Even though my girls have made the switch from a baby bottle to a "big girl" cup, they still will use a water bottle or no-spill flip it bottle with straw when on the go or simply watching television in the living room. It is easier to chill a bottle of water or juice, and let them grab it when they are thirsty, than to try and have them sit at the table to drink from a cup. In addition to bottles, I also threw out sippy cups and cups with spouts, as I found the girls would just chew on these when their drink was done.
I was excited to be given the chance recently to try out the Dora the Explorer No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ from Nuby. Both of my girls are fans of Dora the Explorer, and I knew they would be excited when they saw this new straw drinking cup. Knowing that I was only getting one to try out, I made a point to go online and order another from Amazon for only $12.99, so that they would each have their own, and that there wouldn't be any fighting.
When I received the Nuby No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ sample in the mail, I pulled out the No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ cup I ordered from Amazon, so that they could each have one. Savannah and Bella's eyes lit up and they both had a big smile on their face, as they reached for their new Dora the Explorer No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ cup. They anxiously waited for me to take it out its packaging so that they could fill it water and give it a try.
This No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ holds 10 oz. of liquid and is perfect for children ages 12 months and above. Like all Nuby products, this No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ is also BPA free. Because it comes with a straw for drinking, this no-spill cup is perfect for encouraging little ones the natural drinking action, as well as for oral development. And, with the addition of Dora the Explorer all around the bottle, it is perfect for fans of this hit animated series.
As a parent who is always on the go with the kids, I love having these No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ cups on hand, as they are perfect for the girls to use in the car, without having me worry about them spilling the cups, or dropping them on the back seat floor and having the liquid leak out everywhere. And, because they have a printed exterior, they are easy for my girls to pick out when brought to a play group or to school.
In addition to the Dora the Explorer straw cup we were sent to review, and I ordered from Amazon, there are also other fun Nickelodeon character cups available, including Diego and SpongeBob Squarepants...

Not only have my girls' friends commented on how cool they cups looked and how they, too, want a Dora the Explorer cup for themselves, moms also like the no-spill and straw feature for their growing children. With Valentine's and Easter fast approaching, this No-Spill™ Nickelodeon™ Printed Flip-it™ from Nuby would make for a great gift or Easter basket idea for little ones. And, it will come in handy when the weather warms up and you find yourself out and about more with the kids.
