The best steel water bottle for older kids
September 15, 2022
The 14-ounce Takeya Actives Kids Insulated Water Bottle With Straw Lid has a hard folding spout (attached to an internal straw) that kids can open and close securely. Like the Thermos Funtainer, the double-walled Takeya Actives Kids keeps drinks cold for hours. It’s the easiest of our picks to take apart and reassemble for cleaning, and you can place both the bottle and the top in the dishwasher.
Although this bottle is typically more expensive than our other picks, the larger capacity (it also comes in even bigger sizes) and bright but not childish color options are likely to appeal to older kids, as well as to grown-ups looking for a smaller bottle.
