Tommee Tippee Easiflow Insulated Cup
Advantages: Does not spill, holds a good amount of liquid, easy to use
I purchased the Easiflow Insulated beaker from Tommee Tippee around a month or so ago for my 16 month old son. Since weaning we have purchased a number of cups yet none prior to this one have been satisfactory.
My son always likes to have a drink of water or juice to hand and so uses a cup or beaker throughout the day. As we attend a number of toddler groups throughout the week these are often thrown into a changing bag or handbag and more often than not begin to leak. The Tommee Tippee Easiflow Insulated beaker however is cleverly designed not to leak if tipped or shaken.
The cup itself is relatively large, holding a good amount of liquid, though it is narrow enough for small hands to grasp. It is available in a number of different colours, ours in particular is identical to the one pictured above. The body of the cup is green and depicts a jungle scene. The beaker is insulated and has two layers, the inner layer also depicts a jungle scene, giving the image a two dimensional appearance.
The beaker has an easy to grip screw on lid. This is a particularly favourite feature of mine as I have found with a number of beakers and drinking cups that when the lid is simply pressed on, the air pressure causes the liquid inside to squirt up via the spout. With the Easiflow Insulated screw on lid this does not happen.
The liquid is drank via a straw with a small hole. In order to draw the liquid up the straw must be sucked and chewed, the chewing motion opens up the hole in the straw and the sucking motion then draws the liquid upward. I was a little dubious when I first inspected this cup, at first expecting the liquid to come up with a simple sucking motion. However my son figured it out far more quickly than I could and immediately began drinking from it.
One great advantage of this straw is that the beaker can be drank from at any angle. I have found with simple tip-up cups that my son will often pick them up and drink from the spout at the opposite angle, causing the liquid to tip away from the spout and none to come out.
At the top of the lid is a cap which slides over the straw in order to further seal it and of course to keep it clean. My little boy is particularly amused when he opens this cap himself as a little liquid from the end of the straw often catches him in the face as the straw flicks upwards. This never fails to make him giggle!
The Easiflow Insulated is very easily cleaned as you may go about cleaning your regular cups. Though it is still relatively early, in the month that we have owned this cup, there has been no damage to the image or to the cup itself from washing.
The RRP for this product is £3.90 though I purchased mine from Tesco at somewhere just under £2.50. The manufacturers recommended age is 12 months and upwards.
Amongst the many benefits this product has to offer, the most reassuring for me is that my son will drink the entire contents, something that he has not done with any other beaker or cup. I would highly recommend this beaker for any parent who it looking for an easy to use, transportable and non-leaking drinking cup.
Summary: The best by far!
