THE SAFE SIPPY 2 REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY ***CLOSED***

Since having my son I have been schooled on many different topics that I was not aware of before being a parent. One to the things that I have learned is that not all baby and children's products are safe. That is a sad fact. From BPA and phthalates being in everything from toys, to bottles and even some baby formula. I have been trying to use up what I have and start buying products more organic, natural and free of the yucky chemicals.When my son started drinking from a sippy cup, his cups were all made of plastic. As I started reading more information about the hazards in some plastics I started to look for alternatives. The Munchkin' Man is now 2 1/2 years old, but still enjoys drinking from a sippy cup and if it has a straw that is even better. I was so glad to find The Safe Sippy 2 by Kid Basix . I contacted the owner of Kid Basix, Bret , and he sent over one for us to try. Kid Bassix has a Mantra instead of a Mission Statement. It is:
Making kids' lives better.
This was the simple idea that drove the development of our first product, and it is the idea that will drive the products yet to come.
Simple ideas can make for ambitious goals. Our founder created The Safe Sippy™ cup because he knows how dangerous plastics are, and it drove him crazy that he was giving his two year old son water every morning in a cup made from toxic chemicals.
It is our goal that the future products from Kid Basix have the same simple singleness of purpose: Making kids’ live better.
Isn't that so much better than a mission statement?
Now onto our cup :) I was impressed with this product as soon as I opened it. Not only was it such a great looking cup, but the insert in the package answered many questions that I had right of the bat. So, I washed the cup and the parts and filled it with water. My son loved it! I assembled it with the straw components and removed the handles. We had a busy weekend of going to an aquarium, bbqs and the cup came with us everywhere. Although with the straw the cup is not meant to be spill proof, it did not leak all over the car or our backpack while we were out. The cup also comes with a dust cap to make sure that the spout stays nice and clean while not in use. We have tried other stainless steel cups, but The Safe Sippy 2 is the only cup that has everything all in one. This cup can grow with your child. This cup can be a sippy cup with handles for the child just learning or it can be used as a cup with a straw for the older child. It is not too big or heavy even when filled. It has a fantastic easy grip insulating sleeve. The sleeve helps keep the liquid cool and helps a child hold onto the cup. Most of all I love it because you are not getting the condensation on the outside of the cup like others I have used. Remember those yucky chemicals that I was trying to stay away from.. well this cup is free of BPA and Phthaltes and made of non-leaching stainless steel. Way to go Kid Bassix!!

Kerry this is awesome! I love to learn about new safer products for the little one- and sometimes just don't have the time to do it. I have to say my favorite part is that it's a cup that grows from teh sippy cup to one with a straw- my cabinets are packed with baby stuff - small bottles then bigger bottles then smaller sippy cups on to bigger one. I'd rather have one cup I can wash out and use forever!

Anna said...

I like that the spout isn't going to hurt speech development.

I love that this cup grows with your tot from sippy to straw cup! My little one hasn't quite mastered a straw cup, but soon she will. I love the idea of the travel plug too. Who likes a leaky cup in their diaper bag?

My fav feature is simply that it's stainless steel, no liners that may or may not have BPA in them (can you tell I'm bitter about my Sigg?).

About Me

My photo
I spend most of my time with my wonderful little boy (aka The Munchkin' Man). I consider myself to be an eco friendly person that is trying to improve my son's world a little at a time. In my spare time..haha.. I am a Stampin' Up Demonstrator.
