I am so disappointed. I waited and waited for my Safe Sippy to come and it leaks. I did a review of BPA Free Sippy cups forever ago and The Safe Sippy was completely out of stock, so I’ve been waiting. When the company sent me one, I was out of my mind excited. Us “green moms” we get excited over silly stuff, I know. I washed my daughters cup, filled it with organic apple juice and away she went. Drip. Drip. Drip. All over my floor, sticky juice! What a bummer! Did the company not test the cup and see it spray and drip everywhere? My daughter would make a great tester!
I thought it was just me until I tweeted about this disappointment and Safe Mama, they felt the same way. Phew, I don’t have a defective cup and it isn’t just me. I learned through my tweet that they are making a new valve and Safe Mama will give that new cup a whirl. I want a new cup, too!!! Childish of me, I know.
Now, when a blogger is sent something for free, some may feel compelled to just give a product or a company a thumbs up. I don’t think too many bloggers do this but they might sugar coat the review because they did get the product for “free” to try. Many companies might hope this is the case with us, “Mommy bloggers” but I’m not one of those bloggers or people. If I like it, I’ll tell you. If it stinks, I’ll tell you. I want you, my readers to trust me and companies should respect that honestly and integrity…hence the readership. I’m not about bashing a company though, for the most part.
The Safe Sippy really has a sleek, slim and nice design. I love it, actually. It’s lightweight and very easy to fit in my small diaper bag. I use it daily, just outside. If it didn’t leak, I might give it a Green & Clean Mom approval but unless I try the new valve and can tell you it doesn’t leak like crazy, I just can’t recommend you spend your money on this. You’ll be mopping the floor like crazy if you do. I love the companies mission statement and what they’re doing but it has to not leak for me to say, buy this BPA free cup. If I give the new valve a try, I for sure will let you know my thoughts and I’m really hoping it won’t leak because again, I love the cup design.
Why not? Great tips for free!
