I'm sure most parents know that the "spill proof guarantee" is never true, especially if you have a child who throws their cups or leaves them lying down often. We had tried a few varieties of cups when my daughter was ready to wean off the bottle. We settled on the soft tipped straw cups for a few months, but not only were they a pain to clean...my daughter would fling milk EVERYWHERE when taking them out of her mouth.
I kept seeing these cups with all the cute designs on my weekly trips to Walmart. I bought the finding Nemo ones and some Princess ones at our local Walmart (I couldn't find either online). These particular cups leak so much less than any other cup we've tried! They haven't proven to be completely "spill proof" but I'm very vigilant about making sure my 16 month old doesn't leave them lying around. Even when they do leak it's only a drop or two.
Best of all there's only 2 parts to the whole cup and they're VERY easy to clean, I would recommend using a pipe cleaner to clean the valve and the mouth piece. We've only been washing them by hand and we haven't seen any fading in the designs. Best of all our daughter loves them. I was skeptical about the reviews I had seen, but I'm glad that I decided to buy them anyways. Knowing that Walmart has a great return policy and never gave me trouble for returning used not so "spill proof" sippy cups (I made sure to tell them they had been used so they wouldn't put them back on the shelf) We will continue to use these as long as she needs them, and skip the hassle of all the other cups with our future children!!
