Friday Competiton: Win a pair of Swiggies !

Swiggies is hailed as ‘the new water bottle for the 21st Century.’ 


Swiggies are  funky little water bottles that you strap to your wrist to keep your hands free. It encourages more drinking and enables you to take a drink at anytime.

I was sent some to try out and you can take it from me,  little kids love them and those I polled thought  they were ‘fun’ ‘funny”cool’ and ‘like a ‘Ben 10 watch (well they said omantaruix but I can ‘t spell that!)

Swiggies are approved by Child Safe International as a safe, GREEN, BPA-free product. Each Swiggies holds 200ml (150ml for children) of water or drink of your choice. We tried them out at the park and they went down a treat (though so much fun it was to drink out of them we were constantly doing troilet trips!) One mum joked little wine in a swiggie might be fun  for mums to have at the park!!

Swiggies were originally developed for runners but are great for biking, tennis, the park, car journeys, long walks or just a bit of fun  I love this quirky fun product and think it would make a stellar Christmas gift for the kid who has everything.

Swiggies are made of the safest FDA approved, food grade, BPA-free plastic. They have been tested under the strictest standards. Swiggies are freezable and also dishwasher safe.

They cost £9.95 but will  absolutely save you a fortune in juices as you are out and about!

    I’d give the Swiggies to my friends Lisa and Mandy, as both of them have left toddler cups at my house recently…. I guess if these are strapped to Daisy & Charlie’s wrists, they won’t lose them so easily! 🙂

    Following your blog – tweeted as @Bobbity666. I would use the Swiggies in the car to avoid spills and anytime my child is out and about – what a fantastic idea x

    I’d use these for the walk home from Nursery. I always take daughter a snack and a drink when I collect her as she gets really hungry and thirsty from all that playing. This would be great – no stopping to pick up dropped cups on the way home!

    I would use these – EVERYWHERE out of the house, park, friends house, playgroups, shopping! We have trouble getting our toddler to drink enough throughout the day so these would be great to encourage it as they are fun as well as practical! We also have a slight tendency to leave cups at places, so the swiggies have the added bonus of making this less likely!!

    What an excellent idea these Swiggies bottles are! It would be perfect for family outings to the zoo or Alton Towers. The number of beakers we have lost over the years from our children leaving them behind! We’ve then had to struggle to provide a suitable drinking vessel for our toddlers, usually resulting in spillages!! This seems a perfect solution!! Genius!!

    I would probably use the Swiggies for my children’s activities; dancing, gym, and why not for children’s parties when they are usually bouncing/ dancing / running around like mad?

    Great that they are free from BPA!

    PS I am following your blog now.

    I do follow you (I think I do and if I don’t I shall) and we would use them when we were out and about on our family fun days!

  9. September 18, 2010 / 1:38 pm

    Do you know what, I reckon I’d save them for myself and use them for running. What a terrible mummy i am! I’m off to check out their website, in all honesty these really look perfect for running 🙂 x

    I would use them with Baba for when we are walking the dog so that he always has something to drink when we are walking.

    I would use this when we’re out and about! I forgot the sippy cup today and was in big trouble from a very grumpy boy (and his daddy!).

    I would use these anywhere, everywhere. What a great idea, my kids are always spilling drinks!


  13. September 20, 2010 / 10:22 am

    We’d use the swiggies when out and about with Zara as we are forever dropping our sippy cups!

    My 2 wd love these for when we r out and about:) they are such a great idea

  15. September 22, 2010 / 8:13 am

    I’ve subscribed through Google reader. I would use these when out and about rather than at home. Little Miss A forgets to drink when we’re out but she wouldn’t if her bottle was attached to her.

    I’d use them everywhere too, esp walks with the dog, in the car, shopping tips. I think they are a fantastic idea.

    I would use these on my two daughters when we go out on our bikes. Childrens bikes are not always easy to fit water bottles on and these would be perfect!

    i would give it to my grandson he would love it

    I would give them to my sons aged 6 and 10 who are both autistic and need prompting to drink, i think this would be a fun way to get them to drink and as its already on their body would encourage them to drink more.

    I would use these – EVERYWHERE out of the house and in

  21. September 23, 2010 / 2:03 pm

    I would love a pink pair for my Isabelle. I have the red ones when I go running and now she wants them, so please choose me ;)))))) @Kahanka

    These would be great for when out and about. I’m always leaving his drnks at home, at least this way they’d be attached.

    I would use these when out at the park or when the kids go and ride their bikes/scooters

    Hi wow what a fab idea these are, i would love to try them out as my 2 kids are forever losing their cups. I would use these on a daily basis and they would most definately be a great help when out in the car or most definatley in the shops as everytime they spot juice they are immediatley thirsty, so they would have no excuse then. :).

    i would use these for my 2 sons beacuse all there drink bottles get thrown over the gardens so at least they would be safe on their wrists
