Tommee Tippee Sippy Cups Review & Giveaway!

We go through sippy cups like some people go through paper towel. It seems like I am constantly buying new ones - always on the look out for that elusive "perfect" sippy cup. I admit, I am one of those moms who requires my children to use a sippy cup well into their preschool years. Actually Trevor is 6.5 yrs old and still will ask on occasion to use a sippy cup.

So, you can imagine how excited I was when I was given the opportunity to review the "Tommee Tippee Explora Sippy Cups". "Tommee Tippee" happens to be the #1 feeding brand in Great Britain. I am excited to see that they are now available to those of us here in the USA.

Tommee Tippee, from the UK-based Mayborn Group Limited, the #1 brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain, is loved by parents and children alike and is one of the top brands of infant products and accessories in the global market. Tommee Tippee has received numerous brand accolades in Great Britain, including top ranks in the prestigious Mother and Baby Gold Awards – a head-to-head assessment of competitive products voted on by moms themselves. The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature line of baby bottles has been chosen as Great Britain’s best baby bottle by The Mother and Baby Gold Awards: winning the category in 2006/7, 2008/9 and again in 2009/10. In 2009, Tommee Tippee was the first and only children’s feeding brand to be selected as a UK Superbrand in a nationwide poll of consumers, putting it on par with brands such as Microsoft®, Coca-Cola®, Nike®, Lego® and Google®.

As I said, we were sent the "Tommee Tippee Explora Sippy Cups" and they are quite fabulous! I finally found a cup I love!

  • 2 x 11floz/ 325ml cups
  • Stage 2 cup
  • Advance-flo™ technology for easy drinking
  • Unique soft-flex spout protects gums
  • Easy to hold handles
  • Hygiene Cap
  • Truly non spill & leak proof
  • BPA Free

The Clever Bit

Unlike other valve systems our active sensor valve is designed by a physicist to be both so sensitive that liquid flows on demand, yet truly spill and leak proof.

These cups are both microwave AND dishwasher safe! That right there is a huge bonus! Sometimes the kids will ask me to make hot chocolate and of course, with small children, you don't want something piping hot but being able to warm it a bit right in the cup in the microwave is a major plus. 

I'd really highly recommend these sippy cups. We've had them since last week and we've had not one spill...and trust me Victoria is infamous for leaving a sippy cup here or there and half the time on it's side. Another thing that I really like about these cups is that little protective cover piece - Vicky closes it after each time she drinks, which is peace of mind for me that her cup is still clean! The valve inside the lid is is super easy to clean, which for this busy mom is another huge plus. And on a purely cosmetic note, I adore the simple design and pretty colors. 

You can find these cups at Babies R Us and Toys R Us in a 2pk for $7.99.
And you can also get them in blue/green in addition to the pink/purple!
