    We were so happy to receive a box of pineapple flavoured water.
    Perfect size for my kidlets. It’s a shame it’s the holidays as sport, swimming, dance and kindy are over.. but we found lots of exciting ways to try this out.
    I actually tried this first it’s the perfect handbag size and I personally found it delicious.. our water doesn’t taste that great so was really nice having a chilled bottle I could grab and go. The kids were watching me wanting their own but I held them off a day to wait for Easter.
    We included this with my kids Easter surprises it was nice having another non sugar element to their treats.
    They instantly wanted to dive into this after watching me try it and they weren’t disappointed. Both my 2 and 4 yo loved the flavour and novelty of having an adult drink bottle.
    The size is perfect.
    If it spills it’s a slow leak so it doesn’t end up everywhere.
    The flavour went down very well.
    The spout wasn’t too fast or slow to dispense which made for no choking on water.
    It’s a good shape bottle nice for little hands to hold.. like when we went scooting my daughter could hold the bottle and scoot at the same time.
    Cute design and very appealing to my kids they usually want what we have so it’s nice to have an option for them.
    One thing.. the nozzle protector is hard to get off but once it’s off it’s all good – we disposed of the protector as I often also do with my own bottles.. and the kids found the nozzle easy enough to use by itself so win win.
    Thank you Kidspot can’t wait to see how else we use these I’m planning a picnic which these would be perfect for.
    We loved them for Easter and scooting about town.

    Would love for my kiddies to try Pumped Mini! These looks awesome and anything (low sugar) to encourage better water drinkage for little ones sounds great!

  3. Amber 22/04/2019 at 8:06 pm

    Enjoyed receiving such a generous supply to try. WE got pineapple and I was pleased with that choice, but the flavour disappointed those in our family who have tried it so far.(just the Adults). the kids are away on holiday, so I will comment after they have tried it. Hubby found it very hard to get the lid to pull off, but that did mean the they are leak proof which is great. The size was great and also the shape of the bottle.

  4. deendan 22/04/2019 at 8:02 pm

    Thanks for letting us trial the Mini Pump Bottles. The kids liked the flavour. Good size and comfortable to hold. The lids were hard to open though & I had to help.
    Flavour was apple and was very mild in flavour. Like that is is sugar free!! Taste was mellow and enjoyed by adults as well.
    Would buy the product. 🙂

  5. Micht 22/04/2019 at 7:30 pm

    We were very grateful for the opportunity to trial the waters and my 6yr old picked pineapple as her flavour…firstly i couldnt believe so many bottles could fit in the hand held sized box…but sure enough 18 bottles were inside. 250ml each.. my daughters friend was here so she shared with her.. immediately my daughter did not like the taste and did not want anymore… my 2.5yr old also did not like it. My daughters friend however who is also 6, totally enjoyed it… and wanted more… i think it is an acquired taste and i personally did not like the flavour either. The size of bottle was perfect, drink accessibility was great for both 2.5yr old and 6… amount is perfect for play dates and short trips to park etc. Sadly flavour a fail… maybe apple may have been a bit better. But unsure if they would have liked it. Photos to follow.

  6. Angelstar 22/04/2019 at 6:56 pm

    We enjoyed trialing this with many kids over Easter. Verdict… like the taste with no nasties. Negative….. didn’t like drinking out of cap as hard to get water. When you pushed it back into bottle it squirted all over the place.

  7. Abs46 22/04/2019 at 5:16 pm

    We received the pineapple flavour and what a hit!!! My 7 year old finds it hard to drink straight water but loved the splash of flavour with these. And such a great wee size. We went to the swimming pool in the holidays and I just popped a couple in my handbag. Perfect!

