Rated 3 out of 5 by MYRN1 Nice bottle with poor design
I bought this the end of August to match the lunch box for my son who started kindergarden. Unfortunately the auto-spout feature has been horrible. As other reviewers have mentioned it is not for tossing into a backpack. One very light touch of the button opens the spout up and it gets everything soaked. It is a fine bottle for perhaps just taking on car trips or hiking in the woods, but I cannot recommend this for using back and forth to school. As always though, customer service was great and they are sending a replacement bottle of a different design(with NO auto-spout) and I will return this one.

We saw this in the store and picked up to match discovery red shark backpack and lunch box, and to my delight found the flip lid. I have not seen it leak and my son does not have to bite hard. I had to throw away atleast two bottles because the spout was damaged due to heavy biting and they started to leak after few months of use. But I do see his backpack coming home wet a few times now, so wondering if it does leak.

We bought this thinking it would be great for our 7 old and it is but we had to work at it at first because it was hard to get water out. After breaking it in it is great our son loves it.

I bought this water bottle for my six-year-old son. It is really great! He loves the red with the shark, I love how it doesn't leak or spill! It is easy for him to refill when he's at school. I also love how he doesn't have to touch the spout when he closes or opens it. No germs get on where he drinks from! His friends have asked me where I got it from because they think it is cool too!

Rated 2 out of 5 by BKtraveler Leaks and not for heavy use
I rarely write reviews but had to say something about this bottle. Bought it in August for my 8-year-old daughter for the school year. She has already chewed through the straw part and now it is dangerous to use--the plastic is hanging by a thread and is a choking hazard. There is no replacement cap available, either. She loves it but I am not going to spend money on another one since it leaks if it is in her lunch box--it is very easy to pop open. So disappointed in this product.

I purchased this bottle to go with my son's new backpack and lunchbox...The bottle is adorable. The design is great. Its a great bottle if you never tilt it while travelling...
IT LEAKS EVERYWHERE. Since there is no water bottle pocket on the backpack it is constantly on its side and we have soaked through too many books in the last 3 weeks.
So, do not buy this for tossing in a bag.

OK my daughter & I have gone through sooooo many bottles & they all pop open or leaked in her lunch bag! So far this bottle(butterflies) has NOT & we are thrilled. She loves it & likes the mouth peice as its not hard & its wide enough to let her get a real good drink out of it & not like (as she says) a sippy baby bottle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by pittsburghmomofboys Not for lunch box
I purchased this to put in my son's LL Bean lunch box. It leaks everywhere!!! It is fine for roadtrips or if you know it is going to stay upright. Not for the lunch box!

The water bottle is pretty and great quality but the one touch button pops open constantly and then it leaks. We would have had many wet back pack days if I hadn't noticed it and put the water bottle into a ziplock. This stops my daughter getting a wet bag but I think it also means she doesn't use her water bottle at pre-k.
The one touch opening is a great idea, but it leaks!
