The Phoenix heatwave is our of control! Today I had the opportunity to show the viewers of 3TV’s Your Life A to Z four innovative products that are helping keep Valley kids cooler during this extreme summer heat.
As a mom, I know firsthand that being hot – especially in cars – can have dangerous side effects and often leaves kids feeling very grumpy. In attempt to have a safe and happy summer, these products may become your summer must-haves.
Car Seat Coolers: $20
Gel Cooler Packs: $5 (4-5 recommended per cooler. You can also but these separately from places like Walmart and the Dollar Store.)
Cool on the Go® is lightweight and features a compact design that leaves you hands free as you're working or playing outside in the heat.
The Cool on the Go® fan with LED lights has a stroller feature that easily clips on to any stroller or baby seat to help keep the child cool. The lanyard can be used to direct air towards the face and neck for hands-free use. The belt loop feature attaches the fan around the waist. Airflow can then be directed into the shirt cooling the upper body area. The tabletop feature allows you to set the fan on any table, desktop or flat surface. The clip can be utilized to connect the Cool on the Go® Fan to any car sun visor. The shoulder strap feature perfectly attaches the fan to any purse, backpack or shoulder bag strap. The bright LED lights illuminates nicely and can be used as a safety device to be seen at night. Consumers can choose from a variety of colors. Cool on the Go® provides up to 4 hours of hands free cooling on continuous use on high speed. Battery life may vary depending on the speed and uses.
The Standard Unit: $29.99
The Recharge Unit: $49.99
The Gooseneck Mount: $14.99
Car Seat Liner: $39.99
Stroller Liner: $44.99
Designed by a Valley dad, The Noggle is the first child comfort system of its kind and the ultimate solution for controlling air temperature in your car's backseat to make it comfortable for all passengers, especially children. Maintaining a comfortable temperature in your car's backseat during the hot days of summer and winter's extreme cold is next to impossible. The Noggle prevents sweaty, uncomfortable, and potentially dangerous car rides for children in the summer and keeps kids warmer and more comfortable during the winter months.
The Noggle ranges from $40 - $50.
