Review: Tommee Tippee Explora Sippy + Giveaway!

Three Ring Circus Tommee Tippee Cups: we tried out the Sporty Bottle, on the right.
My three-year-old can drink from a regular cup easily enough, but he still knocks them over fairly often, so we often just use cups with lids at the table. Sippies are still the easiest thing to have on the go too, just like I use a bottle when I'm exercising.

So when I recently got the chance to test out some new sippy cups, I was happy to say yes. The cup we tried is made by Tommee Tippee, called the Explora Truly Spill Proof Sporty Bottle. I was sent two of the special edition Three Ring Circus design cups to try & we liked them. Here's why:

  1. Non-spill: We've used quite a few different brands over the last three years, but I have to say, these cups are the best that I've found for not leaking. No matter how hard I shook it upside down, nothing came out.
  2. Large size: My three year old sucks back milk & water like there's no tomorrow, so I find the size of these things mean a lot less refilling. The cups hold 11 ounces (about 310mL).
  3. Durable: No flip top lid to break off, no handles to crack, no squishy spout to chew through.
  4. Cute: I like the graphics & the look of the spout. It looks a little more like a 'grown up' sport water bottle than a baby cup.
  5. Safe: BPA-free & break-proof.
  6. Easy to use: They're leak-proof, but not really hard to suck a drink out of, like some of the valves we have on other cups. I think even my 5-month-old could probably get a drink from these cups easily. There's a two-piece valve assembly inside the Explora lid that pops out to clean, the same valve in all the different spout styles. That's it. No mechanism to get the spout open, no multiple part valves & straws that can be difficult to clean. Just a simple sippy cup that you grab & drink from. They're also easy to clean & dishwasher safe.
We liked the Explora Sporty Bottle best, but The Tommee Tippee sippies come in four different kinds. You can choose from different spout designs for different ages, as seen in the image above: the Truly Spill Proof Drink Cup, Truly Spill Proof Spout Cup, Truly Spill Proof Straw Cup, and Truly Spill Proof Sporty Bottle.

The Tommee Tippee Truly Spill Proof cups are available in packs of two at Babies R Us for $8.50.

Now that I've told you all about the Tommee Tippee cups, here's your chance to win a two-pack of them! You'll have several ways to enter--the more you do, the better your chances of winning! Good luck!
