I bought two of these straw cups for my 7 month old daughter and they are great! She learned how to suck out of a straw without me ever having to "teach" her and loves these cups. Personally, I love the safe plastic and the fact that the weighted end of the straw keeps the straw in the liquid no matter how they have the cup turned.

The one concern I had about using a straw cup instead of a traditional sippy was possible spilling. But even when she has it turned upside down it hardly ever leaks. Maybe a few drops of water here and there, but no big deal. The end of the straw that baby drinks from is almost solid, but with a few slits cut in it. So baby can easily suck liquid out (no special biting the valve or anything) but it helps minimize spilling.

This cup is great and has survived being thrown to the hard floor many times.

**Update: Some leaking issues and a solution:

My daughter is now almost 14 months and these cups are still my first choice. However, I have had a few problems with them - one cup cracked on the bottom (but my daughter does bang them around a lot) and I've had more leaking issues than I had hoped. First, ZoLi was great and replaced the broken cup with no questions asked (and it had been many months since I purchased it). Second, I figured out that the top "mis-threads" really easily. It's hard to even tell that it is not threaded properly unless I look at it from the side because it will feel like it goes on right, but is actually a bit crooked. When I fix this and am really careful to thread it levelly, I have no leaks.

Delilah would not drink from a regular sippy so I decided to go the straw route. She loved this sippy and so did I. She picked up on how to do it immediately. I love the straw on this cup. It is very flexible and not hard to drink from and the weight at the bottom is fantastic. There are 2 very large downsides! First one is they are not easy to clean. You have to get a special brush from Zoli to clean it appropriately and I would not put the top into the dishwasher. Second (and this is a biggie in my opinion) they are not durable at all! I believe if you are going to design a cup for an infant/toddler it must be able to withstand a few throws now and then...not this cup. The top cracked after about a week. I contacted Zoli and they immediately sent me a new cup...unfortunately that one cracked as well. I will definitely give Zoli customer service a 10 in customer satisfaction!! They sent me 2 replacement cups, a replacement kit which consisted of 2 extra straws and the aforementioned cleaning brush! So far the new 2 have not cracked but I am not holding my breath. I am giving this cup 3 stars mainly for the customer service I received and not the cup itself. Although you can feel good knowing if something does go wrong with the cup they will take care of you!

I've had this cup for a month. I put it through the dishwasher and I bought the OXO sippy cup cleaning tools but you just can't get the straw 100% clean.

I noticed that, apart from the lid leaking, it was okay initially. But then I saw little black specks in the straw. No matter how much I scrubbed, those specks stayed, like they were embedded in the plastic. Then as I was inspecting it more closely, I saw them in the ring of the straw, right where the straw goes through the lid. I pulled the straw out and the entire ring that is partially hidden by the lid was encrusted with black!

I felt so sick knowing that whatever my daughter drank touched that black bacteria!

For $11 a cup, it's just not worth the convenience of a weighted straw. I feel much better using the disposable take and toss, which I can clean thouroughly. If they could come up with a better system, I would consider buying again but they need to fix the straw and leaking lid.

:(

I am amazed that this cup gets such good ratings from anyone. The weighted straw technology that allows a baby/toddler to drink the last drip is in several cups - not unique. And the Zoli cup leaks like none other! The threading to screw the lid on has only 1.5 threads meaning, if you don't put it on perfectly straight, the entire contents will be in your tote bag or floor in seconds. Most importantly, the straw is literally a FOUNTAIN of liquid coming out all over your table or lap if you fill the cup too high or, as someone else noted, if perhaps the liquid starts to warm, or after a child has sucked from it, wait 3 minutes, and liquid starts oozing out the straw all over everything. Don't EVER take the Zoli on a plane - talk about milk or water EVERYWHERE! To me, this cup is the worst sippy cup on the market. Hands down, if you like the weighted straw idea, get the InnoBaby cup. It has the leaking issue out the straw too, but at least it has a pressure value that you can release to stop the leaking.

