Welcome back, babynames.co.uk reader!
Today we have a neat feeding product for you all, the Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup. It promises to eliminate mess while your toddler is drinking from it and we decided to put that claim to the test. Read on for our independent and unbiased review of the product!
“Let’s face it: toddlers are a messy bunch, especially when first navigating sippy cups. Now imagine a world in which drinks didn’t spill at all — not in your diaper bag, not on your nightstand, and not even onto your eager-to-learn child. No, it’s not a miracle, exactly — it’s Munchkin’s Miracle® 360° Trainer Cup. The first sippy cup invented with both parents and kids in mind, the Miracle® 360° Trainer Cup eliminates messes and supports kids’ dental health all at once. Drinking from anywhere around the rim, like a regular cup, helps support normal muscle development in a child’s mouth. And with no extra spouts, straws or pieces, the Miracle® 360° Trainer Cup is easy to use and even easier to clean. We’ll say cheers to that!”
We love the simplicity of this sippy cup – it is a small, rounded cup with two sturdy handles that are ergonomically designed for your child to grip it easily. The colours (there are four for you two chose from: blue, pink, green and orange) are very bright and will surely catch your child’s eye and keep them focused as they drink. In terms of how it looks, it is an attractively made cup that is sure to appeal to your child.
However, the thing we are most impressed with is the 360 degree drinking edge that allows your child to drink from any angle. All the have to do is pick a spot, tilt the cup back and suck on the valve’s edge – no fuss and no mess! Combined with the fact that the lid is completely spill proof, this really is a bit of a miracle cup! We tested it out by filling the cup to the brim (it can hold 207ml of liquid) and then turning it upside down and nothing came out – the valve is designed to remain sealed if no one is drinking from it. We are confident that you can throw this into a diaper bag while you are on the go and you won’t have no worries about leakages.
The sippy cup is made from a strong, BPA-free plastic and the valve itself is made of silicon. It is easy to clean as it separates out into three components, all of which can either be washed in the sink or tossed into the dishwasher. It dries easily as well, either with a clean towel or just letting it air dry on a rack. Because it is easy to clean and there are no hidden crevices, there is no risk of any type of mould developing in the cup itself.
Because it is made from a fairly thick plastic, we tested its capacity to hold warm liquids. There was no sign of melting or damage to the cup, so your child can drink warm liquids from this cup safely. It is also BPA-free, so that gives extra peace of mind as well.
This is one of the more practical cups on the market, not only because it is spill proof but because it is also designed with a child’s dental health in mind. The 360 degree drinking edge helps support muscle development in a child’s mouth, so that is a really neat little bonus that comes with this cup. It’s simplicity is another thing we really like, as we do not have to fiddle with any small parts, valves or straws that other sippy cups have. We also really like the handles as they are designed to be gripped by small hands that may not be big enough to hold the cup’s body. Again, Munchkin’s attention to detail really sets them apart from any other baby brand.
Munchkin’s Miracle 360 Trainer Cup is currently retailing on Amazon.co.uk for £4.99 (on sale from it’s usual price of £5.49), which we think is a great value for money for such a fantastic product. Its special features alone more than makes up for the price you pay and you’ll be saving yourself a lot of hassle with not having to deal with spills.
OUR VERDICT: 👏👏👏👏👏
In summary: If you are in the market for a new sippy cup for your child, we can wholeheartedly recommend the Munchkin Miracle 360 Trainer Cup – it is easy to use and clean, absolutely spill proof and your child will no doubt love drinking from it!
