No More Spills! Contigo Debuts Leak-Proof Kids Cups

It seems like every kids’ cup promises not to leak. And then we get it into our diaper bag and learn the truth.

But we’ve tested these great AUTOSEAL Kids Trekker Cups from Contigo ($12 for a pack of two) and they really live up to their promise.

These cups are intended for children who have outgrown sippy cups, but may not yet have outgrown spills.

While recommended for ages four to twelve, we’ve tested them with a 2-year-old and a 5-year-old and they both love them.

Once they’ve mastered the little trick of pushing the button to take a drink, kids will adore carrying around these cups that are a lot like mom’s coffee cup. (Contigo actually makes adult travel mugs based on the same leak-proof principles.)

And we love that they’re BPA-free, phthalate-free, and PVC-free since we then get all the conveniences of plastic without any of the worries. And, most importantly, no leaks!

I LOVE these! I bought them from Costco a year ago for my 3 year old, and HE LOVES THEM! A year later, we are still using them almost on a daily basis and they wear well. Also,they are ABSOLUTELY spill-proof! Had I known they were going to be this awesome and last so long I would’ve bought more but they only had 1 package left- 3 for $8 @ Costco a year ago.

These are the best cups, but hard to clean. They also make coffee cups.

Bobbi, can you explain what’s hard to clean about them? I’m interested in these cups, but hard to clean is definitely a draw back. Are they dishwasher safe?

Hi, I’ve been reading and watching some disgusting posts and videos about mold, worms and unidentified objects found in kids juice boxes and juice pouches. I routinely send them to school with my son. Never again!! I just purchased these bottles for him, at least I can see what’s going in them and I know I can fill them with healthier options as well 🙂
