Believe the reviews, this cup is worthless
I saw this cup at Babies R Us and like other reviewers was fooled into the marketing words that were on the front. The concept sounded great and I’d like to get my 2 year old to just use regular cups so thought I’d give it a try. When I got home I read the reviews here and contemplated returning it (I’m one of those that buys only on reviews) but for the price (one-third of what you see here) I thought I’d give it a try. Big mistake!I’ve purchased several cups in the past year and kept all of them as they were all good in their own ways. This was the only cup I actually threw into the trash after one day.My poor daughter took to it immediately wanting to open up her new cup. She tried and tried with no luck as the water got on her clothes, in her eyes, and just about every other place except her mouth. I thought she was doing it wrong so I tried it so I could show her and in doing so realized how poorly designed this cup really was.First of all, it leaks. Second, there’s one small hole in the spout which you always have to position perfectly. If your 1 or 2 year old picks up the cup and just wants to drink, there’s a high chance the hole is not in the right place. And what kids can check that?This is by far the poorest designed cup on the market from what I’ve seen.
My baby LOVES this cup!
My ten month old daughter has refused just about every bottle on the market, just played with sippy cups, and only took a few sips from a straw cup. I tried the grow up cup, on a whim. Like others have said, it is much much cheaper at Babies R Us. She loves this one!My baby had no issue getting water out of it. I don’t really see the problems that others have claimed, regarding how hard it is to get water out of it. I wonder if it is because my daughter is breastfed, since nursing requires more work and stronger suction than bottle feeding. Either way, she figured it out right away and never had a problem with it.I haven’t had any issues with leakage either, beyond a few drops here and there. I tighten the cap strongly, but it’s important to make sure it is threaded properly. If it screws on unevenly, there will be a mess. The only time I have anything more than a few drops leaking is if she drops it on the floor from her high chair and even that isn’t bad at all. The cup has survived numerous falls, without cracking or breaking.The only thing I can say against it is that my daughter hates the handles, and pulls them off immediately. I don’t even bother putting them on the cup anymore.I recently tried the Avent 360 cup and that was a huge mess. Water Everywhere! The Sassy is a million times better.
Daughter HATES it
My 16-month-old hates this cup; she can’t figure it out. It frustrates her, and she refuses to use it and just throws it and cries when she sees it.I hate that I can’t figure out how to take it all the away apart to clean it (so one side always collects water in the dishwasher).We’re keeping it to see if she’ll grow into it, but I’m skeptical.
I read a bunch of reviews before purchasing and it was the design that caught my eyes at first.I honestly don’t know what other people’s problem is. I tried the cup, I had absolutely no problem getting any liquid out and neither does my son who is 16months old.My only problem with this cup is that if left sitting, the pressure from inside the cup I guess pushes the liquid up and out from whatever is left in the valve and process to leak out … other than that, the cup works and my son loves it.
Not as good as the 9 and 12oz cups
We own a couple of the 9oz and 12oz Grow Up cups for my 18 month old. She loves them! I decided to get a couple of the 7oz cups for variety. For some reason, the gasket on the 7oz cups does not fit as snuggly as the bigger cups, thus the 7oz cups leak much more easily. Also the material the gasket is made from seems much slicker that on the bigger cups. I don’t know the reason for this. The bigger size cups don’t leak.
