There are a ton of straw and sippy cups out on the market... A TON!! So when I come across one that has a really cool and exciting feature, I'm always super psyched to try it out. The latest fitting that bill is the Sip & Spin Straw Cup from nuSpin Kids. What makes this one so different is the pinwheel on the top of the cup that spins when the child sips from the cup! How fun is that!??
Some other features that make the Sip & Spin a great cup are that it's free of BPA, Phthalates, PVC, and Nitrosamines, it's spill-proof, and it's top rack dishwasher safe.
One thing I personally love is the straw - it's a flexible silicone so it's not the kind of straw you worry about your little one totally stabbing themselves with (but do note, it's recommended for 12 months and up). It's also valve-free, which is safer for dental health, speech development, and hygiene.
I was a bit intimidated by all the parts, but a quick review of the instructions helped me put it together lickity split (which is the only way when you have a toddler hanging onto you begging to have his new toy, errr, cup!
Toddler tested and toddler approved - he downed the cup (of water!) in all of 2 minutes flat, a feat that typically would have taken him several hours!
And here's the Sip & Spin in action - you can see ours leaks a little bit but nothing major. And my son (and I) both got a big kick out of the spinning pinwheel!!
I do have some bad news... the Sip & Spin won't be hitting the market until July or August 2015! But... you have the chance to WIN ONE right here on my blog!! That's right, you could have your very own Sip & Spin, for free, before they're even available for purchase! WOOHOO!!! Just enter in the Gleam box below (US residents ages 18 and over only please; giveaway ends July 6 at 11:59 PM EST)! GOOD LUCK!!

I like the overall design of the cup, that it's clear and the prints stand out. That my toddler will have a chance to actually drink the liquid at a better pace is an added bonus.. With some cups it takes her forever just to drink 1/2 cup. The flexible straw and spill proof feature makes it perfect.

They want a party that is not only fun, but one that doesn't contribute to the suffering of animals, harm the environment or include products made using unethical labor practices.
