The brand new Lolla Cup might, at first glance, look like just another cup for kids. But when you look a little closer, you’ll see the one big feature most cups don’t have.
With the Lollacup there are no valves at all. For anyone who has tried to clean a regular kids travel cup (and I suspect that is most of us), those little plastic valves can be a real pain. In my house they are forever getting lost – that is when they aren’t completely filthy. Instead of a valve it’s a straw, except the straw on the inside is weighted on the bottom so as your child tips the cup to drink, the straw goes right where the liquid is.
The handles also twist off easily so you can fit the cup in a cup holder. And unlike some of the major travel cup manufacturers (I’m looking squarely at you here Thermos) all of the parts are replaceable. Each cup is made in the USA and even comes with a handy straw cleaning brush. The whole thing is simple and really awesome.
The Lollacup will retail for $18 and will be available November 1st from Lollacup.com. –Chris Ford
