The title of this sounds really boring I know as how can a cup be exciting but if your a Mummy that finds baby and toddler stuff exciting then read on.... :)
So a little while ago I was contacted by a company called OXO (no not the gravy people, although I will admit, this was my first thought too!) asking me to review their toddler cup from their OXO tots range. OXO was created in 1990 by Sam Farber, an entrepreneur in the homeware industry who wanted to create a range of comfortable kitchen tools that could be used by everyone. They then introduced the OXO tot range with the aim of making feeding little ones a little bit easier and a lot more fun and after using their sippy cup I would give them a high five as I think they have achieved this!
This cup, in my opinion, is no normal sippy cup. One first looks, yes it looks like one. It has the soft, non slip handles that are curved to help little hands hold on to it. It has the traditional sippy cup lid with an additional leak proof valve which can be inserted and removed to give either a controlled or free flow and its dishwasher safe, BPA, PVC and Phthalate free which are all fantastic features but in my opinion, not unique or game changing.
The only downside with this cup..and it pains me to say there is a downside as I honestly love the thought that has gone into this product..is that is doesn't cup with a lid whilst it is being used as a sippy cup. It is fine if you have the non spill valve in but Bubs doesn't drink it with that in and only drinks out of free flowing cups which means that this cup can't come out and about with us as it spills in the bag.
Apart from the minor thing, this cup is brilliant. It adapts and changes as your baby grows and has features which to me, makes in stand out in a busy sippy cup market.
To purchase your own sippy cup (RRP of £10.20 which to me is a bloody bargain for a cup that will last this long) or to see the range of OXO tot goodies then click here!
NOTE: THIS CUP WAS SENT TO US FOR THE PURPOSE OF REVIEW BUT ALL OPINIONS IN THIS POST ARE MY OWN AND TOTALLY HONEST
