MY kids love Smiggle products so were delighted to receive the Smiggle Glitz Water Bottle. We received it in coral, which is a beautiful iridescent peachy pink, but it is also available in a very cool sparkly black and lilac. My youngest said that she thought it was absolutely beautiful and that it reminded her of a mermaid tail. Priced at £13.50, it isn’t cheap, but it is certainly eye-catching and is probably around the price I would look at spending as a gift.
The water bottle, which measures 7.2cm (Dia.) x 27.5cm (H), has a 500ml capacity, ensuring that you have plenty of water to sip all day. It is made from strong plastic with a double-walled design, which means the drink stays cool for longer. Between the two layers is the sequin pink insert, meaning you get the look of the sequins but still have the full practicality of a proper drinks bottle.
The spout flips up enabling you to drink through the attached straw. We prefer this style of water bottle as it stops younger children pouring the drink all over themselves when trying to drink. Because of the design, the water bottle isn’t dishwasher safe and needs to be washed by hand, but I handwash all of our water bottles anyway so that’s not an issue for us. It is also BPA free, which is reassuring as a parent to know the kids won’t be ingesting any nasty chemicals.
We loved this really funky, eye-catching design and it feels very Smiggle – it is instantly identifiable as the kind of product they sell, and both kids thought it was great. At the price it is, I probably won’t be allowing the kids to take it into school with them, but it does make a lovely present and is ideal for using at home.
We are over the moon with the Smiggle water bottle – the quality of the item is fantastic.