I thought the idea behind the cup was ingenious. My 1 year old took to the straw immediately and I was relieved to finally find a sippy cup that she would use. At first I only used water and it was fine. Then I started to put milk in it and like other posters have commented on, it started to leak. I was really frustrated because I didn't know why milk was coming back up the straw and making a mess. My instincts where to screw the top tighter and that just made it worse. I discovered after a couple of days that if I left the top looser, the pressure would lessen and milk would stop coming up the straw. When I say loose, I don't mean so that the top doesn't stay on. Instead, just screw the top on but don't force it tight. Liquid will not leak from where the cup and top meet if you tip it over AND it prevents the pressure from building up inside the cup and spilling from the straw. We love this cup!

I purchased the cup in March and now my boy is 18 months old chewed one of the flip on the top of the straw, luckily I catch that before my boy swallowed the part, already contacted the zoli customer service and they agreed to refund the amount I paid for the cup, still waiting for the checks, will update here if I received that or not.

But one warning parents, if your baby able to chew off more then just the top, that choking hazard and this product needed to recall.

Please see the pictures I uploaded on Amazon for prove.

UPDATE: I got the full refund from Zoli.

I loved this cup when I first bought it. The straw follows the milk and gets every last drop which is great. I was recommending it to all my friends. However as time went on the cup started leaking more and became the worst cup I have ever used for my son. Not only was it a huge mess because of all the leaks (I always made sure the lid was on properly) but both of the cups ended up breaking after just a few months (one got a crack in the straw and the plastic part). Such a huge waste of money. Definitely not at all worth it for the price. I wouldn't buy this cup even if it was half the price. I switched to tommee tippee brand and so far they are great and cost a lot less! Please don't buy this unless you are okay with throwing your money away.

First of all, it is a decent cup. The small size combined with easy-to-hold handles make it a great choice for little hands. The weighted straw really does get almost all the liquid out, which is a nice change from some of the other cups out there (hint, hint PLAYTEX!!!) that leave a 1/4 inch or more in the bottom.

Unfortunately, the cons have outweighed the pros, in our opinion. First, the straw is kind of a pain to get out and put in. It's made of some sort of stretchy plastic/rubber/silicone/whatever so that when you pull it to get it out of the lid it just keeps stretching. You really need small fingers to grasp the straw where it meets the underside of the lid to take it out without risking snapping the straw. Similar problems exist when putting the straw back in the cup. It stretches when you pull it through the hole in the lid. The key is wiggling the straw as you pull to prevent it from breaking.

Second, it leaks. No, it's not a huge amount - we've definitely seen worse. However, for $15 we don't want to see leaks at all! The problem is that liquid does not go back down the straw into the cup when the child releases suction. It remains in the straw. As soon as the straw is tipped and touches something (ie your carpet) the liquid is released from the straw and comes out, creating a mess. Again, it's not a huge mess when it leaks - it's just something to keep in mind.

Third, the price. In order to pay this price for a child's cup, we expect great things. However, the cheap 2-for-$7 Munchkin cups give about the same results. This cup just isn't worth it. We have found, for those interested, that the Vital Baby Straw Cups (about $5 each) are EXCELLENT.

I never write reviews but had to for we love love this sippy cup! We have tried everything-sorry to mention brand names but if it helps other buyers--munchkin (the straw sippy that doesn't have a closure is good but the one with the close lid is soooooo hard to suck out of, we tried it and was amazed at how hard they expect a baby to suck to get water out of the bottle), Nuby (bought it b/c of good review and friends recommendations but it leaks like crazy. And only if the baby/toddler bites on the plastic suction area but no matter how tight I close the cup it will leak~so threw them all out). Our toddler loves the handles, the straw is so soft and gentle. We had a hard time getting the bottle away from him for he loved it so much! I'm going out to buy another one!

We bought these sippy cups because we like that the straw moves with the cup. The description says they are leak proof and the three that we own all leak like crazy. They leak out of the straw because of the pressure and they leak from the lid where it screws onto the cup. We finally threw them away, after owning them for 3+ months and replaced them with some $3 ones from Walmart that my son loves! I will NEVER purchase these again.
