Colorful but drains a little too fast
on February 27, 2012
My 22 month old and I have been playing with these spillers for a couple months. They are fun and colorful, but I was really hoping for cups that drained at different rates because of the various holes in them. My son loves playing with water, so I thought it would be fun for him to watch the water run out differently. These do have a variety of holes, but most of them seem to just drain really fast as if the holes are designed a little too big (it's like you're just pouring the water through). The head (1st cup), 2nd, and last cup are the only ones that have significant difference in draining that you can actually notice and enjoy. He does enjoy that on the few that do it and basically ignores the other cups. But they are colorful and it has been a big part of him learning his colors recently. They hook together, but don't stay together well. Some hooks are really tight and some loose. That's not why I got it, so I'm not that disappointed, but I'm not that impressed with how they hook or stay together.
Pros: bright colors, 3 cups drain slowly
Cons: 4 cups drain way too fast, hooks together clumsily and doesn't stay together
Overall, I don't regret buying them, but would have preferred them to be a little different.
