At first I didn't know how to begin this post. I was given (free of charge) a SlapKooler to review, via Tomoson. As you will see, that in no way influenced my opinion of the product.
The purpose of the SlapKooler is to be a promotional item. You give them out free or cheap to spread the word about your company/event/cause. The item itself is a combination drink insulator/slap bracelet.
Unfortunately, there is a big problem with this product. It smells exactly like Les Schwab (for those of you not in the northwest, Les Schwab is a tire store that tries -and fails- to cover the scent of tires with the free popcorn they have for while you wait), which is not really that appealing when it is wrapped around your beverage. It is of good quality for a promotional item, and really a lot more fun and useful than a pencil.
BUT, there is one use that the makers have probably never thought of. Little Guy liked mine (it is camouflage after all) and he asked me to put it on his arm. Then he pulled his shirt down over it and said he was the Hulk. SO, it might make an oddly scented beverage accessory, it makes an excellent pretend muscle for a 2.5 year old.
It also would be something good to give to a fidgety kids (that is not around OTHER kids to slap it on their wrists) in church or during a movie to give them something quite to play around with.
I really want to give ALL the products I review stellar ratings, but at the same time, it is really, really important that I am honest, both because God requires it of me, and therefore I value it, and because what good are my reviews to anyone if they know they can't trust them?
