SPRING Giveaway: Swiggies

This post may contain affiliate links, view my disclosure policy.

Swiggies! Have you heard of them? They are little water bottles that you wear on your wrists! Each Swiggie bottle holds 8 fl. oz. and is the perfect size for my kids to use! (although my husband used them once too!) They do make an adult size that holds 11 fl. oz. They are made with BPA-free plastic and CAN be put in the freezer, although I don’t think that my kids would go for a frozen water bottle attached to their wrist!! Seriously though, we live in Florida and most of the year it is H.O.T. Our family does a lot of outdoor activities and hiking and it is rather a pain to have to lug around water bottles for the kids while we are out. Letting the kids wear Swiggies gives them access to water anytime they need it and it isn’t too heavy for them to hold on their wrist.

It attaches to their wrist with a soft elastic band that can be hand washed as needed. Once my kids spotted them they were begging to use them! They are totally obsessed with water bottles so this was perfect for them! My kids had a little coordination trouble opening the Swiggie while it was on their wrists but my oldest son just learned to slip it on and off as needed.

These are great not only for hiking but your kids can wear them to the pool, amusement parks, walking pets, going to parades & more. My kids even fill up their Swiggies just to use them at home! They are very sturdy and are not made out of a soft plastic like a water bottle is. My kids cannot “squish” these.

One of my readers will win their own set of Swiggies! To enter simply follow Surviving a Teacher’s Salary by e-mail, Facebook, OR Twitter and leave a comment below letting me know why you need Swiggies!

    What a great invention! My son and daughter are always playing outside. These would be great! They would always want them filled!

  2. Julia Reeb says

    I follow you on FB and what a great idea! perfect for our walks, playground time, and other outings!

  3. Chrystal says

    I like this idea a lot. I have some students that have so many things to carry with augmentative devices, back packs, books, etc. This would be a great way to have water on hand for them. It would also solve the problem of students drinking from each other’s water bottles.

  4. Coleen Siansky says

    I need Swiggies because I can’t carry any more stuff in my purse for my 3 girls! I can just have them carry their own water! Thanks for another great giveaway, I follow you on FB.

  5. Nichole W. says

    That is THE coolest thing I’ve ever seen. My son would flip, he is always on the search for the coolest water bottle!

  6. Emily says

    I follow you on facebook and Twitter. My son is a very active 3 year old and we have a ton of out door hiking and camping adventures planned for this summer. He would love to have his own portable water bottle!

    These would be great – we wouldn’t be fighting over which bottle belongs to which person.

    I subscribed by email and i live in Florida too, and we need them because like you we do alot of activities outside and the kids get hot, its a pain in the butt to carry around 4 water bottles all the time!

  13. Laurie Emerson says

    I love these! My children love to play outside but I cannot count how many water bottles they have gone outside and been lost. This is such a perfect solution!

    I need this because my son is always asking for water and it drives me crazy! He always forgets where he put his water bottle. I think it’d be easiest if it was something he was wearing :)

  15. Kristen m says

    I subscribe via email and we could really use these on sort hikes in the nature preserve to help start the kids started on being self-reliant with hydration!
