Sippy cups- they are either a lifesaver or the bane of my existence. All too often the cups that claim to be spill proof and leak proof are not. And then there’s my curious and destructive twins- if the spout is too squishy they’ll bite it right off. If it’s got a valve inside keeping it from leaking that isn’t securely fastened, they will bang the cups until the valve pops out so they can pour the liquid out of the cups. Then there’s the brands in which the lids snap on instead of screwing on. The boys will pop those lids off.
We have found the perfect sippy cups though in the Tommee Tippee Explora Sippy Cups. Now available at Target stores nationwide as well as Target.com, they are even easier to find. The valves snap in and are clipped in place so they don’t pop out unless you take them out- unlike some other brands.
Tommee Tippee cups are BPA- and phthalate-free, as well as dishwasher-safe- so not only are they easy for the kids to use without making a mess, but they’re also easy for us to clean. Additionally, the valve was designed by a physicist, so you know it’s good.
The cups we received are more like a regular, open cup than a sippy cup in shape. They still are spill and leak proof, but the way the lid is made encourages kids to drink as if it were a grown up cup. It’s perfect for this transition period!
Another great feature off these cups is the insulated design. The drinks stay cool, which is a must here in the hot southern summers.
If your kids are younger and need more traditional sippy cups, the Tommee Tippee Explora line has several styles available. Check them out at Target!