  8. Mary110370 22/04/2019 at 5:00 pm

    Thank you for the opportunity to review these. We were sent a box of Pineapple flavoured water and unfortunately it wasn’t a hit in this household. Miss 3 took one mouthful and looked at me with a very confused face. Mater 18 months will drink it. I think its the novelty of being allowed his own big boy bottle but he still goes back to his sipper cup with plain water by preference. I personally didn’t think they tasted too bad but I wont be buying them just for me. I love the idea and the bottle size is perfect for carrying around in the nappy bag or throwing a few in my handbag. I’ve given a few bottles away to various friends seeing as my kids weren’t too impressed so will follow up with their opinions when they come in. Thanks again for the opportunity to review Kidspot.

    My name is Aurora and my Nana Wendy was lucky enough to be selected as a reviewer and we got a box of the apple water
    I love it as you can see in my photo – also Nana said its healthy for me as it has no sugar
    I start school next week and Nana said these bottle will be perfect for me to take to school and I can’t wait.
    Thank you for the apple water I love it

  10. KimStancliffe 22/04/2019 at 3:09 pm

    Thank you Kidspot & Pumped Mini! We got sent the pineapple flavour and my 15month old boy absolutely loves them!!! So great as well knowing they have no sugars or preservatives, was happy letting my little guy have them 🙂
    We went out to the off-roading north island championships and popped 4 in the nappy bag for all of us! So great and convenient! And the taste was a hit amongst the whole family!
    Only con I could come up with is the amount of plastic wastage (even though can be recycled) I think it would be great if Pump had a water drops option to help reduce the whole single use plastic, other than that they were fabulous!!!

  11. ToniW 22/04/2019 at 2:32 pm

    Thanks so much for selecting us for the trial. We got the apple flavour. The bottle size and nozzle I felt was ideal. Mr 4 however was not a fan sadly. Mr 1 doesn’t seem to mind it but can’t really give feedback. I’ll give some to my nephews 7yr and 2yr old to try to see how they get on with them.

  12. shellv 22/04/2019 at 1:10 pm

    Thanks Pump and Kidspot for sending us a box of pineapple flavoured Pumped Mini bottles to try out. My Miss 3 liked them straight away, but my Miss 7 found them a bit more of an acquired taste – I think she was expecting more of a stronger juice taste, rather than a subtle flavoured water! Both kids are quite good water drinkers (as we don’t often give them other options!), so this is something I’m happy for them to have. Knowing there is no sugar, no sweeteners, no preservatives and a natural flavour is definitely a big bonus. The novelty factor of the cute little bottle was quite big for them both too!

    I like the sipper top design of the bottles – the smaller holes means it doesn’t flow out too fast for littlies, but the bottle can easily be squeezed to make it flow faster for bigger kids. Also a bonus that it doesn’t just pour out all over the place when tipped over! Found the lid sealed well also, so no leaks through my bag either. Bottle was just a bit tricky for Miss 3 to get the cap off without using her teeth.

    We’ve enjoyed having these to take out and about with us on day trips and walks /bike rides during the school holidays. They are a good serving size for kids, and not too heavy for them to carry themselves. We’re keen to give the apple flavour a go next time! Thanks for the opportunity to review.

    My son received the pineapple mini pump, he absolutely loved the flavour. It wasn’t a strong flavour which was perfect. Great convenient size as well. Knowing there was no sugar, no sweeteners, no preservatives and a natural flavour was a big bonus. Thanks Kidspot and pump water.

  14. KGwilly 22/04/2019 at 9:24 am

    We received the pinapple flavour and the kids loved it!! They are big juice lovers so this was the perfect alternative. They both found the lid easy to open and close and the bottles are the perfect size to take in the car or out and about. We went for a big walk and bike ride and the mini pump was so convenient to bring along with us! Highly recommended!

  15. Danipom 21/04/2019 at 10:52 pm

    Our children are 6,5 and 22 months old! We don’t really allow fizzy in our home and it’s hard when it comes to treat drinks as to what to get! They would LOVE these because they could all have their own bottle too. They could also reuse the bottles and put them in the craft box. Rocket ships I’m thinking! I this drink would be a huge hit with near miss two.

