As a parent it is exciting to watch your kids learn new skills and reach new milestones, however the road to achievement is not always smooth and there can be some trial and error along the way. When Monkey was transitioning to sippy cups I tried several different products to try to find one that had a he liked, had a secure lid and cover and would not leak during travel. You would think that would not be too difficult. I was wrong. From covers that did not stay attached during travel, to lids popping off we had our share of spilled drinks. When it was time for Little Bear to transition to sippy cups I was determined not to make the same mistake twice. After doing some shopping we settled on the Playtex Anytime Straw Sippy Cup and have never looked back.
So what is it about the Playtex Anytime Straw Sippy Cup that I love so much? Where here are just a few key features:
- LEAK PROOF – with the twist n’ click lid you know when you have the lid on tight enough, and the cover easily slides over the straw to keep it from getting dirty or allowing any liquid to get out.
- Durable and lightweight – the Playtex Sippy Cups have stood up beautifully to the test of going to daycare with Little Bear to Daycare every day. They are light enough for him to handle with ease and show every little wear even with all the abuse they take from a toddler
- Easy to Clean & Dishwasher Safe – the Playtex Anytime Straw Sippy Cup easily comes apart for washing and cleans up beautifully. Even when filled with blueberry juice, after a quick wash there was no remaining smell or stains. The straw and lids fit perfectly into the Playtex SmartSpace Dishwasher Basket for easy cleaning in the dishwasher.
- Contoured Shape – Makes it easy for little hands to hold and gasp the cup to slide the cover open and closed
Transitioning to sippy cups with Little Bear was an easy and mess free process. And we don’t just use these cups for him, we also use them when we are out and about with Monkey too. When sitting at the dinner table Monkey gets a regular cup, but when out I don’t trust him not to spill his drinks everywhere, and he is quite happy to use a Playtex Anytime Straw Sippy cup while on the road.
Playtex Anytime Sippy Cups are available in a variety of formats including straw, spout and spoutless options. Plus you can also get insulated cups as part of the Playtex Playtime Sippy cup line to keep their drinks cold all summer long The Playtex Anytime Straw Sippy cup is the only one I grab when heading out the door with the boys, because I can feel confident that we won’t have any leaks or spills while we are out on an adventure.
