It doesn’t take long to get fed up with leaky sippy cups.
We’ve had our fair share of them along the way, and I have no patience with them. Much of our house is carpeted, and my girls carry their drinks around with them everywhere. With the everyday messes we already have to deal with, all I need is one more spill on the carpet to clean up, so leaky sippy cups get chucked into the trash pretty quickly.
Tommee Tippee has made a truly spill-proof sippy cup line with their Explora cups! With models for each stage as your baby grows and matures into sippy cup use, the Explora line will keep you outfitted from 7 months all the way up until they’re drinking from adult cups!
We reviewed the Explora Drinking Cup, their final stage of sippy cup, designed for 24 months and up. The sipper spout helps develop your toddler’s open-cup drinking action, training them for eventual use of adult cups. Although it says it’s for 24+ months, our 18 month old has no more trouble than our 3-year-old using these! She loves to feel like a big girl, sharing Katie’s sippy cups, so she is please to get in on the action with these cups.
I love that it’s insulated to keep drinks cool. We have regular long car trips to and from church, where we spend almost all day every Sunday. Having a sippy cup that can keep Katie or Victoria’s milk cold for extended periods is a must!
Tommee Tippee’s valve design is what makes it so uniquely spill-proof. It took me a second to figure out how it all went together, (looking at the directions helps, duh!) but once I had it, it was a piece of cake. The main thing I am concerned about and see as the only con to these cups is the multiple parts. I have enough trouble just keeping a lid and cup together with our other (leaky) cups, so I’m worried that one of these little pieces is going to end up lost. I was glad to find out that you can buy replacement valve parts, in-stores at Babies R Us or online at Amazon.com.
You can find the Tommee Tippee Explora line in-stores at Target and online at Target.com.
(Katie saw these girly ones on my screen just now and said, “I want *those* princess cups!)
