AND THE WINNER IS:
#353 - JOEY!
Do you have children who play winter sports? Do you ski? Go for long walks in the winter? How do you stay warm?
You've heard of Zippo, everyone has probably had one of their lighters at one time or another. But did you know they also have Hand Warmers. When I was contacted by Zippo in regards to hosting a review/giveaway for their new Hand Warmer - Luke was thrilled!! He'd been eying them in one of his favorite stores where he purchases all his camping gear. So I returned the email and received the Hand Warmer in the mail a few weeks later, along with some lighter fluid.
Unfortunately Luke wasn't home the week it came, so Brad & I tried it out first. There are really great instructions. We thought we had put enough lighter fluid in it the first day, but apparently not. The instructions said it would stay warm for 12 hours - it only last 1.5 hours. So the next day we added a little more fuel, maybe a little too much :) There isn't supposed to be any flame, but we did have a bit, so you do have to be careful about how much fuel you put into the warmer. This time it stayed warm from 34 hours!!
The instructions also say that it should be kept in the little bag that is provided, because it will get hot enough to burn you. They are right! It get's amazingly hot. Luke walks to school 1.5 miles every day and tries not to use the bus until it's -30 degrees. One suggestion is to put a string on the bag so you can hang it around your neck and keep your body warm under jackets - this will be perfect for Luke!
I would definitely recommend this product to everyone. But also will say - THIS IS NOT FOR CHILDREN!! If you have a child that would like to use it to stay warm - that is fine. But I would strongly suggest that an adult fill the warmer and light it. It's not a toy!
The lighter can be purchased on the Zippo Web Site for $19.95 or you could enter to win one here.
