Zoli Baby makes some very innovative products. Not least of all the Zoli Bot 6 oz. Straw Cup.
Why is this sippy cup even worth writing a whole post about?
The Bot is innovative in that it is a weighted straw sippy. Unlike most straw sippy cups, the Bot has a flexible straw with a weighted bottom, allowing your child to hold the cup at almost any angle and still get the goods (by goods, I mean liquid of course). No more frustration.
The straw is made of food grade silicone with a weighted steel ball. The cup, handles, and cover are made of polypropelene, which is non-toxic and notably BPA and Pthalate Free. A built in handle and flip top cap make the Bot easy to use and very sturdy. It looks great, too.
I know what you are thinking…does it leak? The answer: Most of the time, no. Like any sippy it is not completely “leak proof” (regardless of what any label says). I have only noticed leaking if the cup is over filled. When I over fill it I’ve noticed a little spill over through the straw as soon as the top is assembled. No big deal, I just wipe it up.
I’ve sent my almost two year old, Henry, to nap with this cup many times with no noticeable post-nap wet spots. The Bot is our #1 go-to cup in our house. Want some evidence? These pictures were snapped early this morning, and as I type this he is still sitting next to me drinking the last bits of his milk from the cup with no fuss.
So, in short this cup is great and you should buy one. Preferably here (shameless plug alert).
I would also recommend the extra straw and brush set, it’s just easier that way.
