Giant Test Tubes (Baby Soda Bottles), 6/pk

Item# CE-TTBSB06

These clear, unbreakable baby soda bottles (also called giant test tubes) are great for kids! Use these "baby" soda bottles to mix, shake, show reactions, grow things in, or use as observation chambers. They function as a giant test tube, beaker, or storage bottle. The large threaded caps are easy for smaller hands to put on or take off – you can even use the cap as a base to stand the bottle for easy viewing.

We include a free activity guide for doing a variety of fun science experiments with baby soda bottles at home or in the classroom.

These can be used with our 5-hole plastic test tube rack.

Why are they called baby soda bottles?

These test tubes are actually the blanks or preforms used to make soda and water bottles. The preforms are typically injection-molded from the raw plastic pellets at a plastic products manufacturer and then shipped to large soda and water bottling plants. The bottling plant uses a blow molding machine to heat the preform and "blow" it into the shape of the finished bottle using compressed air. The finished bottle is then leak tested, filled with soda or water and capped. Shipping preforms instead of the finished soda bottles significantly reduces shipping expenses for the bottling plant. Our "baby soda bottle test tubes" are the kind of preforms used to make 1- to 2-liter soda and water bottles. They are made from polyethylene terephthalate (PET), a safe plastic used for beverage containers. The caps are specially designed to contain the pressure build up common to carbonated soda drinks.

Very Useful Review by
I ordered these primarily for teaching science to my preschool and kindergartner age boys. I like them for the following reasons. They are a great size for small hands to hold. They are almost indestructible, the boys can drop them and they will not break. When the cap is on they are spill-proof as well. Among other things we use them for color mixing lessons.

They are good for more adult hobbies as well. I have used them to hold specimens of insects when flyfishing, and most recently I have used them to collect oxygen and hydrogen during my electrolysis of water experiments.

Best of all, they are inexpensive.

Great for prep Review by
Water-tight, indestructible, nice size. These tubes are great for storing any supplies that will fit. I bought 6 and now need more! Millions of ideas for these.
Great tubes Review by
These tubes are really great. They are very durable and can have a million uses. They are air tight and just the right size for many experiments.
Crazy fast shipping Review by
I ordered these for storing emergency preparedness supplies. I had planned on using them for storing batteries and wondered what I would do with all 6. Now I am planning on buying more. These things are great and I couldn't believe how quickly I received them.
