    Thank you for the opportunity to trial this product, We received the apple flavour and my family have loved them the size of the bottle was perfect for my 4yr old to be able to grab one from the fridge herself and then she has been taking them to training for her water breaks – Amazing product we can’t wait to get more 🙂

    My three kids were super-excited to receive their apple-flavoured mini-pump box! We had a 2/3 success rate in terms of the apple flavour, and chilling the bottles helped. My youngest two found them difficult to open. We did think they were convenient for day trips and especially good for handing out at netball and soccer games. I would not purchase regularly out of concern for plastic usage. Thanks for letting us be part of this trial!

    Thankyou for the product trial of the pump minis! We received the pineapple flavour. 3 of my 5 children really enjoyed this and the other two not so much. Miss 8 really enjoyed it, she said it tasted like just juice splash! It’s a great size for chucking in the school bag or taking on those wee trips to the park. They didnt last long!

    Such a great product the kids loved it, they loved the taste and the bottle size is great

  5. Jennadunn 30/06/2019 at 10:31 am

    The kids loved the taste and it’s in a perfect size bottle. They loved the taste, we will be getting these again

    We got the apple drink. I got 5 of my kids to try it – aged 16, 14, 10 & 7 yr old twins & unfortunately none of them liked it. They loved the look of the bottle, the use of the nozzle, etc. Just not the taste of the product. Thank you for letting us try it though.

    We were sent the pineapple packs an my 1yr an 6yr loved it.. Perfect size for travelling without them drinking a whole big bottle an needing to stop all the time.. Kids were actually able to finish the bottles. Perfect size to fit into bags. Didn’t last very long in our house.

  8. ajpest1415 28/06/2019 at 6:40 am

    Hi I got the apple flavour, my 2 boys didnt really like the flavour. We reuse the wee bottles they are a good size. Would be nice to see some other flavours.

  9. Tansy 27/06/2019 at 8:54 pm

    We received the pineapple flavour. My 20 month old daughter loved being able to have her own bottle and could drink it with ease. She liked the flavour however was over it after a while. Definately a good size to take on the go and go down a treat.
    Not much flavouring though and the lids are too hard for my daughter to open by herself.
    Would reccomend and would most likely buy again

  10. Mummy2EliandAda 27/06/2019 at 8:43 pm

    We received the pineapple one my kids love it especially my 18 month old who wants to drink from a bottle like her brother.
    She even goes to the box and brings one to me when she wants one these are a better option for the car in the event of spilt drinks easy to clean up or stain my kids clothes. ** would definitely purchase in lieu of juice

    • Jinglemanalili 28/06/2019 at 3:31 pm

      My kids loved the pineapple flavor and they’re actually excited having that flash drink bottle in their school bag. Love the bottle as well, strong material used but kinda hard to pull the lid, a struggle to open for little kids. But would recommend this mini pump better than drinking plain water.

  11. ralf_71 27/06/2019 at 8:23 pm

    We received the Apple flavour To begin my son didn’t like them, but after they had been chilled for a day or so, he said they were quite nice for a change. I enjoyed having to grab out of the fridge on my way to school pick up. especially if we were going out afterwards. It was the perfect size for a quick drink before doing other activities.

  12. Shill 27/06/2019 at 5:56 pm

    What a fantastic idea, the kids were so excited when they turned up. Perfectly flavoured they went down a treat with both the 18 month old at the 6 year old.
    Being able to grab one on the go in a busy house hold and helped lots to know they they have stayed hydrated throughout the day. Thank you for the opportunity they are a perfect size for little hands without being heavy.

  13. nzmonstar 27/06/2019 at 5:38 pm

    The kids loved the pineapple flavour and found the bottle the perfect size for them. My only issue is the amount of plastic involved

  14. TaylaJaime 27/06/2019 at 5:38 pm

    We had the Apple flavour but unfortunately my 9 and 6 year old kids didn’t like it. They said it “tasted funny”. They do drink regular apple juice on occasion so I suspect they were comparing the flavour to that, which of course is very different!

  15. Zhuzhu 27/06/2019 at 5:16 pm

    Miss 7 and miss 4 love the pineapple flavours

  16. feebell 27/06/2019 at 1:49 pm

    Master 8 loved the pineapple drink and so did the rest of his soccer team. Great size and enough of a different taste from water to make it a treat. Only problem was the lid is quite hard to remove. Thanks to all involved

  17. Anne.napper37 26/06/2019 at 10:25 pm

    We really liked the size of the bottle. They are so handy to grab and pop in a bag on the way out of the house. My son liked having his own little bottle and it encouraged him to drink more water. He did seem to get a bit over the pineapple flavor after a while.

  18. CPunnett 26/06/2019 at 9:17 pm

    My two girls 6 and 3 trialed product. 3 year old was a big fan, 6 year old didn’t like the taste but she is the fussy eater of the two lol. We also shared a few bottles with their friends and they liked it. I like the convenience of the bottles and great for on the go.

