Oxo Tot Drinking Cups - Review and Giveaway


Lately Ive been finding it really hard to convince Lily to drink. She will happily drink her milk, but when it comes to water or juice she has never been a big drinker.

So when Oxo Tot asked me if I would like to review their toddler drinking cups I thought it would be a great chance to see if varying what she drinks out of would help.

Oxo Tot sent me a Training Cup in green and a Twist Top Water Bottle in pink. All cups are available in green, pink or blue.


I Love the designs of the bottles, I always find Oxo Tots products to be child friendly but still stylish.

I firstly let Lily try the Twist Top bottle. It holds quite a lot of water at 340ml and that is great for us as we head out a lot and have had times where we run out of water. The bottle has a nice soft comfortable straw for her to drink out of which extends quite far out for easy drinking. Then when you are ready to put the bottle away you simply twist and the straw hides inside the lid keeping it nice and clean. It also comes with a non slip carrying loop for your child to hold when carrying it around. Though I did notice that Lily walked holding it with both of her hands when caring it around. 


This bottle we have used loads and Lily really enjoys drinking out of it. It is a little heavy for her to hold when it is full up but she just about manages when she has got a good grip on the bottle. I really think that it having a straw encourages Lily to drink more as its a lot more fun to do. Its also great for no spills and I love the fact that it twists to pop the straw in and out. Its very clever. Though I must admit Im not so clever and keep twisting it the wrong way and end up opening the bottle instead and nearly spilling the water on myself. haha

At £8 I think this bottle is a really good option at a great price for your child and if its a bottle with a straw you are looking for I can definetly recommend this one to you.


Next cup is the Training Cup. As Lily is coming up to 2 years old, learning to drink out of a cup is definetly something I would like her to learn. We go to a play group where they offer cups of water and I would love Lily to be able to join in with using one without my help. But at the moment if you give Lily a cup of water she tips it to much and to fast and the water pours everywhere.
This is where the Oxo Tot Training cup comes in handy. Its shaped like a cup and has a handy soft grip part in the middle. It also has a transparent insert in the top with holes around it to allow water to come out but in a controlled way with a controlled flow that prevents the water pouring out to quickly and everywhere. This cup is great because after you have finished learning how to drink, you can remove the insert and use it as a regular cup. This cup holds a little less water than the other at 200ml. But I think that is just enough for a cup.



Lily did really well with the training cup and it did help for a lot less spills. I think she really enjoyed drinking the big girl way. It was really easy for her to hold and a nice cup to use during dinner time. I loved how easy it was to open to fill up and really easy to clean to. One thing I would of liked with this cup would be a lid or some way of closing the holes so It can be taken with us to places to.

This cup retails at £6.60 which is a great price for such a good quality cup that will last your toddler though training and beyond.


You can view both cups and others at the drinking section of the Oxo Tot Website.

  47. I like the training cup, as I've recently read that drinking from straws gives you puckered lips like a smoker!!! Not very glamourous.