  16. ChloeRonaki 21/04/2019 at 6:18 pm

    We were lucky enough to get the pineapple flavour !! Yum yum!
    Mr 8 loved it, as soon as he tried it he loved it!
    Nice size bottle easy to store in the fridge and in his bag!
    Only issues we had were with the cap on the bottle! Mr 8 couldn’t get it off with his hands however was able to get it off with his teeth (I am not a fan of this due to the possibility of choking!) however when I put it in his bag I just remove the cap first!!
    Over all very yum! And love there is no sugar!
    Would buy in future for sure!

  17. Welliketo 21/04/2019 at 5:36 pm

    I have a 2 1/2 year old and she would absolutely love these to try. Firstly as an alternative to the juices and sugary treats she asks to have all the time, and also because we are always trying to get her and our nephews we live with, to drink more water and the pump mini originals always made it a little more fun and appealing to the kids.

    • KarliePlusFour 22/04/2019 at 3:08 pm

      We were selected to try the apple flavour and it was an even split in the house. Miss 2 and Miss 6 loved the flavor. They were super keen to drink there’s whenever offered. However when opening and shutting the sipper top the water spat out and would get their hands or face wet. We aren’t a big fan of this style sipper top.
      Miss 12 and the adults weren’t a fan of the flavour. The first sip was nice but anymore than that was a bit much. It was either too much flavour or not enough. Too much to be flavoured water but like a too watered down cordial.
      The mini bottles were convenient to take with us and easy for the small girls to hold and drink from. We took them with us to the local kiwi park and it was easy to carry them while doing a big walk
      We will reuse the bottles as it seems like a lot of plastic in just one box!

  18. amyb3 21/04/2019 at 1:33 pm

    We have 4 children, aged 9,8,2,2. We would like to try the pump water because I find it so hard to get my kids to drink water. Maybe they will drink flavoured water.

  19. kblm90@gmail.com 21/04/2019 at 1:01 pm

    Hello! We received a box of the pineapple flavour, we have actually tried the apple flavour before and my child wasn’t a fan. Pineapple went down better with my 3 year old and several of her friends however still not the biggest hit in our house with 1/18 bottle actually being fully drank. The water comes out slowly which is a plus but also way to tight for a 3 year old to be able to pull open the nozzle herself. Food for thought! thanks for letting us take part!

  20. KZone7 21/04/2019 at 10:56 am

    Recently I was lucky enough to be selected to review the 250ml mini bottles of pump flavoured water, I understand it comes in two flavours, we unfortunately received the pineapple which was tart to the taste and to be honest with you I wish we were given the apple to sample, in saying that, the size of the samples was outstanding, having 24mini pumps to try, on the positive side they were the prefect size for my son to get one from the fridge and “Slam it down in one go, perfect to avoid it getting warm, his exact words, and being a big family of water drinkers, pump especially, I think it would be a positive, healthy and surprisingly lucrative venture to have a plain unflavoured water as many kids are used to this taste and prefer it. I’m not going to mention the pineapple flavour issue we had on “Kidspot” as it’s a personal taste and all in all the concept is PERFECT FOR KIDS! 💧💦💧.

  21. Ginelle 21/04/2019 at 10:03 am

    Hi, thanks for letting us take part in the trial, we received the pineapple flavour. I found the size great for putting in my handbag and the fact that the nozzle closes tightly to prevent leakage was great. Great for little hands to hold and perfect size so bag isn’t too heavy.
    Taste wise my oldest 3 kids didn’t really like it, it’s quite subtle and a bit tangy but my youngest at age 2 loved it. I love the fact it has no sugar or anything extra and having it ice cold made it taste much better too.
    Only thing is I wonder how much is recycled from the plastic packaging afterwards and how cost effective it is to buy a small bottle compared with a big 750 ml bottle of normal spring water especially when you have 4 kids.
    I have uploaded a pic of my youngest son.

  22. MrsV 21/04/2019 at 9:08 am

    Thank you for letting us trial the Pumped Mini – Pineapple.

    Both my girls enjoyed these, aged 3 and 19 months. The perfect size for taking out with us, we usually carry around a large water bottle which never gets all drunk anyway so these made our days lighter!

