I’ve checked out quite a few sippy cups both plastic and stainless steel. We’ve put the Boon Sippy through the test, the BornFree Drinking Cup, the Sigg water bottle… but nothing has come close to winning my love and affection quite like the Thermos Foogo sippy cup. I love… this sippy. My kid loves this sippy. The world should love this sippy.

The cup is made of all bpa free materials and has a double wall insulated stainless steel body where the liquids are held. I should mention that this insulation keeps liquids cold or hot longer than any other we’ve tried. It has a valve construction in the top portion which comes apart for easy cleaning. Including the main cup portion there are a total of 4 pieces, which isn’t bad considering cups like the BornFree which has about 7. I do like how the handles are part of the cup and don’t come off… although they do have a handless cup too for those who might prefer that style. It’s not the biggest cup ever so it gets emptied by my toddler through the day but, that’s actually ideal since water doesn’t sit in there for long periods like it might with other larger ones.

We’ve put it through the ringer since it’s so durable and it’s not scratched, dented or marked or scuffed in any way. And it’s been kicked around the driveway outside, so that’s saying something. It still looks as good as the day we got it.

Does it leak? No. My kid likes to carry cups around by the handles which means he drinks more water during the day, but it also means drippy cups don’t work well for us. That is not a problem with this cup. You can hold it upside down for quite a bit before any water, if any at all, comes out. No water leaks from the seam of the top or anywhere else if left on its side. I actually found this cup sideways and upside down between two couch cushions and there was nothing even remotely wet.

The Bottom Line: This sippy gets the Safe Mama stamp of BPA Free Approval. We have one, which was provided by The Soft Landing for testing and review purposes but I am going to buy a couple more as well as the larger straw bottle to keep on hand for on the go refills. Thank you to The Soft Landing for providing the test cup. They are offering a 10% off discount for Safe Mama readers… use the code “SAFEMAMA” at check out until 12/31/07.
