Tommee Tippee has been the #1 brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain and they have just launched their Closer to Nature bottles and accessories as well as their BPA-free Explora toddler cups and feeding accessories, here in the U.S.!
We recently had the opportunity to try out the New toddler cups and I feel like I could start and end this review with one simple sentence: The Cups DO NOT leak! As a mom, I want to know two things when purchasing a toddler cup:
- Is it safe? Tommee Tippee’s Closer to Nature and Explora lines are BPA-free..enough said!
- Does it leak? There’s nothing worse than letting your kids loose with a toddler cup and soon finding drops of juice all over your carpet and couch. For this reason, it’s imperative for our girls to use cups that will assure me that they are not going to leak and Tommee Tippee has delivered! In fact, Tommee Tippee’s Explora line of toddler cups feature advance-flo valves that were designed by a physicist to require no force to drink. This makes the transition from bottle to cup easy, while still remaining leak proof!
We took the Trainer Cup (stage 1) and the Drinking Cup (stage 5) both on a test run. Both cups feature soft spouts to protect the child’s gum and mouth and are dishwasher safe..yippie! The stage 1 trainer cup offers handles for little hands to grip on to and bright colors to keep them interested. The stage 5 drinking cup holds quite a bit of liquid and is insulated to keep drinks cold.
Big Pea is getting older and a sippy cup is just not cool anymore. The stage 5 drinking cup offers a non-sippy cup experience that is truly leak proof and is contoured so that it can be easily gripped. Lil’ Pea isn’t quite ready to transition to a “big girl” cup, so the stage 1 trainer cup proved to be the right cup for her. The girls both love their new cups and mom and dad love them more, knowing they are not going to leak!
You can purchase Tommee Tippee products exclusively at BabiesRus and the product line will be available in ToysRus stores by April! 1 cup will run you just $4.99 and a 2-cup pack will run you just $7.99! We love, love, love this low price point!
