Review: Oxo Twist Top Water Bottle

Is it just us that seems to own every sippy cup out there, or is it a normal thing? Every time we open Little Man’s cupboard in the kitchen where we store his cups and bowls and plates at least one sippy cups jumps out at us. The reason for our deluge of cups? Finding one that works consistently and reliably is a nightmare. Who knew it could be so hard to create a cup that your child can drink from without spilling it, or chewing the straw off, or that is permanently open to the elements, or leaks in your handbag. Apparently its rocket science, but thankfully someone seems to have achieved the seemingly impossible. And about time too.
oxo tot twist top water bottle in aquaOxo Tot have created this, the Twist Top Water Bottle, seen here in Aqua. A simply designed bottle which is easy to hold for young children either by the indentation round the bottle or the loop on the lid. A decent length straw reaches right the way to the bottom so no juice or water gets wasted – the number we have that don’t do this is alarming – and a simple twist of the lid folds the straw away. This is both hygienic AND ensures the spill proof nature of the lid. Even with it open you can shake it upside down – as children tend to do – or knock it over – as Little Man does hourly – and nothing comes out. Not one drop.
I love this bottle as it does what it claims and it does what I need it to do. Little Man loves it because he can carry it round easily and it always dispenses his favourite juice. Even Daddy commented the other day that this was a good cup and wanted to know where we got it from and should we get a spare. For Daddy to notice and comment on something like a sippy cup must mean its pretty much brilliant.
The Twist Top Water Bottle from Oxo Tot is priced at £8 and is available in Aqua, Green and Raspberry. It has a capacity of 300ml and is dishwasher friendly – always a bonus for us.
