I have tried several cups for my daughter.We started out with sippy cups and moved on to a straw not to long after. Most of the cups made the claim leak or spill proof. However they leaked and wore out fast.The playskool flip top cup is the only cup I've tried that hasn't leaked! Not only does it have a really nice style to the cup that makes it easy for a toddler to hold but it has a cap that covers the straw. They come in different colors too! They even make the same cup in an insulated version.It's styled different and slightly larger.
The only downfall is they are only available through CVS or CVS.COM. I've searched several stores before finding out they are exclusively sold through the CVS company. I've even looked on Amazon and wasn't able to find the exact cup I was looking for. I would reccomend this cup to any new parent or caregiver. It's a great cup for transitioning from a sippy cup to straw or to use in general. Nubby makes a simliar cup but everyone I know that's had nubby has had the cups leak.Playskool did it though...a truely spill proof cup. This is the only style of strawed cup I will be using for my daughter for awhile. I really hope those of you who are looking for cups like this will consider this first. It's priced reasonable and might save you some time, money and aggravation later on.
