While placing an order on Amazon I was not very convinced that this would be good for my toddler. He had broken 3 bottles (bought from other manufacturers) by letting the bottle fall on the floor. However this bottle has proved more stronger and reliable. He also likes to hold it himself and drink from it. The straw does get dirty after some time, therefore I think purchasing a replacement straw from Amazon would be a good idea.
After trying (and destroying/hating) so many different straw bottles, this one has become our favorite. It is a great size and is easy to hold for little hands. It doesn’t leak and when tipped upside down, doesn’t spill as much as others. The straw is long and thin, so you’ll need a straw brush to make sure it stays mold free. We have this in every color! Great purchase.
