Stephen Joseph’s Bottle Buddies ($7) are a perfect fit for a plastic or reusable water bottle and kids can carry their own. They come in more than 20 styles and each has dangly legs, arms, wings or even a lion’s mane.

Four new ones include a mermaid, a pirate, a flower and a dancing hippo. They’re totally practical for a trip to the zoo on a hot day.
