8oz. HERO Sport Bottles

 The 8oz. HERO bubba sport bottles are designed with a dual wall food grade stainless steel body. They are vacuum insulated to keep your beverage inside from changing temperatures. You can keep cold beverages cool in these HERO bubba sport bottles for up to 24 hours. They are also sweat proof and dishwasher safe. 

Cade uses the blue and Ezio uses the pink 8oz. HERO bubba sport bottles. These bottles hold one cup of liquid, perfect for toddlers and children. Cade is very picky when it comes to his cups. It took lots of trial and error to finally find a sippy cup he would take at a year old and then he stuck to that cup and would not switch from it. I was very surprised when he took to the 8oz. HERO bubba sport bottle with no problems and he always asks for this bottle, I am very pleased with it! 

Ezio will drink from pretty much anything, total opposite of his brother! Ezio is 1.5 years old, if you give him the option of the bubba sport bottle and his other 3 sippy cups he always chooses the bubba sport bottle so we no longer use the other sippy cups. I am happy about this, the sport bottles are definitely better for them then sippy cups. 

We have put milk in these cups and although they have a straw, I never have an issue washing them by hand! I always get a nice clean, even within the straw. I was nervous when Dan first put milk into one of the bubba sport bottles, I wasn't sure that I would be able to get it clean and I was nervous that milk would become lodged in the straw if it were left over night and became curdled. In fact I have accidentally forgotten to rinse/wash them out a few times before bedtime and the milk did not curdle as it would in a not so well insulated sippy cup, but it didn't smell 100% good still. It was totally easy to wash out, only thing that happened to the milk is that it thickened up a bit. 



We use these when we go on walks, play in the backyard, play at the park, etc. They go everywhere with us! Each bottle came with two straws, just in case you need to replace one. Ezio loves to throw his cups, at impact the stoppers always come out and if I don't notice then his beverage is spilling everywhere. He has also busted open several sippy cups by throwing them, the plastic cracks and everything inside and all of a sudden all over the floor! He has thrown the bubba sport bottle and no more then maybe two small drops of liquid come out, the straw does not come loose nor does the sport bottle really dent or damage. Definitely built for a destructive toddler with an awesome price of only $9.98!!

11oz. Raptor Sport Bottle


The lloz. RAPTOR Sport Bottles are awesome and light weight for children or adults on a run or hike. These bottles have a dual wall constructions creating an insulated barrier, keeping your beverage from changing temperatures. These bottles keep cold beverages cold for 6 hours. They also fit in most car cup holders! They are also sweat proof and dishwasher safe. As well as BPA FREE!

Cade also uses the blue RAPTOR Sport Bottle above, he switches between the two, but prefers the HERO for it's smaller size. Ezio loves to steal the blue RAPTOR from Cade, I think he is hoping there will be chocolate milk in there. He loves chocolate milk, but is allergic to chocolate. Jedilynn uses the pink RAPTOR Sport Bottle to the left. She mainly drinks water from it. Jedilynn really dislikes water that is not cold, she has not once complained about her water being warm. Including while at the park or in the backyard playing and even if the bottle is not fully in the shade.

Jedilynn and Cade both do not like when they pick up a cup or bottle to drink from and their hands are wet from the sweat, these bottles do not sweat at all, making for a dry and clean thirst quench! 

Jedilynn has drank milk in her RAPTOR bottle and although I told her she had to make sure she at least rinsed it out once she was done with it, of course she did not. So when I found later the next day it did start to curdle. Was still very easy to wash out though and the plastic did not retain any of the yucky curdled milk smell! I was very pleased when I sniffed the inside of the bottle after washing it and did not smell a single stench of curdled milk! Happy mama again, thanks to the awesome thermal hydration experts at bubba brands, inc!

Yep, stole his brother's blue RAPTOR Sports Bottle when he wasn't looking, thankfully there was only flavored water in there! Nice try sassy boy! 
 Jedilynn thought I was weird for taking a picture of her drinking from her new water bottle.

 The 16oz. HERO Sport Bottle is built with a dual-wall of food grade stainless steel for the body and is also vacuum insulated. Keeping your beverages cool for up to 24 hours! It is also sweat proof, dishwasher safe and BPA FREE! 

The bottle I received has purple in place of the yellow. The spout has a silicone soft spout over the hard plastic. Very nice, however Ezio wanted a drink from mommy's bottle instead of his own. instead of just taking a nice drink he chewed the soft part in half. Sad mama! 
I've drank both water and lemonade from this sport bottle and have to say it really does keep it nice and cold. Add a few ice cubes and brain freeze!

 20oz. HERO Bottle 

The 20oz. HERO Bottle is built with a dual-wall of food grade stainless steel for the body and is also vacuum insulated. Keeping your beverages cool for up to 24 hours and hot beverages hot for up to 8 hours! It is also sweat proof, dishwasher safe and BPA FREE!

My 16 year old brother asked to borrow this HERO bottle because he was taking two gym classes this semester. In his gym class they walk MANY miles, play sports, etc. so having a high quality thermal insulated bottle for his water is definitely important. He does not like water that is warm or hot from being outside, he was very pleased with this bottles ability to keep his water and juice cold through out the day. He also said it was light weight making it easy to carry.
