As much as I wanted my kindergartner to graduate to a regular drinking glass, I wasn’t thrilled about the prospect of wiping up more spills than I already do. Alas, the faded Thomas train on her favorite cup seemed to be crying out, “Retire me, please!” What a perfect opportunity to try out Siliskin Glass, a new line of BPA-free drinking cups for the child who’s too big for a sippy cup, but hasn’t yet mastered the dexterity of handling glassware–or for the moms who are too chicken to let them. The name alone was enough to grab my attention–what’s silly about broken glass? And that’s exact the point. Siliskin is a protective silicone wrapper that “hugs” a glass tumbler, so that kids can drink with reckless abandon and get a handle (literally) on their cup. My daughter loves that she can drink her OJ without rattling my caffeine-induced nerves at the breakfast table. And I love that Siliskin Glass is dishwasher-safe and BPA-free, making clean-up and safety a snap for this busy mom.
In a Nutshell: With easy-grip glassware, there’s no need to cry over spilled milk.
