I have been a fan of OXO Tot's products ever since discovering them when he was a baby. We reviewed some products from the Feeding Range, the Snacking Range and the Bath Range and were impressed with their simple, yet thoughtful designs and toddler friendly features. Now he is older, his needs have obviously changed, so I was pleased to see OXO Tot also have products suitable for kids who are a little bit more grown up. Freddy has just been sent an OXO Tot's Water Bottle to try out. As Freddy is about to start school in September, one item on our list of things we need was a good drinking bottle so he can stay hydrated during the day.
The twist top water bottle has a number of clever design features to make life that little bit easier including a secure lid that avoids spills when not in use. A simple twist of the non-slip lid makes a soft straw pop up, while another twist closes the lid again keeping the straw clean and germ free.
The large opening makes the bottle easy to fill and also to wash-up, while the non-slip carrying loop makes it easy to carry. The shaped bottle provides good grip for small hands which can hold the bottle securely.
It is perfect for juice, milk or water and easy for a child to manage, ensuring no spills or mess. Freddy really liked the novelty of the flip up straw and enjoyed drinking from it. Anything that encourages him to get into the habit of drinking is great. It has overtaken his sports bottle as his drinking vessel of choice!
I like that it is so easy to keep clean because of the wide neck, and that it won't cause spills in his school bag! It is also an ideal cup for travelling or taking out and about, as you can do up the lid and throw it in a bag confident that it won't leak and knowing the straw will stay fresh and clean.
