OREGON, Ohio -- One father created a product to "Light It Up BLUE" for Autism Awareness Month
. Their goal was to design a profitable product that could help carry this message to the masses. To do this they created a product that would both light it blue and that people would actually want to own. The inventors said, “Once we stumbled upon the combination of a clear plastic party cooler
and blue LED lights, we knew we had the perfect product for our cause.” They hope that this product will become this summer’s trendy product and work its way into many American households. Later, when changing batteries, the purchaser will see the imprinted autism logo and realize that they too can be a part of “Light It Up Blue.” The expectation is that the social nature of this product will help spread this message to a large portion of the population. They anticipate that the cooler will get people talking about their experiences and through the sharing of information it will help advance the autism community.
The ICE Block Cooler actually has three versions of this portable beer cooler
. In addition to their main product they make a version that is for wine and bottles. This wine cooler ice bucket
is just like the original version yet the can holders have been cut out to make room for even larger bottles. The wine cooler ice bucket version does not include gel and is chilled by adding actual ice. The third version is a test tube shot holder. This test tube shot carrier can be used by clubs or at private parties to add some pop to any event. This version is not filled with gel so that it remain light weight for servers to carry around, but still includes the awesome blue glow to get everyone's attention.
The Ice Block is one of those perfect gifts for boyfriends (http://www.iceblockcooler.com/
, husbands, or any man in your life. It keeps drinks colder than ice for up to 10 hours and showcases a powerful blue glow. Turn on the LED lights and the user becomes the life of the party.Photos:
