Promoted Skills

Product Description

The Sip & Spin straw cup has a colorful wheel in a variety of themes that spins as liquid flows through the straw. The Sip & Spin is a cup made for children that makes hydration fun and easy. The cup features a no valve design (recommended by the American Dental Association) to help kids transition from bottles to adult cups by reinforcing sipping versus sucking. Clean up is as easy as running the dishwasher!

Skills

  • Children learn cause and effect with the Sip & Spin as they associate the oral movement of sipping as the reason for the spinning wheel to twirl.
  • The spinning action on the Sip & Spin cup provides kids with an incentive to master the novel art of sipping. Kids can start with the Zoomi Straw and advance to using the Sip & Spin Straw Cup.  
  • Inadequate hydration has implications for children’s health. The Sip & Spin cup provides kids with the incentive to drink more water and staying hydrated can improve physical and cognitive function.
