Drink Duets

Drink duets are something I have no idea how I ever got through road trips, days at the park, or even through a day at home without. I got these to review and have got to say, they are exactly what they advertise. I mean, it's sort of a given, but I was surprised how useful these really ended up being. My kids constantly fight over water bottles or drinks and we have had the hardest time solving this issue or keeping them from taking each others drinks and sharing germs with each other. The Drink Duets bottle tags virtually fixed that problem with the first use!

They come in a myriad of colors and are made of foam, so if the bottle is a little bigger it still fits, but it is perfect for water and soda bottles, and if at a party, they would also be great for keeping guests' drinks straight. Since they are a tag and of foam material, it makes it super easy to add names or pictures (or whatever!) to the tags to personalize them. I left them plain for the first time because I wasn't sure how well it would work with my three kids, but even my two year old got it right once he knew which tag color was his. They each picked their favorite colors (red, purple, and green) and they were so excited and it worked so well, we continue to use the tags and have now added their names and a cute picture on each so they have their own special tags.

I love how easy it makes taking the kids' water bottles to the park or out. They can still come over and grab a bottle without me wondering if they are catching another kids' germs (which they LOVE to share) or using another siblings water bottle. Because they all know what color is theirs, we don't have to do as much drama control. They no longer fight over bottles thinking one is theirs when it's the other's bottle or vice versa and it is less confusing for them because there is always a colored Drink Duet tag on their bottles. These would be perfect for family gatherings, parties, picnics/camping, just around home, or even long road trips. Two thumbs for for Drink Duets!

From the Maker:
Hi ! I'm Karen, a mom who ended up inventing a product due to a recurring vacation situation that was making me crazy. Every summer we'd have another family join us at our beach house and would go out the first day and load up at the supermarket with food and drink for the week. The problem is that by noon of the second day we'd be out of the whole case of bottled water. Why ? Because everybody would take a bottle, drink a few slugs and put it down on the table or counter and walk away. Then because they forgot which was theirs, they'd go back to the refrigerator for a fresh bottle. By the end of the eve we are filling the dog bowl, watering the plants and pouring the half full bottles down the drain.
