Every single time a new sippy cup arrives in the house, Juliette (now aged 6) gets all excited and begs to try it out ! She did the same thing this time, when we received the Explora Active Sporty Drinking Cup from Tommee Tippee - but 19-month-old Pierre is now old enough to fight his corner and realised it was supposed to be for him, so he got first try !
The recommended age is 18 months plus so the cup is much bigger than the usual sippy cups and trainer cups that he's been using, but the extra weight didn't seem to bother him and he found it easy to grip hold of. The generous volume is great for days out or long trips to the park in the warmer weather. The cup is spill proof but also leakproof which is great news if you keep it in your changing bag (even if I always put it in a plastic bag, just to be on the safe side - better safe than sorry !).
It's a great cup for the transition between teats/spouts and more grown-up straws, while keeping spillages to a minimum. It's also perfect for stashing in the pushchair for drinks on the go, although it doesn't have a retractable straw or spout cover like some models so is slightly less hygienic.
