Rated 5 out of 5 by eLiz34 Twist n Shout! Our Go-To Cup.
After trialing several different brands to the delight of my local baby store ;), hands down, I prefer (read: love) this insulated straw cup.
(+) Love the twist n sip function - drop the cup, no big deal - the straw is tucked in, clean, and not on the floor.
(+) Toddler friendly - my kids love being able to twist the cup open All. By. Themselves! Whether it took a few seconds when they were at the intro age for the cup or a quick "I'm so tricky" at an older age - they like the function and sense of mastery. Having a cup they love from 1-4 y/o+ so far has been awesome.
(+) Assembly - I find the assembly to be quick and clear. After trialing a few other brands that have either thin straws or multiple plastic pieces you need to get just right, I really appreciate the quick assembly of this cup for this momma on the go.
(+) Easy to clean. I do use a straw brush and bottle bush to clean the cup but I find due to the width of the straw and the cup that it is a quick breeze.
(+) Volume - The 9 oz. size is great for an event. We do a lot of Chicago exploring, so I appreciate a size that accommodates some adventures.
(+) It does not leak! This should have been closer to the top. Raise the roof. No leaks.
While I did receive this cup complimentary to review, I was quite excited upon receipt as the features I love have remained constant. Worth every penny of its already reasonable cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeckyB Great cup!
I'll begin by saying that I received this as a free sample product. That said, my review is based only on my experience with the cup.
This is definitely a quality cup that lives up to it's claims. It's very durable as well as cute. The colors and designs are so cheerful! I love that it's a safer plastic and though it's dishwasher safe, we prefer to wash it by hand. It does take a little time to learn how to safely dissemble it. To clean, we just fill a bowl with hot soapy water and let the parts soak for awhile, rinse and let air dry.
Two issues to keep in mind:
1. The straw is not as durable as the cup itself. If you're child is a chewer, you may need to keep an eye on the condition of the straw. It can be trimmed if the end becomes frayed.
2. And second, if you keep the cup filled and refrigerated, you need to release the pressure by loosening and then re-tightening the lid. If you do that you should have no problems with leaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrystalM Love this cup
I received the my twist n sip insulated cup as a free sample to test and review. I'm glad I did. I loved it, as well as my son. The design is cute and it worked well. Easy to use without any leaks. Washing is easy as well. It kept my son's drink cold for longer than expected. I'll be purchasing more for my little guy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Catharine Perfect sippy cup for the germ phobic parent
I was pleased when I received the Philips Avent insulated sippy cup in the mail to review for my two-year-old daughter. The design is well thought out. The top lid turns so the straw bends and is hidden under the lid. This is a great feature so it doesn’t leak and other kids don’t put their mouths on the straw (very sanitary for a germ phobic mom!). The cup is easy to take apart and clean, the straw separates into two pieces to wash, I sent the top of the cup and straw pieces through the dishwasher and hand washed the insulated base. I really like this cup; the only negative thought is that it doesn’t keep liquids cold for a very long time. I filled the insulated cup with milk and stored it in the refrigerator in the morning. Later that morning as we left the house I put the cup in my bag and left it in there at room temperature for four hours. When I opened the cup to check the temperature of the milk, it had warmed to room temperature. In the future, I will be sure to have the milk finished within three hours. Overall, I am really pleased with the sippy cup and look forward to purchasing a few more to add to my collection.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MeganL A good cup, but more parts to clean
I received a free sample of this product to review and was excited to try out another cup with my 2 year old. This cup works very well and overall I don't have very many complaints. The design is cute, it is durable and easy to use. I love that it is insulated so I can put milk in it an throw it in the diaper bag. If it is shut, there is no way my daughter could open it on her own- which could be good or bad, depending on the situation. The only complaint I have is that it has a few more pieces to clean than other cups we have.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kphilly13 It doesn't leak!
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest review. We have gone through at least 30 sippy cups in our house over the years, so we definitely know a good one when we see it. This one is fantastic! I love how I can throw it in my leather handbag and not worry if it will leak - it never has. I also love the twist feature that keeps the straw clean when it`s not in use. I`m a clean freak so this is a huge deal for me. It`s easy for my child to hold, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brittannieb Amazing!
I received a free sample of this cup for my son to try. I was very impressed! I thought the straw would drip when tipped over but it did not. It was knocked over and even thrown in my diaper bag and not one drop leaked. It was very easy to clean, the entire straw was easy to remove clean and assemble again. I also noticed that when I filled the cup with ice and a drink it stayed cold for a very long time. I am very happy with this product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by sjmh This is a great germ-free and easy to use cup!
I am highly impressed with the Avent Philips Twist n Sip! I received a free sample in exchange for agreeing to write a review and am so glad to have had the chance to try it.
First, I love that this cup remains BPA free...all parts of it. But my very favorite part is the fact that the straw twists inside the cap so it stays clean and germ-free! So easy and fun for little ones to keep their drinks clean. It is also a good size for drinks and easy to hold.
The only part that was a slight drawback (and why I would give it 4 stars vs. 5) is that it can leak in certain circumstances and is not totally spill proof. For just everyday use, such as filling it up and taking it in the car, it won`t leak. But for some reason, it will leak when you change temperatures. The straw will back up a little and then leak out once you open it. Nothing major, but enough that it`s a little irritating. However, we mostly use this with water or juice that doesn`t need to be refrigerated and don`t run into that situation often.
I will absolutely be buying more of these cups. They are easy to clean and put back together without a fear of mold growing in them. You won`t go wrong buying these cups!
