Tilty Cup giveaway!

***And here I am even tardier in actually picking a winner! Oy... So, I went to Random.org and they laughed at me when I told it to randomly pick an number between 1 and 2. Then I flipped a coin. Heads = comment 1, tails = comment 2. And it was Heads! So, the winner is The House of Sprout! Please send me your mailing address!****


Once again I'm tardy in getting a giveaway up. *sigh* I really do have the best of intentions.

Just to make it worse, somehow I managed to delete a bunch of emails (from my trash too) and I lost all the information I had for this giveaway, so I'm scrambling a bit there too. I'm almost certain though that I got this giveaway from MomSelect.

I was sent a two-pack of the Tilty Cup to try and a two-pack to giveaway! Since I lost the email that had all the information about the Tilty Cup I visited their website and pulled information from there.

In all truthfulness this was a difficult review for me, and I think mostly it was because Kiel already knows how to drink from a sippy cup. The Tilty Cup doesn't have a valve and therefore isn't leakproof. It took Kiel about 0.2 seconds to figure that piece out and cover the kitchen table and himself drop by drop with water from the cup. He certainly had no problem drinking from it, but he thought making a mess with it was far more fun. The Tilty Cup is designed to help kids learn how to use a sippy cup, and because of that it isn't leak proof for a reason. Their blog about how it was developed is interesting and worth a look if you are at this developmental stage with your baby.

Pro's: BPA and PVC free, great price at two cups for approx. six bucks.

Con's: It leaks, probably not any better than anything else out there for the toddler set (because it leaks).

So, I have a two-pack to giveaway. I'd love to hear how it works for someone with a baby who is just learning to use a sippy cup.

What a great invention! My two-year-old is so sippy cup dependent that he doesn't know you have to close your mouth to drink from a "big boy" cup - he gets a shower every time!
