We have a load of beakers and cups in my house. My daughter is 2 1/2 and now likes bigger girls cups so either ones with straws or sports cap type ones without valve controls. I got this cup in Aldi when they had a weekly event on and it was only a £1.
Our cup is purple with a pink lid and a blue ring around the top. The cup has pictures of hearts on the front and my daughter describes it as her heart cup. The cup has a curved design and a section cut out so your child can hold it easily.
The cup is suitable for children 12 months and over.
The cup is made from a thick plastic and to use the cup you screw off the cap and fill up. You then have to place the pink lid on last of all. This screws tightly to stop the drink leaking when in transit. To drink it you have to loosen the lid. This is a bit of a fuss as my daughter can't do this herself so if we are in the car I have to risk leaving the lid unscrewed and it tipping in the car.
I have noticed that this cup has a tendency to leak. I have found that the juice fills between the blue and pink layer and then when my daughter drinks it leaks and drips down her top.
Despite this she loves this cup. It works like a sports cap and no sucking is needed the drink simply comes up when it is tipped upright.
I wouldn't personally buy this again despite the fact my daughter loves it. It was only a £1 so it didn't cost a great deal but it leaks constantly.
I would give it 2 out of 5 stars.
I bought one of these Tommee Tippee cups for my daughter around the time she turned 4. We had always used the TT Easfiflow cups, but she needed something a bit more grown-up looking to take with her on days out.
The cup comes in a variety of colours. I chose the bright pink one, as it's harder to lose sight of. It's made of a tough, unflexible plastic.
The quick quench cup actualy looks more like a sports bottle. It measures 7 inches in height and approx 3 inches in diameter at it's widest point. he bottle has a large indentation on one side to provide children with an easy grip point.
The bottle has a large screw cap. To fill the bottle you need to unscrew the cap, there is no way of filling it through the spout.
The screw cap is in 2 parts which are also screwed together. You only really need to completely separate them for occassional cleaning.
The straw shaped spout is simple but effective. You unscrew it slightly to allow the flow of liquid to come through, then drink from it as you would a sports bottle. By tightening the lid closed again, the seal is water tight and you will not have any leakages.
The cup takes just over half a pint of liquid. It microwaves well with the lid removed.
This is a great cup for older children. It will minimise the chance of spillages and mess, whilst making them feel much more grown up.
Choosing a cup for baby to drink from is a far more important choice to make than you may think, taking in factors such as, weigh, free flow, easy to open? My main reason for choosing this cup was its size, after a visit to the dentist i was reminded that my son shouldnt be using a bottle, the shape of a bottle can damage his teeth so the quicker i could get rid of this bottle the better!
Through the day my son had been using a flip and sip cup which he had done from around 4 months, i highly recommend these cups the only reason for not choosing this one for his night time milk was the size, it couldnt hold 7ozs of milk. So off i went to the shops, adsa that day had lots of different cups on for 2 for £4 which is very good considering many cups of this stamp are generally £3 plus. I chose the kids on the go for its size and I got another cup to try aswell, after a few days it became obvious the tommee tippee cup was a better choice. I purchased another one so i could get my son used to the cup, it had a very free flow which is excellent as its the sucking action in say 'any way up cups' can damage babys teeth. It was easy to open and close and held a good amount of liquid, espically good while out on the move. It is slightly moulded in making it easy for baby to hold and lift up to get a drink.
I left it a few weeks until he had properly adjusted to his new cup and tried him with his cup at bedtime, first time lucky he happily finished his milk which made me feel happier that he wasnt having a bottle anymore!
The only critism i could find with this cup is that unlike others my son has had he cant open it himself, and he likes to tip it upside down and spill it everywhere, think thats just one of the joys of being a baby!
I would definalty recommend this cup to others, definalty if your a mam trying to banish the bottle!
My twin boys are 2 the end of this month and you just wouldn't believe - well you probably would actually - the amount of cups and beakers we have gone through. There have only been one or two that have been successful, most have been junk and lasted about a day. My boys still love their bottles of milk but have recently been drinking it from a cup, me being a soft mummy of course wanted to reward them for this by buying them a new cup. I didn't have one in mind so just popped to the new Asda near me and had a browse.
There were so many to choose from, many brands, colours and styles but for some reason the Tommee Tippee Kids on the go Quick Quench cup was the one that drew me in first.
Tommee Tippee is reputable brand when it comes to baby products so I instantly felt confident that this cup was going to at least be of a decent quality.
It's such a basic looking cup but at the moment has been one of the most practical cups when I'm out and about with my boys, the fact it is in the 'kids on the go' range is ideal.
It's a blue, strong plastic cup, that you can actually see through slightly allowing you to see what and how much is inside the cup. The lid is a screw off lid which does screw off and on easily, tightly and securely. However the lid acts as a lid for the cup itself as well as the part which enables the drink to be past through it. The bottom half of the lid is a brightly coloured orange, the top part which sits neatly on top is the same blue as the cup. You twist the blue part 'open' or 'upwards' forcing the top part of the lid to gradually come apart from the orange part allowing a small yet adeqaute hole to form at the top. This small hole, on the narrow spout that's positioned right on top, can either be opened 'wide' allowing a fast flow of drinks to come out, or just slightly providing a slower flow of drinks, all depending on your childs preference and ability to drink from the cup of course.
The cup's small piece of cardboard packaging informs us that the cup is leak proof and free flow.
Both of these claims are exactly right, the cup is free flow and it can flow as fast or as slow as you'd like it to or your child feels comfortable with just by simply turning the lid on top. When the top part of the lid is screwed closed then the cup is also leak proof, meaning no spills when storing in the bag, on the top of the pram or when your little one is having fun shaking it about vigorously, as they do lol! So don't panic when you notice that this cup doesn't have a lid as it really doesn't need one and I find that the baby beakers that do come with a lid still leak through the lids half the time!
The cup is quite light to hold, but of course when full with drink it does get heavier which is why I like the fact you can see how much liquid is inside through the blue plastic. This way you can ensure you don't fill it up too much if you feel your child might struggle to hold it properly if it is too heavy.
There are no handles on the cup, nor rubbery grips on the side - this is ideal though. The cup is recommended for children aged 12 months plus which is just right in my opinion, they will have probably been introduced to other beakers and spouts so this would be suitable for easy drinking. It doesn't need alot of sucking action as it just literally pours out whether it be slow or fast. If it had handles on it it would just make it more awkward to store on your pram or in a bag whilst out and about and I don't know about you but them beakers that have the rubbery grips although are a good idea in theory I find those grips get filthy so quickly and difficult to clean too.
You don't have to worry about your child being able to 'grip' the cup properly though as the cup is designed so it curves in the middles, more so on the one side, even allowing a child to hold it comfortably with one hand.
Advantages to the cup;
It's a strong and sturdy plastic.
It doesn't leak when the lid is screwed on properly.
It doesn't require a lid meaning less storage and nik naks to worry about.
It only costs just over £2, alot cheaper than some beakers you can buy, especially for this brand too!
The flow of the drink can be controlled by a quick twist of the lid.
The small piece of packaging that came attached said it was a cup ideal for sport, and I agree - this cup doesn't just have to be for babies it can be for an older child who needs a quick and convenient drink in a flash and doesn't want it spilling or leaking when in a rush.
Disadvantages to the cup;
For me there is only one - there is only a disadvantage if you forget to screw the top back closed as then it will leak and it will spill.
For anyone looking for a decent cup, for a quick thirst quencher, especially on the go as it stores easy in a childs bag or just sitting on the hood of your pram then this is a must. It also comes in the colour pink, for the little ladies out there.
