So if you guys recall, I did a feature previously on the Tommee Tippee sippee cups. Moms around the world were claiming that these non-spill cups were prone to mold build up. Pictures circulated the net and the drama was rife. As you can believe, some moms were down right furious, while others were willing to give the popular baby brand another try. I fell into the latter group because I had always been a huge fan of their stuff. Their Closer To Nature bottles were a lifesaver when I struggled to transition Curly from breast to bottle. Sure, the hard to clean non-spill valves on the sippee cup was a concern for me too, but surely the clever people over at Tommee Tippee would do something about it. Right? Well…
I wrote in to Tommee Tippee South Africa and to say that they were helpful and quick to reply is an understatement. They were more than willing to listen to my concern and even sent me a pack of transparent valves to replace the older valves with. The transparency of the newer valves made it easier for me to make sure that the bottles were clean. But it was still just not enough.
A few months later, I was reintroduced to a snazzier, more hygienic Tommee Tippee sippee cup. And I was most impressed! For starters the cup has a brand new valve that is slimmer and easier to clean. It has a transparent cover that is removable and it is generally just a better design, when compared to the previous one. Very nice!
And secondly, the new cup styles are totally rockin’! They come in a range of bright colors and are designed to get your toddler to develop those grown-up drinking skills. Your toddler will agree – life is too short to be walking around with a boring sippy cup, yo!
Curly has been loving her Active Drinking Cup. It has a soft spout and easy grip sides. The Sports Bottle is also pretty rad! It has a non spill spout – like a “big people” sports bottle – and a 300ml capacity, to keep your toddie well hydrated. These cool new Tommee Tippee cups are all lightweight, BPA free and have an insulated base, to keep drinks cool.
In my most humblest spreadsheet brain opinion, I think that Tommee Tippee has totally redeemed itself with the new cup designs. They took their customer’s concerns into consideration (pulling thousands of the previous cups from store shelves) and gave us something that is a much better fit for our kids.
So what do you guys think? Would you give Tommee Tippee a try again? Moms who are TT fans, have you tried out their latest offerings? Drop your thoughts in the comment section.
