The Shottles mini hot water bottle keyring isn't just a novelty product to hang your keys on. This keyring is actually a fully functional (albeit miniature) hot water bottle and offers instant heat upon activation of a metal switch. The liquid within the bottle reacts chemically and solidifies as it heats up. The bottle can be reused by removing it from its colourful cover and boiled in a pan of water for a few minutes until it softens. The effect of the hot water bottle lasts for upto 45 minutes.
The keyring has an attached label which reads 'Shottles' and then has the instructions for activation are given. There are also the hot water bottle and multicoloured cover attached also. For £5 the keyring seems expensive, but I have never come across a working hot water bottle on a keyring. The colourful design will appeal to most children and when they first have the responsibility of their own keys, this keyring could be useful to encourage them to look after them. For everyone this keyring is a quirky item, and if are walking to work in the cold it offers light relief to the elements. A fully functional hot water bottle, I would recommend it as a small gift.
Ok so did you ever have one of those magical things as a child which felt like plastic and which had a little silver disk in? Not sure no well if you did you had to click the silver disk and magically the liquid would become hard and warm. They were great I loved mine it was blue bear one!! It was great and so much safer than using a hot water bottle!
This keyring is just that except in a cute mini version. I came across this whilst browsing one night and it reminded me of my little blue bear, I wonder whatever happened to him anyway I had to have one.
They cost around £7 for keyring plus postage, quite abit for a keyring I know I know but its the novelty factor that got me again. The size of it is 10cm x 7cm x 1cm so quite small and it fits in its own snug little hot water bottle cover lovely. It works the same way as my little blue bear did flick the magic little metal switch inside and watch and feel it warm as the chemical reaction takes place, I know its a chemical reaction now I am older not just magic. It gives off heat for around 1 hour and you can reuse it. Once the heat has gone you simply boil the 'bottle' in a saucepan of hot water and watch the solidified liquid melt back. Its then good to use it again.
I love my novelty key ring especially on cold days it was especially good when I went to a bonfire display and my hands were freezing I simply clicked the magic button and held it between my hands and they were warm in seconds. The one I have is the rainbow one in the picture you can also chose from union jack, red heart on white background or black heart on red background.
I know it expensive but I love it 5 stars.
