These sturdy stainless steel water bottles keep 12 ounces of liquid cool for up to 12 hours. With a pop up lid and straw, they make it easy for kids to stay hydrated. The angled bottom of the straw means they can get every last drop. The lid snaps shut when closed, and stays locked to keep the straw clean. You can get them in bright solid colors, or the pattern your child likes best. With everything from commercial favorites like Star Wars, Hello Kitty, Minnie Mouse, and Pokemon, to whimsical designs like mermaids, unicorns, and vehicles, there a design for every taste.
We’ve had our Thermos water bottles for all three kids for years. They use them every day, and they’ve survived being dropped, thrown, and much more without any dents or other signs of wear and tear. They go on the top rack of the dishwasher, and the wide mouth not only means they get clean, but also make them easy to fill. With the lid closed and the straw properly installed, they never leak or even sweat on the outside, making them great for tossing in backpacks with papers, books, and other items sensitive to moisture. (Because this water bottle has a straw, I would not recommend using it on airplanes.)
If you want a solid easy care water bottle for your kids that will last longer than one season, consider getting a Thermos Funtainer.
