Rated 2 out of 5 by AndrewJB OK Water Bottle
My 8 year old son drinks tons of water and goes through water bottles fast. All leakproof bottles eventually leak, and most don't hold up to his use. This bottle in general has been good. It is a bit big in his lunch box, but it does just fit. The straw on occasion has come loose and made it difficult to actually get water out. Also the internal tubing eventually twisted and prevent all water from flowing. I was able to fix this after I figured out what was wrong. The locking mechanism is poor. I find that it hardly stays closed and will open if a gnat flies by. I had purchased another water bottle from an outdoor store that was great until it shattered. So much for unbreakable. I am still searching for the perfect bottle.

Rated 1 out of 5 by anniegk straw doesn't work
I can't figure out how to put the straw back in after the initial wash. The valve piece that connects to the straw keeps popping out and is not secure. I am returning this and buying Camelbak or Contigo kids' water bottles.

My child loves this water bottle and that's why I'm giving it 2 instead of 1 star. After rigorous use, it leaks, the handle keeps detaching and there is black mold growing in the spout that won't come off with a spout brush.

Rated 2 out of 5 Leaky, Difficult to Clean, and No Replacement Part
I really wanted to love this bottle. My son loves the shark design, and the flip top. However, I still have not figured out how to remove the mouthpiece for cleaning, it leaks when stored in a lunchbox, and most importantly, I need to replace the straw, and there are no replacements for this. So, now, I have a completely useless cute bottle. I expected better from L.L. Bean.

My 2-year-old son was very excited to receive his new water bottle. It holds a lot of water, which is great, seems pretty sturdy (it has already had a few tumbles from the table), and a very fun design. I got it for him in anticipation of our first family camping trip, so we are on the right track...

Rated 5 out of 5 by rmc19 Way better than commonly found cups!
We use drink cups like these a lot with out two boys (mostly to prevent spills everywhere), and up until we got a few of these, we were really unhappy that these cups commonly leak or wear out quickly.
We got a few of these to try them out and they work much better than the similar kinds that you can find commonly in grocery stores or specialty "baby" stores.
They will, occasionally, still leak a little if the rubber gasket gets offset where the straw connects inside the cup. But that's easy to push around and reset properly.
Another great thing is that these are slightly lower profile than other cups we've found, and they hold a bit more fluid. Great fit for the lunchboxes we use!

This water bottle is great! Both of my daughters, who are 10 & 7, fight over who gets to use it! They love the size and ease of opening the straw and the cute design. I love how I can put it in the dishwasher!
