Kid-Tested: The Lollacup Sippy Cup

One day my daughter just decided she didn’t want a bottle anymore. I was thrilled I wouldn’t have to wean, but little did I know what an adventure finding a suitable sippy cup would be.

I started with a few straw models, but my daughter hated them. She could never seem to get anything out, partly because I could never figure out how or where to puncture the darn things. Eventually I found a regular spout sippy cup she liked, but taking that away from her–she’s 2 1/2–has been a headache.

So I decided to try introducing a straw cup again. Maybe if she gets used to a straw sippy cup, the next step is drinking from a straw in a regular cup, right? When I was offered the opportunity to test the new Lollacup sippy cup, I knew this was my chance to try kicking the old cup to the curb.

I introduced my daughter to her new Lollacup last night and I can’t even begin to tell you what a huge success it was. I think the design of the cup definitely helps because my daughter was fascinated by the little character painted on the top. I filled it up, flipped the top and guess what? My little girl didn’t even think twice about using the straw. There’s was no struggling to get the milk up and even better, when my daughter dropped the cup, milk didn’t go flying everywhere. I think we’re both obsessed now.

Some other things you should know:

  • The cup is BPA- and phthalate-free.
  • The handle comes off so you can put the cup in most cup holders.
  • Because the straw doesn’t have any valves, children as young as 9 months can suck from the straw without any trouble.
  • It’s easy to clean! It even comes with a straw-cleaning brush.

Price: $18
