First out of the blocks, we here at Babyology HQ, agree that SIGG is top of the pops – and water fountain. Robust in all of its aluminium glory, this Swiss made water bottle will bounce back every time, is easy to clean and holds plenty of water for the day. The larger of the kids range holds 600ml ($39.90) and is a great option for school aged children while the smallest bottle is perfect for packing into the child care or preschool bag – and there’s plenty of awesome designs on offer!
