It’s not long now until school goes back and your kids may already be back at childcare or kinder. Here are some of my drink bottle options that are not only kid friendly but also super cute.
First up are the BPA free water bottles from Camelbak (above). Featuring an easy to use push button that pops up the durable drinking straw, these no-leak 400ml bottles are also phthalate free and made from ‘unbreakable’ Tritan plastic. You can get them from Shop Naturally.
Next are these very funky 18/8 stainless steel 350ml or 500ml BPA free water bottles from Australian company ecococoon (above). They have an innovative double walled design which deals with condensation and a unique no-leak cap/lid system that eliminates the need for straws or sippers. Check out their website for their interesting back story and other water bottle and cup products. You can purchase both the kid and adult versions direct from ecococoon.
These attractive 350ml plastic and 500ml stainless steel sports bottles from Fuel (above) will look great on the playground. The plastic bottles are made from BPA free Eastman Tritan material that can withstand the rough and tumble of childhood and they’re dishwasher safe. The plastic version is available at Bambini Pronto and you can contact them to see if they can get the stainless steel version in for you or you can order it from UK site The Character Place.
Trusted brand Thermos now produces a range of modern products including these vacuum insulated Funtainer kids’ 355ml drink bottles (above). The easy push button system is great for little ones (my 16mth old has no trouble at all) and the straw is really sturdy. They keep drinks cold for up to 12 hours and you can get replacement lids and straws if you ever need them. You can purchase the range at Shop Naturally.
These hip stainless steel H2onya drink bottles from Australian company onya (above) are durable, safe and ergonomic. The 350ml range comes with either a sippy lid or a teat and the 500ml range has a BPA free no-leak pull top but you can also choose from other lids. Made from food grade 304 stainless steel they don’t leach or retain flavours and they have a wide mouth which makes it easier to fill with thicker drinks. You can pick these bottles up from one of my favourite online stores, itty bitty greenie.
Last, but certainly not least, are these gorgeous stainless steel bottles from One Bottle (above). One Bottle is another Australian company doing their thing for the environment and their simple, classic design aesthetic translates well onto these attractive bottles. They are BPA free and coated in non toxic paint and feature both a sports pop top and carabiner attachment for easy carrying. You can get them from Kindred Gifts.
So there you have it, a few choices for you when it comes to finding a new drink bottle or sports bottle for back to school this year. There are so many to choose from you may even snap up a couple for the kids plus a few for yourself!
