After two successful Ozeri reviews (their digital kitchen scales and the Kandle Flex booklight for Kindle), Family Howe were very generously asked to review a third Ozeri product. This time, a Turtlemeter: a bath thermometer that's also a bath toy.
Tristan and Scarlett were very pleased with their new bath toy, and it's great that it also doubles as a bath thermometer. They loved watching the turtle glow blue, then green (and red if it gets too hot) whilst the bath fills up, and enjoyed enthusiastically shouting out when the turtle glowed green.
The three-colour light system is a fantastic feature. It glows blue if the bath water is too cold, glows green at the perfect bath temperature, and red when too hot. A brilliant visual alarm system.
As well as the three-colour light system, the thermometer reads the bath water temperature in Fahrenheit. I'm reasonably unfamiliar with Fahrenheit, but after several baths, I now easily remember the perfect bath water temperature is between 95 and 102.2 Fahrenheit when the turtle glows green.
There's no on/off switch as it automatically switches on when the turtle lands in the bath water. And at the end of the bath, a quick swipe of the bottom (where the three sensors are) with a towel will ensure it's switched off.
As with the other Ozeri products I've reviewed, the Turtlemeter is ready to be used straight out of the box! Even the packaging is simple - just pull the outer plastic apart, and voila.
The Turtlemeter is a great safety product. Parents are given the confidence to know their baby's bath is at a safe and comfortable temperature (but please do double check by submerging your hand and forearm into the bathwater before placing your child into the bath).
This product would be fantastic included in a baby shower or new baby gift hamper.
