Dreamland Heatpod Review & Competition

As some of you may already know I had a accident at work in July and ruptured a disc in my back, now I have experienced lots of pain but this was excruciating, debilitating and very restricting to what I could do.  When I was contacted to see if I would like to review the new Heatpod from Dreamland I did not hesitate, as warmth was the one thing that really did help.


The Heatpod is a modern alternative to a hot water bottle that you plug in and charge up, meaning you can carry it around with you, some of the features are below:
  • Heats up in 5 minutes
  • Lasts over 2 hours
  • Has a safety thermostat
  • Once it reaches the required temperature in switches off
  • Removable cover that is washable
  • Costs less than a penny to charge  (cheaper than boiling the kettle)
I love my Heatpod, I take it in the car, when I go and watch my daughter horse riding and if we go out for the day, it really as been a useful item to have and helps to provide some relief from the pain.  I must say that my daughter would love to claim it as her own but for the time being my back has priority.  These would make a great gift for an elderly relative as they wouldn't have to pour hot water in to their bottle with shaky hands.

If you would like to win a Heatpod then the kind folks over at Dreamland have provided me with one to giveaway.  Please complete the rafflecopter form below and good luck.