  19. Collette 26/06/2019 at 6:53 pm

    We received the pineapple flavour. Unfortunately my children did not like it. I had a taste myself, and have to say it was rather lacking in the flavour department; it tasted almost metallic. I think it’s great that it has no sugar etc, but maybe a natural sweetener like stevia would make it more palatable.

  20. Aimz2416 26/06/2019 at 6:52 pm

    We were very lucky to be chosen to review this water. We had the pineapple one. Things we like were the size of the bottle, the kids could open and close it themselves, the sugar content and how available it is to purchase. My 3 year olds didnt particularly like the flavour of it, even though they like pineapple and it was hard to get them to try it again. However they did enjoy the small bottles to use as a refill. I think this would be a product I would give my kids, especially if they enjoyed it as it feels like a treat without it being unhealthy.

  21. Ceri 26/06/2019 at 6:22 pm

    Great size really handy to have in there bags while out and about. Kids loved them

  22. Butterfly 26/06/2019 at 5:54 pm

    My family received the pineapple flavor. Such cute wee bottles! My7 year old loved them, as did my 3yr and 1yr old nephews. I thought the lid was great for wee mouths, and the youngest ones found them really easy to drink! I love that there are no sweeteners in them and I would definitely purchase these for the kids instead of some of the other flavoured water available! I used these mostly when I was out and about, and also at family gatherings when cordial or a treat of fizzy would usually be provided.

  23. Jennwgtn 26/06/2019 at 4:51 pm

    Our busy family of six ( Mum, Dad, Miss 5, Miss 3 and 10mth old twins) were lucky to be selected to trial Pumped mini in the Pineapple flavour. The girls were super excited to see the box on the door step and eagerly opened them. We loved the size of the bottles- great for little hands and both of them could easily finish a whole bottle in one sitting- no waste!
    The flavour was lovely- not too strong and it was interesting to trial pineapple! Nice and refreshing without leaving a chemical after taste. I loved being able to hand them to the kids knowing that they were getting a treat ( I’m a mean mum and only give out plain water usually ) and was reassured they were being given heaps of sugar.
    We packed the drinks for trips to the park, here then into the ballet bag for a refreshment after practice and also used them for car trips. I would happily buy these for a wee treat againN
    Thank you for choosing us!

    We received the apple flavour and it was foul. All my kids spat it out and my youngest just about puked

  25. ABrooks 26/06/2019 at 4:45 pm

    Absolutely loved this product was perfect for on the go and even at home. If we were heading out for the day was great to grab and have in the car. My 4 year old girl loved the flavour and the size was great to put in lunch boxes or my handbag. We received the apple flavour which was nice and refreshing. The lids were good and didn’t leak. Small enough to have them in the fridge to be nice and cold and my daughter could grab one when she wanted a drink. Definitely will buy

  26. Idodeclaire 26/06/2019 at 4:41 pm

    My 2 kids were not super keen on the pineapple flavour we received, and we still have half a box left. We use the empty containers as drink bottles for water once they have finished the contents. We have also used a couple as bubble snake makers with the end cut off and a sock put over the end. They are a great size and the kids like using the bottles, just not the flavour particularly. The apple flavour may have been more appealing and we will try it when we see it in store. This bottle was a good size for my almost 2 year old, and fine for my 4 year old although doesn’t quite hold enough to keep him going.

  27. Bfstlg 26/06/2019 at 4:39 pm

    Absolutely loved it. Great size amd taste. Didnt last long!

  28. BryarnNuju 26/06/2019 at 4:36 pm

    My son and my niece trialed the apple flavour, and my 5year old son really enjoyed liked it but unfortunately my 3year old niece didnt really enjoy it. My son was very excited that he was even taking it to school everyday and to his rippa rugby games. Was so cute watching him put one in the fridge the night before school and his games. Thank yous so much for allowing us to trail this product

  29. Tashakobe 26/06/2019 at 9:51 am

    My three girls trialed this product but only my 11 year old liked it. We received the Apple flavor, and I thought my two 4 year olds would really like it but neither of them did. Miss 11 loved it and ended up taking two to school each day until they were gone.

    We now use the empty bottle for drink bottles, perfect size for little hands, although not big enough for the bigger kids.

  30. Brenda Kidd 25/06/2019 at 6:02 pm

    We were emailed that we were chosen for this trial back in May and our two children were super excited to be part of it. Over the last couple of months our trial product failed to arrive and I had many emails back and forth checking on the progress of this product getting to us. Each time we were advised that it was on its way…. sadly for our two children this has never eventuated… so I have two very let down children. I wouldn’t bother putting our families name down for another trial – its upsetting for children to be told it was coming over again and for it not to happen. As a teacher I’m saddened that a company designed for families lets this situation happen and would also not advise from families to participate

    • SarahManukailea 25/06/2019 at 10:53 pm

      Yes sadly same thing has happened to us 🙄
