Munchkin Click Lock Trainer Cup
On a few occasion's I've stood in the baby aisle of the supermarket bleary eyed a bit overwhelmed at all the cups available, different colours, shapes, sizes, all sorts of teats, spouts, flippy tops. I have at least 5 different 'sippy' style cups I tried with Euan (now 3) and struggled to find one he got the gist of. So now about to embark on the same stage with Edie, I was going to start the cycle again when we had the opportunity to try the Munchkin, Click Lock Trainer Cup. Suitable from 6 months +, and for Edie's first 'cup' experience, it seemed like a good place to start.
You'd be forgiven for being sceptical at first glance of the packaging, afterall those are some big promises to make to a parent….with claims of 100% leak proof spill proof, but still having an easy flow soft silicone spout for Edie to drink comfortably … how?? But then these guy's at Munchkin have 10 of their products ranked Number 1 in their given field. So, they must know their baby stuff!
In no time at all Edie had donned her lab coat and was ready for some intense testing. This cup was going to be put through its paces.
The Highchair Launch Test.
Chunks of apple, pasta, cucumber, rice cakes, breadsticks…Edie's not fussy at what can get launched from the high chair, so why would the cup get any special treatment. Having had the cup for a few days, we sat down for a snack…
Wait for it…spot the left hand….
Here is the 'chuffed with myself face' …. Cup successfully launched on the floor.
Granted, I could have swept up …but that aside, I had to document this…note…not a single drop, and that hit the hard floor with a thump!
Happening several times, per sitting for 3 meals a day, and snacks. It's still as good as new.
I think that can be the Highchair Launch Test passed with flying colours.
The 'Sling It On The Passenger Seat' Test.
Now, I have my change bags, kids have their own bags for all the 'stuff' you need when leaving the house, and then I have MY bags, my little treasured bags that I don't put leaky lip glosses or temperamental biro's in let alone a bottle of water with an easy flow spout! *takes deep breath * I was putting alot of trust in the Munchkin cup for this test.
Having had the Munchkin Click Lock Trainer Cup for over a week, I thought it was time. Time I left Edie's bag of stuff at home, and put a few of her essentials in my bag.
Mummies, how many times have you slung the kids essentials in a bag, buckled them in, chucked said bag in the car and had to dash toot suite. Only to reach your destination to a loose Tupperware lid leaving rice cake crumbs, or worse formula strewn everywhere. Or. juice swishing about or dripping over your 'To Do List'. Annoying isn't it.
So we set off to see my Nan. …..here's the bag before
