The Ferris Wheels Microwaveable Heat Pack Review

You have a chance to win this awesome heat pack in the Mother's Day Gift Ideas Giveaway which is now open for entries!

When I was growing up we always had a hot/cold pack laying around ready to make any aches and pains go away. My mom is a huge fan of them and I've probably bought her more than a few over the past several Mother's Days. My sister always suffered from bad cramps every month and loved to heat one up and lay it across her belly.

When I got the opportunity to review a neck and shoulder heat pack from The Ferris Wheels I was so excited! I've never purchased one for myself, and hadn't used one since I left home years ago!

When my heat pack came in the mail I knew right away it was good quality. The fabric, the stitching, and the many compartments, all told me that a lot of effort had gone into making it. It's thick and heavy and feels fabulous wrapped around the shoulders!

The wrap comes with instructions to help you get a perfect fit and the most benefit. I see heat packs sold in the mall all the time but I've never seen one quite like this. It's much wider, so it covers a lot more of the shoulders, while still wrapping tightly around the neck. The wraps are filled with flaxseed and rice for maximum heat retention, but can also be put in the freezer and used as a cold pack.

I heated it up for Mr. Eight and let him try it out. Even after it had cooled down he didn't want to take it off, the weight is just so nice! I had originally planned on giving it to my mom for Mother's Day when she comes to visit this year, but now I'm not so sure.. ;)

  1. I love my heat packs, made in the USA. I know that the seeds, herbs and material are quality and not contaminated with who knows what.
