Pros:Fun cold pack for "owie" relief

Cons:Doesn't get that cold; Temptation to play with it is too strong

The Bottom Line: In a nutshell, the Disney Finding Nemo Cold Pack is cute, flexible and easy to break.


When someone has an "ouchie" in our house, we usually use the ice packs that came with our super awesome breast pump; however, the kids wanted one that was more "fun" when they saw the Princess Cold Pack while in line at Target. Priced in the two to three dollar range, I agreed. Then I looked at the little dude and realized that I would ultimately need a gender neutral ice pack, so I grabbed the Disney Finding Nemo Cold Pack as well.

The Finding Nemo Cold Pack is actually pretty cute. About four inches wide, three inches high and maximum half-inch thick, this looks like a vinyl front-on profile of the world's most popular clownfish filled with a squishy blue gel. While I do not know exactly what is in that blue gel, the manufacturer claims it is non-toxic, which is a good thing, for reasons that will be revealed soon.

Using the Finding Nemo Cold Pack is pretty straight-forward: you put it in the freezer and then take it out when someone gets an "owie" and needs some cold relief (or when they see that someone else had an "owie" and has cold relief). This is a really nice ice pack for those "ouchies" in odd places, such as knees, elbows or the sides of fingers, because it is flexible and can bend around these areas.

Other than that convenience, I was really not a fan of our Finding Nemo Cold Pack for a couple of reasons. For one thing, it doesn't stay cold for very long once it's out of the freezer. You're looking at about a half hour of chilliness here.

Also, it is so appealing to play with a flexible chilly Nemo that my three year old liked to keep it around after an owie. In fact, she played with it for so long that I sometimes forgot that Nemo was out of the freezer, and after about two months, I encountered a "popped open" Nemo, with the blue gel oozing out of it. Considering that she never bit on it or had access to sharp objects, I'm not quite sure how the explosion happened.

If you would like a cute cold pack for a child who still enjoys Nemo and understands that this is not a toy, the Disney Finding Nemo Cold Pack will serve you well for a short-term chill. If your child is still in the three to four year old range and will treat it like a toy, I wouldn't go with this one. Considering that most Nemo fans are in that age range, I can't give this an overall "yes" recommendation.
