#CDLocal2Me Giveaway Hop Sponsor Spotlight- Silikids

I received a sample from Silikids for the sole purpose of this review

I'm all about finding easy items for my kids that are natural and take up little space! So I had contacted Silikids about their Sippy Top. You see, it's made of silicone and stretches to fit over any old cup and instantly turn it into a sippy cup. Genius right? Plus you can buy like 4-5 of them, stack them together and they take up SUPER little space, which is awesome!

They also sent me the Siliskin Glass with Sippy Top to make a full sippy cup, BUT it can be used as a regular glass as well now and later on when your child outgrows the sippy. This glass has a sleeve on it so it has more grip and diminishes the chance of breaking if it falls.

I love that this is a regular glass as well as a sippy cup.

I was a bit bummed that the sippy top didn't fit any cups in my house. But Silikids sells a glass for really cheap on their site. So you can get those and replace your small kids cups/glasses, plus they can be used later on and can stack together, so it's a good investment (even though a cheap one). 

The sippy is awesome!! It creates a vacuum seal so it stays on pretty tight and it's about 97% spill proof. If my son shakes it, it will splash a bit, but will not spill if dumped over or if it falls. 

I love the sleeve on the glass for better grip. Kids hands are like butter, so it's nice to have a glass that my toddler can safely hold and not drop as much. 

I love that the sippy top is just one piece. No valves, no straws to clean. It comes 100% clean with just a light washing. AND they're dishwasher safe which is, of course, the best part!

Silikids aren't made here in MI, but they are based in Traverse City which is AWESOME. I never knew that so it's nice to know they're close to home!

Price: The 8oz sippy with glass, top and sleeve is $12.95. The Sippy Top 2pk is $9.95. They also have a straw top, 3pk is $8.95. Replacement glasses (or to go with the sippy top) in 6 or 8oz are just $3 each.

Overall: ***** LOVE these new items!

For the hop, Silikids is offering one reader the chance to win a Silibib and Silimap. Value of $27

A big thank you goes out to Silikids for allowing me to review this product

I love this glass. It is perfect for learning to drink out of a cup... without the top. Much better than the plastic sippy cups on the market.

This is perfect for me! I have very limited cupboard space and being able to use existing glasses as sippy cups is amazing!

I love that you went so far as to even try if the sippy lip fit other cups in your house and inform us of the solution. :) Thanks!!
