Thermos FUNtainer

Pin It I almost always have a water bottle with me and I try and keep beverages readily available for my kids- especially during hot summer days. We've had a dreadful time finding decent beverage containers that work for the kids though. There is always something wrong with them- they leak, the straw doesn't work etc. etc. etc.. But we have found the solution to all of our container issues- seriously. I am completely in love with the Thermos FUNtainer straw bottles!!





Here is some information on the FUNtainers from ThermosBrand.ca :
  • TherMax® double wall vacuum insulation for maximum temperature retention
  • Kid-proof design: unbreakable stainless steel interior and exterior withstands daily wear and tear
  • Hygienic push button lid with pop-up straw
  • Perfect for keeping drinks cold and kids cool and refreshed!
  • Exterior stays condensation free.
  • Sweat-proof design won’t leave water rings.
  • Fun designs appeal to kids!
  • Non-slip, scratch-resistant base.




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 found it hard to believe so I tried it again. And again. And again. And then I did the ultimate test- I put 2 ice cubes and milk into Olivia's FUNtainer and let her take it to bed with her. She kept the bottle wrapped in a blanket between her and the wall on a hot summer night for almost 12 full hours. When she got up in the morning she had consumed about half the milk and those ice cubes were STILL FROZEN. I am 100% serious. These bottles work.


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.




I will certainly be getting myself the grown-up version (like this pretty pink one ---->) as soon as I can find one... apparently my town either doesn't carry them or is entirely sold out already. I found a few of the kid ones but nothing larger. This is where living in a teeny tiny town sucks.





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!!
