You may have noticed these sippys on a banner on our right hand side bar for a couple of weeks now.. if not, I'd like to tell you more about them.
These brand new Fun Flashing Sippee Cups are 100% BPA free and are CPSIA certified. The multi-colored LED lights automatically light up and flash when the cup is tipped up.The lid, leak guard and cup are all 100% dishwasher safe, and the bottom base is removable before washing. Batteries are included and replaceable with a small screwdriver, although we've had our Fairies Cup flashing almost non-stop since we've received it and have had no problems with the batteries included. All three designs are available at Toys R Us.
When we received the info on this new style of sippy cups, it read, "The Fun Flashing Sippy Cup is soon to become your child’s favorite cup." After reading it I giggled, knowing how many times I've 'heard that before'.. There was only one sippy cup that I could use with my son- and we used it until they changed the style.In total, it was about 3 years we used that brand, because he was about 4 when we stopped using it. With Abbigaile, we had one brand that we used, but their prices have been hiking a lot lately, so I've been on the quest to find a new sippee, one that doesn't leak, and one that is sturdy enough to withstand the beating my little lady will deal it. I hate sippee cups that leak- it's a peeve of mine.. I mean, really- what's the point? I might as well mop up spilled milk from a cup than from a sippee.
Anyway, back to the review-
I received the Fun Flashing Sippy Cup in the adorable pink Fairies design. I read the directions, and was excited that the cup was dishwasher safe. The battery compartment is easy for adults to remove, but difficult for children. The only way that you can get into the batteries themselves is with a screwdriver. It looks very well made, with the safety of children in mind.
Abbigaile saw it flashing from the hallway, and wanted to try it out that night. From that moment on, it did become her favorite cup of all! She doesn't leave this cup anywhere too long, without realizing that she doesn't have it.. if it falls in the car, the motion of the car makes the lights go on, so you can find it quickly, and when it's getting too dark, or you're in a place where the lights might be distracting, you can simply shut the lights option off.
Aside from the super cool flashing lights, Abbigaile and I both love the fact that even though she's thrown it, dropped it, stepped on it, fallen with it, and it's been washed a gazillion times, all of the seals are still just as strong as day one. It doesn't leak from the spout or around the top, and it hasn't cracked or chipped from any of the aforementioned incidences. I love this sippy cup, and so does she.
