Does it's job - please understand what it's job is!!
on February 4, 2012
DISCLAIMER - I purchased the lid & sleeve without the glass jar, but my review is for the product in general and applies to this model, which includes a glass.
This is a great conversion cup. Before you buy it, though, it is important that you understand exactly what this cup is supposed to do, and what it is NOT supposed to do.
NOT throw proof
NOT for running around the house
NOT for the car
This cup is for older babies and toddlers who are converting to a regular adult cup. It is for use while seated at a table. If your toddler can drink from a cup, but spills around his mouth, this cup is great. If your toddler gets a bit wild with her arms at the table and accidentally knocks her cup over, this cup is great. If you find that ALL other small-sized cups have extremely narrow bases that tip easily, this cup is SUPER great (the jars are nearly the same size at the bottom as at the top). If your bigger kid just has a hard time holding onto a glass, or still wants a "special" cup of his own, this sleeve is great without using the top.
It was not hard for my 3 year old or my 1.5 year old to figure out where the sip-slot was. I just showed them a couple of times. Of course, you have to explain (in super serious "becoming a big girl" voice) that this is a glass... Don't drop it!! Kids are smarter than we give them credit for. But, if we let them run around the house with it just like a plastic spill-proof sippy cup, of course they will spill and break it!
Use your common sense, folks. Don't diss a perfectly good product, just because you didn't take time to train your children to be a big kid.
Also, my 2 had no trouble leaking around the threads - so I can't comment on the leaking issue. Amazon should have no trouble replacing a defective product.
