BornFree Twist 'n Pop Straw Cup Review and Giveaway!


 Little One has discriminating taste for a toddler. From a very early age, the girl knew what she liked and didn't like. Finding the perfect sippy cup was by complete trial and error. Oh, and there were many errors! We tried almost all the brands available, but she didn't like them.

One day, I was researching BPA-free and environmentally friendly feeding products and came across BornFree. Some of my friends used BornFree products and recommended them.

Little One took to the BornFree training cup immediately. Decision made.
She has since graduated to the BornFree drinking cup, and is currently using the BornFree Twist 'n Pop Straw Cup.

Little One loves BornFree so much, that she had to share the Twist 'n Pop straw cups with all her friends at her birthday party! Thanks, BornFree! 
I have to say that Little One loves her straw cup. It's easy to hold and easy to drink from. When it accidentally gets knocked over, it doesn't leak!!! It does leak a bit if your toddler holds it upside down and starts shaking it like crazy, trying desperately to get the water, juice, or milk to spill out! Where do toddlers learn these things??? Early science experiments gone awry, I suppose! Never too young to learn about the laws of physics.

The cup and cover/lid do not leak, but if held upside down, liquid can escape through the straw. Of course, that's a given. Hello, gravity?


What I love the best about the Twist 'n Pop straw cup (apart from being BPA-free!) is that all the pieces are removable for easy washing AND the lid slides to close over the straw for when your child is not drinking from the cup.

I have a little secret. I never leave drinks unattended without covering them. It's one of my many little quirks. I'm afraid of things falling into or flying/crawling into my drink! Ha! I'm totally not kidding. I'm even afraid of dust falling into my drink!

At least Little One won't have to worry about this. Not that I'd ever transfer any of my neurotic tendencies over to my toddler. ;)

I know what you're thinking. YOU'D like a BornFree Twist 'n Pop straw cup of your own for your little one, right? Well, you're in luck! The wonderful people at BornFree are giving one of my readers a BornFree Twist 'n Pop cup!
