The weather changing and Summer starting means that my kids are outside more. We also are outside more as a family. Even though I make our kids come back inside for a break after a short period to get out of the sun for a while, they are constantly running in and out the door for a drink of water. Last Summer, they took their water bottles out and a lot of times they were lost or left out there. I just found out about Swiggies not long ago and was thrilled to receive the opportunity to try them out. We were sent a two pack of child Swiggies and they are really great!
What exactly are Swiggies you ask? They are water bottles that you wear on your wrist! The Wrist Water Bottle! These are super great for kids when they are playing outside and are also great when going to the park or hiking when you would normally carry a water bottle. I don’t know how many times I heard, “Mom, would you carry this?”. Not easy when I have my own water bottle to carry! Swiggies come in a variety of colors and the ones we received were purple.
They come in a pack of two so that way one can be worn on each wrist. They are comfortable to wear even when they are filled up. The child Swiggies hold 8 ounces of water (or sports drink). They slip on the wrist and velcros on the bottom and top of the strap so they are very adjustable. The side of the wrist bottle that sits on the wrist is contoured to fit the wrist so that they are comfortable and prevents them from sliding.
They have a pull top which makes them easy to drink from. I love them because it makes it so easy to not have to break stride in whatever your child (or you) is doing by fiddling with a water bottle. A big plus for me when taking my evening walk! Especially my power walking time! Just like my son while playing on the swingset. He’s got his water right there!
Another use for them is to use them as a cold pack. Just put them in the freezer for a bit or refrigerator (I don’t think you would want them to be freezing cold) put them on your wrist to cool the body down. We think they are great. For our kids, they definitely make carrying water so much easier, always having their water handy, and no worries about breaking stride in what your child is doing!
Like I said, great for adults too. I have used our child Swiggies myself while walking – pretty nifty! Adult Swiggies are a little bigger and hold 11 ounces of water or sports drink. Oh, and one other thing – we have never experienced them leaking at all!
