Love the product but too complicated for a toddler
We had this bottle for my older child and it was great so I bought another for my 22 month old and have realised it’s actually really difficult to use. He has to bite the straw while sucking; he just can’t understsnd no matter how much I demonstrate. i’ve Given it a 2 star rating as it’s great if your child can figure it out, but probably not great for the 12 month + age group it is marketed to.
Definitely does leak
This cup was great and Didn't leak for the first couple of days now it leaks everywhere. Also the straw keeps popping off the little knob part in the inside, so I'm constantly having to take the lid off and put back together. Super disappointed and will never buy again.
It may not drip, but it's also useless
One can't draw any water from it unless the straw is squeezed... how annoying. The child got very frustrated and discarded it. Size and shape are fine, but unless the child bites the straw, no liquid will come out.... good design? I think not.....after all once the straw is folded in place it doesn't leak.
Great straw, but spilt water sucks!
We were so excited to finally find a cup our daughter would drink from. Other straw cups were too hard for her - we think. Anyway was really disappointed that the lid comes off the bottle way too easily when dropped off the high chair onto the ground. Got so sick of mopping up puddles of water that this one is going in the bin!
Not at all leak proof
Bought two of these bottles, both of them began leaking only a few days after use, leaked from between the cup and the screw on lid. When dropped, the lids came straight off spilling milk or water everywhere. Both bottles were thrown out within a week, wouldn't buy again or recommend.
Leaks all the time
It leaks. Every time I have it my nappy bag, it leaks. It's done up tight but still water gets out. Annoying. I've used it at home & out and about and the same thing happens. Not sure why but it does. Very disappointing as otherwise, really like it. Oh well.
nice straw but not long lasting
My daughter loves drinking from this range of cups, with the soft straw which allows easy flow. I do find that the straw ages quickly in a few ways: over time, a friction develops between the straw and the sliding lid, making it harder to open; the hole in the top of the straw gets bigger - silicon material tears - under normal use.
This cup was found leaking in my bag a few times when it tipped sideways, when all it had was cold water.
Bottom of cup was hard to reach by brush or hand when cleaning. Straw parts are reasonably easy to clean wi...
Great - until the straw gets destroyed by your child's teeth...
I thought these were terrific bottles when I first bought them. They are a nice shape, great colours, and were the only thing my son could successfully drink from when he was younger (he hated sippy cups/spouts). He could also easily flip the top open himself to drink. I found that they weren't totally leak proof, even when new. However, after a few months of use, the straws were totally destroyed by my son's teeth.
The soft silicone was just too inviting for his chompers! This wouldn't be a problem if replacement straws could be purchased,...but as other reviewers have said, these are impossible to track down. Consequently, both bottles we owned had to be thrown out even though the bottle and lid were still in great condition. I've since replaced these with the Skip Hop brand which has a more sturdy straw and comes with a replacement straw. (Nb. This review is meant for the Nuby Flip-it, not the mega Flip-it.) Colour, style, inexpensive, holds up well in dishwasher. Straws easily destroyed, no replacement straws therefore not environmentally friendly, not entirely leak-proof, slightly too wide for some cup holders.
Best sippy cup on the market!
I have tried so many so called non spill sippy cups. Most either cannot b drunk out of (even I had trouble!) or the non spill component has to b removed to allow drinking and then of course they leak.
This cup doesn't leak AND it is easy for little ones to drink from. And while the other nuby cups are great, I find the straw one much easier to use and my toddler prefers it.
Doesnt leak, easy to drink from, dishwasher safe so easy to clean. Also like the fold down spout cover to keep it clean between uses and no lid to lose!
Good "non-spill" straw cup
This is a good non-spill straw cup for little ones, though it does spill some water out of the top on occasion. I started using this cup for my daughter when she was about seven months old and she learnt to use it just fine. I've tried all types of liquids in there including smoothies. Be warned that anything other than water is a pain to clean out of this straw.
Pretty much non spill. Easy to use
Pain to clean. Too many parts
I've had trouble with a few other brands, constructing them or them leaking. So I bought a couple of these and chucked the rest out. If you leave milk in there too long it can stick to the inside of the straw- solution? Use a chopstick to clean it, works wonders! Once I lost one of the pieces of straw, but I kept the straws from the badly designed ones for just this purpose- it fitted nicely.
I've recommended this brand to the twitterverse.
Me and my toddler can easily use it.
Milk can stick to the inside of the straw, but that's the same for any brand.
Great cup for little people
This cup doesn't spill and it stands up fairly well without toppling over. It is colourful and easy to wash. It also suits a wide age range. My toddler loves it. I love that I don't have spills to clean p. I also like that it doesn't look too babyish.
good quality and value for money
I bought a few of these on special which made it really economical.
I love the bright colours and they are pretty easy to clean and keep clean. They rarely come undone in a handbag and even if they do, you have the advantage of the non-drip straw so you don't get leaks.
My child never had a problem working out the straw but some of my friend's children did.
Lovely colours, fairly easy to clean, easy for most babies to use, water tight and fairly well-priced
Some parents have reported problems with their child using it as it requires them to squeeze the straw before water/liquid comes out.
I have had quite a bit of experience with these drink containers. It was the first container that my son used from an early age (before the recommened age on the bottle). He learnt how to suck from a straw easily. He is now using a stainless steel bottle for water during the day but has one of these bottles behind his pillow for night time. Again great bottles apart from not having replacement straws. Having said that though the straws can last several months.
Easy to grip. No spill. Look good. Can be put in dishwasher top shelf.
If you could g...
I have tried about 4 different straw training cups, and this one is my favourite. All of the others leaked to some extent, one i had to keep in a plastic bag if i was going out anywhere because it would leak all through my nappy bag. I love the colours (we have a purple one) and the design is awesome, my daughter can easily hold it without it slipping.
My favourite thing with this cup is that it doesnt leak! Lots of training cups claim they dont leak, but they do. I also like the design because it is easy for my 14 month old to hold.
Straw doesnt quite reach the bottom and the flip down bit for the straw doesnt clip in.
I wanted to get my son off bottles, he is now 16months, I tried giving him cups but he just poured it down his front so i thought this would be the next best thing. I love that they are non spill, my son knows how to open and shut himself
I think these are such cool bottles, you can mix and match colours and they are easy to hold onto. Great idea
I havent had any problems so far, though i dont like that there are so many parts, annoying to clean. I tjought they were also quite expensive, was hesitant to buy.
Questions & Answers
I just recently purchased a no-spill flip it bottle but i lost the silicon seal, can you purchase the silicon seal replacement part from somewhere? its a bit of a waste if you cant buy the seal and need to buy another one, cost and environment wise.
