Disclosure: I received several cups and a placement for review from Silikids. All opinions are my own.
I get antsy when Kenzie drinks out of a glass cup and always have asked for plastic cups at restaurants or have had to grip tightly to the glass cup while she drinks out of a straw. Now that Mason has been leaning toward drinking out of cups, I was excited to try the children's glassware from Silikids. Silikids was founded in 2006 as the first mom-founded brand focusing on children’s products made entirely of silicone and glass.
The Siliskin Glass Cup for Kids is pretty neat. There is a silicone protective sleeve around the glass cup so that your children can easily grip it and drink from it without the constant worry that the cup will break. The Siliskin Top stretches perfectly over the cup to allow it to essentially become a sippy style cup. What's neat about this one piece design top is that it stretches to cover the top of most standard size cups with a diameter of 2-2.5 inches. Stash several in the diaper bag so you will always have them handy when out at restaurants.
Mason took to this cup like a champion and drank with ease. Mason walks around with his cup all around the house. He did drop it once from his high chair and I almost had a heart attack. Luckily, due to the patent-pending shock absorption design of the silicone sleeve, there were no cracks that I could see! I am so excited to transition into these awesome glasses and de-clutter my cabinets of the plastic.
The Silimap silicone placemat is a great companion when you are out and about due to its portability and compact fold. The kiddos can draw on this while waiting for their food to arrive. Make sure to use non-permanent markers and/or pens which can be wiped clean. I've been to many restaurants that do not offer such entertainment for kids so this is a great alternative to keeping your child occupied without tantrums. I love how large it is and that I can easily place in the dishwasher after fun doodling.
Silikids also offers adorable bibs and replacement glass cups. Make sure to check them out and pick up some for your child(ren)!
