I was really excited when I was contacted to do a review of the Haberman anywayup Bird Cup and Sippy Cup, I have had some trouble getting Boo to drink from cups and have tried all sorts of types from free flow to non drip and designs and styles so more styles of cups to try was definitely a good thing.
I will start with the Bird Cup as this is the one that Boo has used the most. It is also my favourite in terms of design, I love the bright green colour and I love the design, so cute.
It’s a refreshing change from either pink/blue combinations. The see-through ‘belly’ of the bird lets you see how much water has is left, which is handy as I do like to keep an eye on this as I worry that Boo doesn’t drink enough.
The spout of the cup is different from the other cups we have tried and reminds me almost of a variflow teat from a bottle, the more that Boo sucks the faster the water comes out, which I think is a good idea and would be very helpful for babies who are moving from bottle to cup.
The fact that Boo even entertains the idea of drinking from this cup is a success to be honest but the fact that she actually reaches out for it, and actually seems to enjoy using the cup, is something which I could never have imagined.
I think it is due to the style of the spout, even though she has never really taken to bottles either, but I think that fact that she is in control of how much water comes out is the key thing.
For me, I love the fact that the cup is simply a ‘cup’ and a lid, no little bits which need to be taken apart and cleaned, (great for timesaving!) And the non spill spout means that I can just keep it in my changing bag when we are out and about and don’t have to worry about it, or keep track of a lid. The Anywayup Bird Cup holds up to 250ml which is enough to not need refilling even if you are out for a while. It is also dishwasher and microwave safe too.
All in all I can say I really like the Haberman anywayup Bird Cup, and more importantly Boo likes using it, drinking from it, and biting it! I would definitely recommend it.
The second cup is the Haberman anywayup 360 and although it is mean for 18 months plus I have given it too Boo to try a couple of times and I am surprised at how fast she picked up how to drink from it!
The design means that the cup can be drank from at any point on the rim, but the plastic disc inside means that water does not pour out everywhere if it is tipped up too far, great for when babies are learning to control how to drink from a ‘proper’ cup and it really does bridge the gap between a free flow sippy cup and a ‘normal’ cup.
It is also microwave and dishwasher safe, and dismantles easily for cleaning. Even though it seems to come apart in lots of pieces it is easy and quick to fit back together again. The lid also means that even if it is upside down in your bag there will be no spills!
The design of the cup is great, simple and I think Boo will get a lot of use out of this over the next few months, I also think it will be handy even when she is drinking from a ‘normal’ cup to have to use when we go out and we need to stay clean with no spills!
I have also been given a third cup, a very funky Haberman anywayup Cow Cup to giveaway! I love the design, it’s neutral gender-wise and very striking looking!
The Cow Cup is dishwasher and microwave safe, and holds up to 250ml. It has the same non-spill spout as the bird cup and I don’t doubt it will be every bit as fantastic as Boo’s Bird Cup!
