Magic Beans is pleased to offer the Tilty Sippy Cup 7 Oz. 2-Pack, an innovative way to help young kids easily transition to drinking from a sippy cup.
Sippy cups are like bikes with training wheels - they are meant to teach kids how to transition to the "real thing". The most important part of sippy cups, besides keeping the mess to a minimum, is encouraging kids to drink independently and learn the proper technique.
It gets complicated though, with classifications like leak-proof, spill-proof and drip-proof. You can find sippy cups with and without valves and with an array of different lids. Despite all these features, the problem of the "extreme bent neck" remains - to drink their juice, kids are doing near-backbends. Hmm. There is nothing natural about that. Why not teach them to drink the way we adults actually do?
So, you can imagine our delight when we found a sippy cup that was actually revolutionary - and no, not because of the cute designs or handles. The Tilty Sippy Cup is built with an internal angled wall that allows kids to drink without tipping the cup past half way. When you child uses a Tilty Sippy Cup, they are able to drink comfortably, even in strollers and car seats, and finish their drink completely more often. This brilliant design makes drinking easy and fun for kids and will encourage their independence. You'll be amazed at how seamless it is for Tilty cup users to transition to regular cups.
In addition to the great design, the construction of the Tilty Sippy Cup is meticulously safe and healthy. It is made of polypropylene that is free of BPA, PVC, and phthalates. And the clear design isn't just for seeing what's in the cup (though it's nice) - it contains no dyes whatsoever. Each Tilty Sippy Cup holds 7 ounces of fluid and can be washed in the dishwasher using the top rack.
Hard to clean, Not Durable
I love the concept of these and thought they were great in the beginning but they just don't hold up.
1) hard to clean - in the dishwasher, the drainage holes get clogged up and then won't drain. Then I have to hand wash and who has time for that.
2) can be hard to use, grandma and daycare couldn't get it right so I stopped sending them
3) the bottoms all cracked and I had to slice off the shards of plastic and finally stopped using them
Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Clear color
Lid loosens when dropped
My EBF son began refusing bottles around 6 months of age, so I began to train him on the sippy cup. First I tried the ThinkBaby "cup", but it was too much like a bottle and my son wouldn't go near it. Next I tried a simple Pampers sippy with valve, but he couldn't figure out how to get liquid out. He figured out the Tilty almost right away, thanks to the smart built-in tilt and the no-valve spout. The liquid drips out at a nice slow rate, perfect for infants. Once he mastered the Tilty, he caught onto the valved sippy cup shortly thereafter!
The only downside to the Tilty is that when dropped or thrown onto the floor (happens a lot), the top tends too loosen and then leak a bit. A screw-on lid would prevent this, but might make it harder to clean.
I hand-wash the Tilty and find it very easy to clean.
Our cup takes a lot of abuse and has no cracks after 4 months daily use.
Easy To Clean, Easy To Use, Portable, Compact, Safe For Baby
The only sippy cup my son will use! Refuses all others. We have tried every sippy cup invented and he refuses all except the Tilty. Tried to get him away from it since he can pull the top off using the tab but we have given up our search and are ordering more Tilty's. We cut the tab off the top and so far we have had good luck.
Lightweight, Portable, Easy to Use
Difficult to Clean, Leaks
Idea is nice but the design doesn't work. Especially since the cup leaks unbelievably through the spout. I only use the cups at dinner time over the high chair tray.
Lightweight, Easy to Use, Sturdy Construction
Hard to stackstore, Difficult to Clean
I love that these don't have any valves but they still don't spill easily. before I found these my son kept trying to drink from the sippy cupps upside down (the wrong side) but after using these for a few weeks he stopped doing that with his other cups too. Draw back is that I find water small food particles can get stuck in the bottom from the dishwasher. Kind of gross but the areas they drink out of are easy to clean.
Difficult to Clean, Stains Easily
We purchased a set of Tilty sippys to introduce our son to drinking from a cup rather than the bottle. He got the hang of it pretty quickly and the flow from the spout is medium and works well for beginners.
They haven't held up that well after four months of light use. Both the bottom lips of the cups have cracked and split leaving sharp edges that I was able to smooth down with some kitchen scissors.
I would recommend hand washing these. They were stained orange after one trip through the dishwasher with some dishes from a pasta dinner and I would often find some stuck-on bits on the underside when the water didn't drain completely from the drain holes on the side.
Overall, 3.5 beans. A great idea for a product and cool design but needs some work.
Tilty has also come out with some new lids for different ages though I haven't seen them in stores yet.
Washes Easily, Sturdy Construction, Easy to Use, Portable, Lightweight
My son loves these cups and so do I.
Lightweight, Sturdy Construction, Easy to Use
Difficult to Clean
I really like the Tilty. My baby doesn't have to lean his head back to drink from it, and the no-valve technology is good for his teeth.
The only issue with it is that it's hard to clean. There are two drain holes that are supposed to let out the water that collects under the angled wall during the dishwasher cycle, but bits of food still get stuck under there, and it's tough to rinse them out.
Great value, Portable, Easy to Use, Washes Easily, Lightweight, Sturdy Construction
Ok... why didn't I think of this? These cups have this cool tilted, inner wall so my toddler can drink juice without my help. Makes him feel like a "big kid". Definitely buy at least a couple packs, you'll use them all the time.
