Last month I posted a review for the bobble water bottle and one of the things I mentioned was that I couldn’t add ice cubes because of the bobble’s small mouth. Situation solved. Bobble now offers bobble ice, an ice tray that makes ice in a small bobble shape.

more information

bobble water is always healthy and free – now make it cold and refreshing too. each bobble ice tray makes 14 bobble-shaped frozen ice inserts, perfectly sized to fit into any bobble – 13oz./385ml, 18.5oz./500ml, 24oz./700ml and 34 oz./1L.

bobble ice will bring a shiver to your filtered water even on the hottest days. removing ice is easy – just push up under the flexible, soft forms and the ice pops out. the colorful, food grade, BPA-free plastic tray is dishwasher safe and features a built-in reservoir to help prevent spills. stackable for freezing, too! buy a couple and you’ll always be ready to chill.

Here’s what I think:

It’s great. My bobble ice is the pretty magenta and blue color. In addition to using the ice in my bobble water bottle, I use the bobble shaped pieces in everyday cups. They are easy to release with a push from underneath. Surprisingly, I once removed my bobble ice in an incredible flip that took the ice straight from the tray to the cup. It is possible!  (Children should get parents permission first before trying this) The ice is small so it does start melting faster than traditional sized ice cubes. I recommend filling the tray slowly with water as the little shapes fill up fast.

This is a positive review for bobble, a reusable water bottle with a built in carbon filter, for helping reduce the mass consumption of single serve water bottles.  I found that it saves money, reduces waste, and is a user friendly way to drink refreshing tasting water.

My medium size (8.5 oz.) bobble with a green filter.

Here are some of the things I’d like to mention after using my bobble for a few months. The good being that it contains its own filter which is attached to the sport cap. It is recyclable and made from recycled plastic. It is made in the USA and is free of BPA, phthalates, and PVC. The bobble comes with its first filter and replacements are available. One bobble filter equal about 300 water bottles. The filters come in a variety of single colors and multi-colors !

I have nothing bad to say about it but there are some things that I could mention after using it. First, the sports cap makes a bit of a noise when drinking. It comes with a clear cap protector that I’d consider an easy to loose item. The mouth of the bottle is small so you can’t add ice cubes. And, water is the only thing you can use in the bobble due to the carbon filter. (no ice tea, no juice, etc.)

The bobble design is good for situations that require the need to filter water. If good clean drinking water is usually available to you, then the bobble’s filter design wouldn’t be necessary and a regular reusable water bottle would be fine.

The medium bobble is 9.99 and all filter sizes are 6.99. Free shipping is available on every order over $20.

My recommendations for future bobble designs would be to make the cap a twist open style and the bottle to be stainless steel to be more durable.
