An ideal stocking filler for children or younger siblings this Christmas, The Hot Water Bottle Shops’ Kuddli Friends range merges the time-tested comfort of the hot water bottle with fun and playful animal characters that are sure to be a hit with children up and down the country.
Five cute characters make up the ‘Kuddli Friends’ gang; Benny Bear, Eddie Elephant, Rori Lion, Rudi Robin and Harper Hedgehog. Benny, Eddie and Rori belong to the ‘Jungle Friends’ collection and Rudi and Harper the ‘Woodland Friends’ collection, although this makes no difference to the overall quality of the products. The variation in characters is a welcome plus as the water bottles essentially double up as soft toys thanks to the detail and quality of their design, meaning that children at sleepovers can bring their Kuddli Friends to each other’s houses and bring the gang together. Kids are sure to like one if not multiple animals in the collections, and having mixture of both bigger, jungle animals and smaller woodland ones gives younger ones a choice and a chance to pick their favourite.
A 750ml capacity is standard for all the Kuddli Friends, making them ideal for smaller bodies, and the luxuriously soft acrylic fur/polyester lining make them perfect to cuddle with. All of the animals are the same size and weight too; 50cm and tall and 600g respectively. This child-size makes them perfect for children to share the bed with and easy to move away from them should they become too hot, and all Kuddli Friends are certified British Standard:1970:2012. Another big plus with Kuddli Friends is that even though they look soft and cuddly, their hardy interior bottles come with a two-year guarantee against manufacturing defects only. This guarantees a quality product inside out, both of which are easily cleaned; a simple wipe will clean the bottle itself and the animal exterior can be hand-washed in a mild detergent. The hot water bottle itself is easily removable thanks to an easily located Velcro strap, and all of the Kuddli Friends can be used as a pyjama case too thanks to their versatile design.
Kuddli Friends are beautifully presented, too. Each animal comes wrapped in decorative tissue paper (although this may not be noticed by children tearing off wrapping paper) with filling instructions attached and a care, safety and quality leaflet to be kept for future reference. At a more than reasonable price of £24.99, Kuddli Friends are the perfect present to both keep your children entertained when awake and warm when asleep this Christmas time. Why not browse Kuddli Friends characters for yourself and pick your child out their favourite?