    The girls loved having something special for them but I loved that they are sugar free and actually good for them, so no guilt!

    Great colors and design, they look great and fun for kids.

    I was surprised how easily the girls got the lids off and also how they didn’t spill excessively when dropped, very impressed with the new design.

    Highly recommend, will be buying!

    Thanks again

    Thankyou kidspot for selecting us to trial this product.great size for mR 4 f🤗🤩Not quite enough for mr 10 and miss 7 but love the bottle and branding .

  24. Ccarrieme21 20/04/2019 at 4:35 pm

    We received the pineapple flavour, 3 year old likes it but 2 year old does not. I think its a great alternative to juice or when you are trying to get the kids to drink more water when they dont want to. Myself and my 3 year old found the lid hard to get off but my husband done it easy as and showed me an easier way, the sippy part was great. We gave some to the neighbors to try with older kids, they liked the flavour as well and were able to work the lid better. The bottle is a great size for the kids and fit into my handbag easy without taking up too much room.

    • Kayeew 20/04/2019 at 4:42 pm

      Thanks for selecting us to try this pump mini. My Daughter loves it and been fighting it Over her older sister. We got the pineapple flavor and i like it how the taste isn’t very strong and the size is perfect for out And abouts. However the cap was little hard to open.

  25. DJ_PJ 20/04/2019 at 2:31 pm

    Mine are 20 months and 1 month. I would like to try them as Mr 20 months is always stealing my water bottle and I would love for him to try his own sized one

  26. Sylvia Parke 20/04/2019 at 2:28 pm

    We received the Pump pineapple flavoured ones. Everyone loved the subtle flavour. We have tried other flavoured water in the past but they’ve been too strong for us. The size was perfect and easy for little hands to hold. We found it a bit difficult to drink out of it though and we didn’t like how so much plastic was used to make this bottle. Thanks for letting us try this but we probably won’t buy it again.

    My 5 children aged 12, 10, 7, 5 and 1 would love to try these. I like the fact their is no sugar preservatives or sweetners. Thanks : )

  29. LindaK 20/04/2019 at 11:24 am

    Thanks for choosing us for this trial 🙂

    We received the Pineapple flavour Pumped Mini. Both kids took a few sips to get used to the flavour, but both ended up liking it; the flavour is subtle enough to make drinking water more enjoyable, without any sugar which is great. My youngest soon wanted a second bottle!

    The packaging is a good size – I carry around water bottles in my bag, and this was a much better size than what I’ve had to cart around in the past. The cap on the lid is a bit tricky for small hands, but it’s nice to have a hygenic cover available.

    So all-in-all a thumbs-up from our family of four; would happily recommend that others try it too 🙂

  30. spap006 20/04/2019 at 10:05 am

    First time reviewing-thanks for selecting us. We received the pineapple flavour.

    My girls drink a lot of regular Pump Mini, but the four year old dubbed the pineapple one “my favourite”. It definitely smells like pineapple when you open the lid and the nine year old’s verdict was that “it tastes good”, but she felt it “needs a bit more pineapple flavour”. She also said she likes the idea of flavoured water, but really liked that this one comes with no sugar so it’s healthier (tick from Mum in that department as well). Dad was also given a bottle to try and his response was “not too sweet, but not unpleasant. I would drink it again” (which is high praise from someone who prefers not to drink water and is really into his sugary drinks).

    In terms of the bottle: both girls said they loved the pictures on the bottle; especially the pineapples. The lid took a bit of getting used to, but the 9 year old was fine once she got used to it. She also asked if the flavoured option was going to come in bigger bottles. We got out one of our regular Pump mini bottles to compare the design. Compared with the regular 400mL bottle, this bottle fits more easily into little hands and both the 9 year old and I felt that the curved shape of the bottle made it easier to grip.

    Uses: the smaller size makes them great for popping into bags for trips (four bottles went to the zoo yesterday). They would also be handy for dance classes and other after school activities as well as for after school snacks.
