Sippy cups are part of my everyday life. And I can tell you many things that drive me crazy about the vast majority of them. I hate cups that have a million pieces not only because I will inevitably lose them, but also because when my kids decide to launch their cups across the room the valve WILL pop out and then the leaking starts. Not to mention that the leaking usually happens regardless if the valve pops out or not. Sippy cups and me? Ya, we are not best friends. Well that is until I found the Magical Color Changing Sippy Cups made by The First Years.
My girls are both huge fans of Toy Story so I knew they would be so excited to try out these cups. Plus they are also available in Cars 2, Disney Princess, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Minnie Mouse, and Disney Fairies. So are you wondering what makes these sippy cups so much better than the ones that I want to throw out the window or directly in the garbage can? Well you are in luck because I am gonna tell ya, hehe.
The part that is going to make both you and your kiddos happy is the magical color changing feature. When a cold beverage is added to the cup it magically changes color and then fades back to normal as the drink reaches room temperature. Plus the cups keep drinks cooler longer thanks to the double wall insulation. This is absolutely perfect if your kids like to drink milk because you will know when it is no longer cold! To get the best color changing effect it is recommended that you run the cups through the dishwasher at least once. They are top rack dishwasher safe, but be prepared for the images to gradually fade if you wash them that way regularly. How awesome is this color changing feature though?
And now for the feature that makes momma happy! The lid is one piece. That’s right – you won’t find a million pieces in there that all need to be configured together and inserted in the lid for the valve system to work correctly. Instead with the Easy Clean Valve System the valve is built right into the lid AND the lid is dishwasher safe – YAY!! This means that even if my kids launch their cups across the room the valve will not come out and that makes me so happy. And I have never had any leaking issue with these cups and we have used them many many times.
Alleigh and Kaelyn definitely approve!
