Modern Mama Spotlight: Warm Buddy Company

Need some last-minute gift ideas for this holiday season? Look no further than Warm Buddy Company, a North Vancouver based company creating & selling an extensive line of rejuvenating heat therapy products.

WarmBuddyLogo (2)Products include aromatherapy eye pillows & sleep masks, anti-stress body wraps & blankets, ultra spa robes, warming socks & slippers, and adorable warm-up plush animals for kids, including bears, puppies, sheep, penguins, kittens, leopards & more!



Karen McKee is the president of Warm Buddy Company. Her background as a Registered Nurse combined with her interest in alternative therapies, herbal medicine & aromatherapy, led to studies in India at a natural healing hospital. She noted the hospital’s application of herbal preparations & heat therapy to provide comfort & relief for many conditions. Upon her return to Canada, Karen discovered a heat wrap that was microwaveable & loved using it. An idea was born.

Originally, Warm Buddy products were aimed at the medical market & were widely used by medical practitioners & massage therapists in treatments.

Warm Buddy warm-up plush animals are now a huge comfort to sick children & have been used in children’s cancer wards, as well as helping to soothe & relieve aches, pains & stress in the elderly. Warm Buddy warm-up plush animals have a well established safety record & have recently won the PTPA Media award for excellence in parenting products!

I had the pleasure of meeting Karen yesterday and testing out a variety of her wonderful products. I was struck by her use of silky soft chenille fabrics for her aromatherapy wraps, and my toddler absolutely loves her new warm-up penguin. I can’t wait until she sees her adorable Warm Buddy bear-paw mittens on Christmas morning!
