Image and video hosting by TinyPic Got a leaky straw cup? For a true spill-proof version, check out Tommee Tippee’s Truly Spill-Proof Straw Cup ($7.99 for a 2 pack). I reviewed several of Tommee Tippee’s products last month and loved them – click here to read my post.

My two children, ages 4 and 2, use straw cups constantly. While we love one very popular brand, I am sick of seeing milk dribbled on my carpet. Tommee Tippee’s Truly Spill-Proof Straw Cup were truly spill-proof — nothing my children (or I) did made these cups leak! I turned them upside down, shook them and I was thrilled to see no leaks! The 9 oz cup is BPA-free and suitable for children ages 12 months and up. In fact, all Tommee Tippee’s products are BPA-free.
Why doesn’t this cup spill?  The secret’s in their advance-flo(tm) valve, designed by a physicist so liquid flows on demand. The cup is insulated and keeps drinks cooler longer. The cup also features a hygiene cover trigger to protect the straw when it’s not being used. When it’s snapped down, the straw is out of sight. This cup is definitely a winner and I think we will be replacing our currently, super leaky straw cups with Tommee Tippee’s spill-proof version!

We also tested their Truly Spill-Proof Water Bottle ($4.99 for 1).  To be honest, I did not expect it to be as fabulous as it was. It didn’t leak either and my 4 year old son loved using it as a night water cup. It holds 12 oz of water and has a soft spout. It has the same valve system as the straw cup and will not leak even if you turn it upside down.

  1. I got a chance to try out the new drinking cups by Tommee Tippee and they are awesome! I keep telling everyone.

  2. Frustrated says

    I must be doing something wrong bc every time we use the trigger to get to the straw, liquid sprays all over the place. Any suggestions?

    • Hi.. I spoke to the company and this was their prompt response:

      Hi there! It’s very important with the truly spill proof explora cups,
      especially the straw cup, that the valve and straw pieces are assembled
      correctly. Try watching instructions on our YouTube channel: and if you continue to experience any problems our customer
      careline is more than happy to help resolve this! You can give them a call at

  3. Thank you for the YouTube site. I was having an awful time trying to get the parts back together so that the cup worked properly.
