The Lollacup: Not Just Another Sippy Cup

By admin |

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

    Pretty cool, but 18 dollars seems pretty pricey for a cup.

  2. Rebecca says:

    agreed, at first I was thinking, oh YES I need to buy these… but um, NO I don’t have $18 per cup to spend. Heck I don’t even buy “nice”, grownup cups for that much. Sigh.

  3. Jason says:

    $18 does seem a bit much, but a weighted straw?? That’s incredible! And I bet it’s durable as heck so you probably won’t need to buy more than one, unless you have more than one child. Seems like a worthy investment.

  4. Grace says:

    I think its definitely worth the $18 considering you will never have to buy another replacement cup again!!! genius!

  5. kurgen99 says:

    If it works, I’ll buy it. The cheap cups need to be replaced too often.

  6. Derer says:

    Hey, they look functional as anything that is out there. Sound a lot more hygienic as well. These cups look like a lot of thought went into them.

  7. Jerry says:

    $18 may seem like alot, but you get what you pay for. These cups look well made. We’ve gone through too many cheap sippys, but the more expensive USA made cups have lasted.
