The Clever Bit

Unlike other valve systems our active sensor valve is designed by a physicist to be both so sensitive that liquid flows on demand, yet truly spill and leak proof

Our Thoughts:

The first thing the boys noticed about these cups was their cool Trucks and Airplanes. B wanted to use it "right now". So we washed them up and away we went. 

B caught on fairly quickly with the new cups. They are very different than the cups he is used to but it did not seem to cause any major problems for him.

C took a little longer to catch on. Let me state that C is not quite old enough for the cups (they say 24+ months) and that he is behind anyway due to his tongue tie issues. C got very frustrated at first because of course he wants to do everything Big Brother does. It took about 3 tries of using the cup, we would eventually take it away from him because he is not always nice when he is frustrated, but he did figure it out and now uses his cup like a pro. 

The biggest problem I have with the cups is that they are large. The amount they hold is not much more then the cups the boys usually use but because of the insulation it makes the cups larger for them to hold. This is not a bad thing but these cups are not the ones I keep in the diaper bag because having two of them takes up way too much room. You can see in the photos how big these cups are compared to B. 

I do however love these cups. They are very sturdy and have washed up wonderfully. It is also nice that the boys like the colors and pictures so much. 

If you are looking for a great set up cups make sure you check our Tommee Tippee HERE. I will be shopping Tommee Tippee again soon when I stock up on bottles before Baby D gets here.
