I was happy when Tommee Tippee contacted me and said I was chosen to review one of their Explora drinking cups. It was perfect because my son is still learning how to use a sippy cup and has been practising on many different types and brands for the last 3.5 months. I still had yet to come across one that wouldn't leak all over the place when he tipped it upside down and shook it around.
I was sent these ones. They come in a 2 pack and are brightly coloured with trucks and planes. Perfect for a little boy!
I washed one in hot soapy water then filled it with water and a little apple juice and we went out shopping. These cups are branded for 24+ months and my son is only 9 months but he figured out really quickly how to use it! I find that he won't use sippy cups that have a long spout, he'll just chew on them and he can use ones that have a straw but he ends up drinking too much and having it spill out of his mouth. The Tommee Tippee cup was perfect! There was no mess on his carseat and on himself.
The big test came later at dinner time. He took that cup and banged it on his highchair and shook it upside down trying to get the liquid out. Usually after dinner he needs to be changed and his chair washed as he gets juice/water all over the place but not that night! The juice/water stayed in the cup where it belonged and he took little sips as he wanted. I would recommend Tommee Tippee explora cups to anyone with little ones.
