CLOSED ~ Tommee Tippee Explora Sippy Cup Review and Giveaway

Winner has been chosen and sent an e-mail.

I've seen plenty of sippy cups in my day. They come in all shapes, sizes, designs, price ranges. You name it, the stores have it.

The biggest problem I have faced when dealing with sippy cups is spilling. When I am in a rush (which is quite often), I just grab a few key items for the road and stuff them in my purse. For those who know me well, my purse is big enough to fit just about anything in there...and that includes a baby.

When I heard that Tommee Tippee, Britain’s #1 feeding brand, was finally available in the U.S., I wanted to see what all the talk was about.
About Tommee Tippee

Tommee Tippee, from the UK-based Mayborn Group Limited, the #1 brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain, is loved by parents and children alike and is one of the top brands of infant products and accessories in the global market. Tommee Tippee has received numerous brand accolades in Great Britain, including top ranks in the prestigious Mother and Baby Gold Awards – a head-to-head assessment of competitive products voted on by moms themselves. The Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature line of baby bottles has been chosen as Great Britain’s best baby bottle by The Mother and Baby Gold Awards: winning the category in 2006/7, 2008/9 and again in 2009/10. In 2009, Tommee Tippee was the first and only children’s feeding brand to be selected as a UK Superbrand in a nationwide poll of consumers, putting it on par with brands such as Microsoft®, Coca-Cola®, Nike®, Lego® and Google®.

 We were given the Explora Truly Spill Proof Sippy Cups to review. These sippy cups are: 
  • 2 x 11floz/ 325ml cups
  • Stage 2 cup
  • Advance-flo™ technology for easy drinking
  • Unique soft-flex spout protects gums
  • Easy to hold handles
  • Hygiene Cap
  • Truly non spill & leak proof
  • BPA Free

Iyana wasted no time using her cup. In fact, she noticed the bright colors before I even opened the pack. The colors are extremely vibrant and would be easy to locate if hidden in a diaper bag or found tossed on the floor of the house. They even have an adorable picture on the side. The pink/green sippy cups have fish or flowers on them.  The colors are reversed for each cup, so if you have 2 children, the cups will be different.

 I loved how easy it was to open the packaging. There was a tab on the sides that allows you to easily slide the cup out. The packaging also made it easy to take only one cup out and save the other for later if you chose to. There is a wealth of knowledge on the packaging as well. I was able to tell the stage of the cup, distinguished with words and pictures, the size, the product line name, and information on the function of the cup.

The are grips on the side of the cup so that even the tiniest of hands can hold it. There is even a place for the cap to rest when the child is drinking. This way you don't have to worry about ever losing the cap. It stays put and is connected.

There's not anything I do not like about the Tommee Tippee Explora Truly Spill Proof Cup. I would recommend anyone trying to make the transition from breast/bottle to cup to use this brand. You can even place it in the microwave and dishwasher. Busy moms should appreciate this. And the best part, the suggested retail price is only $7.99 for 2 cups. What a steal!

You don't have to worry about purchasing a set though. Tommee Tippee is giving one of my readers their own Explora Truly Spill Proof Sippy Cups.

Win: 1 pack of Tommee Tippee Explora Truly Spill Proof Sippy Cups in pink/green or blue/green (your choice).
