Geleeo Cooling Gel Stroller Pads {Review & Giveaway}

*Mommys Craft Obsession received two complimentary Geleeo stroller pads for review in exchange for my honest thoughts and opinions*

"Oh, I don't know why, but I've always loved the idea of summer, and sun, and all things hot."

"Really? I guess you don't have much experience with heat."

"Nope"

If you have a Disney fanatic in your home chances are you've heard that correspondence between our dear friends Olaf and Kristoff more than once, am I right?

If you're like Olaf and you love the idea of summer and heat (but also want to keep your children cool!), then this product is for you!



Geleeo was designed by a mom who was ready for her daughter to be cooler while in her stroller. Annoyed with the lack of cooling options available and the impracticality of ice pads in in her daughters stroller, she sought out to create a product that would be practical and convenient for moms on the go. After years of research, she discovered a proprietary cooling gel that required no refrigeration and she was determined to create a stroller pad that would keep her daughter, and children all over the world, cooler while in their strollers.

Geleeo is a ground breaking new product that has arrived just in time for summer! This revolutionary stroller pad keeps your child cooler without the need of refrigeration of the product thanks to a hydrogel inside the pad that stays cooler than its surrounding environment. Geleeo is a reusable pad that will keep your child cooler on a daily basis, so whether you're out for your daily stroller, visiting the local zoo, or taking a family vacation, Geleeo will make sure your little one always has a cool body temperature while they're in their stroller!


What makes Geleeo work is a proprietary hydrophilic cooling gel located inside of the stroller pad. That particular type of hydrogel is certified safe to use, even if it for some reason comes in direct contact with skin. It consists of 38% water and cools your child's body with the same principle as water - lower the body temperature by absorbing and releasing heat. The hydrogel combined with other components work together to create a consistent gel texture and enhance the power and speed of cooling your child. The Geleeo remains a few degrees cooler than the temperature of the air around it and once it comes into contact with the heat of your child, it starts transferring the heat away from them immediately until it reaches the same temperature as their body. What is really wonderful about the Geleeo is that it constantly absorbs and releases heat so whether your child is in their stroller for a few minutes, or a couple of hours, they will stay consistently cooler than they would without the Geleeo pad!


When you physically touch the Geleeo, it feels nice and cool to the touch, almost as though it has just come out of the refrigerator without the icy "sting" to it. The Geleeo is designed to fit all toddler strollers and has designated slots to allow for the 5 point harness straps on your stroller. I really appreciated that Geleeo accounted for all three height levels of the shoulder straps to accommodate small infants to toddlers!

The Geleeo Cooling Gel Stroller Pad is available in two colors - blue and pink, and is reversible to a light gray! I really love the fact that they made the stroller pad reversible in color, I tend to be a little crazy when it comes to matching and with thanks to this attention to detail I can use the gray color with my double stroller (which is several shades of gray, and yellow) and I can also use the blue in our single strollers!


Little Mister got to be the first tester for our Geleeo Cooling Gel Stroller Pad and although he was less than thrilled to be in his stroller at first, he was a very happy boy when we went on our walk and he stayed consistently cool. Living in Arizona, where the weather is already 105+ degrees, it's' great to have a product that will keep him comfortable even when he has to sit in his stroller for a period of time. 


Whether you have one child or two, the Geleeo Cooling Pad Stroller pad really does keep your little ones body temperature regulated while they are seated in their stroller and in the times that I have used it with Little Mister, he seems to be more comfortable and content while we're out and about. I strongly feel that the Geleeo is to thank for that!


Overall I was extremely impressed with the Geleeo, I love that it actually works to keep my little guy cooler and it's an even bigger bonus that it's reversible to offer two different colors! My only dislike with the product is that due to the texture of the pad, it seems to slide around on the seat of the stroller. I found myself having to hold it while Little Mister climbed into his seat and I found myself adjusting it each time before Little Mister used it. However, this small dislike wouldn't stop me from recommending it to friends, family, and you lovely readers because this product really does keep your child cooler and is perfect for use during the summertime!

  15. My favorite feature is that the manufacturer claims the pad does not require refrigeration. On their website, however, it is stated that over 86 degrees F it is *recommended* to refrigerate the product prior to use. I guess because I live so far North I would never need to worry about this. I hope that it really works without refrigeration despite the manufacturer's recommendations to the opposite in high 80 degree weather.

    1. We used ours the other day in 109 degree weather and refrigeration was not needed. My assumption would be that it would be recommended IF you plan on using several times a day in extreme heat, but again we had no problems on our walk to the pool in 109 degree weather.

  16. The Geleeo constantly absorbs and releases heat so whether your child is in their stroller for a few minutes, or a couple of hours, they will stay consistently cooler than they would without the Geleeo pad!
    That is great for long days out in the heat!

  19. I love that it keeps the kid cool but yet needs no refrigeration. That makes it perfect for traveling.

  20. One of the care recommendations is prior to storage, please lay flat to allow excess heat to release from the pad.

  21. I like that once it's in contact with skin, heat transfer starts immediately. As long as you're in touch with the pad, it would keep dissipating heat from you until it reaches the same temperature as your body. Really wish we had these when we were little lol

  22. I love that this product doesnt have to be refrigerated! This is perfect for Arizona summers when its 115 degrees when we are out shopping. ❤

  23. Outdoor temperature over 30°C (86°F): while not required, 30 to 60 minutes refrigeration prior to outdoor use is recommended in order to extend the effectiveness. Do not refrigerate for more than 2 hours.

  24. we live in the desert so anything to keep my little guy cooler in his stroller is a win win for us. i like that it's easy to use and it's universal so it can fit a bob or an umbrella stroller.

  25. This will be perfect for living in south Texas. I like that it will start working immediately and that all I have to do it put it in the stroller. I've had to wet towels and lay them in my babies stroller and that's just a mess.

  30. The stroller pad may get hot if it is left in a high temperature environment, such as in a vehicle during summer, so you should check its temperature with your hand before placing a child in a stroller.

  31. I like that the hydrogel is safe if it leaks, and how is is not a shocking feeling of cold, it slowly lowers the body temperature.

  32. I love the idea that it will keep your child cool in their strollers with no refrigeration needed.

  33. One of the product care recommendations is to not leave it out in high temperature environments because it may get hot, and also to wipe it clean as it is not machine washable.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Product Care Recommendation: •To prolong the product’s life, try to avoid direct sun exposure when possible.

  35. I actually already bought one Geleeo for my son, who has a rare disease that is made worse by extreme temperatures. Since we live in South Florida, it's vital that we have this type of solution if we wnat to be outside at all from April through September. I'd love to have a second one for his twin sister because, even though she doesn't have the same condition, it's still way hot here and I'd love to make her more comfy. :)

  36. "Keep away from sharp objects to avoid rips and tears." Well, yeah!

  37. I love that it keeps your child cool - we have so many triple digit temp days that it will be awesome to have for my grandson. :)

  38. This product is simply brilliant! Now I only wish this mom would come up with one fitted for car seats as well!! We live in a hot climate, and my son especially gets very hot easily when in his stroller (and car seat). I would LOVE to have one of these for those long days at the beach, or wherever our day takes us!
