Having a toddler you know things are everywhere, food thrown at us and best of all little cups falling out of their hands. Raise your hand if you've been their mammas, juice all over the floor and wondering how to keep that cup in their hands. We have every toddler cup you could possibly think of but when I ran across Silikids I hit a homerun with my little one. He loves the fact that it’s a big boys glass cup, his favorite color orange and it’s his.
Now let me share with you why I’m in love with their Silikids 6 oz. Glass Cup with Silicone and Universal Silikids Spill-Proof Lids w/Straw. Mammas get ready to do the happy dance, I’m jumping for joy. Our little ones can drink out of a big boy or girl glass cup and they can hold on to it. The silicone is soft to the touch and won't slip out of their tiny hands, even if they have dirty or greasy hands unless they want to toss it, then that’s another story. Perfect for kids learning to use a "big kid" cup, the glasses are encased in silicone protective sleeves and patented shock absorption. Amazing!
Another hot item that every mom must have, is the Universal Silikids Spill-Proof Lids w/Straw. Buy a few of these, keep a set in your diaper bag, purse, underneath the stroller and at home. These Universal Silikids Spill-Proof Lids w/Straw fit all stemware and magically transforms into toddler friendly glassware with straw. The Silikids Straw Top is a universal silicone top that stretches over and grips the top of any size cup instantly making it spill proof.
Why Silicone is important and what you need to know. Silicone is basically made up of silicon, a natural element present in sand and rock, which after oxygen, is the most abundant element on earth! Silicon is transformed into silicone when combined with oxygen, carbon and hydrogen. Because it is an inert material, it does not react with food or liquids so no unpleasant flavors can transmit. It’s also non-toxic, hypo-allergenic and does not promote bacteria or fungus growth. Due to concerns regarding BPA, many people are switching to BPA-Free products. Silicone offers just that solution. Silicone DOES NOT contain toxic chemicals like bisphenol-A, lead, PVC and phthalates. Silicone is very durable so you won’t have to worry about disposal for a long time. No need to dispose and create waste regularly, and silicone is recyclable - although probably not through your city-wide recycling program. There are many specialty recycling facilities that recycle silicone. Send your Silikids products back to them and they will recycle it for you!
