Klean Kanteen 18oz (532ml)

Lightweight and portable - stash it in your bag and off you go

Like every Klean Kanteen the 18oz is made from fully recyclable, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel, a metal that's safe and totally free of BPA and other toxins, so it doesn't need to be lined like aluminium bottles.

The large-mouth design makes it easy to pour in ice cubes or a smoothie packed with frozen berries. Cleaning the 18oz bottle is as easy as giving it a quick scrub or if you have a brushed stainless finish you can safely run it through the dishwasher. It's also durable enough to last years and will never retain or leach flavours. No matter how many times you refill it, no matter what you put into it, the drinks in your Klean Kanteen Classic will always taste just right.

The Klean Kanteen Sports Cap 3.0

not leakproof

The 3.0 sport cap has a soft silicone spout and a silicone valve, this results in quieter performance, a higher flow rate, and more comfortable drinking! The caps are dishwasher safe - we recommend giving them a good rinse with diluted vinegar which will prevent any bacterial or mould growth. These caps do need replacing periodically, especially if the silicone spout is being repeatedly pulled open by the teeth which can cause tearing in the silicone over time. Made from polypropylene (pp#5) and silicone - free from BPA and toxins.

Please note that the 3.0 sports cap is NOT leak proof - if upside down on left lying on it's side water will drip out of the silicone valve.

For a completely leak-proof bottle opt for the stainless steel loop cap or the poly loop cap. For a bottle with a 100% stainless steel interior opt for the stainless steel loop cap.

For more details on the Klean Kanteen please see our FAQ or our Klean Kanteen page.

Protecting the paint on coloured bottles

When Klean Kanteen developed their coloured bottles, the most important thing was to find a safe and durable paint that also looked dynamite. They reviewed and tested dozens of different paints and selected an acrylic paint that contains no toxins or lead. Just like anything that's painted, it is possible to chip or scratch the paint on your coloured Klean Kanteen bottles. To prolong the life of your paint, hand wash your bottle and don't use abrasive agents to clean it. Please note coloured bottles and stainless caps are NOT dishwasher safe.

Grimms Wooden Pebbles

These wonderful sets of stacking pebbles by Grimm's, Spiel and Holz Design are hand crafted in Europe. They base the development of their toys on the philosophy of Waldorf Education. Their wooden toys are designed to help children discover and develop their own creativity and sensory awareness with products that want to be touched again and again which communicate their credo: Joy through colour!

These gorgeous toys are made using alder, lime, maple and cherry wood. Wood is natural, regenerative and stimulates the senses. It has texture, sounds different and smells good. Bacteria cannot reproduce on wood. This all is not true for plastic or metal. All dyes used are water based and are non toxic, as is the natural oil used.

Available in three sets - 'Moss', 'Fire' and 'River', each set contains 4 smooth wooden pebbles stained with water based colour which allows the true beauty of the texture and grain of the wood through for a wonderful tactile and sensory experience.

Please note: as Grimm's uses non-lacquered wood, some paint transfer can occur during play. This is considered normal. Non-lacquered wood has a lovely texture - the rough texture of the stained wood is not only an important tactile sensory experience for children, but those rough surfaces makes it possible to build in many more different ways, because the parts do not slide down so easily as the wood surface is still natural and not covered with a layer of bright enamel; however if you are concerned about paint transfer we suggest you purchase another item that is lacquered to be on the safe side.

Solvej Baby and Toddler Swing

Slate Grey Solvej Swing

Made in New Zealand

  • Indoor and outdoor use

  • Age 6mths - 6yrs

  • Convertable from baby to toddler version

  • Easy to clean

  • Easy to move

  • Extremely safe (exceeds EU safety standards)

  • Easy height adjustment

  • 9 year warranty

  • Weight up to 40kg

  • Packs flat

This Solvej swing is an exclusive and attractive baby and toddler swing for the home environment, indoors and out, skillfully crafted with top quality materials.

The swing converts from a baby swing to a toddler swing using the domed leg divider when your toddler is around 3 years old. This makes the swing suitable from approximate 6-months to 6 years (from when the baby can sit up unaided to the weight of 40kg/88lbs.) It is very easy to make the change between baby and toddler versions if you have both a baby and toddler in the home. The unusually long period you and your child can use this swing makes it excellent value for money.

It is an extremely safe swing for your baby with its safety belt and closed hooks and screw eyes. The beads are coloured with non-toxic acrylic water bound paint and the lacquer which comply with DIN EN 71 part 3 standard for toxicity and DIN 53160 for sweat and saliva resistance.

This swing has been designed for both indoor and outdoor use with carbine hooks and screw eyes for easy transition between the two. The Solvej Swings are made from Matai(Prumnopitys taxifolia), a native and endemic tree to NZ. The Matai used is salvaged timber, along with rot proof canvas, 10mm yachting braid and stainless steel fittings the swing is well equipped to handle the outdoor elements. Conveniently designed the swing packs down flat for easy storage and transport.

Benefits of swinging

The most obvious benefit is that swinging is fun and exciting. The feeling of being weightless for a split second at each end of the pendulum, feeling the wind as you accelerate down, hitting the bottom of the pendulum in full speed with the extra g-force on your body is exciting. To laugh and be happy is most beneficial to both our physical and mental health.

There are some hidden benefits that the children won't know about but we as parents can appreciate;

Eye Development
Focusing: The development of changing the depth of focus has already started at 6 months and is basically completed during the baby's second year. Swinging is one of the most excellent ways of helping to develop this ability and exercise it as the baby is moving back and forth constantly changing the depth of focus.

Balance
Eyes and ears are major organs when it comes to balance. When swinging it is not only the eyes that are trained and exercised but also the fluid in the inner ear is constantly swirling back and forth, which is great for the development of balance. When swinging your baby is not only leaning front wards and back wards she/he is also moving back and forth and up and down.

Coordination
To get oneself swinging only by moving ones body is harder than it looks. At the age of about 4 years old a child can swing by themselves and swinging is super for learning and training full body coordination.
