I have received a turtlemeter free from Ozeri to review. I know you’re wondering what is a turtlemeter. No it is not a measuring device to check the size of turtles, although maybe I could have done with something like that many years ago on holiday. I visited a sea turtle conservation project where you get to carry the tiny turtles, only a few days old, to the edge of the ocean to release them into the wild, plus hold the heavy giant turtles.
Let me tell you that a turtlemeter is a floating bath toy which is also a thermometer. The temperature displays in red if the water is too hot, above 39 deg C.
And it displays in blue, if the water is too cold, below 35 deg C.
However if the water is an ideal temperature, between 35 to 39 deg C, then it displays in green. Son2 likes to run his own bath now and found this fascinating. He was experimenting with different temperature ranges, checking under the taps and mixing the water round. We discovered that he had actually previously been having quite cold baths in the blue zone, so now he is going to bath himself at a much more optimum temperature. He discovered that although it floats, he could submerge it fully under the water. We discussed how it worked safely, when usually water and electricity don’t mix.
This is a great educational bath toy. And it is also an ideal gadget for a baby’s bath, although I do recommend that you still do the elbow test and constantly supervise a baby or very young child’s bath.
It has an easy-to-read LCD screen which regularly updates as it is checking the water temperature every second. It is sensor activated with no buttons or switches. You are recommended to fully dry it after the bath, to preserve battery life.
The turtlemeter is currently retailing on Amazon for £14.95. It comes with 3 AAA batteries already installed and a year’s warranty. A great product in my opinion. Ideal as a Christmas stocking gift.
I’d love to hear what is on your Christmas wish list.
