it takes work to get it to not leak
in the beginning it worked well. now, several months later, I can no longer get the yellow sippy part to insert properly into the lid so that it will screw on properly. when I do get the thing together (and, there are four parts: 1. the cup, 2. the lid with handles, 3. the yellow soft part that inserts into the lid, and 4. the little white thing that snaps onto the underside of the yellow part of the lid that keeps water from leaking out unless sucked out). as I was saying, when I do get it together now, it leaks. it’s really hard to get the yellow sippy part to snap exactly into the blue part so it doesn’t leak. it’s a great product & has good grips for the kids. It’s just that… I can’t get it together anymore. I’ve tried and tried. there’s nothing defective with mine. …it’s just that when you disassemble the whole thing in to four parts in order to run it thru the dishwasher, it is near impossible to get it back together so it won’t leak. (specifically, it’s hard to get the yellow bendable thing back into the lid the right way. Oh, and it’s hard to screw it together so it won’t leak.but on the positive side, it’s awesome that it’s bpa free & it has a super wide mouth (there’s no narrowing of the mouth at the top) so it cleans up spotlessly in the dishwasher. That is a major plus for me.
Leakproof? Not the one I received!
I bought this sippy because my son loves chicken broth and smoothies, and I figured this would be an ideal thing for us to bring them to the playground and keep a decent temperature.Anyway, I started using it just for water.The screw-on lid fit tight the first time around, my son loved the bottle, we were happy.Then, by the second day, I cannot get the lid to tighten. It comes loose ON ITS OWN. And when this happens, it can leak the entire contents of the bottle in a minute (picture large puddle in your floor.)I checked that I was putting the rubber top (where the spout is) snugly in the lid, so it did not interfere with the screwing of the lid. Nope.Also, if this is for toddlers, it is not a good idea that you cannot tighten the bottle enough to prevent those little devils from opening it all the way. My son hasn’t realized it yet, but once the lid gets loose (within a minute of putting it on on day two), it would be very easy for him to finish the job and make a humongous mess.Also, like someone else said before, the rubber spout is very soft and easy to chew to bits for a teething toddler. I will definitely not use this bottle when he’s teething. Then again, I will probably not use it at all. I think I’m putting it in the cupboard as the bottle of last resort.If you just wanted the metal (vs plastic) and do not care about the thermal insulation, get a klean kanteen with the adaptor for a baby sippy nipple. I use the avent nipples or the born free nipples and the bottle works LIKE A CHARM. No leaking, no plastic, etc. However, the klean kanteen has no insulation and you cannot put extreme temperature liquids in it, or the baby will get hurt.I started using my regular nissan coffee thermos for the baby to get his smoothie. It’s more messy but he’s getting the idea.Bottom line: Don’t waste your money. It is an expensive sippy of poor quality. Get a regular adult thermos or a regular baby sippy. Plus, it is made in China. If you have concerns about other materials and this is why you’re getting the metal bottle, you may want to get one made in a country that has less problems with lead.
UNSAFE sippy cup, and it leaks to boot
We have used this sippy cup for over a year now and had been moderately pleased with it until some recent discoveries…- The cup was never what I would call “leak proof”, but I felt the leak was not too bad. Now that I have many, many stains all over my wool rug, I have now changed my mind.- There are many pieces to take apart for cleaning and it is not easy to do so. If you don’t line the soft spout up with the hard top exactly right when you are putting it back together, it will leak a LOT. If you don’t screw the lid on VERY tightly, it will leak a lot. We had one that started leaking profusely (just during regular use, not holding it upside down), even though it was assembled just right. It seemed to be leaking from underneath the sealed yellow band that is part of the handle assembly.- We’ve gone through four soft spouts for this sippy. My 2 year old chews through the spouts easily.Now for the UNSAFE part that caused us to throw in the towel on these sippys:- We just discovered that under the little yellow rim inside the cup at the very top is a great hiding place for gunk, bacteria, and buildup. You would not believe the amount of black GOOP that we wiped and scraped out of there after discovering this. It has been cleaned many times by hand and in the dishwasher, and we were horrified that our son has been drinking out of this grossly contaminated cup for so long. Now that I look at the cup with a more discriminating eye, I can’t imagine that you could really get it absolutely clean, given the design.
Great Cup, get the dual pack
We have quite a few of these cups and they all work perfectly… no leaking and my daughter throws her cups down hard onto the tile floor. I get the dual pack at BJs for $19 (it has the sippy cup and the straw style thermos). These cups do it all… made from a safer/healthier material, keeps drinks cold, no leaks.
Hard to put together and very leaky.
I was very excited to get my son this cup to drink out of. I thought it would keep his drinks cold in the summer and be easy for him to use.I am very disappointed. The cup’s parts do pull apart for easy cleaning but the spout is very hard to get back into the lid and almost impossible to line up exactly right. I am not sure if it is because of this that the cup leaks. After messing around with the lid for a good 10 minutes and thinking that it was on good; the cup *still* leaked.I am not talking about leaking from my 15 month old throwing the cup around either. We had this cup sitting in the cup holder in his stroller and 5 minutes of movement from the stroller (at the zoo) caused it to leak out a puddle of milk into the cup holder. We ended up having to throw out the remainder of the milk and beg some napkins from a zoo snack stand attendant to sop up the mess. I am really frustrated that this cup leaks with even normal (not toddler like) use. The fact that “leak-proof” is in the title is really ironic…In summary:Pros- Keeps things cold- Easy to cleanCons- Hard to pop the spout back in- Leaks very easy (we are talking that it leaks while sitting in the stroller.)- Really, really leaks!
Pain to clean and leaks
Unless you put all 5 pieces of this cup together just right, it leaks. Putting it together is a chore, very difficult. The big selling point is how it keeps the drink cool, well all but the milk that sits in the spout, that gets sour quickly.Wouldn’t buy them again.
Slight leaking after a few uses
These cups are not bad, but I have noticed slight dripping. We have used our Foogos about 5 times, so the quality is not what I had hoped for in a cup that cost $15. My son likes these cups and took to them quite quickly, the handles really help him to use it himself. The drip is not bad, the cup is still functional, but it is a disappointment, I thought I had found a great non-plastic cup, but I will continue searching…
Our Favorite Sippy ever.
It’s impossible to avoid things made in China. I don’t like it either, but Thermos has been around for years, and has a long standing reputation for making good products.After trying just about every single BPA free sippy on the market, I finally bit the bullet and bought a Foogo. One thing I will say about this, is that it’s really heavy for a baby. I bought one when my son was about 9 months old and he wasn’t able to hold it at that point, so I had to hold it for him. I was also worried about the valve system, as he had a hard time using cups with valves, but he took to this sippy cup fabulously, and will not use any other cup.A word about leaks. This cup? Should not leak. The parts should come apart easily. We’ve never had a problem, and any time I’ve experienced a leak, I’ve been able to troubleshoot the problem by taking the lid off and usually, it was an issue of the valve not being snapped in all the way. There is a point at which a small bit of water pools in between the valve and the spout, but it’s minimal, and not enough to soak your entire living room.I love the entire Foogo line. They’re durable, and they hold temperature for a long time.
I love that this cup is BPA free and easy for my son to hold. I do not love how every time we use it for milk or water it leaks all over the place! We tried two different models of this cup and BOTH leak out the top – the sippy part. I have given up. We now use the the NUK Gerber BPA Free Fun Grips Spill Proof Cups. We have several of them and they work much better for us. I would not say 100% spill proof, but 95% of the time we have no issues. I would not buy a Foogo cup again.
