Believe it or not, I am not getting compensated for this post. But after getting so many comments about how cool the following item is, I decided it was my duty to let all moms know about this great find!! ;-)
Ever since having kids, I have been on a mission to find portable, drink bottles that kept drinks cold and didn't leak. I tried sippy cups that advertised "insulated and non-leaking", I tried water bottles that perspired everywhere and didn't stay cool, I tried just freezing juice boxes and taking them with us.
I was frustrated because I couldn't find anything that worked and I was spending a lot of extra money on juice boxes (and consuming a lot of waste). That is when I came across these beauties at Target! I loved the fact that they were insulated (the sticker on them advertised 12 hours of cold) and "leak proof". I was skeptical. But in desperation I bought each boy one. Evan wanted the Cars one and he insisted that Carter wanted the Toy Story one - there were only 2 to choose from :-)! I wanted them to have different ones so that I wouldn't have to worry who's was who's.
Let me just tell you, I have had these now for about 6 weeks. And I have yet to have them spill, leak or perspire!! And the water stays cold - if I put ice cubes with cold filtered water from the refrigerator in them, the ice cubes stay frozen for the afternoon!! HOLLA!
I take these everywhere we go. I fill them up with water and hit the road. I don't need to worry about juice boxes, perspiration or leaking!
They are the Thermos brand and cost about $12.99 a piece at Target. Which they really paid for themselves after a couple of weeks of not having to buy juice boxes!! And they are fairly easy to clean - I have a miniature bottle scrubber, that came with the Dr.Browns bottles, which I use to clean the straw. Or I just throw the straw in the dishwasher and wash the thermos by hand!
If you are busy running with the kids during the summer, I would highly recommend getting these!
