Playtex PlayTime Cups!
Making snack time, play time and anytime fun and mess-free. I love any product that makes my life easier. While I don’t have little wee ones anymore, that doesn’t mean that the messes cease. In fact, they haven’t slowed down.
So come meal time or snack time, I can expect a spill or two. While Mimi is able to drink out of a regular cup with no problem, she tends to be a bit clumsy when she is distracted. That often leads to a lot of spills and clean-up for me. To forgo the mess altogether, I use fun cups from Playtex. Ones that keep a seal and if they tumble, there is no mess. Cups kinda like the NEW Playtex PlayTime cups in fun designs.
Twist ‘N Click.
I am in!
Playtex® PlayTime™ cups have joined forces with some special friends to make playtime even more fun! The Playtex® PlayTime™ cups have enhanced Twist ‘n Click™ technology, with an audible click that lets you know they are guaranteed 100% leak and break–proof. This solves all of my problems and I’m sure those of many parents–everywhere!
Made for children 12m+, the cups have double walled insulation to help ensure drinks stay cool and fresh for twice as long** and are available with a spout or straw. For moms and their little ones who are always on-the-go, the Playtex® PlayTime™ cups are perfect for anywhere playtime takes them.
Playtex® cups feature three unique franchises:
• Thomas the Tank Engine
• My Little Pony
Mimi loves super heroes, in fact Batman is one of her absolute favorites. She thinks he is cool and has awesome cars and gadgets. Not to mention, he always gets the bad guys. When I asked her which cup she wanted to try, she immediately went for Batman. While she loves My Little Pony, she loves her supers.
She prefers to have cups with straws and she liked this feature. I like the 100% leak-proof quality and the size of the cup is perfect for her. It’s not too much and not too little.
One thing that has made me truly slap my palm to face is when I find a cup toppled over on my suede couches in the basement. The contents sat all night and you know what that means. I am in for a lot of scrubbing, vacuuming and cleaning. Well, you can guess, she left almond milk in this cup and I found it on its side on the couch the next morning. Not one drop! Thank-you Playtex gods, you saved not only my couch but, my sanity!
While I’m not cleaning up messes anymore, I am washing, rinsing this cup regularly. I don’t know about you but, I think that’s much better than scrubbing or lapping away spills! What is even better is the cups are BPA-free and dishwasher safe. So, you can just load them and go. If you want to try it out for yourself, the Playtex® PlayTime™ cups are available at all major retailers across Canada for a suggested retail price of $7.99. You can get yours in-stores or here.
I think we will have to add a few more to our roster because they work so well. Adjusting the lid is super easy. If you follow the arrows and the way the ridges flow, you’ll get it in a snap! You can definitely tell that it is a tight seal, you hear it click. The straw comes apart easily for cleaning. It’s an all around fun and effective cup, great for wee ones and even the bigger kids who are little spill makers!
Would your kids love the NEW licensed cups?
Let me know, til then–cheers m’deres!
