Whether you go for insulated stainless steel or non-toxic plastic, kids’ drink bottles encourage little ones to stay hydrated with water throughout the day, setting healthy habits from a young age.

Portable with a narrow spout, kids’ drink bottles are made from food-grade stainless steel or BPA-free plastics, they’re extra durable, easy to clean and a cinch for children to carry with them out to the playground, park or playdate.

If you’ve ever had one leak through a backpack, or crack within a week, you’ll know that not all water bottles are created equal. And when a good one is unearthed, it’s like discovering gold.

Tips for buying a kids’ drink bottle

  • Is it easy to clean or can it go in the dishwasher?
  • Is it easy to get replacement lid and parts?
  • Will it leak, or the lid pop off, if squashed/trodden on?
  • Do all the parts come apart for easy cleaning?
  • Is it insulated for hot and cold drinks? Or just cold?
  • Will condensation form on the outside (looking at you, wet bag)?
