  • My little one learned to drink from this cup at 6 months. A great first cup for learning how to drink with a straw! Mar 07, 2021

  • Used these to teach my son how to use a straw. You can squeeze them to get some water out, and it helped him figure out what he was supposed to be doing. They are a pain to clean however. Nov 24, 2020

  • Easy to hold. East to clean. Nov 16, 2020

  • Don't love it as much as the sippy cups but it works well. Aug 07, 2020

  • These were such a pain to put together and clean. So many little pieces to keep track of! I ended up tossing it after a month or so because i was over putting it together! Apr 23, 2020

  • I like how the handles are removable and it is easy to clean. I also like how it is spill free, even after being thrown or dropped. Jun 26, 2019

  • My daughter loves this cup! It’s the only thing she’ll drink out of sometimes. It also doesn’t leak for us! May 13, 2019

  • My son loves this cup it is the only one that i got him to use after transitioning him to a sippy cup. i just don't like how hard it is to clean. Jan 28, 2019

    I don't mind these but the straw leaks. They also leak if tipped to far. The lid is nice and the straw concept is nice. I prefer munchkin brand straw cups better. Aug 27, 2018

    the perfect straw cup for babies just learning. Dec 20, 2017

  • Great for starting with a cup that has a straw. Easy to hold. Can use without handles. Must put lid on correctly to prevent leaks. Jul 23, 2017

  • Another go to cup for our daughter, doesnt leak, and works for what we need May 11, 2017

  • Hard to get the top to click together just right. If it's not on there just right it will leak everywhere. Mar 08, 2017

    Nice cup, straw is very easy to lose. Luckily, it can be used without the internal straw; the cup just needs to be tipped up. Oct 04, 2016

  • We started using these cups and still use them to this day. practically spill proof and great for getting off the bottle. Oct 04, 2016

  • Babe (9m) loves it, it's durable, great size, and handles are good. Tough to get the lid on properly, have to check each time otherwise it leaks like crazy. Mar 05, 2015

    my LO learned to use this pretty quickly, but it leaks if he bangs it or drops it on the floor Dec 07, 2014

  • Great first cup. Oct 01, 2014

  • After a hard fall it has started to leak. Not the most durable Jul 30, 2014

  • PERFECT cup for little ones learning to use a straw. If you gently squeeze the bottom it will push out liquid through the straw which made it easier for my baby to learn how to use it. Jul 30, 2014

  • I found drinking out of this straw to be a challenge, so it doesn't fair well for my 12m old just learning. Jul 29, 2014

  • too hard for my son to use the straw. He through it off the dinner table and it burst open. Sippy cups should be a little more durable. Jul 23, 2014

  • Leaks! Not just at the straw but at the cap as well. And it smelled funky after only being used with water for a short time. You get what you pay for. May 01, 2014

  • I loved that I could squeeze the bottom to help my baby figure out that liquid came out of the straw. She never took a bottle so she learned to take a straw around 6 months thanks to this cup! Apr 28, 2014

  • this is the one where he learned to drink from a sippy cup. great. Apr 27, 2014

  • My baby doesn't understand quite how to use this, but it isn't a bad cup. He may start to understand it more soon. Doesn't leak. Apr 11, 2014

  • Leaks a lot unless baby holds it perfectly upright, which basically never happens. Apr 06, 2014

  • Love these!! Great. As of Early 2014 there is a new version, which is NOT as good. You can't tell if the cap will leak or not. it is still better than most out there but miss old one (pictured here Mar 24, 2014

    The first sippy cup my son tried at about 6 months and he learned to use it in about a week. Since then I've tried 4 other brands, but this is still my favorite (and his) Mar 10, 2014

  • Baby didn't take to this. Mar 03, 2014

  • Only good for room temperature liquids, otherwise it squirts out the straw. Feb 21, 2014

  • These can be a bit leaky - but they're great for learning how to drink. Feb 12, 2014

  • easy to grab, didn't leak, easy to clean. Feb 11, 2014

  • My EBF 8-mo sucks up too much water through this cup and tends to choke. Also, it leaks, not a lot but enough that there can be small puddles left behind. Love the handles. Feb 07, 2014

  • We tried a lot of different types of sippy cups when my son started daycare and this was a favourite. Jan 31, 2014
