I’m always on the look-out for innovative kids products that are healthy and safe for my little ones. So, when a high school friend (who is also a fellow eco-mom) sent me info about the EIO Kids Training Cup, I was instantly intrigued. Because it uses a regular 8 oz glass canning jar it has no BPA, phthalates or PVC. Oh, and its so cute!
The EIO is a training cup – not a sippy cup. Therefore, if its tipped over the beverage inside will slowly dribble out. This cup is thoughtfully designed to help kids learn how to drink from a regular cup with less mess, and so far Mack L-O-V-E-S it. We went for a nice walk the other night, and he wouldn’t leave the house until his EIO cup was safely tucked in the stroller. I think he feels like a big kid when drinking from it.
So far, I love it, too. Unlike regular sippy cups, there aren’t small plastic parts and valves that have to be removed before washing. And, the easy grip silicone sleeve prevents breaks when Mack inevitably drops it from his high chair. And, when Mack is big enough to drink without the lid he can still use the glass jar and sleeve as a regular cup.
TIP: this cup makes an excellent stocking stuffer for your favorite little ones. Order one from The Glass Baby Bottle just because the folks who run that site are so nice!
