Reflo Smart Cups are innovatively designed to help small children transition from using a sippy cup to drinking from a regular cup. They come in several bright colors and have a clear insert that blocks the majority of the liquid from spilling out of the cup. I had a chance to try these cups with my two-and-a-half-year-old and was amazed at the simple practicality of these spill-reducing cups.
Reflo Smart Cups each come with a round insert that fits into the grooves that run along the sides of the cup. The insert stays in place once firmly pressed into the cup and allows a trickle of liquid to pour out of the cup. This amount is enough to sip but not enough to create a huge mess if the cup is overturned.
The clear insert fits snugly within the cup. It is easy to remove by intentionally tugging on the small handles attached to the top of the insert. The insert also doesn't easily fall out once in place.
Reflo cups help kids learn how to manage a regular cup while minimizing spills. If a cup is accidentally knocked over, the liquid spills out in a trickle, while the majority of the liquid is blocked by the plastic insert.
The cup will slowly empty over time, but the smart cup design allows parents to turn the cup right-side up before too much liquid has spilled. We've only had a few tiny spills while using these smart cups. The cup design also helps prevent a child from dumping the entire contents of the cup into their lap.
We primarily use Reflo Smart Cups for meals at the table. My little one enjoys the novelty of drinking from a "big kids" cup and the bright cup colors make mealtime fun. Reflo Smart Cups are available in red violet, blue, green, and clear.
Reflo Smart Cups are a smart alternative to sippy cups and a great transitional tool for children to learn to drink from an open cup. They are as easy to use as drinking from any ordinary cup without the worry of big spills. The cup insert controls the flow of beverage anywhere along the cup's rim at virtually any angle.
Reflo cups are BPA-free, phthalate-free and dishwasher safe. They are designed for safety and hygiene with no moving parts to trap dirt and germs. Each cup holds up to 6 ounces of your child's favorite beverage. My little one enjoys using Reflo cups for drinking juice and chocolate milk, so I'm thankful that spills are minimal!
