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.
