Advantages: Doesn`t spill or leak
Disadvantages: The straw can be difficult to clean
This opinion is sort of in the right place, as it`s about the tesco anyway up cup. This cup comes in two colours, bright green and purple. They are slightly transparent so you can see how much juice is left in it without removing the lid. They also have a colourful picture on the side of either a hippo or an elephant. The lid is bright pink and easily removed and just pushes back on. It is a pretty snug fit but if the cup is thrown very hard by your child it can sometimes come off.
Unlike the anyway up cup, which has a special valve which can wear out with time and use, this cup has a small flexible straw inside. The way this works, is by the straw being pushed onto a hollow point which is positioned just inside the spout. The straw is then fixed around the edge of the inside of the lid, and the other end then pushed into place in the space next to the other end of the straw.
This is quite hard to explain to someone whose never seen this type of lid as it`s pretty unusual.
Any juice that is left in the cup can`t be spilled as it has to be sucked up inside the straw before it will come out of the spout. The advantage of this kind is that the rubber straw won`t wear out, and also because it has to be sucked then you don`t need to worry about different sized holes. The disadvantage is that the straw can be a bit fiddly to clean, especially when it`s had milk in it.
It is made out of hard plastic and is very durable, this has been put to the test many times by being thrown across the room by my daughter. The handles on the sides are a nice size so they`re easy for any child to hold. The spout itself is a good size but I think the cup could do with being a bit bigger, just so I don`t have to keep leaving the computer to go fill it up again and again.
This is the second cup I tried for my daughter as she found it too hard to suck anything out of the anyway up cup, but she had no problem with this one. It cost me £2.99 and is ava
ilable in most tesco stores.
The only problem I`ve got now is how to stop her from losing the bloomin thing every 5 minutes.
