These bottles are brilliant. They claim to keep beverages cold for up to 12 hours and honestly I doubted it.... but not anymore! I have fully tested our FUNtainer straw bottles and I am truly amazed. In the morning I filled the containers with 2 ice cubes and a beverage then I left them sitting on the kitchen table. All day. At suppertime the beverages were gone but those two ice cubes were STILL FROZEN sitting in the bottom of the containers.
I fully intend to send milk with the kids to school in these bottles every day instead of sending milk money with them from now on. The kids love the designs on the outside- Aiden has Bakugan, Owen has Spiderman, and Olivia has Disney Princesses. Perfect.
I really can't say enough good about the FUNtainers. They are the absolute perfect size for the kids. I admit I tried one myself for a day and it was a bit small for me but they do come in larger sizes for adults. I spent the day amazed at how cold my water stayed and not even a drop of condensation appeared on the outside of the bottle! YAY! I really hate condensation.
We did have one small problem with Olivia's FUNtainer... it started to leak a bit but only after Owen threw it across the room. Seriously, he threw it across the living room... I have no idea why. Personally I am impressed that it didn't break completely because it crashed hard. We were able to fix it easily in seconds and it works fine now. The bottle itself wasn't damaged in the least.
Thanks so much to Thermos Brand Canada for sending me these fabulous FUNtainers to try out!!
