While we grownups love our S’well and bkr bottles, there’s just something about a screw cap and a glass container that doesn’t say “four-year-old.” Enter: the Contigo Autospout Stainless Steel Water Bottle. With built-in straw and ice-cold insulation, it’s the new ‘it’ water bottle for kids.
We first heard of this gem when at least four PureWow parents were raving about it in an email thread, saying things like, “I live for the Contigo water bottle! It literally keeps water cold (with ice) all day,” and, “I second that—the Contigo water bottle is a game changer.” Who knew a simple drinking vessel could bring us so much joy?
For starters, this kid-friendly bottle holds 13 oz. of water without getting super heavy thanks to lightweight stainless steel. And the real kicker—it can keep water cold for up to 14 hours aka no less than eight playground meltdowns and an entire school day. But our favorite part? The fact that it’s dishwasher safe, because many others aren’t and lord knows we’ll have to wash this thing on the daily. The three pieces (screw top, built-in straw and steel body) can be easily disassembled for a thorough clean, but they won’t pop off in the middle of use. Oh, and we love the fact that it’s sustainable—see ya single-use, non-insulated plastic bottles.
We never thought a water bottle would be the talk of the parents’ group chat, but here we are—and our daily travels are so much better for it. We’ll keep our grownup water bottles for us and the kids can have their own—they’d insist on holding it themselves anyway, right?
