at first we were concerned about the fit of our toddler cooling vest. It turned out to not be an issue at all and he loves his vest!

We just received an e-mail update from their mom, Amy, giving us an update on their summer:

"Here is a picture of all the kids wearing their Polar Products!!! My girls have used the neck wraps like crazy."

"B. has been doing so well. He is probably the best he has been his entire life here on this earth.
We have been using his cooling vest like crazy. I really think is has made a huge difference in him. It does not seem to bother his tubes. And it keeps him from sweating which has really helped keep the dressing to his IV line intact."

12-year-old C. says, "I know this will make me feel better during band camp!"

"C. also continues to use his vest like crazy. It is so easy for me to manage as well as him. We just fill up the cooler (which by the way is totally awesome and leak proof) from you with ice water (especially when we are at the lake) and we just recharge them in the cooler. My husband and I were talking about getting a timer to help us remember when to recharge the packs. Especially for B. because the packs are so little. But they are so lightweight and it doesn't seem to affect him or his balance at all."

Here is a picture of C. letting his big fish go.

"I am very happy with the stroller seat pad. I can image that a younger of more immobile child would really like it. It is totally what I have been searching for. We found that if we kept a blanket or a jacket over it when he was out of the stroller it stayed colder for much longer. He was very comfortable in his stroller with the pad in. He wasn't sweaty when we picked him up out of the stroller like he normally would have been."

"Here is a picture of B. loading up his water gun to go after the ducks. He is wearing his vest. But he also has his tube feed pump on over the vest (that is the clown fish on his back.) I think it's awesome he can wear his tube feed pump and life vest with his cooling vest on. That just makes it so functional for him."

"And here is a picture of him sitting in the highchair in the water. B. is not allowed to swim at all. Lake water is loaded with bacteria that can make him really sick because of his tubes. However, he is a kid and he wants to do what everyone else does. So we put on his cooling vest and put him in the highchair by the dock. He can get his feet wet and be part of the crowd with his siblings in the water and yet we can keep his tubes dry."

"We are so grateful for our Polar cooling garments. It has truly been a blessing. I have so many wonderful memories we have built this summer because my kids are more comfortable and I feel like I don't have to worry about them and how the heat is affecting them as much."
