Way back in April I reviewed The Safe Sippy stainless steel sippy cup and I loved it. Kid Basix, the company behind The Safe Sippy, has now come out with The Safe Sippy 2 and they were kind enough to send me a sample to review. Let me first refresh your memory about why they use stainless steel:
"The entire family of Kid Basix stainless steel drink ware was created in response to the growing body of emerging scientific evidence about the dangers of toxic chemicals used to make many plastics. It has been well documented that Bisphenol A (BPA) is the most worrisome of these chemicals, but other chemicals now being studied are now also cause for concern.Before I get into my review, I have to show you the cup I was given. I got a really good chuckle out of it. For those of you not familiar with my family, I have 3 little boys and am currently pregnant with baby #4 (sex tbd Aug 7).
We chose stainless steel because it is clean, stable and durable. Because stainless steel is stable and inert, it does not interact with the foods and fluids it comes into contact with. So what you put in is what you get out. Stainless steel is also one of the most easily recycled materials on earth, making The “Safe” brand of drink ware a smart and green choice in a world trying to reduce plastic waste."
Anyway, The Safe Sippy 2 has all the great features of the original Safe Sippy: stainless steel body, plastics are certified BPA, DEHA and phthalates free, protective sleeve and a straw-shaped spot. So what makes it different? Well they have added a few extras! The biggest, I think, is the straw adapter. So now your cup can be used as either a regular sippy or as a straw sippy - very cool! I've recently transitioned my 2 year old twins to straw cups so I was happy to see this option. They haven't quite mastered it yet, they still turn the cups up, but they are getting there.
In addition to the straw adapter, it also comes with a cap and a travel plug. The travel plug is really neat. Say you are heading out and want to toss the cup in your diaper bag - simply replace the valve or straw with the plug for leak free travel. Sure you have to bring your valve with you if your child wants a drink, but it is better then a wet, messy bag. And just to double-check myself that it works, I stood in my kitchen vigorously shaking the cup with plug in it upside down and not a drop came out. So once again, I am extremely happy with another Safe Sippy Cup!
Kid Basix is generously giving one reader their own Safe Sippy 2!
