I bought this Peppa Pig drinks bottle for my granddaughter for Christmas. She doesn't always want to drink water and my daughter has problems trying to encourage her so I thought that this bottle would be a good way to help encourage her to drink it as it would seem more fun for her. The bottle is pink so very appealing to little girls and to any Peppa Pig fan in general! It is pale pink with a picture of Peppa on it holding an icecream and with balloons in the background. It is really sweet and my granddaughter took an instant love to it right away, when she opened it on Christmas Day she instantly wanted it to be filled up! The lid is a dark pink and this unscrews like a normal bottle and is easy to put back on again. The actual drinking part of it is a sports cap that you pop up to open and then pop down again to close. My granddaughter can manage to do this by herself but does occasionally struggle but usually she is fine. This is a very practical type of lid to have for young children, it doesn't spill as easily and helps them to drink. When it is down it is tight, we haven't had any spillages. The bottle is easy enough to clean, it's got quite a wide opening so getting a cloth in it to clean it well after using it is easy. I don't put it in the dishwasher or microwave. The only problem is that it isn't the best quality, the picture is starting to chip away a bit already which is a shame. My granddaughter loves this. She finds it easy to hold (we don't fill it up all the way to the top else it would be too heavy) and does definitely drink more water now that we have this. It holds a lot of water too, it is about 25cm high and 7cm wide although it is narrower part way up which makes it easier to grip. I think this is a lovely little bottle it is a shame that the picture will eventually chip away though.
I have two daughters, my eldest is Sophie who is 5 and my youngest is Emily who's 2, Sophie is capable of using a normal cup however she is forever leaving cups lying around where her younger sister can get to them and therefore I insist on her using sports bottles to prevent too much mess if Emily gets hold of Sophies drink. I bought this sports bottle as an extra little present for Sophie on her last birthday and am pretty sure it was Asda that I bought it from, you can still buy a Peppa Pig range from Asda but as with most things they change by the season so I would expect them to be selling a different design by now. You can buy this sports bottle from Amazon and it is currently selling at £3.99 which is a little more than I would usually pay as I tend to pick them up at abolut £2-£3. The main part of the bottle is pale pink which keeps Sophie happy as she loves the colour pink, the top which screws on and off is bright pink and the part which pulls up to allow your child to drink is pale pink so the bottle is very girly. Around the bottom of the bottle there are some pictures of Peppa Pig which at the time was one of Sophies favourite characters although now she is developing into other character choices. The bottle is shaped so that is narrows about 3/4 of the way up which makes it comfortable to hold too. The sports bottle holds half a litre of fluids which I know as we had to measure Sophies drinks for the urethis clinic which means it holds plenty of drink for when we go out as she tends to take a drink out with her. The top of the bottle was quite stiff when she first got it and she had to use her teeth to pull up the lid which meant that we ended up with teeth marks around the top of the bottle. The only problem I have with Sophie using sports bottles is that they are very hard to clean so I often steep them in boiling water to kills any germs, with this sports bottle I have found that the plastic is pretty soft and softens even more and feels very hot when I do this and once emptied out it takes a while for the plastic to stiffen up again. Sophie was very pleased with her Sports bottle when she opened it but she did start favouring he Disney Princess one and Hello kitty over the last couple of months as she is getting a little old for Peppa Pig. The bottle is easy to use once the lid loosened a little and we have found it doesn't leak which is great and mean generally I managed to get it off Emily before she manages to get drink everywhere. I think the sports bottle was pretty however the design on the bottle has just about completely washed off an it did so pretty quickly which I felt was a shame, I am now planning on scrubbing the last few bits of the design off so that she simply has a pink sports bottle. I would only give this bottle 4 out of 5 due to the design washing off easily.
