The G Cap **REVIEW**

The G Cap **REVIEW**

I always love an innovative new product, especially if it makes my life easier. So when I was contacted to review the G Cap I was intrigued. Named after the designer Nadine’s son Giovanni, the G Cap is a stretchable, reusable bottle cap cover, that prevents spills. Genuis.

You basically cover the bottle in question with the cap, add a straw and you are away.

Best if all the cap is non-toxic and food safe and is free of BPA, PVC and Phthalates (basically the stuff you don’t want kids products to be made out of!)

You can also bung it in the dishwasher (has to be for a lazy bum like me) and it comes with a neat little travel case. In the US it retails for $6 so is a little bargain.

I’m not sure what your little ones are like but the gremlin is a nightmare at wanting anything that is mine! She could have her Vimto lovingly prepared in her cup but when she sees my bottle of water; of course she wants to drink that. A 2.5 year old and an open top bottle?! Recipe for a spill. She’s not a juice or fizzy drink girl thankfully but the cap could quite neatly fit over a small bottle of fresh juice if you were out and about, or in a cafe.

The gremlin didn’t try and pull the cap off or mess with it which was great.

You can see her below enjoying some of my water (she is a bit ill here, hence the tired look!)

I was really impressed with The G Cap. Β I will be slipping it into my bag when we go out and about and if she fancies a bottle of water in the lounge, I don’t have to worry.

If you are a bit of a neat, anti-spill Mummy, this is the product for you!

    This is such a great idea! My two are a nightmare for spilling. It would also be really good in the car I guess? Can you literally put it on it’s side and it won’t spill? Thanks for linking up with us! #bigpinklink

    I could really do with one or hundreds of these. I’m so fed up of ‘non-spill’ cups that leak everywhere or kids pouring drink down themselves or leaving a delightful food wash back in my drink. Want! Xxx

    This looks like a great idea. My two love drinking with straws, but it usually ends in tears! (Mine!) #bestandworst

    When we go out and about my kids don’t usually get anything but water. That way if it gets spilled it just dries without any sticky mess. But this is a fab creation. I hated the days of sippy cups. Seems like I was always finding one that had been lost in the car somewhere and had a foreign substance that had grown in it. Again, thanks for hostessing #bestandworst!

    Sounds like a great idea. Our bottles usually get launched across the room at some point when having a tantrum so this would definitely help #bestandworst

    That sounds like a nifty little product – what a good idea, especially for little ones. Having said that, even Jet could do with this – drinking out of bottles can be tricky (actually, I could do with one too!)

    Sounds like a very neat invention, I think most of the ones usually created by mum are πŸ˜‰ Sounds like the perfect thing for toddlers, my little one is exactly the same and wants to drink my water and/or out of grown up bottles like mummy or daddy so I could see this being very handy! Bless the little lady with her tired eyes, I hope shes feeling much better now πŸ™‚ Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Emily

    What a fab idea! T often wants to drink out of normal bottles now but it’s such a pain to avoid spilling. Great idea πŸ™‚

  17. March 29, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    This looks like a decent product I’ll check for it online. Plus drinking through straws is so much better for the little ones teeth #bestandworst
