It took a daddy inventor to come up with such a cool and simple solution to an age old problem. Why do kids never finish the last two ounces of water in the sippy cup? Daddy Troy reviews one of the coolest sippy cups available for children.
Troy: Okay, so you heard the expression build a better mouse trap. Well, at Dad Labs we thought we've seen it all in sippy cups and along comes the Tilty Cup. The sippy cup right here has a little device that allows a kid to drink, they're a totally different fashion than the sipping cup. And I've got Shandley here from Tilty Cup, and he's going to tell us all about it. Shandley: Well the Tilty Cup has an angled wall in it so they're in a more comfortable position while they're drinking. The can finish the little mouth, because its force down to the mouthpiece. And it also works in the stroller and car seat when you're on the go. It’s got a happy face lid. So if you got a baby that's a little reluctant to leave behind the bottle, this gives him a companion in their sippy cup experience. We also have all the colors that they're learning at that stage, red, green, yellow, and blue. Troy: Those are great. So it has a clip on top rather than a screw down top. Why did you guys go with a clip on? Shandley: Well screw on tops, they tend to get loose because you keep tightening and tightening them. And the mouthpiece ends up in the wrong spot. We wanted to make sure that the baby always experience the most comfortable position by having the mouthpiece where the angled wall benefited them the most. Troy: And do you guys do like extensive research in finding out the correct angle. How did you guys figured that part out? Its look like a 45 degree, it looks like. Shandley: Well, I think it’s more like a 60, but we wanted to make sure that it was giving them the same amount as all the other cups which is the 7 ounce cup, but still forcing the fluid all the way to the mouthpiece. So they never have to tilt all the way back. And that breaks that mechanics that causes the dump factor when they tilt a regular cup, and dump it all out. Troy: Well my daughter, she freaks out whenever she spills stuff all over. She doesn’t like to be wet and also I have to wash all her clothes all the time as well. So my other big question is, I'm a grown up and sometimes I have a few beers after work, can grownups use this as well to keep that spill factor from spilling beer all over themselves. Shandley: The only thing you want to do is, if you have something carbonated in here, carbonation builds up and starts spitting at your mouthpiece. Troy: Oh, that might make it even easier. The Tilty Cup. This is really great, thank you so much. Shandley: Thank you.
