I must admit I was not too sure what I would use these for when I got them but my family has since offered many uses. The kids have each claimed one, use them at every meal, and want to carry them everwhere! (I have picked up a set of small carabiners to compliment them.) I have two stowed away in my vehicle as you never know when you will need a straw. I plan to get another set to keep with our camping gear.
Each silicone straw comes in it's own container, small enough to hide anywhere, and comes with a cleaning wand all to help keep it sanitary. Each straw has built-in folding points to make it easy to put them back in their containers. Another added benefit is that given they are reusable it makes for one less plastic straw in our environment!
Overall we are happy with these straws.
