Review: Tommee Tippee Drinks Cups & Magic Mat

The lovely people at Tommee Tippee recently sent us a selection of drinks cups to try out with Little Man as well as one of their Magic Mats. Little Man can be fussy with the types of cups he drinks from so I was looking forward to trying out some different ones. We’re also trying to introduce bowls and plates to Little Man’s meal times and thought the Magic Mat may be a welcome helping hand.

Tommee Tippee Explora 4-7 Months

This Tommee Tippee cup is a great starter cup although it does have a valve in it so may be better as a ‘next stage’ cup rather than baby’s very first cup. The handles make it easy to hold and they’re made of an easy grip material too. It comes with a plastic cap for storage or transportation and holds just the right amount of water for those first days of weaning. Little Man drank easily from this cup.

Tommee Tippee Explora 7-12 Months

This Tommee Tippee Cup is one of their next stage cups which is a nice progression from the 4-7 month cup – It has a similar spout but has a larger capacity and no handles. Little Man drank from this easily even though it has a valve. There’s a cap on the top of the cup that folds back out of the way when in use and this really was a great feature – I love how the cap won’t get lost as it will always be there with the cup!

Tommee Tippee Tip It Up Soft Spout 12 Months+

Little Man drank easily from this cup even though he is slightly younger than the recommended age and found the soft silicon spout natural to drink from. The Tip It Up cup has a large capacity and is well designed to give a natural holding position in the centre of the cup. This cup will definitely be used for a long time to come.

All of the Tommee Tippee cups were easy to clean and didn’t leak at all. They are definitely a cup manufacturer that I would buy from again in the future as they have such a large versatile range.

Magic Mat

I’m sure the Tommee Tippee Magic Mat will keep Tommee Tippee bowls and plates stuck to it indefinitely. The problem we had is we don’t own any Tommee Tippee plates or bowls and found that no other plate or bowl would stick to it as the bottom has to be perfectly smooth – Without any lips, dents or even ‘dishwasher safe’ symbols.

This aside, we found that as soon as we put the Magic Mat on the highchair Little Man was able to peel it straight off. This makes me feel that even if we had been using a Tommee Tippee plate or bowl the same thing would happen. I think for now we’re going to continue to put Little Man’s food directly on his high chair!

  1. Izebella has the Tommee tippee straw cup. I tried so many different cups, some of them she found impossible to get anything out. The straw cup is the best one we found. Non spill and so easy to get the liquid out, it’s also very durable. She throws it from her high chair all the time so it has to be.

  2. The 12+ drinks bottle looks really good, I think i’ll search one down and see how A gets on with it, although I keep being told by health visitors that she should be drinking from a free flow spout blah blah blah… we’ll see how messy that is, I fear a soaked baby situation may occur!

    We have a wooden highchair so nothing sticks to it anyway!

  3. The Mothers say – Great review. We love that you’ve been so honest. We’ve used Tommy Tippee cups before and always thought they were very good. What a shame about the mat thought. PS We are loving your photos – your 2 are VERY cute and hope that they become members of the GL Gang over at kid GL loves 🙂 #triedtested
