Where would we parents of young kids be without the sippy cup? Cleaning up a lot more spills and stains, I say! Sippy cups let little ones be mobile with their drinks, but not be spilling them everywhere they travel – thank goodness for that! The First Years, a trusted brand of gear for little ones, has come out with a fun, new line of magic color changing sippy cups for boys and girls. And, these cool cups also feature kids’ favorite Disney Characters like Cars, Toys Story 3, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, all the popular princesses, and Tinkerbell and her buddies.
Our Experience with The First Years Magic Color Changing Sippy Cups
As soon as I opened the twin packs of sippy cups, my 4 year old went crazy jumping up and down and looking at all of her favorite characters on the cups. I have to admit, the graphics and colors are really cute!
While we don’t use sippy cups at the dinner table anymore, we do still use them on family movie nights when we eat popcorn and have our favorite beverages while we watch a movie on the big screen (see my review of the Epson Moviemate Projector). I also think they’re great for travel in the car – I’m all about maintaining the upholstery in our older model minivan! These sippy cups have become the favorites in our house.
My Favorite Features of The First Years Magic Color Changing Sippy Cups
- The valves are built into the lid – no more searching the kitchen drawers for the matching valves – hooray!
- The cups are sturdy, and insulated, so drinks stay hot or cold longer.
- When the colors change back to the regular color, you know that the drink is no longer cold – a great feature for those hot summer days.
- Cups are BPA and PVC free.
- Lids and cups are top rack dishwasher safe
- The graphics are super cute!
My Daughter’s Favorite Features of The First Years Magic Color Changing Sippy Cups
- Seeing her favorite Disney Characters on the cups
- The magic color changing feature. We’ve had the cups for quite a while now, but she still loves seeing the background color of the cup change as we add her favorite cold drink.
