Contigo gets Better: Kids Have a New Spill-Proof Gizmo that Parents will Love!

Written by

There's always that saying about "time flying" when you have kids, and the same applies to running this website. It was two years ago this month that I first shared our love for the innovative spill-proof travel mugs and bottles produced by Chicago-based CONTIGO, and here we are again. The folks at Contigo can't stop improving, and thus comes the latest additions to their Contigo Kids line - the 14oz AUTOSEAL® Gizmo Sip Water Bottle, and the 10oz AUTOSPOUT® Flip Chill Water Bottle. Each has its own set of benefits, and the technology packed into each bottle is the same great spill-proof action that my wife and enjoy each and every day in our own bottles and mugs. To get summer started off right, the folks at Contigo have provided me with two of each of these new bottles that we're going to give all of you a chance at scoring. Two (2) lucky readers will receive a prize pack that includes one (1) AUTOSEAL Gizmo Sip and one (1) AUTOSPOUT Sip Chill. Let's rock...

The new Spill-proof Gizmo is interesting, as I thought it would be something more geared toward Little Finley, though Adalyn has commandeered it. The one-touch button and soft handle make it perfect for travel - either through the neighborhood on localized adventures, or in the car for a little bit of road trip action. It's like an easy-to-clean sippy cup, at the AUTOSEAL® action keeps dirt and germs from getting inside when the bottle gets tossed around in the yard or the playground. And, when we're reviewing cars (like the 2015 Toyota Sienna in the picture above), I don't have to worry about The Rock Daughters spilling inside of a car that's here on-loan. Same peace-of-mind that comes into play for our own rides.

The AUTOSPOUT Flip Chill is a personal favorite of mine, it's stainless steel design very similar in form and function to my longtime favorite Sheffield Water Bottle. The Thermalock™ double-wall vacuum-insulation keeps drinks cold for up to 14 hours and eliminates condensation (it's like Alien Technology!), which means the drinks stay cool for hours - even during the warm days. Not that the kids would actually keep a drink sitting for hours.
