We love to travel.
Scratch that. We love the IDEA of traveling. Actual traveling? With kids? When one is potty training and the other is a baby?
It’s hard work. But also fun work! So back to… We love to travel!
So I’m always looking for ways to make life easier. When Thermos sent me a set of their stainless steel products for review, I was thrilled, knowing I could use them for our trip to the beach!
Not only did the kids enjoy getting new (and matching!) cups, but I loved that they are BPA free, unbreakable stainless steel! These cups fit into car cup holders so they are perfect for the ride.
When you’re traveling, it’s a good idea to keep the kids hydrated – it’s easy for them to get distracted and forget to drink enough. Also, we bring our own cups everywhere, because you never know when you’re going to have to split that ice cold beverage you just got with them – rather than make a mess sharing a cup around the car, we just divvy it up into their smaller cups! That makes life easier!
My favorite container from Thermos, personally, was the Foogo Leak Proof Jar which holds 10 ounces of food. Keeps it hot or cold for many hours with it’s Thermos® vacuum-insulation technology. The wide mouth makes it easy to fill. Of course, when you fill it with blueberries… it’s not going to stay full very long! So we sat out on the beach with our Foogo cups and jar (which once had blueberries but then I filled with kale-sweet-potato salad!). And a good time was had by all!
The baby got to drink from the Foogo Vacuum-Insulated Hard Spout Sippy Cup as he’s transitioning from nursing to drinking on his own. He likes open cups but… well, you can imagine what happens with those. So a leak-proof sippy cup is the way to go! BPA-free unbreakable stainless steel inside and out, with a leak-proof valve that is easy to clean (no seriously, just pop it out and wash and pop it in). THAT makes life easier!
Our oldest son used the Foogo Stainless Steel Leak-Proof Straw Bottle. This is by far his favorite cup and I can see I’ll have to get him another one! (They come with fun prints too!). What I love about the straw bottle is the flip-top lid that opens with the push of a button. It’s essential for the beach to have the lids of your beverages covered so they don’t get sand in/on them!
The great thing about the Thermos Foogo cups is their Phases™ interchangeable lid system – so when the baby grows past the sippy cup stage, I’ll just get a straw cup top and we’ll keep the stainless bottom part! Way to go, Thermos!
Also – very friendly design with a sweat-proof bottom (won’t leave water rings from condensation), and dishwasher safe. Oh, now that definitely makes life easier!
Wow… I’m taking Thermos along with us every where we travel!! One way to make traveling with kids just a wee bit easier!
Thanks to Thermos for sending products for review! All opinions are 100% my own!
