Foogo - Is it worth the $$$

This is the Foogo insulated sippy cup by Thermos. The cost of this beauty is $14.99. It is stainless steel, so there are no worries about polycarbonate plastic leaching. While that was in the back of my mind... I had a new reason why I wanted to purchase.

Let me tell you a story. I was home with my little guy last Wednesday. I was sitting on the couch taking a little break, when all of a sudden... I got a whiff of something that smelled like vomit. I flew into action, looking all over when Zach was standing there, shaking a sippy cup. The valve was clearly not in place because you could hear it being shaken inside the cup and milk was flying all over the front of him. He thought this was hysterical. I realized he had the sippy cup that came home from daycare with him the night before. Immediately I panicked, wondering if he had drinken any of the tainted beverage.

So, the added benefit of this cup is that it keeps beverages insulated warm or cold for up to 6 hours. While that wouldn't even have helped me in that scenario, it was worth checking out. You would think this cup is too heavy for them, but he handles it just fine... carries it around under his arm, just like all of his other precious cups.

Was it worth the money??... Time will tell I guess. It is very easy to clean which is a bonus for me, along with a little piece of mind.

I can't wait to see if Zach likes the new sippy cup. I bought one for Seth months ago and he never took to it. I might try it again.

overall i love my foogo! however, word to the wise, Lucas has weaponized it. in fact, daycare asked me not to bring it because of this. i mean, when it hits you upside the head, you KNOW you've been nailed!
