Lil' Sippee by Tommee Tippee from Babies R Us
I've asked this question on Twitter before but I need more help. After unloading the dishwasher this morning, I have a pile of mismatched sippy cup parts and I've had just about enough. I feel bad throwing away cups and/or lids but if I don't have all the parts what's the point in keeping them.
Currently Tommee Tippee cups are our favorites. We also have Playtex spill-proof insulated straw cups and we've tried the Munchkin straw cups too.
My Pros and Cons to each:
Tommee Tippee Straw Cups
They really do not leak.
They are very durable.
They are very hard to take apart and clean.
I can only find replacement parts for one style of cup and it's not the one we use.
Playtex Insulated Straw Cups
They don't leak too bad.
They have fun designs on the insulated cups we like.
You can buy them in almost any major retail store.
I can't find replacement parts
Munchkin Straw Cups
You can easily find replacement straws.
They are very easy to take apart for cleaning and reassemble.
They have fun character designs that are fun for kids.
My Questions for you:
What's your favorite brand of straw sippy cups?
What do you do about replacement parts? Valves, straws etc?
Where do you buy the replacement parts?
Do you use one brand and type of sippy cup or do you use different types and brands?
I'd like to find one brand/type to use exclusively but I want to be able to buy the replacement parts. I don't want to constantly be throwing away very good products just because I've lost an inside straw part to the garbage disposal.
Your help is very much appreciated!
