I have bought a lot of different sippy cups for my kids and the first years disney cups are by far the best! I love that they don't have a hard to clean stopper and they are just two pieces, the cup and the top. I absolutely hate cups with stoppers that are useless if the stopper becomes damaged or lost and I also don't like the cups that are hard to hand wash. These cups are perfect. No stopper and easy to clean plus they don't leak unless they are getting old which is no big deal as they are reasonably priced and I don't mind buying another once they become worn out. It takes a lot of usage before that happens, but after about 6 months or so the rubber becomes weak and it will leak if it's tipped over. I like the hard spout cups because they are nothing like a bottle and don't cause the problems that rubber spout cups cause. They come in all kinds of designs and they are my little guys favorite. I Definately recommend them and they are also easy to find in most stores.
