drink up

We’ve tried all sorts of cups over E’s short life as you’ll know from previous reviews. We still use our E’s Tommee Tippee first cups for milk drinks in the bath to ensure E doesn’t end up wearing it (you know how toddlers love to pour!). We didn’t ever try the 12m+ range from Tommee Tippee having fallen in love with our Oxo Tots water bottle by then.   As we’ve lost that bottle now and been making do without a replacement we were quite happy when Tommee Tippee offered us an Explorer Active Sporty cup.

It claims to be truly non-spill and easy to drink from and it satisfies these claims unfailingly.  Aimed at 12m+ it has no lid or fiddly push/pull spout; it just seals automatically thanks to the Easi-Flow technology inside the top.  You don’t have to worry about accidents or your toddler needing to come and ask for a drink when thirsty at home.  And for going out and about the sporty can be tossed into a bag without releasing a single drop.PhotoGrid_1416955141290  Truly non-spill.
E enjoys drinking from his sporty cup and it holds a good volume of fluid (360ml) but for my busy toddler he seems to tire of the effort it takes to suck up smaller quantities of drink than the gulps he’d get from an open cup (always the downside of non-spill spouts).  Nevertheless it’s still a keeper as we find it brilliant for little pitstops while playing, drinking in the car and for playgroup where having an interesting picture on your bottle counts to a small boy!
sporty cupE is more inclined to sip little and often and then ask for a big drink when he really needs one so for encouraging independence and listening to his body we’re very happy to have the sporty cup in our cupboard.   And for mooches in the stroller, when he has all the time in the world, he loves to sit back and chill while supping from it, chewing the spout, waving at passers by …

Disclosure: We were sent the sporty cup to try. We were not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
