The products: Nuby Step 3 No Spill Drinking Cups
I became aware Euna seemed to need more fluids than her Step 1 & 2 cups could give her and after a few steals of her baby friends' cups I realised she was ready for… A STRAW! Cue a colourful delivery from Nuby and the opportunity to test drive the next step: Step 3.
Firstly… Pathetic sniff at how un-bottle-like these cups are. These are genuine toddler cups. For waddling toddlers. Not for babies. *Nostalgic sigh* **Second backhand**
So! I got sent a few types of these… Some with handles, some with slide over lids and varying colours and shapes. Most importantly they all have the same rubbery straw that's flexible and soft in their mouth. The tip only opens if the straw is squeezed further down, this is what makes it "No Spill". And "No Spill" essentially for Euna means she can't pour it out all over the sofa and carpet and play splashy games in her new mini pool. It means I can leave it hanging around the lounge floor when she can pick it up and put it down when she needs without me having to supervise every sip. It also means, that despite some of them not having the slide over lids, that any of them can fall over in my nappy bag or footwell of the car and not pour out. Fab.
The colours are nice. A range of more pastel cups as well as bright neon colour cups are available.
Some have handles. Euna doesn't appear to have a preference between handles and no handles. On the handle ones they are removable though. I will advise that you need to make sure the handle is "clicked" into place where the thread of the screw top goes on, otherwise it does leak.
Price? Well right now the price is EXCELLENT! Nuby UK website have huge sale on and they start at £1.50!!! A fact I had no idea about until writing this review! What luck!
In practice they've been great. We switched her over in one go. The above picture with the pastel pink cup were her first try and below is 3 days later and she totally has the hang of the straw and most importantly keeping the cup down to get the water up the straw (as opposed to tipping it up to get it to mouth piece like with the Step 1 & 2s).
I'm giving away these four cups... One lucky winner will get 2 x Step 1 cups and another will get 2 x Step 3 cups. I will email the first winner drawn to give them first refusal on which they'd like...a Rafflecopter giveaway
