The Lollacup Straw Cup is designed to make it easy for small children to sip: the straw is narrow, so kids aren't overwhelmed by the amount of liquid that comes through, and the straw is also cleverly weighted at the end so it "follows" the liquid as your child tilts the cup. Because of the weighted straw, kids can drink from any angle, and it's easy to get every drop of liquid out of the cup. Removable handles form the Lollacup Straw Cup's "wings" they help your baby grip her cup, but can be removed to fit into your cup holder. And the Lollacup Straw Cup is easier for you, too: because there are no valves, it?s easier to clean and assemble than your average sippy cup, and there are no tiny parts to misplace. A cleaning brush is included to make cleaning your Lollacup Straw Cup even easier. The Lollacup Straw Cup was featured on the popular "Shark Tank" TV show, and contains no BPA, phthalates, lead, PVC, nitrosamines, melamine, or biologically toxic chemicals. All parts are manufactured, assembled, and packaged in the USA.
