ChillFactor Drinks Bottle

You may remember that we recently reviewed a great Slushy Drinks maker that was a big hit with Monkey.  Well we were recently sent the ChillFactor Drinks Bottle to try out too.

ChillFactor Drinks Bottle

The ChillFactor Drinks Bottle is available in pink and blue and is aimed at children aged 3 years and over.  The bottle comes with clear instructions for cleaning, putting the bottle together and for making the cold drinks.

The components are easy to take apart and cleaned.  We don’t have a dishwasher, but if you do, please note that the outer bottle casing (blue in this instance) and the cooling pack are hand washable only!

Once cleaned, you need to store the cooling pack, upright in your freezer for 4-6 hours. Yes, some forward planning is required, but as it’s recommended to store the pack in the freezer anyway, once you’ve got into the habit, it’s there for use anytime.

Once the required time has been left, reassemble the ChillFactor Drinks Bottle (without lid) and add your required drink (please note that carbonated drinks do not work with this system).  Monkey loves Apple Juice so I filled the bottle up until the drink reached the holes in the cooling pack. Then you screw the lid back on and you will notice an instant colour change.

You then squeeze the bottle for 15 seconds to chill the drink, and you notice the bottle colour getting darker as the process takes place.

Your chilled drink is then ready! There are two options for drinking – either the straw or sip spout.

Then it was over to Monkey, he’d had a busy day at school, the sun was out and he was in need of a nice cool drink to refresh him.

He liked having an ice-cold drink and I can see this being really useful on a hit summers day when he’s been having fun in the garden.  The downside to the ChillFactor Drinks Bottle in my opinion, is the size.  My son is not a small 5 year old, but he found it really a bit too big for him, and it was the first point Daddy P made – wow, that’s big.

Priced at £12.99 the ChillFactor Drinks Bottle is available to purchase direct from the Character Online website and there is free delivery for orders over £25.00

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. Wow that is quite a big bottle but love the sound of a drinks bottle that can cool your drink down quickly too. I think it would be too big for my eldest to use but might be something hubby and I would use when out and about.

  2. It is really large and not ideal to fit in the side of a backpack on a day out, but Miss M loves her pink one and I think it’ll be great for long journeys in the car in the summer or fun in the garden at home.

I'd love to hear from you and try to reply to all comments
