Lately I have really been into finding products that are less plastic and more centered on utilizing safer materials like stainless steel, bamboo, wood, ceramic and glass. I am on a glass kick lately and even bought my own glass water bottle which I have been loving (more on that later). So when the new EIO Kids Cup came out I was really interested in checking it out.
The awesome people behind The Glass Baby Bottle sent me an EIO Kids Cup to check out. I was really eager to check it out too because after looking at the “cup benefits” image they have, it looks a lot more complicated than it really is.
Essentially the cup is a glass 8 oz jar. But the great part is that it comes equipped with a silicone gripping sleeve that can come off for washing if need be. The cap screws on utilizing the threads of the jar to hold in place. The cap features an inward slant to create a spout effect. This isn’t a spill proof sippy cup, but more of a bigger kid training cup. Even though my son is old enough to use a regular cup, I still like to cap him at the table in case of accidents. You do need to be extra careful when screwing on the lid. If it’s not on perfectly, liquid leaks out from under the cap. But if it’s on nice and snug and level it works great.
There are no valve’s or hard to clean spaces so you can hand wash easily or run through the dishwasher in the top rack. It’s the perfect size for little hands and my son really liked having his own glass cup at dinner. I think it goes without saying that this cup is free of BPA, PVC and Phthalates and there is no risk of any kind of plastic leaching since it’s glass.
The cup comes in bright orange (the color my son chose), purple, and green and is pretty cute if you ask me!
