I saw this item when it aired on Shark Tank and just loved the concept of the weighted straw as my 1 yr old at the time always had milk left over in her sippy cups and could never finish the whole thing when tilted. I subsequently had twins and when they were able to drink from a straw, I decided to take the plunge and spend the $60+ dollars for the sippy cups. I just loved the idea until I got them and my twins who got accustomed to harder to drink straws were choking on the fast flow. This product is not good for little kids who turn things upside down and throw things around as it leaks way too much. My now almost 4 year old can drink from it no problem but now she can drink from a regular cup so not really of use for her now. I wish I hadn't spent so much money on leaky cups although if you can fix the leaks and slow down the flow just a little, it would be a great product!

Returning. Unlike the Zoli cup, this doesn't work if you turn it upside down. Also leaks everywhere.
I would have liked a choice of color since one was going to a boy
About the product: This product contains a weighted straw that is not rigid and does not need to be bitten to work. It also contains a flip lid to cover the straw when not in use. The handles are easily removed and re-attached. This product, as a whole, is extremely easy to take apart and put back together. Cleaning: Cleaning is easy and a cleaning brush is provided. Personally, I prefer throwing everything in the dishwasher, however, I do hand wash this item. Therefore, I do not consider this "easy to wash" when it comes to satisfying my laziness, but it is "easy to wash" when it comes to hand-washing if you are willing to do that. Durability: When used as intended, this product is durable though it does leak in certain positions. My 15-month-old, however, isn't so delicate with things and decided to throw his onto the floor from his high chair. The top plastic pieces that make up the bird's head feathers broke right off. The rest of the product remained in tact. Therefore, this product may not be for those who might be inclined to throw things. Summary: I purchased this item looking for a sippy cup that has a straw, is leak-proof, easy to clean, and durable. This product has a straw and is relatively easy to clean, but it can leak and break in the right toddler hands. Compared to many other products I've tried that were awful (the worst of which, in my opinion was the Nuby No-Spill Flip-it Cup), I am satisfied with my purchase.
Easy to use, very lightweigh and easy to clean. I especially like the curved brush that cleans the straw. My great-grandson thinks it's a bird and calls it "birdy".

Use with my grandson when he visits. His mom uses everyday. Really works as described...baby can drink all that is in the cup.
I had been eyeing these for a while, and I've been very happy with the usability of the cup so far. My 13 mos. old son loves using it. The only complaint is that due to the straw design, water can escape the straw (even when the lid is closed) if he shakes it or if it is left upside down.

This cup looks great and works even better! The handles are removable so it travels well, and the big opening makes it easier to clean through the crevices. I also like the fact that there's no valve yet it still won't spill in my diaper bag.

saw my grandson use this w/ease. Didn't have to tilt head to drink the entire cup. Didn't drip or leak anywhere. Cute to boot! Wish it came in other colors.

My granddaughter uses the cup during meals and for snack time. She is one year old, and had a little difficulty adjusting to the straw. I wish we had started her using this cup much sooner!
