WaterBuds are a little
invention that intends to create an easy, re-usable solution for quick
bottle identification. The soft rubber charm is attached to an
expandable ring sized to fit snugly around the neck of a water bottle.
WaterBuds touts three
simple steps to use their product:
Pick the design
you like best - WaterBuds come in a variety of styles with designs
that aim to match every mood and occasion
Snap your WaterBud
on your bottle - they can also be used by pulling them around
handles of mugs, looping them through pull tabs of soft drinks or
wrapping them around straws
Be able to tell
your bottle apart from others - claim it as your own, but let the
bottle do your talking
invented to help avoid germs, reduce waste and save money.
INDIVIDUAL CATEGORY RATINGS
WaterBuds are exactly as easy to use
as you would expect them to be. Once our review
team was able to convince the kids to stop arguing over
who gets which one and just pick, it took a quick second
to snap on the bottles and loop around the drinks.
And once there - they did exactly what they are supposed
to do - identify which drink belongs to which person.
Easy as can be!
The parents on our review team saw
no major cause for concern in the durability department.
More concern was for accidentally throwing them away
while still attached to a bottle. Other than that,
as long as you keep an eye on each of these little
WaterBuds they should last a lifetime.
No questions here - they are
absolutely adorable. All of the parents and all of
the kids on the review teams enjoyed sorting through the
WaterBuds and picking out which were their favorites.
WaterBuds have one mission and one
mission alone - to help people identify which drink is
theirs. And WaterBuds fill that role perfectly.
Our reviewers did feel that the overall uses were
somewhat limited, but this isn't a multi-purpose tool -
it is a drink identifier. And when it comes to
making it easier for people to remember which drink is
their own, WaterBuds will have you covered.
At just under $5 per four pack, our
review team was actually surprised to find a novelty
product like this that wasn't overpriced. Look,
like our reviewers said, if these cost a lot of money
there would be no way they would make strong
recommendations on a product like this - but priced
right around $1.25 each, our review team was happy to
pile on the positives.
Many of the parents on our review
team have seen small objects with a similar purpose
often used for wine or martinis in adult settings.
While none had really considered using for kids drinks,
they still felt they couldn't score these too highly in
the originality category.
When the parents on our review
team first took a look at WaterBuds we can honestly
report back that not many thought this would be a
five star product. But think about it, they
are so fun looking kids really like using them, and
they really help kids remember which drink is
theirs. You are going to stop the spread of
germs and stop wasting extra bottles of drinks.
And best of all, they are not so expensive that
parents wouldn't want to spend the money. Put
all of that together and we've got a five star
