Tommee Tippee®, from the UK-based Mayborn Group Limited, is the number-one brand of infant and toddler feeding products in Great Britain. Since 1965, Tommee Tippee has earned a reputation for its clever ideas, product quality and simply intuitive designs that promote natural development at every age, stage and feeding need. Today, Tommee Tippee innovations provide comfort for babies and peace of mind for parents in 45 countries around the world.
We were fortunate to receive a 2-pack each of the Explora Truly Spill Proof Trainer Cup and the Explora Truly Spill Proof Sippy Cup.
Explora is a progressively staged feeding range, promoting seamless transitions from first sips & tastes to freedom in independent feeding & drinking. Our superior advance-flo(tm) technology guarantees easier, super sensitive drinking without spills or leaks and the feeding products are intuitively designed for less mess and stress.
The Trainer Cups are very similar to the Sippy Cups, except for the fact that they have handles. Since Smiley Boy has already been drinking from sippy cups for several months now, he's been using the Sippy Cups more.
Smiley Boy appeared to have no problems drinking from the Explora Sippy Cup, no matter if we put milk, juice, or water in it. I can't tell whether he has an easier time drinking from the cup versus from other sippy cups, but as long as he's drinking, that's a good sign.
I like a lot of features of the Explora Sippy Cups--they're BPA-free, they come in bright fun colors, are easy to clean, and there's a handy hygiene cap that is connected to the cup and does not hinder drinking. The cap is a great idea, especially since whenever we're on playdates kids are notorious for picking up other kids' cups and drinking from them.
Another great feature is how liquid does not leak from the spout. I've turned it upside down myself and was impressed that no liquid comes dripping out.
I did notice, however, that the cup can leak liquid when on its side. Smiley Boy loves throwing his cups on the ground, and I've noticed several times that liquid has leaked out from between the cup and the lid. No matter how tight I close the lid, liquid always seems to come out, but fortunately it's not that much liquid.
I think it's great that Tommee Tippee products have been introduced to the US, and I can't wait for Smiley Boy to try out their other drinking products!
